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

...So how would you as a TOS fan rate these and other vintage shows?
It's somewhat disconcerting that shows from the 70s that I first saw in my mid-to-late 20s are now considered vintage.

Before Star Trek existed, I got into visual sci-fi with (in chronological order) "Men into Space", "The Twilight Zone", "Fireball XL5", "The Outer Limits", "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea", and "Lost in Space". The Irwin Allen shows only interested me for their hardware and effects (and Marta Kristen). Outer Limits aired when I was 12, the creature makeup masks (some by John Chambers and Wah Chang) spoiled me, and I considered Trek's aliens less than impressive.

XL5 was one of Gerry Anderson's early SuperMarionation shows, and still influences me today. The special effects were by Derek Meddings, who moved on to James Bond films and Superman.

It's too bad Ray Harryhausen never did a sci-fi tv series.
