The Good

People who added this item 1150 Average listal rating (877 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 8.3
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.

People who added this item 198 Average listal rating (110 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.5
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.
TrekMedic's rating:

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.

The Munsters (1964)
Serviceable 60s sit-com in the same "assimilation" vein as The Addams Family and My Favorite Martian. Shown here for comparison to Mockingbird Lane.
People who added this item 51 Average listal rating (38 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 6.9
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.
People who added this item 256 Average listal rating (140 ratings) 8.1 IMDB Rating 8.4
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.

Again,..Hollywood has no fresh ideas most of the time,...
People who added this item 226 Average listal rating (163 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.5
Dopey, escapist fantasy that, along with The Love Boat, was the last gasp for Hollywood's Golden Era character actors.
People who added this item 32 Average listal rating (22 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 0
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.
TrekMedic's rating:
People who added this item 66 Average listal rating (45 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8.5
A great series that never found enough audience to stick around. Just enough camp to balance out the horror.

See the 2009 Prisoner and 2002 Twilight Zone,...'Nuff said.

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.
TrekMedic's rating:
People who added this item 384 Average listal rating (282 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.5
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.
