I get a lot of e-mails from people asking me about television shows, made-for-TV movies or miniseries they remember from years or decades past. I try to answer each question as best I can but often recollections are hazy at best and thus impossible to identify, despite my best efforts. Hopefully, by posting these questions here at Television Obscurities for everyone to read someone will come up with the answer. Keep reading for today’s unidentified shows.
This new feature has turned out to be both more popular and more productive than I had hoped. Many of the questions that stumped me have been answered by visitors.

Here are two more questions that I hope someone can answer. I sure couldn’t.
Miki and Mickey? Do you have any information on this show? It was about a Russian athlete and an American athlete who were married and still competing. 1980ish? Thanks.
This one is a real stumper. I don’t know if the name of the show actually is Miki and Mickey (if so, I can’t find any reference to it) or whether it was a television show, a made-for-TV movie or perhaps a feature film. If anyone recognizes the description, please chime in.
Could have been on cable or tv. premise was 2 hip young Two guys are a private detective team. Their ‘office’ was a coffee shop or the main place of action. (Low budget!) one of the stars looked a lot like either a very young Bill Mahr or Craig Wasson of Body Double fame. The other guy was dark haired. They were amusing but that’s all I remember! I think it was in the 80’s maybe early 90s. Good luck and thanks!
I’m not very knowledgeable about cable shows from the late 1980s or early 1990s, unfortunately, but perhaps someone who is will know the name of this show off the top of their head.
