I wish the sitcom was rerun, but because Lynn Redgrave won that large lawsuit against Universal for wrongful termination, the studio refuses to syndicate it. They don't want to pay her heirs anything in residuals after the large settlement they had to dole out. And what a shame, because the series was so great and should be seen again.

Thanks for posting "The Hospital" - I love everything about this movie....especially Paddy Chayefsky's screenplay and George C. Scott's performance. Honorable mention as well to Barnard Hughes and Diana Rigg

King Arthur is largely fictional, but is believed to be based on persons and events of the 5th and 6th centuries. However, the earliest English texts on Arthur and his legendary deeds date to the 12th century, so they were at least reading about him then! :)

I think it stands for Young Urban Professionals. Yes?

Another one I just remembered from the 80s is ST. ELMO'S FIRE.
