Take That, JohnL!

Gary the Ex-Donk's innaugural 80's Crush Post subject? Erin Gray.

Hear, hear!

I agree with Gary that the episode of Buck Rodgers with the Vorvon was about as cheesy as they got. BUT, I would also point out that Wilma trying to bite Buck's neck while in the Vorvon's possession made a serious impression on my warped adolescent mind.

Robbo - I'm hoping to post some pleasant surprises this year for the Crush Meter. And I take requests - but only from you and Steve, oh wizards of the way-back machine!

Personally, I always had the hots for Princess Ardala, and thought Buck was an idiot for not taking her up on her offer -- you get to save Earth AND bag some serious yum -- sounded like a win/win to me.

Mmmmm. "Eighties Crush" seems to be competition for the "Flash in the Pan Babes" series by yours truly. Bring it on!

My response is here.

LMC - I'm trying not to step on your toes, here. But I admit you are my inspiration.

I don't see any conflict of interest. LMC is focusing on flashes in the pan. Your crush-worthy selections are more long term. (And if you don't include Catherine Bach's Daisy Duke, I'll be very disappointed.)

Ardala may have been a Flash-in-the-TV-Pan, but she's still one of my crushes years later.
