The Good

People who added this item 1186 Average listal rating (902 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.
TrekMedic's rating:
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.
People who added this item 1641 Average listal rating (1105 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 8.7
Wow! Dark, ugly and unrelentingly bleak. Building on the 2003 mini-series, 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 heretofore 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.
TrekMedic's rating:
People who added this item 206 Average listal rating (114 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:
People who added this item 1021 Average listal rating (714 ratings) 8.2 IMDB Rating 9.1
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.
TrekMedic's rating:
People who added this item 397 Average listal rating (257 ratings) 7.5 IMDB Rating 7.8
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.
TrekMedic's rating:
People who added this item 249 Average listal rating (160 ratings) 7.9 IMDB Rating 7.9
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 53 Average listal rating (41 ratings) 7 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 272 Average listal rating (150 ratings) 8 IMDB Rating 8.4
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.
TrekMedic's rating:
People who added this item 3819 Average listal rating (2585 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.7
Fast, loud and typically satisfying for the summer blockbuster crowd. A nice blend of humor, drama and eye candy in the form of Jessica Alba. A serviceable part of the MCU community.

People who added this item 7 Average listal rating (4 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 6.2
An updated version of the original series, with the conceit that the Roarke family at-large (the current island manager is the niece of the original "Mr. Roarke") is linked to the island. The addition of the island itself as a supernatural entity (Recurrent character, Isla - Spanish for "island" - was an updated version of the original series' Naya ) was an added reveal. However, the Ruby/Isla relationship was added, IMN-SHO, to satisfy the DEI crowd.

The Bad

People who added this item 379 Average listal rating (285 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 7.1
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 234 Average listal rating (170 ratings) 6.1 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 33 Average listal rating (23 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 0
It sounded like a good idea to address some of the mythos behind Mr. Roarke and Fantasy Island in general, but even with Malcolm McDowell's enigmatically creepy Roarke and Mรคdchen Amick's mysterious Ariel (a subtle take on Michelle Phillip's character Naya?) it never caught on with an audience.
