Thanks to an onging commentary under a post from adagiogray, I am now knee-deep in childhood TV shows. Since I think most of you who read this are a bit younger than I am, this may be a bit before yer time. The original post had to do with Space:1999 and Land of the Lost, but my comment brought up the old standards of Otherworld and Wizards and Warriors. Oh boy, feel that arthritis. W&W was the thing to watch in my first grade class. Well that and Knight Rider, Dukes of Hazzard, and The Martian Chronicles. Otherworld was just cool in general. And the real irony is I have very specific memories of each of those shows. Like the ep of Otherworld involving men being enslaved, The ep of Dukes where Bo gets amnesia, and this one ep of W&W with a very sexy (by '80s standards) knight and a poisoned box. Now, I've found Manimal again thanks to Sci-Fi Network, but that leaves one other show I can't recall the name of. I remember it involved a holographic(?) character, and his little sidekick cursor that bleeped like R2-D2. The main reason I remember that one involved a night where the main character ended up stripping at a night club. (No I wasn't a gay kid at all!) If anyone remembers the name of that one, let me know. I'm thinking of writing Sci-fi and begging them to ressurect the classics of my childhood. Can you imagine a marathon of bad early 80's Sci-fi/faantasy television? All of us jaded adults would melt:)

It would be Buck Rogers or Battlestar Galactica
