    NBC (ended 1986)
    Semi-superhero TV show that revolved around a group of young people with superpowers who are members of an American think tank and fight crime. Members included head scientist and fast talker Dr. Billy Hayes, who worked at the Humanidyne Institute and had no powers but led his team of patients and colleagues, including: Fellow scientist 7'4" Dr. Elvin "El" Lincoln, who hates basketball and sought a way to become normal height and developed a way to shrink to 7" for 14 minutes once/hour by injecting himself with a growth serum and tapping a nerve center in his neck; John "Johnny B" Bukowski, a rock musician who gained freak electrical powers when he was caught in an accident with a set of amplifiers. He uncontrollably absorbed electricity and could fire it as lightning bolts or channel it into super-speed, but water caused him to short circuit, burning him with potentially fatal results and forcing him to retire as a musician; Gloria "Glo" Dinallo, A 17 year old street delinquent, whose father was supposedly an alien, who could move anything she could see with her mind via telekinesis and was romantically interested in Johnny. Arnold Biefneiter, aka The Iceman, a cyrogenically frozen worker from 1937 who was brought back to life and had the power to radiate extreme cold as well as an obsession with Amelia Earhart and a love of frozen candy bars (Iceman was dropped after the premiere movie). The Misfits were aided (and sometimes hindered) by Billy's long-suffering supervisor Stetmeyer, Gloria's truancy officer (and Billy's love interest) Jane Miller, and obnoxious Humanidyne secretary Miss Nance.

    Star Trek: The Animated Series

    NBC (ended 1974)
    This is the further adventures of the Star Trek series in a half-hour animated form. This show basically continues the adventures of the original series (presumably in the fourth year of the five-year mission), but takes advantage of the unlimited special effects provided by animation to introduce more alien crewmen (the felinoid M'Ress and the tripedal Arex) as well as introduce more elaborate adventures like an underwater adventure, the miniaturization of the crew to 1 cm., and the appearance of a giant fire-breathing two-headed dragon. The show is currently not considered "canon" by Paramount and the folks associated with the various subsequent TV shows. However, elements of the animated series have been used in subsequent shows (Sarek refers to the events of "Yesteryear" in TNG's "Reunification Pt. 1") and the Enterprise-D's holodeck seems to have been in part inspired by the holodeck we see in "Practical Joker". Also, writers such as Peter David have used some elements from the animated series in the books and comics. Although produced on the cheap (note the incredibly static backgrounds, recycled animations, and the fact that James Doohan, Nichelle Nichols, and Majel Barrett do about 95% of the guest voices), the script writing and concepts (mostly by writers from the original series) are generally of high quality (the show won an Emmy for best Children's Programming in '73) and the show is in many worthy of inclusion in the Trek annals.moreless

    Day One is an NBC television series about a group of apartment dwellers that survive an unknown worldly disaster that takes out all of society's infrastructure. It is left up to the small band of survivors to rebuild society and unravel the mysteries of why the event occurred and what the future has in store for all mankind. The story is told from the point of view of each of the apartment dwellers from Van Nuys, CA and is supposed to convey that hope can be found in even the bleakest of situations and that everyone can be a hero if they have the courage to try. The series while was originally slated for thirteen episodes in 2009 was short-listed and dropped down to only four episodes. Then in January of 2010 is was released that the series would no longer be a series and that the pilot episode, directed by Alex Graves (Fringe, Journeyman), would be the only episode to air and in a made for television movie format. It is still unclear why the series met the fate that it did.moreless

    V: The Final Battle (1984) is the miniseries sequel to the NBC miniseries V: The Original Miniseries, where we are introduced to an alien race called "The Visitors", led by John And Diana (Jane Badler), who come to Earth with a secret evil plan. We join news cameraman Mike Donovan as he is becoming part of the resistance movement which is bent on exposing and defeating the Visitors. The resistance attempts a raid on a Visitor processing plant, where they are using humans for food, but find that their defenses are too advanced. When John is making a huge announcement at the Los Angeles Medical Center, claiming to have a medial breakthrough that will be a universal cure for cancer, the rebels infiltrate the hospital to take advantage of the media coverage. The resistance makes a desperate call for rebellion, but Diana has the scene re-enacted and passed off as the original broadcast. When Mike is invited to surrender in exchange for his son, he is taken into custody on the mothership. When a strange pregnancy reveals a deadly bacteria, they develop the "Red Dust" to try to stop the Visitors, but soon find that the stakes of doing so are much higher than expected.moreless

    NBC (ended 1997)
    Dark Skies is set in the 1960s and includes a government employee, John Loengard, and his fiance Kimberly Sayers. John's quest for the truth leads him to Majestic-12, a secret government operation (above all offices and law) dealing with extra-terrestrials. At first the show seems to be just another show about Government spies and greyliens, but look closer and you will see much deeper. The plot thickens. The Greys, it seems, are only hosts for the real aliens, called the Hive. The Hive are much more dangerous than was previously imaginable with the Greys. This horrible truth is to be kept from the American people by Captain Bach, the leader of super-secret government organization called Majestic-12. The two main characters are on the run from the alien Hive and from the Government, and their travels lead them all over the country as they learn more and learn to fear more. Many historical figures are woven into the Dark Skies story, an important part of the turbulent ambience in which the characters exist. Many bear witness to the conspiracy involving "Majestic 12."moreless

    The 1963 black-and-white version of Astro Boy was the first anime to cross the Pacific and penetrate American television. It was highly successful as it drew the highest ratings at that time. It was taken off the air in 1966 as it completed its 104-episode run (193 episodes in Japan), having lost its popularity due to it not being in color and having "depressing" and violent themes and story lines.
    However, in 1980, Astro Boy was reborn in Japan and was brought back to North America in 1982 with a 51-episode color series (52 episodes in Japan).
    All 104 episodes of the original 1963 series which aired in the United States are now available on DVD.moreless

    NBC (ended 1975)
    Astronauts Bill Hudson, Jeff Carter and Judy Franklin, orbiting in the NASA spacecraft Venture, are caught in a time warp in 1976. They crash land roughly two millennia later on a planet where intelligent apes are the dominant species and humans are helpless primitives which the apes refer to as "humanoids." Only later do they realize that it's Earth of the far future. In Ape City, the head of the Simian Senate is orangutan Dr. Zaius, who knows the truth about humans and apes. General Urko, in charge of the gorilla army, wants to wipe out the humanoid menace. He is also power-hungry and plots to seize control of the government by proving the military is superior. Chimpanzee scientists Zira and Cornelius are sympathetic to the endangered species since they subscribe to the theory that apes evolved from humanoids. They are the only apes who know about Bill's ability to speak and keep all of the astronauts' secrets. Zira has named Bill, "Blue Eyes" because he is the only blond human she has ever seen. Supporting characters include Nova, a female humanoid the astronauts have befriended, and Colonel Ron Brent, an astronaut from the 22nd century who also entered a time warp and arrived 15-20 years before the main characters. The series was based on "La Planéte des Singes" (The Monkey Planet) by Pierre Boulle and lasted only one season. Unlike its theatrical predecessors, the Planet of the Apes series of films, Return to the Planet of the Apes placed the apes in a society with architecture and technology approximating mid-20th century United States and realizes Boulle's original style and setting. DePatie-Freleng Enterprises produced the show, although the animation is often confused with the similar Filmation style. However, the detailed background drawings combined with often simplistic animation is more reminiscent of Hanna-Barbera's Jonny Quest.moreless
