There was no shortage of action on television, either. From cops and robbers to talking cars and aliens, there was just about every flavor of adventure on offer.

We've gathered just about every action show from the 1980s — detectives, pilots, cowboys, superheroes, time travelers and spies. And then we punched out of some words and letters. To give you a hand, we've provided the airdates. 

See if you can fill in the blanks and get at least 50 out of the 70. Yeah, it would have been awesome if there were a perfect 80 of them, but what can you do.
