I post this after picking up the fifth and final season of Babylon 5 on DVD yesterday. I have to admit I'm normally not one to watch TV, let alone buy DVDs of Tv shows, by B5 was by and far the show that I *had* to watch each week. It also had a bit of a incongruous showing in Oz, and because of that, I only ended up seeing half the episodes when I actually got the DVDs.

Just wondering what other series people would spend their hard earned on to own for good.

ps. before anyone asks, B5 was the only sci-fi I really watched, Star trek just drive me insane with it's seemingly endless, go nowhere plotlines, and Deep Space Nine just seemed like a B5 rip off. And even though the Yanks seem to love it, Farscape floated like a lead balloon here, which is amusing as it was filmed here ;)

I'll go with my favorite old show = Combat!

Favorite 80's show = Magnum P.I. I went to Hawaii on vacation and it was great when I would find a plaque saying Magnum PI episode # was shot here.

Favorite semi-recent shows = Millenium

I just got the new Millenium and Magnum P.I. series on DVD they are great. I mainly watch sports and movies now.

My fav has got to be Magnum PI followed by Band of Brothers, Mission Impossible, and what the Hell..Knight Rider

Finally completed collecting all of the X-Files, man FOX took way too long in releasing that series! :rolleyes:

Finally Paramount got off their butts and release the original Star Trek in one box set! I was a bit shocked by the price though :surprise:

thanks doughboy i will.cross of iron is one of my favorite movies.have you ever read the book? it'll blow you away.
Yes, long time ago..there were a lot of differences in a big way. Too bad Peckinpah couldn't finish the film properly. Heard he was under enormous stress to get the film out aka butchered state.:eek:

I would definitely agree that Combat! was a good series. I too thought B5 was a great series. It is one of the few series that has a strong arc tying it together. The B5 moves are also out on DVD. Roughnecks, The Starship Trooper Chronicles is also very well done.

Magnum P.I. was a favourite when I was in High School. I still have a replica of his ring I bought through a mail order catalogue. (sitting in my desk at home,I believe.)
