Can we compile a comprehensive list of late-70s/early-80s TV shows that had a punk rock episode?

I know of at least two classics:

Quincy
CHiPs

Any others?

Among the TV shows and films of this era that portrayed "punk," one of the glaring mistakes is that the punks were violent. When I was in school, the "punks," were the misunderstood misfits, and were more likely to get beat up by jocks than to start any fights themselves.

Great topic, Onya. A lot of the regulars here spent a lot of time watching TV during this period. There is even a member who painstakingly details the scores of each episode of particular TV shows. I'm sure some of the regulars will chime in with other examples of punk- and new wave-themed TV episodes from this period. If I can think of any, I will happily add them.

Yeah, my recollection was they were part of gang culture. At least that's how it was portrayed in movies.

Completely boneheaded, turning punks into Sharks and Jets.

Any other episodes worth mentioning?
