Why make a TV show about the Amish who do not have televisions?

The Starlost did remind me a little of the Tripods.

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?
Horrible show. There was no difference between that and the original--other than Hanna-Barbera typically recycling their sci-fi aliens/ships seen in 50,000 other H-B nightmares.

Key moments: characters' mouths moving away from faces, and their ship flying like someone was moving a cardboard cutout of it by hand.

While Jose and the Pussycats had the usual poor animation of it's time, I do remember the episodes being as good as original season Scooby Doo. If that's saying anything.

^Yes but I suspect Traci Lords is rather more famous for another aspect of her career.

The show starred Sally Field and John Davidson. So, sorry, the contemporary joke that the show was really The Boy with Nothing Extra was much, much funnier.

Talk about going way back! I remember watching The Girl with Something Extra when it was first run on NBC. Sally Field was "the girl" who used ESP as the platform for rather lukewarm comedy. By the time TGWSE aired, "magical" fantasy sitcoms had been wiped away from TV, or if they appeared at all, the magic was reduced to something less fantastic (threatening?), such as ESP (much like that used by Juliet Mills' character from Nanny and the Professor).

Has anybody mentioned It's About Time yet? I'd love to have that on DVD.

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

I vaguely remember "Tucker's Witch". It had Catherine Hicks in it. I remember it being pretty good but it has been so long I've forgotten the details.

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

Hmm. The Starlost. I took a look at it in first run, and couldn't sit through the first episode, it was so depressing.

Project UFO. I remember it well. Produced by Jack Webb's "Mark VII Limited." Had a rather amusing open: it faded up from black to a drawing of a wheel-shaped spacecraft, as a couple bars of the old spiritual, "Ezekiel Saw the Wheel" is intoned on ominous-sounding low brass. Jack Webb's narration: "Ezekiel saw the wheel. This is the wheel he said he saw. These are unidentified flying objects people have said they've seen. . . ." and continuing in that vein, explaining that the show was about Project Blue Book.
