The way they rotated in guest stars, similar to The Twilight Zone, was spectacular. For those Trekkies here, did you ever watch the couple of episode of TTZ that Shatner starred in ? Well before Star Trek ? Gremlins (on the wing) was great !
    Or the TZ and OLs with Nimoy?

    I thought that was one of the best they ever did.

    Yes !! Just doing a little research, and not only were Shatner and Nimoy on The Outer Limits, but so were Doohan and a bunch of other Trek stars. Read here:

    The Outer Limits Connection -- Star Trek Myths Pt.2

    And, for us old timers, and you youngsters, you have to appreciate how friggin cutting-edge this was in 1963:

    Spock's ears .... all that came from The Outer Limits, btw. And the first episode, "Galaxy Being" with Cliff Robertson, is one of the most classic hours ever produced on TV.

    Star Trek was the most influential. Buffy the Vampire slayer was the best written and best acted with many layers.


    V had the best line ever (Michael Ironside just blew up a bunch of lizards and looks at a dead V and says

    Damn waste of Fine Luggage)

    4 and a half pages of comments, and no one says Doctor Who???

    I've got to say, it was close between Dr. Who and Firefly (Serenity was a great ending to the series!), but Dr. Who has a much more indepth universe than Firefly, with mystery, continual plot, action, some romance, and the unconquerable hero.

    I watched Dr Who a couple times and it was the most inane bunch of third rate acting I have ever seen. seriously

    That depends on which Doctor you saw. The previous one, David Tennant, was by far the best Doctor, but the current one Matt Smith isn't that bad either. I think the Doctors before these two are outdated, and a bit cheesy.

    So which one did you see? Keep in mind there've been 10 or 11 of them.

    Battlestar Galactica didn't win every vote? What's wrong with you people?
