    This is a thread for when you need help identifying TV shows.

    For example:

    A CITV show from the early or mid 90s I think which was a kids' spy/adventure series. I think they were all on holiday, or at least it was a very sunny setting. Every episode they would solve a mystery of SOME SORT.

    It's been bothering me for a while. Anyone?

    Thanks babes, but no. It wasn't one of the big ones. Probably didn't last longer than a series or two. I think they were in some kind of Caribbean setting...

    Was it called Runaway Bay? I remember something set in the Caribbean with that name, everyone wearing shit pastel t-shirts and a couple of them sporting really shoddy American accents.

    The theme tune was used recently I think in a Sainsbury's advert. Shows that our generation is finally in control of these sorts of decisions :star:

    Yes our generations nostalgia is in FULL SWING.

    I do find 90s nostalgia so depressing.

    Such knowledge is the price I pay for favouring television over friends and experiences during my youth.

    All-American Girl? :D

    Only one season every was made, and I have it on DVD, it was shit but had its funny moments. But the world wasn’t ready for a sitcom like that in the mid 90s. Of course we have Fresh off The Boat now.

    Yeah I remember that, didn't Carly Simon do the theme tune - The Promise - or something?
