I loved all these shows when I was growing up!  :D

I only realized, at this moment, how much he sounded like Captain Kirk with the dramatic pauses. :w00t:

Adam West was amazing in that series, no question about it.  I wonder if he was part of Shatner's inspiration too.  LOL

Sorry, I did say 'Project Blue Book'. That was the reality show.

I meant to refer to 'Project UFO' (1978-79).

And yes, I was old enough at the time to witness first hand the original "documentary" Chariots of the Gods (and read the book). Times have changed, no?

Here's another one of my personal favourites and I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned yet, The Incredible Hulk and another excellent Kenneth Johnson TV adaptation.



Oh yes, so many wonderful but classic faves from the past. ;)  Nearly all the shows you guys have posted, I thoroughly enjoyed as well.  Great TV back in the old days!

And, who could possibly forget this sexy super hero clad in satin tights, fighting Nazis and gargantuan gorillas with legs to die for and a sweet, pure, almost child-like innocence.  Only the 1960's batman and the 1970's Wonder Woman epitomized 'camp' so well. ;)

My favorite show when I was little was The Greatest American Hero.  It was campy, and funny,  and I can still remember and sing the theme song.  It was just a very fun show!

The show with the campiest episode ever...   Lost In Space - The episode called "Vegetable Rebellion"...

(The only clips i could find of this episode... One of the best worst episodes ever made)...






Thank heavens Star Trek came out later.... Otherwise THIS would have been THE sci-fi series....  :o

The Monkees was a stand alone for its time. It could easily be looked at as silly and campy, but as an adult I think of it more, at that time, as being free-spirited, modern, forward, hip, an early music video show... unlike any other show and it knew it and that was what it wanted to be... bucking the standard formulaic offerings

I recently saw a re-run of one the original Battlestar Galactica episodes, some parts are funnier than I remember.

Other shows that would be funny to see again are Logan's Run and Land Of The Giants

I'm not sure whether this subject has been posted before or not and since I'm a new member to UM.

A few of the members welcomed me with open arms and mentioned they liked my avatar and nickname.  Well, if any of those members wants a trip down memory lane and if you were born circa 1978, you probably watched and remember the 6 Million Dollar Man.

This science fiction program and its spin off - the Bionic Woman, were what got me initially intrigued by unexplained mysteries.   I was aware that bigfoot/sasquatch was an actual creature of myth, legend and folklore in pop culture at that time too and read as many books on the subject as I could.  Considering it was the 70's, Kenneth Johnson actually created a fairly good representation of Sasquatch AND of course with the late, great Andre the giant playing the part originally. The costume was pretty decent for the time period and combined with those white eyes and the bionic sounds, that TV beast was quite intimidating to younger viewers. ;)

This was Steve Austin's first encounter with the bionic Sasquatch:

Andre the Giant also battled the Greatest American Hero too in an episode "Heaven Is In Your Genes" but couldnt locate on youtube.

What about Kung Fu's Cain battles a demon:



"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

You jerk you beat me to it! :) I can never forget that show, much to my dismay.

I've just put on Season 2 of Lost in Space for our little lad!
See if I can turn him towards classic Sci-Fi!
