Sadly, I have seen most of the shows that have been mentioned.

Think I was the only person to have seen The Amazing Spiderman with Nicholas Hammond.

Two other shows that I remember seeing...Star Maidens (with Gareth Thomas before Blake's Seven) and a very odd Australian (?) show called Phoenix 5.
I think I was the only person to see the Dr.Strange movie...and like it.

Brimstone. Great show. Probably the one-season show I wished most wasn't cancelled.

The Adventures of Sinbad. Seems like no one remembers it. Really liked the cast. Maeve > Bryn, though having seen Bryn's IMDB pics, she's gotten better with age.

Cleopatra 2525. Jennifer Sky was eye-catching in that outfit, but the series wasn't worth losing Amarice in Xena as the new sidekick. With her on the show as originally intended, maybe they wouldn't have needed so many comedies to cover for the action-limited Xena: Pregnant Princess, which would have averted several of the worst episodes in the series.

The Jack of All Trades.

The Outer Limits (II). On Showtime. Even to 2000. And then on Sci-Fi Channel. How many subscribed back to Showtime then to see Stargate SG-1, The Outer Limits, and The Legacy?
Harsh Realm.

Dark Skies. Forgotten original companion series to The Pretender & Profiler on NBC Saturday nights. X-Files-esque conspiracy series intended to last 5 years set in a different decade each season from the 1960s- 2000s.

Sleepwalkers. Yes, I actually saw the only 2 episodes it aired nationally before being yanked.
i watched all those. i thought Brimstone and Dark Skies were pretty good back in the day. i don't think i've seen them in years though.

Speaking of which, PBS's "Pioneers of Television" show is doing an episode on "Superheroes" tonight, looking back at "Batman," "Wonder Woman," "The Incredible Hulk," etc.

Same Bat-time, same Bat-channel.
And it's apparently a new episode, which is odd, since Robert Culp and Stephen J. Cannell both passed away in 2010. So they must've done those interviews quite a while ago.

It was an okay special, but it had a few errors. Mainly it perpetuated the myth that Batman comics were normally serious and the TV show took a different approach by lightening up. In fact, the comics were only dark and serious for the first year or two, becoming lighter and more kid-friendly as soon as Robin was introduced in 1940, and through most of the '50s and '60s they had become quite goofy, colorful, and fanciful. The TV show was actually quite a faithful translation of the way the comics were done at the time.

Also, they showed a picture of Julie Newmar's Catwoman to represent Lee Meriwether.

I watched it. Starred a pre-Voyager Jeri Ryan.

Deadly Games. Man fights bosses from a video game he created, all of whom were based on people he hated.
Ha, yeah I remember that show. The premise was so ridiculous, but I kept watching anyway.

The main villain was Christopher Lloyd.
The Jackal. Turned out he was based on the guy's dad.

Kings. A great allegory in an alternate universe. And it had Ian McShane. Too bad no one watched it.
I enjoyed it too. You don't see many shows in that specific genre.

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.
I remember seeing this, don't recall the name. If I remember correctly, the main body of the suit was a one piece orange rigid armor and the arms and legs looked pretty much like ducting used for clothes dryers. I want to say it has the word Omega in the title, but I can't be sure.
Yes that is it! Anyone able to name it?

Re: Sci-Fi TV Shows that you're pretty sure only you watched.

In the United States (UK folks will recognize some of these):

Supercar ("Opening roof doors.")
Fireball XL5 ("OK Venus?" "OK Steve." "Right, let's go.")
Stingray (loved the battlestations drums)

Thriller (Boris Karloff, mostly horror)

Way Out (Roald Dahl, tried to capitalize on Thriller)

Men Into Space (around 1959, when I was 8 and just getting into scifi. "With William Lundigan as Col. Edward MacCauley")

The Starlost (so bad, Harlan Ellison took his name off it)

^^ I have both Thriller and Starlost on DVD. Thriller is fantastic, The Starlost is about at the level of Plan 9, but both are entertaining.

^ I should have mentioned I saw all but Supercar and Stingray in first run. And not sure Starlost counts, as all 3 were syndicated in U.S.

Found it! It was called Exo-Man:

http://www.superheroeslives.com/orig...man_(1977).htm


Here's an obscure one: Once a Hero. It was Ira Steven Behr's first SF series, and it ran for all of three weeks back in 1987. Its premise was that fictional characters really existed in some sort of alternate reality, and it focused on a superhero, Captain Justice, who crossed over into our world and found that reality was a lot more complicated and morally ambiguous than his comic-book reality. Robert Forster played a fictional Sam Spade type who also crossed over and was sort of his mentor/gadfly. It sounds like a comedy premise, but it was actually a pretty thoughtful and intelligent drama -- which is probably why it failed, because audiences expected one thing and got something very different.

The tragedy is, the fourth episode would've guest-starred Adam West as an actor who'd played Captain Justice on TV and was suing the real CJ for stealing his act. It was previewed at the end of episode 3, but then the show was yanked and the episode was never shown. I dearly wish somebody would unearth it and put it on YouTube or something.

I loved John Doe. The producers were promised enough time to wrap up the show if it were facing cancellation, but they never got a heads up and it was cancelled anyway. Fortunately you can find some answers to the show's questions if you look around.
