Loc: It's all about the location.
I've always enjoyed the original Twilight Zone episodes, clever writing, paradigm shifts, acting ect. I recently watched a few episodes of a show that actually came out several months before Twilight Zone called One Step Beyond. It ran for three years in the late 50's/early 60's and was based on true but unexplained events. It's really a very well written show with great acting, similar in style to The Twilight Zone....just wondering if anyone's seen it or perhaps some of you 'older guys' remember it and what you thought of it...

I'm waiting for Babylon 5 to come back for re-runs. Of all the many scifi shows that haven't hit Space channel yet, i thought that one for sure would be running by now.

Eh, just get the DVDs. Hell, I'd be willing to loan them to you, but shipping is probably slightly exorbitant.

I never finished Season 5 or the movie set, but I do own all of them.

I don't recall "One Step Beyond" but I did enjoy Twighlight Zone reruns. I like Babylon 5 as well.

Space 1999 was a big one when I was a kid. Althought for some reason I had reoccuring nightmares about being trapped in the tube transport thingies. Speaking of which, it's now 13 years since 1999 and still no moonbase. Disapointing. I remember doing the math as a kid and I should have been a veteran Eagle pilot by now.

I loved "The Twilight Zone"! I also used to watch Rod Serling's, "The Night Gallery". But, it was more horror based than sci-fi. My brother used to enjoy the series, "Quantum Leap".

Yep! "The Twilight Zone" and "The Outer Limits" were my favorites.

I own the completely Twilight Zone series on BD. If you've not seen these remasters, and like the show, you really owe it to yourself.

I've just started on a revisit of the complete Stargate canon. Starting with the film, on to SG-1, then Atlantis, the the SG-1 movies, and finishing with Universe (I hope they release the second season on BD by the time I get there).

I really enjoyed SGU, but it had "short-lived" written all over it.

Agreed. My favorite of the SG series was SG1. I loved the well done mix of blending of ancient mythology with advanced alien culture. The visits to both under and overdeveloped worlds was reminiscent of the original Star Trek. The running story lines had the benefit of added variety any time they needed it by exploring a new world with the Stargates. A big advantage to the writers who put it to good use.

I watched SG Atlantis as well but it just didn't draw me in as much. SG Universe was going down some sark and mysterious paths that had my attention for sure but like you, I never expected to see an ending.
