    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 favorite is "The Toys of Caliban".  It has been over 20 years and I still remember that episode vividly.  The title simply should have been called "Bring"!

    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).

    There were many good episodes in this series, and it's hard to nail down a single favorite.  I have three:

    Wong's Lost and Found Emporium

    Extra Innings

    The Hellgramite Method

    My personal favourites were Shadowman, and I of Newton. I saw them when i was about 12 or 13, and remembered them all through my teenage years, and my twenties. Where have shows like this gone?

    Toys of Caliban *Bring. Original, touching, sweet, perfectly acted, that kid Toby was great, my favorite thing ever with that Soap / Empty Nest Actor, It was king of like It's a Good Life with a kid who didn't have any understanding or control of his power, truly frightening to imagine. Kind of like Iran with Nuclear Weapons. Maybe we should send them that meddling social worker. So many were great but my favorite original series episode is now Willoughby tho when I was young it was Time Enough at Last. And my favorite Forest Whitaker Zone was the 1st episode where troubled teens got turned into fertilizer. It had a fresh edgy feel that unfornutalely wasn't fully realized in future episodes which I feel led to the reseries early demise.

    Far and away, "A Message from Charity." One of the moust charming, touching, emotional, original shows I have ever seen.

    Not to distant second, "To see the Invisible Man"

    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......

    Difficult one. The shock ending of A Little Peace and Quiet really got an emotional response out of me, but I also loved the lighthearted and wonderfully weird Word Play.

    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.
