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

^You left out Planet Earth, the second pilot/revamp of Genesis II. And while Strange New World was a loose revamp of the same premise, it was done without Roddenberry's involvement.

I've seen GII/PE, but I've never seen Spectre.

^Right, Planet Earth, from '74! -knew there was something wrong

ETA:
Spectre is the one Roddenberry-thing I kinda sorry I watched -even if it does have Majel Barrett in it.

Everything Roddenberry produced for television after 1967 had Majel Barrett in it.

I think it was The Do Over. If not, it might have been That Was Then.

and more recently... "Odyssey 5".
I was going to bring this one up too, since I didn't see it earlier, but there it is. I'm surprised it took until page 12 for someone to mention it. Manny Coto's gig before Enterprise, starring Peter Weller! I would have really liked to see this one continue, along with the previously-mentioned Dark Skies and Journeyman (and of course... Firefly).

Hey, I actually vaguely remember that one, now that you bring it up. I was young when this one was on... I wonder how it would hold up now? A lot of shows I enjoyed as a kid don't really stand the test of time...

I watched Journeyman when it originally aired, and caught a handful of episodes of Odyssey 5 when Syfy was briefly airing. I really liked Journeyman, and I'm pretty sure I liked O5, but TBH I don't really have any specific memories of O5.

Since we're evidently allowing one-shot pilot episodes, did anybody else see Gerry Anderson's The Day After Tomorrow. As I recall, it was shown in my area of Kentucky during a week day afternoon, after school, confirmed by the wiki to be on NBC's Special Treat.

That was another one my mom and I watched together and really enjoyed. It was the first time I saw Dennis Haysbert and Eric Close, who went on to be on other shows I really enjoyed.

I watched it first run, it was pretty good. I recently got to rewatch the episode where the kids "invent" rock and roll in the current city-state they happen to be living in. It held up reasonably well. Looking back on it, it's very similar in style to first season Sliders.

^^ I remember that show. My main impressions were that the "Otherworld" was pretty mundane and the daughter was pretty cute.

I think you mean this. with the Willy Mays movie being but one...

That's it! I guess there was only one episode produced, which explains why I can't remember it well.

It now reminds me, though, that around that time there was a Space Opera version of Josie and the Pussycats called... Josie and the Pussycats In Outer Space. Anyone remember that one?
