I love some of the old Science Fiction shows like "Twilight Zone" and "Lost in Space". What are some of your favorite classics?

Twlilight Zone with Rod Serling was awesome. You can spot some big stars in those old episodes, like William Shatner for example!

I saw a few episodes of the eighties "Twilight Zone" here on TV, it was kinda alright entertainment for me as a kid but I could not see me watching this today.
The intro however is just amazing work.

Something I liked much more as a kid (in reruns, I am not that old yet lol) was the british UFO series by Gerry Anderson (who also made Thunderbirds), pure cheese but a total blast for boys. Also I think this show heavily inspired the XCOM games.

I've seen a few episodes of the twilight zone, but more than anything I just use the music from it. >.>

Oh I also liked the original Battlestar Galactica, mostly for the models of the ships though as the stories more often than once were boring... And later on I kept noticing the religious subtones too much for my taste.

Yeah, I agree the ships from it were pretty awesome. I'm a sucker for cool looking space ships anyways.

I would have walked out of old Galactica on an airplane, sorry. I really tried so hard to like it, but I just couldn't.

Also, I watch the Twilight Zone marathon on New Years with my family every year. Love that series.

The trouble with Galactica is the whole narration style, the whole show is a bible metaphore.
