CBS (ended 1989)
|I know this is probably gay but I liked the one where this little girl took her parents to a zoo and ended up leaving with new parents...LOL|
My review of the series has several, but a handful truly stand out in my mind (no, not "Shatterday" - good acting but long and ponderous):
"Nightcrawlers" - not a way to end a peaceful day by any stretch of the imagination
"The Curious Case of Edgar Witherspoon" - a cute gem in the middle of the morass of the syndicated episodes. I DARE you not to smile!
"A Message From Charity" - an unexpected love story
"Shadow Play" - a rare remake that can stand alongside the original version
The three stories that I enjoyed the most were:
Shadow Man (eerie)
Paladin of the Lost Hour (sad)
Dealer's Choice (funny).
There were lots more that I really liked but these three stuck out as being the best (in my opinion, only).
I love To see the invisible man and Childerns Zoo (this one stood out in my memory from 80s) I do hope to see Childerns Zoo again TV has been cutting them half to death for ads.
It is sad to see todays TV cutting tv shows to fit their time frame and killing the show......

That's a hard decision - to pick a favourite episode - as I enjoyed the series.
The best I can do is to pick a favourite episode from each season.
Season One - Wordplay: I have felt like this before (when I met someone from a different country), and I couldn't understand what they were trying to say to me. Although in this episode, it was his own wife and friends that he could no longer understand.
Season Two - The Once And Future King: This one was (in my opinion)one of the weirdest episodes. An Elvis impersonator goes back in time, accidentally kills Elvis himself and takes over his life.
Season Three - The Curious Case Of Edgar Witherspoon: An old man (who everyone starts to believe is going crazy) must gather old junk to keep the world in check.
Of course there are a handful of other episodes that I would like to mention, but that will do for now.
