    I watched all those, and even read the novelization of The Invisible Man. (I'm assuming you mean the 70's version with David McCallum, not the later Sci Fi Channel version with Vincent Ventresca.) And The Man From Atlantis comic books.

    Anybody else remember The Chronicle? How about Blood Ties on Lifetime?

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    I have all of those on "dvd".

    I only acquired Fantastic Journey a couple weeks ago and I laughed my ass of because I had thought that it was going to be a TV adaptation of Fantastic Voyage.

    Tron Uprising is outstanding.

    I remember Blood Ties (Even have it on DVD somewhere). I haven't got round to reading the books yet, but have read others by the same author:)

    Based on the ratings, I was the only person watching Journeyman...

    Was last night's the season/series finally? It felt like enough of a game changer to be.

    Heroes S2 - S4 all the way through. S1 was hugely popular, and so many tuned in for S2, but, they dropped like flies and very, very few of us stuck through until the bitter end (Though S4 actually had started getting better again, IMHO, was pretty watchable [maybe that was down to Robert Knepper, though])

    I watched all the 1970s shows in the opening post as a kid, though don't really remember Fantastic Journey

    I still haven't seen S4 of Heroes. Maybe I should get around to it one of these days.

    Yeah, that was the season finale. Whether or not it's the series finale, well...I guess we'll know soon enough.

    As far as the OP, shows I know only I've watched:
    Black Scorpion
    Starhunter (later known as Starhunter 2300)
    Team Knight Rider
    V.I.P (given how much of that show wasn't realistic, it had to be sci-fi).

    Given they were burning off the episodes at 12 midnight on sundays, I'm not holding my breath.

    No, but I saw Holmes and Yo-Yo!

    It's amazing how many times the networks went to the well and pulled the plug after one season (or less)...in addition to the ones we've mentioned:

    Logan's Run
    Planet of the Apes
    The Gemini Man
    Battlestar Galactica
    Galactica '80

    etc etc

    I remember watching in the late 70's some British TV movies that our ABC affiliate would show around midnight. I remember absolutely nothing about them other than they often had a horror/sci-fi bent, were British...and shot on video cause they had that soap-opera look. and they wern't Dr. Who.

    I'll give you some hints:

    Space show
    Jewel Staite
    Creators who were already known for their genre work
    Not Firefly ;)

    One of my favorite shows when I was younger. :techman:


    Yep. I thought it was an interesting premise for a show.

    I watched it. I rather liked it. It was cancelled too soon, though. They never got a chance to flesh out the folks behind his time jumps.

    I know I watched several episodes, though I can't recall if I stuck with it to the very end.

    Count me as one of those who stuck with it.

    Star Hunter started out rough, but, I really enjoyed it (From DVD, had never heard of it before picking up the sample DVD) and was bummed it was cancelled. The Sequel Series Star Hunter 2300 was OK, but, as I recall, mostly dropped some of the main arc parts I was interested in seeing developed further

    Oh God, Black Scorpion. Possibly my candidate for worst genre show ever. It was incompetent on practically every level and didn't even work on the level of brainless titillation.

    Relic Hunter, on the other hand, was great . . . .
