Dirk Gently - All three episodes as well as the pilot.

L5 - Still waiting for the second episode.

Pioneer One - "A Cold War relic returns amid fears of terrorism but turns out to be a forgotten Soviet space mission. What it brings back will have implications for the entire world."

The Strangerers - Hilarious Rob Grant-series:
Cadet 1: To counter fatigue we place our left hand on the females breast and invite her to submit to the mating ritual
Cadet 2: No
Cadet 1: All right, all right, I forgot the flowers and the box of chocolate! - First you purchase...
Cadet 2: No - You're confusing the remedy of erotic arousal! - To dispel fatigue we'll do the sleep-thing.
Zenith - "A retro-futuristic steam-punk thriller, about two men in two time periods, whose search for the same grand conspiracy leads them to question their own humanity. "

Voyagers! - I watched that with my younger sister (who was a bit too old to be in the target audience).
L5 and Dirk Gently!! Yes, saw these but they were for a niche audience really.

As I understand, L5 was supposed to show the way of the future; if you want SciFi-'TV' that isn't made like SyFy makes it, and Dirk Gently was cancelled so the BBC would have more money for imported series.

But I must admit that most of the shows in that post of mine are released on BitTorrent rather than on the old-fashioned TV.

Speaking of the forbidden fruit: unless you have, like I did, a British friend that had a VCR, you are probably not going to be able to find The Strangerers as it was never released on DVD. ETA & BTW: I'm pretty sure "The Observers" in Fringe are based on the aliens in The Strangerers; loads of their mannerisms are so alike that it can't be a coincidence.

That article has an update at the bottom:
comicbookmovie wrote:
UPDATED: Producer Edward Kitsis has offered a small glimmer of hope for the show. He says the show isn't cancelled yet, offering the following. "“I don’t know what the future [of Tron: Uprising] is now. I know at the present, I can say we need more viewers....The problem is, not enough people are watching it...At this point, I don’t believe its fate has been decided. So if people keep watching, then there’s still a chance. Please watch. Tell your friends!”

So it appears that if ratings don't improve, the show will indeed be cancelled but an official decision has yet to be made. If you want the show to continue then you better tell all your friends to start watching. Of course airing episodes at midnight on Sunday doesn't exactly help viewership.

Ahh this is my kind of thread. You can pop over to my site to remind you of what you are forgetting. The thing I hear most from people is how someone was reminded of a forgotten favorite.

7 Days - Same story. -Except, I still wait for someone to come forward and admit they watched it.
I'll admit it. I think they only aired the first series on a channel where I could watch it but still have all those on recorded VHS until they get around to releasing it on dvd.

If we're talking about SF pilots we remember, I still have a tape of a pilot called Project: Tin Man with Catherine Mary Stewart.
I like it already! :-)
The problem, though -- and I suppose I'll put this in a spoiler box in case anyone manages to track down the pilot online or something -- is that


Also, IMDb says the pilot was actually called Project: Tin Men, plural. I don't think that's right -- I have it written on the VHS tape as Project: Tinman -- but I don't feel like going to the trouble of checking it out right now. Maybe later I'll get around to rewatching it and report back.

I saw that on YouTube and didn't care for it. On the other hand, there was also a failed Time Tunnel remake pilot around the same time which was really quite good.

Meanwhile, I actually thought RELIC HUNTER was more fun than the "official" TOMB RAIDER movies. The show had a nice sense of humor, never took itself too seriously, and was utterly shameless when it came to finding "plausible" excuses for Tia Carrere to take her clothes off.

"Oh my! The lost temple is buried under a nudist colony!"

That's sheer genius, I tell you . . . .
Hmm, I'm starting to regret not having watched that show. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be on Netflix.
I tried watching the Relic Hunter pilot last fall, but wasn't able to finish it due to a sudden, despairing urge to burn my high school diploma. Luckily, a cessation of viewing and a hot shower prevented such an incident...

How about Probe? Co-created by Isaac Asimov, it starred Parker Stevenson as a genius who investigated science-related crimes.

What was the pilot (I think it was a pilot) about a scientist who is disabled and he builds an Iron man like suit.. except its the 1970s and the show has no budget so his suit has buttons on the front labelled "walk" and the like*


* or so I remember been a long time.

Did anyone see 'Mercy Point?' It starred Joe Morton (Of T2 fame) and was some sort of ER meets Star Trek mixup. I only ever saw one episode way back when, but it appeared to be of fairly high production values.
