Re: Did You Love Other Vintage Sci-Fi Shows?

I love Twilight Zone and Outer Limits.
Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea was merely tech-porn for me in my youth. Now it's just boring.
I like the first half dozen episodes of Lost In Space and a few later ones (notably "The Antimatter Man" which is a model for what the show should have been like), but most of it is silly.
I adore the first season of Batman, which may not be SF, but is as much so as Voyage. It's a perfect play-it-so-straight-it's-funny twist on the late 50s Batman comics.
Time Tunnel and Land of the Giants are a bore.
I LOVE UFO. It's got some hokey bits, but overall it's got some nice dark drama about it.
I never got into series like Logan's Run, Fantastic Journey and their ilk.
I liked Space:1999 season 1 (but never saw season 2) and maybe it would appeal to me more as an adult, but what I have seen of it in recent years is kind of meh. It lacks that "snap" that UFO had.
I liked Battlestar when it came out, but even during its initial run I knew a lot of it was rubbish.
Buck Rogers was just rubbish and I didn't even make it through the 1st season. I tried the 2nd and it was just boring.
