George McFly's favorite show!
I'm down to Saturday Morning fare to try and think of obscure shows:
Run Joe Run should be science fiction since it was basicaly The Fugitive, with a dog as David Janssen.
I totally watched Ark II.
How about Earth 2?
I remember Earth 2 being on, but never saw it. I missed a lot of shows between '82 and '90 because I was usually doing nightly computer maintenance from 2pm to 10pm or whenever all the backups were finished. That's why I bought my first VCR.
Oh, I see it was '94-'95. I had hit hard times again, moved a lot, and finally got another job with hours from 3pm to 9pm.
Word to the Wise: An A.A. in Humanities doesn't do shit.
^I think I watched it in German at some point...
Too bad Filmation did not produce another season; it was finding its way near the end of its limited run.
Oh, yeah, now I'm remembering Serling doing the introductions. Very interesting.
Here Comes The Grump
Archie's Sunday Funnies
And a rotating movie type of show that included a cartoon version of Lost In Space
This thread makes me think of these two pieces of art.
70s Sci-Fi characters
70s Saturday Morning Sci-Fi characters
Not sure what that could be. There was one pilot made for an LiS cartoon, but only one.
Oops, Greatest American Hero is not a 70's show.
The artist has admitted he knew that, but couldn't resist including Ralph.
A show that made a big impression on me when I was a kid was Otherworld which ran for eight episodes during the winter/early spring of 1985. It was about a family that got transported through the Great Pyramid into what seemed to be a parallel universe. They end up as fugitives on the run on a strange and dangerous world which is divided up into dozens of different zones - each with different forms of government and ways of life.
I blind bought it a year or two ago and ended up being quite impressed with it, but I also wondered how the hell it passed under my radar since I usually jump on anything sci-fi when it comes to anime.
Almost forgot to mention Métal Hurlant Chronicles.
I think you mean this. with the Willy Mays movie being but one...
I might have to keep an eye out and see if it ever comes to the US. The cast is enough to get me to at least give it a try.
A short trailer to give an impression of the first episode:
Remember that it's an anthology series, made up of separate stories that are only tied together by the appearance of that last fragment of a world that was destroyed long ago (sometimes as mere decoration, sometimes as a plot device).
Well, I was going to say "The Questor Tapes" but Christopher mentioned it already.
Then I was going to say. Space 1999... but alas...
So now I guess I'll mention "Manimal". (Is that considered scifi or just fantasy?)
and more recently... "Odyssey 5".
While we're at it:
Genesis II (1973)
Strange New World (1975)
But I'm pretty sure not only I have watched those... as a matter of fact I've made sure not only I watched those
