    For those that may not want to skim through 50 pages I've typed up the list for you...... ;)

    I'm just surprised that fare like The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy or The Prisoner aren't on the list! :confused:

    Star Trek DS9, the best of the Star Trek collection, isn't even on the list!!! the character development in the show, the less than perfect alternative to the robots the star trek academy churns out, drew in the viewer by making them think they could be those heroes under the right situations. the Dominian Wars provided some of the most fluid storylines ever seen too, with characters becoming much loved on both sides of the war.

    Besides DS9, which of all of the Trek incarnations was the most plot driven, The Night Stalker, the show that Chris Carter has openly acknowledged as being the inspiration for The X-Files, did not make the list either. The Night Stalker was absolutely one of the finest show's of the 70's and is in the midst of being brought back for the 2005-2006 TV season.

    It was good to see often missed shows make the list, like one of my childhood favorites The Wild Wild West, but at the same including stuff like Andromeda and Earth - Final Conflict over other shows seems to be a mistake.
