Poll: Favourite Canadian TV Show – the 70s vs. the 80s

The first round of the Great Canadian TV Playoff is complete and the winners of the 1970s, 80s, 90s and 2000s have been decided.

Now on to the next round, where the winners of each decade face off. First up: SCTV, representing the 1970s, goes head-to-head with Degrassi, on behalf of the 1980s.

Unlike the Stanley Cup playoffs, TV, Eh’s Great Canadian TV Playoff boasts solely homegrown head-to-head matchups of television shows. Through the rest of the month, we’ll pit eight television shows (just like the NHL) from the 1970s, 80s, 90s and 2000s against one another until the final showdown to name the top Canadian TV series of all time on May 29.

Cast your vote now and spread the word — the winner of the 90s and the 2000s battle it out starting on Wednesday!

One thought on “Poll: Favourite Canadian TV Show – the 70s vs. the 80s”

  1. I voted for Degrassi High. I vaguely recall my babysitter watching Degrassi back in the 80s but I was too young to watch it and get it. I actually read the books that were based on the tv series back in the 90s and began liking the series. I saw the School’s Out movie when it aired prior to the debut of the new Degrassi series back in 2001 or 2002. It wasn’t until a couple years ago that I actually got to see the entire tv series when it appeared on Netflix. What I really liked about the series is that it holds up well in the present day despite the oldskool clothes, filming and setting. The stories still ring through.
