Many beloved television shows are no longer with us, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Six Feet Under, and Mystery Science Theater 3000. What defunct television show do you miss the most?


Sadly, I miss this old fantasy series on ABC from 1980somthing. I think it was called Wizards and Warriors or some such, and about the only thing I really remember is a trapped treasure chest. But it was a flipping awesome show.

That and CBS's Otherworld, about a family that stepped into an alternate universe by taking a wrong turn in the Great Pyramid in Egypt.

I really don't watch much TV anymore, so I really don't get hooked into shows the way I used to.

Although I think I could add Firefly and Babylon 5 to this list. But those I saw on DVD.

I think I remember both...

I just remember them being the talk of my First grade classroom.

Of course, I remember watching CHiPs, but let's not go there. It, along with Knight Rider and the Dukes of Hazard belong where they are;)

On Otherworld wasn't there the 2 parents and then a boy and a girl? Every episode they were trying to find a way home, but it wasn't totally unpleasant there?

W&W was kind of like a really low-budget BEASTMASTER...


Yeah, I don't miss CHiPs, Knight Rider or Dukes Of Hazzard at all...

but I DO miss Misfits Of Science.....

Was it on cable? Mom didn't get cable until long after I moved out:)

JHmm, I'll have to google it. I may remember it just by looking at it:)

It was cheesy, but fun.. A bunch of teenagers who each had different mutant abilities..

Didn't Wizards & Warriors star a post-Taxi but pre-chemically-incapacitated-mess Jeff Conaway?

Uh, maybe? I'm going to have to IMDb it again to get you a real answer...

I quite remember the town ruled by women episode, because the teenage son became a "slave" at one point to be auctioned off. I remember laughing because he stated that he loved chicks, and the girls were asking why he liked chickens so much.

And I agree, the Doctor was cute. Although I'd pair him up with the preacher, personally.

I remember that episode!!! If I remember correctly, his mother or his sister had to buy him back, and the auctioning was fierce as a couple of the women there wanted him..
5th-Dec-2008 06:38 pm (UTC)
Yeah, something like that.

I really wish CBS would release it on DVD. I imagine it would be cheesy as hell now, but...

Maybe if enough people asked them for it on DVD... Worked for Northern Exposure .
