(On a tangent). I think you make a very good point here. This is the primary reason why I have fond memories and nostalgia for the original Battlestar Galactica. It was the first non-cartoon show I latched onto when I was a kid/preteen. In contrast if I had never seen Battlstar Galactica back then in its first-run, most likely I wouldn't think much of it. Without the rose tinted glasses of nostalgia, it's basically another cheesy space opera. In the case of the original Outer Limits, I only ever saw a few random episodes when I was a kid/teenager. In those days I sometimes mistaken Outer Limits episodes as Twilight Zone episodes, from not knowing any better. It was only many years later when I realized Outer Limits and Twilight Zone were actually two different shows. So I never really had much nostalgia for either show. They were just two black and white shows/movies out of the hundreds which I saw on reruns during weekend afternoons or late at night when I was a kid. Frankly I have more precise memories of the 1990s revived Outer Limits, than I do of the original. This was from watching reruns on a "scifi fridays" block on a basic cable channel. Another show which they had on the fridays block was Total Recall 2070, which I also had precise memories until I picked up the complete series dvd set and came to the realization it was a rather mediocre detective show in the future.
