    Star Trek: Remastered takes Gene Roddenberry's groundbreaking 1960s science fiction series and gives it a fresh coat of paint for a new generation. The Original Series gets a full make-over, presented now in high definition with new CGI effects and enhanced audio. This digital re-mastering was released in 2006 to commemorate Star Trek's 40th anniversary. Star Trek didn't always have the loyal following it does now. It's first season received lukewarm ratings, and while it developed a significant fan base, it received little network support and was canceled after three seasons. Nonetheless, the show continued to run in syndication in the 70s and gained popularity. Now, Stark Trek is one of the most-loved sci-fi stories of all time, with many spin-off series and several feature films. Star Trek holds the Guinness World Record for having the largest number of spin-offs among television shows in history. The Original Series has stood the test of time, and this updated version gives it a new, polished finish. Whether you're a long-time fan of this smart sci-fi classic, or a recent convert looking to catch up, Star Trek: Remastered is the best Original Series viewing experience available.moreless

    Planet of the Apes

    Planet of the Apes

    CBS (ended 1974)
    Astronauts Alan Virdon and Pete Burke are thrown 1100 years forward in time to 3085 AD to find evolved apes have become the dominant species and humans their apathetic slaves. Feared by the ape authorities, their plight turns the head of a promising young chimpanzee named Galen, who adopts the heretical idea that maybe humans aren't a lower species and can co-exist with apes as equals. As the three struggle to survive life on the run, a bond of friendship grows between them like an intricate tapestry woven right before our eyes, a multi-threaded miracle born of compassion, respect, and the desire to replace fear with understanding. The series is loosely tied to the original movie series, reusing some footage and the ape makeup (albeit on a lower budget). Although it only lasted 14 episodes and spawned four paperback adaptations and 5 stitched-together TV movies, it retains a strong fan following and the occasional resurgence of interest with the 2001 remake of the original movie and the occasional SciFi Channel marathon or late-night cable showing of the TV movies.moreless

    CBS (ended 1979)
    This live-action drama followed the exploits of Peter Parker, a freelance photographer for the Daily Bugle. Peter is bitten by a radioactive spider while on an assignment and gains the abilities of a spider. He can cling to walls and has the proportional strength and agility of a human-sized arachnid. Peter is also a part time college student at a local University where he is majoring in science. After receiving his new abilities, he constructs unique web-shooters which he wears on his wrists over the costume in this version, and later on only one wrist which allow him to swing from building to building and to catch crooks in a massive web. This version of the wall-crawler's exploits suffered from a low effects budget and long periods of hiatus between episodes. Still it holds pride of being the first live-action version of the comic book hero. Over the thirty-plus years since the TV series first debuted, this show has become a cult favorite.moreless

    Welcome to the Project Geeker guide at TV.com. Welcome to the FABULOUS WORLD OF TOMORROW!

    Welcome to overcrowding! Pollution! Crime! Five hundred home shopping channels! Yes, you heard right. It's worse than you ever imagined. FIVE HUNDRED HOME SHOPPING CHANNELS. The human mind cannot bear such untrammeled terror.

    In the future, there are two simple rules to remember:

    NO SPITTING.

    DON'T CROSS MISTER MOLOCH.

    Mister Moloch is the CEO of Moloch Industries, the giga-corporation which owns and operates most of the Earth (not to mention the moon, mars, and most of the more upscale parts of the asteroid belt). Moloch is one small step from world domination. And that's a step he's eager to take.

    In order to achieve his goal of total conquest, Moloch initiated Project GKR (Geno-Kinetic Research). Helmed by the brilliant but unstable Doctor Maston, the aim of Project GKR was to create the perfect corporate warrior; an artificial human with fantastic powers, whom Moloch could use to crush all who opposed him.

    Project GKR succeeded beyond Moloch's wildest dreams, resulting in a synthetic man - known as "Geeker" - with complete control over his own molecular structure. Geeker had power enough to destroy the world... or conquer it, for Moloch.

    But before Geeker could receive the programming which would enable him to control his powers and make him a slave to Moloch's will, he was stolen by a streetwise thief named Lady MacBeth, who was aided by an intelligent dinosaur named Noah. Lady MacBeth and Noah thought they were stealing a device they could sell on the black market. But when they opened the canister they had stolen, instead of some new high-tech weapon, they found Geeker.

    Without his final programming, Geeker was innocent and childlike; possessing fantastic powers but largely unable to control them. Noah and Lady MacBeth - whom Geeker promptly nicknamed "Becky" - realized they had something incredibly valuable on their hands. But they also realized that neither of them were hard-hearted enough to sell a human being.

    It was clear that Moloch meant to use Geeker to destroy anyone standing between him and world conquest - probably starting with Becky and Noah. Moloch would stop at nothing to get Geeker back. Becky and Noah had no choice but to keep Moloch from capturing Geeker at all costs.

    Now Geeker, Becky and Noah are on the run from Moloch. They ought to be doomed, really, just the three of them against the awesome forces of Moloch Industries. But soon, Moloch will learn the truth of that old saying:

    THE GEEK SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH.
