Family TiesIt may have been the Me Decade.

Law' would forever change (for the better) cop, medical and legal dramas; and no idea was too high concept to fill a primetime spot (time-travelling physicist? check; housewife-turned-CIA op? check; New York City beauty in love with a subterranean monster? check).

The bottom line: They all add up to 10 years of fine channel surfing -- and our awesome list of the 40 best series of the 1980s.

Hayley Mills in 'The Parent Trap'Get together with your family to watch the original version of 'The Parent Trap.'

Kids today may be more familiar with the Lindsay Lohan remake, but this 1961 version has even more laughs and heart. A young Hayley Mills plays twins Susan and Sharon with such an effortless charm that kids will never guess a split screen was used. Kids will also love the twists and turns to the story, which has two long lost twins switching places to reunite their parents.

And with screen legend Maureen O'Hara as the mother, parents can join in on the fun, too. The mere site of Mills will have them switching places with their kids and reliving the Disney magic all over again.
