The Six Million Dollar Man
100 episodes (1973-78) 60m


Badly-injured Steve Austin (Lee Majors) gets some 'bionic' body parts and sets about carrying out impossible missions for yet another clandestine government agency. Scientifically implausible feats of strength and some terrific action sequences sustained the show for several seasons. Based on a 1972 Michael Caidin novel, this show is one for the sci-fi completists.

Kolchak - The Night Stalker
20 episodes (1974-75) 60m


At best, a half-dozen of these episodes have enough genre content to be classified as sci-fi. A newspaper journalist with a nose for the extraordinary tracks all sorts of monsters, demons, aliens and other problematic creatures. Somehow he keeps working even though he always gets the villain, but never gets the scoop. A 10-episode remake appeared in 2005.

The Bionic Woman
57 episodes (1976-78) 60m


Steve Austin's (The Six Million Dollar Man) childhood girlfriend doesn't fare much better when she too has a serious accident and needs some bionic implants. Lindsay Wagner starred with the standard array of enhanced limbs and a bionic ear. A bionic dog and a the occasional alien spiced things up a bit, but for the most part we'd seen it all before.

Logan's Run
13 episodes (1977-78) 60m


Despite the fact the 1976 feature film seemed to have already said it all, television had another crack at this story of the inhabitants of a futuristic city who unwittingly face euthanasia while young adults. A man and a woman go in search of a better deal and tackle the outside world for thirteen episodes. Looking better with time and surprisingly endurable.

Max Headroom - The Series
14 episodes (1987-88) 60m


British phenomenon that started out as a rock video show featuring a computer-generated head, which we later find out is an electronic incarnation of a human investigative journalist. The 1987-88 US television series has the wise-cracking Max (Matt Frewer) getting some flesh and blood help to investigate a seedy collection of cyberpunk ills. 'Out there' series that needs to be seen.

War of the Worlds
43 episodes (1988-90) 50m


Clever 'sequel' to the 1953 film has alien invaders we all thought were dead resurrected by a terrorist attack on a nuclear waste dump. Irradiation forces them to constantly take over new human bodies while attempting to revive others of their kind. Season two saw cast changes, new aliens and a slightly different premise. Fans of the novel will enjoy this offering.
