In terms of surpassing Trek TOS? No.
None of the series I listed surpass its influence, nor (I'd say) the quality of their characters. But in terms of the consistency of the series, from episode to episode? I'd say the only series in the lot I named as inconsistent as the original Star Trek
(mainly speaking about seasons 2 and 3 here) was The X-Files
. The rest have a better track record.
The Twilight Zone
is a great series, though, no doubt about it. Even the "bad" episodes attract my full attention in a way that most other series do not.
