Anyone think of any slightly obscure cult TV classics they'd love to watch again?

I've just acquired a DVD of a series called Maelstrom from the mid 80's which I remember scaring me to bits. I hope it doesn't disappoint too much on reviewing. http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/classic/maelstrom/

I also loved The Adventure Game on BBC2. http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/classic/adventuregame/

That would be me.

"The Adventures of Brisco County Jr." only ran for one season on Fox here in the U.S., oh, about 15 years ago. It was sort of a comedy-western and it was quite good. Lots of sarcastic humor that probably a lot of people didn't get. And it had good-looking guys in the lead roles which certainly kept my attention.

Haha, my sister LOVED that show.

Hmm...obsecure cult classics. Not sure if this would count, but I see Man from U.N.C.L.E is now available on DVD. I would love to see that show again. Loved it as a kid, wonder how camp it would seem now (or would I still think it was great?).

Callan - I used to love it in the late 60s and early 70s I think. Edward Woodward played the main part.

Why does he have four d's in his name?

Re Edward Woodward: there's a quote, attributed to either John Gielgud or Laurence Olivier, that "that's not a name, that's a fart in a bathtub".

Callan, must be years since i even thought about that one.

And what about Get Smart? And his Cone Of Silence.

The only way is forward. Now where's the bar?

Ginj: Tell your sister she has good taste.

Maxx: Get Smart was my absolute favorite for quite a while. The new movie is quite good and sticks to the spirit of the series. Although I could have done without the view of Steve Carol's butt.

Joan: I liked Edward Woodward in a show he did that had something to do with helping people get even. I think it was on in the early 80s.

Oh, yeah! I really did like him in that. So suave and sophisticated. And he didn't even need a gun. An odd thing for a hero on an American TV show. He was a bit like Andy Griffith, but without the corn pone. And no offense to Griffith fans - I'm one myself and have the DVDs to prove it.

Ewar Woowar? Sounds like a porn star.

I'm a cult TV freak so here's a few I want to see again but don't have:

Moonlighting
Street Hawk
Automan
Manimal
The Kids In The Hall
Gone To The Dogs/Gone To Seed

and speaking of Edward Woodward, yes I remember Callan (repeats) and also enjoyed the Equalizer, but what about Common As Muck?

Oooh, some great suggestions. Common as Muck was brilliant. I loved Get Smart too. Has anyone mentioned Monkey yet?

That would be me.
