Guys. In the past we've discussed Holy Grails, but this time, I'd like to ask about Holy Grails that are pretty low in the popularity and recognizable arena. Years ago, I voted for Young Maverick on www.tvshowsondvd.com, and the vote count was pretty low about only the thirty or fourty or so. I think it ranked about 1000 or something. Other low voted shows were Spy Games from 1997, and Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future ranked on the bottom.

Another one was NBC's and Hanna Barbara's Space Stars from the early 80's. Again . . . only about twenty to thirty votes.

What shows have you voted for . . . that no one else has heard of or few have voted for?

James

James, it would appear that you and I have a bit in common.    I was definately one of those that voted, not only for YOUNG MAVERICK but BRET MAVERICK as well.  Hell, we can't even get MAVERICK out!!!   Yet still I wait on all three....

Besides that:

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE - the revival series from the 80s.

SANFORD  and  GRADY - Sanford and Son spinoffs

GET A LIFE - Chris Elliot's FOX sitcom from the early days of the Fox network

704 HAUSER STREET - another family living in Archie Bunker's house

HUMAN TARGET - series starring Rick Springfield that aired on ABC

Norman Lear's THE POWERS THAT BE, with John Forsythe and David Hyde Pierce. It didn't
last long, but to paraphrase Spencer Tracy "What there was, was cherce!"

"A Peaceable Kingdom"  / Lindsay Wagner (1989)  There were 12 episodes produced but I think the show got pulled after only 6 eps aired.

Jack Webb's Sierra series from the 1970's. Featured several forest rangers in a national park and had similar qualities as acclaimed series like Emergency! and Adam-12. 

Sadly, The Waltons was already established in the same timeslot on a rival network, also featuring a rural mountain setting. So the series didn't get many viewers and died quickly, although it's no reflection on it's quality.

Daktari is another that has been largely forgotten about that I'd love to see, though it lasted for several seasons at least, so it must've recieved decent ratings. But it's barely remembered now.

Bless you January Man, someone else remembers Domestic Life. A long forgotten short lived Martin Mull comedy. Loved it. Nobody else did.

Thanks.

Didn't Steve Martin produce that? I also remember it, though not well.

Aside from the three unreleased seasons of VIP, I'd love to see UPN's Live Shot and CTV's E.N.G. (both followed the lives of a group of newscasters), One West Waikiki (with Cheryl Ladd, Richard Burgi and Paul Gleason) and the short-lived comedy Good Sports, starring Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal (as sportscasters).

DOMESTIC LIFE!!   Totally forgot about that.   I clearly remember a scene where they are at dinner.  Food served was something like turkey, mashed potatoes , dinner roles, some other white hued food and Martin's character making a crack about dinner looking like a salute to Casper the Ghost!!    Count me among those that loved this short show.

Add these as well.  The names escape me but Bonnie Hunt had two sitcoms (both airing on CBS, I believe) that were great fun.  Both ended quickly.  I would pick these up in a heart beat.

Also the first season of her ABC sitcom, Life With Bonnie was very strong, featuring one of my all time favorite Christmas episodes of a sitcom, her kids doing a Christmas play on her local talk show.   FUNNY!!

A pair of great-review, low-rating series:

Slattery's People (Richard Crenna as a state legislator)
The Great Adventure (a well-done American history series)

And one the critics didn't like either, though I did:

The New Perry Mason (Monte Markham as a slimmed-down Perry)

One that I'd really like to get is Cliffhangers which aired in 1979 and featured 3 different stories.  The one that I loved the most was "The Curse Of Dracula" with Michael Nouri.  I would love to get this series out on DVD just for that one alone.

I would also buy a complete series of <strong class='bbc'><em class='bbc'>Cliffhangers</em></strong> in a heartbeat!  Since some of the other shows written and produced by Kenneth Johnson have been released (original <em class='bbc'>V</em>, <em class='bbc'>Incredible Hulk</em>), this definitely deserves a release.  <br />
<br />
The serial aspect of the series had more than a little in common with the tone of the original Star Wars, as well as Raiders of the Lost Ark released a couple years after this series ran its course.  I think a lot of people who enjoyed the original Star Wars trilogy and Indiana Jones would also enjoy seeing a DVD release.  I know that I would.<br />
