As a kid I used to wait up every sunday for Star Trek!

And so many more. Sadly modern TV just sucks, so I gave up 4 years ago.

Does anyone remember Fireball XL5? My all time favourite as a boy. I am looking for the episodes. I have the title track, if there are any old fans of Fireball XL5

I wish I was a spaceman,
the fastest guy alive
I'd fly you round the universe.
In my fireball xl5.

Way out in space together.
Conquerors of the sky.
My heart would be a fireball.
A fireball.

Every time I gaze into your starry eyes.


If there are any more Fireball fans, please email me I will send you the above theme song. I can never forget Zoonie and his "follow me..."

Good thread, Rahul. And Friends is your fav serial ? Figures.

I still maintain that current American "comedy" serials are more bufoonery than true wit. This is where I miss the old British comedies. My fav in no particular order:

1. 'Allo 'Allo
2. Mind your Language
3. Yes Minister/PM
4. Fawlty Towers
5. Goodness Gracious Me

The only current comedies I liked: Scrubs and Sienfeld. And I'm a die-hard Star Trek: The Next Generation fan.

Even Jay Leno has become too predictable in the interests of commercialism - pity

Absolutely Loved PINKS. Those drag challenges were excellent. Something I really miss after leaving Canada.

All time favorites has to be " the Three stooges." Just love the three of em.

Others favorites are Seinfield, Everybody Loves Raymond, Friends, Crystal Maze(childhood favouraite) and streethawk.

Other shows I watched as a Kid were I dream of genie, Dennis the Menace and Small wonder.

Black Adder : Hillarious Sarcastic British Humour with some awesome performances by Rowan Atkinson. Anyone who's seen the series will know the funny Bouldrick Rated one of the greatest British televison series ever.

Family Guy : Animated Series making fun of almost anything and everything and full of spoofs, Very funny.

Lost : The first season was kickass, in between it slowed down but the last few episodes of the 3rd season were good.

Prison Break : Very well made and addictive, the last few eps of the 1st season were too good.

Heroes : To some it might look like a big hotch potch, but it's very creative and well directed, did not like how the 1t season ended however.

Sleeper Cell : On US counter terrorism, a Sleeper Agent's story from the FBI who joins an Extremist Al Qaeda group intending to spell disaster in the US.
