The Good

People who added this item 1082 Average listal rating (799 ratings) 7.3 IMDB Rating 8.4
Star Trek (1966)
A ground-breaker for sci-fi television and a pop-culture icon. Decades ahead of its time (voice interactive computers? computer information on little square pieces of plastic? flip-up two-way communications?) Also broke down racial barriers and addressed many of society's issues of the day.

It stumbled a bit out of the gate, but eventually found its footing and established its own identity!

Ground-breaking! The first black Star Trek commanding officer! A Trek franchise based on an alien station that didn't travel the cosmos. Then came the Dominion War and all the sugar-coated ideas of the previous Treks melted away and it got really nasty!

Yes,..70's cheesy. TV's attempt to capture the Star Wars crowd. It went nowhere after a few years.

Wow! Dark, ugly and unrelentingly bleak. It jumped on post-9/11 angst, grabbed you by the scruff of your neck and dragged you to those dark places sci-fi TV didn't talk about.

Being Human (2008)
Pretty good premise and a nice twist on a couple horror genres. The characters are truly conflicted and deal with real-life issues, not always in their favor.

Being Human (2011)
Made-in-Canada version for North American audiences. Lacks the punch of the Brit original, but it doesn't stink enough to go into the "bad" column yet.

THE quintessential mystery anthology. Rod Serling set a bar few shows have met in the last 50 years and that says a lot. Many of today's established actors were up-and-comers when they did guest spots on the show.

Serviceable, syndicated update of the original. I put this in the "good" column because it had more hits than misses. As with many Canadian-based sci-fi series, it was mellowed, cleaned up to the point of being sterile and a bit too staid for its own good.

Back when MTV actually played music videos, B&BH was a cutting-edge series. Their mocking of videos echoed the tropes of MST3K and made several videos and their artists famous!

Hustle (2004)
I have a thing for British TV and this bit of froth cons the viewers as much as the "marks" with the sleight-of-hand. The banter was as crisp as a good hard cider.

Leverage (2008)
Not exactly a remake of Hustle, but the premise of conning money out of bad guys is nearly the same. It ran out of steam towards the end,...pity TNT chose to cancel it without a satisfying conclusion.

Jekyll (2007)
This was a pretty edgy show that, unfortunately, was cancelled at a cliffhanger without any final resolution.

Ironside (1967)
One of the great detective shows from the late 60s through early 70s (along with Police Story and Police Women) from NBC, even when you get past the "disabled" plot device.

The Americans (2013)
A taut, twisting thriller, set in the waning days of the Cold War. Keri Russell is terrific as the conflicted (cold-heart spy vs. Western-leaning mother) distaff half of an arranged married spy family.

The Bad

Another classic 70s mindless fun show. Like fish and fresh fruit, it started to go bad after awhile and stunk at the end.

It sounded like a good idea to address some of the mythos behind Mr. Roarke and Fantasy Island in general, but it never caught on with an audience.

The first Star Trek series other than The Original that was produced under the aegis of a network and it showed. It had a serviceable run, but never hit the excitement levels of the previous variations.

How do you go back to the origins of the Star Trek franchise and not remember its history? Another network-backed disaster clearly without much input from anyone familiar with Star Trek. Once the multiple errors were exposed by fans, the writers tried to cover it up with the old canard of multiple time lines. The show only got interesting once it was slated for cancellation and the writers had nothing to lose.

The Prisoner (1967)
A great show. Patrick McGoohan took his "Secret Agent Man" character and placed him is a classic late-60s psychedelic trip. Poked fun at a lot of British mores and late-60s Western society in general.

Good to know I "missed" some of the bad/ugly ones. I thought the newest Star Trek film was decent, but I was never a big fan of the franchise.

I love the original Star Trek series. I think DS9 was also a great show with a dynamic cast... Non-Star Trek related, The Prisoner (the original) is also one of my all time favorite shows.

Enterprise could have been much better if Beavis & Butthead hadn't run it into the ground with season 3. Season 4 definitely showed more promise. I guess they figured "hot babe in catsuit" would sustain it.

I was totally with you on Star Trek 11...I was so pissed after I saw it. However, it has seriously grown on me and I like the possibilities they have opened up for future movies in the franchise. And the Romulans aren't out of it...that was future Romulus which was destroyed, and, of course, that future has been altered.

How dare you. The original Battlestar Galactica was nowhere near cheesy. The 1970s brought better entertainment, both in Hollywood & in music, than we see today.
