These shows tickle my brain and are very hard to remember. They are often in my brain for a second before I forget them and struggle to remember them off and on for months or years or, in several cases, decades. Many are just bad, or embarrassing, but there are a few gems.
1968 - 1969 (1 season 30 episodes) tv show where government agents crash land in the Himalayas and are granted super powers by an advanced civilization.
Originally, all I could remember was several people who were given superpowers by a monk in a mountain. I spent a lot of effort trying to remember and find this one. The episode I can think of in particular is called The Interrogation.
1981 First horror spoof.
A very underrated movie. I recently watched portions of this on youtube and found it hilarious.
Night Gallery: Pamelas voice, Lone survivor, the doll
This is very much subjective, but this episode of the night gallery with the doll was the scariest doll story I can remember and it scared me every time I watched it. It took a long time to find this episode, because I had been looking for it in the Twilight Zone series.
Christmas Every Day
1987 animated christmas special. You can see it on Youtube
It is the story of a girl who wishes that every day of the year was Christmas and the amusing consequences that follow.
Another bad short lived environmentally based sci-fi tv series.
Tomes & Talismans
Children's show from the 80's. Apocalyptic show where kids hide out in an old library and learn how to use the dewidecimal system. Silly premise that was oddly enjoyable.
A 1996 made for tv Marvel movie. Surprisingly not listed as a Marvel movie. youtube
Guns of Paradise
A western drama I remember fondly. Around 1990 there were a good number of quality western tv shows.
Billy Zane. I liked this one as it is the story of a pseudo-demon who repents and turns to the light. Poorly executed, but interesting concept.
Jewish piano player
tv show that introduces and comments on sci-fi, horror, fantasy movies.
A man seeks revenge in a Sin City style of storytelling.
A man whose knowledge of science and archeology borders on the supernatural battles evildoers.
An entertainment device allows people to record dreams and experiences. What are the ethical rammifications of this new technology?
A successful cocaine dealer gets two tough assignments from his boss on the eve of his planned early retirement.
Chance Harper has unbelievable luck. Spin off of X-Files.
A zombie story where the infection occurs more slowly.
Comedy where a dentist is mistaken for an arms dealer.
Man executed for murder comes back to life more dangerous.
Man from 1890 invents a time machine and travels to the future.
It is the apocalypse and society is reborn from children.
A group of teen band members are teleported to a musical cartoon world.
Movie about a killer with a glove that allows him to hit really hard.
Crime drama about infiltrating and taking down a mob boss.
Science fiction in the distant future about a doctor.
The Questor Tapes
As I recall, this is the story of an android that was created as something of a superhuman and meant to guide and assist mankind. The android is awoken too early and is somewhat flawed. It is a morally good character.
The Sword and the Sorcerer
A classic fantasy movie. What has stayed with me is the scene where the man rips all of his skin off to reveal the monster within.
Earth Star Voyager
An ark is created to another planet due to the pollution on earth and is populated with mostly kids. The ship has a self-aware A.I.
Twilight Zone (2002): Time Lapse
A man keeps awakening to discover that a period of time is passing in which he does things, but he has no memories of what he has done. He finds that he is awake less and less often and for shorter periods of time.
Galaxy of Terror
One of the most challenging of this list to recall. I kept thinking this was titled The Spiders of Mars. Nope!
