What were your favorite Campy TV scifi or fantasy shows?

Recommended Posts

There were so many to choose from in the history of TV, I thought we needed to start a thread with our guilty pleasure shows. So some of mine were:

The Invaders

UFO

Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea

Space 1999

Thunderbirds

Warehouse 13! It is fantasy in a sci-fi camo suit pretty much.

Classic Doctor Who

Blake's 7

 

Being a fan of both of those, I'm not allowed to disparage anything else for being campy.

For a while there the sci-fi channel was showing some really... questionable tv shows in the after school hours. Friday the 13th the tv series, Kolchak: The Night Stalker, Forever Knight, Kindred: The Embraced... and another one that's escaping me at the moment. Loved them all!

Original Battlestar Galactica

Buck Rogers (Gil Gerrad!!) (after school viewing!!!)

V tv series

Battle Beyond the Stars (not a tv series but campy sf nonetheless!!!)

Friday the 13th tv series

Doctor Who Classic (watched my first episodes (Baker I think) on a small black & white tv I had on Oregon Public Broadcasting, when had access to Portland stations due to cable company contract)

I never thought of Kolchak as being all that campy. And every time I watch an episode of Buck Rogers, I am amazed at some of the actors they got on that show...

Absolutely! And Julie Newmar is still the hottest Catwoman ever!
