Default 80's TV Show Trivia Challenge

OK, here's something that might be fun to do...Pick an 80's show (game show, prime time, cartoon show, whatever you like) and give a brief description, include just enough to help people guess (actors, plot, genre, etc.)...
Please, no cheating by looking up stuff...

I'll start...Whoever gets it right gets to post the next question

#1 - Sci-fi show with Courtney Cox and Dean Paul Martin about young people with mutant special powers...One guy could shrink very small, one person could harness electricity, and one had telekinetic abilities...

?????

This is one of The Rod's more liked shows:

An ex judge teams with his last defendant, bringing justice to cases previously dismissed through technicalities.

The Rod feels He may have given to many clues here....
