Dr. Who Being a child of the 80's, I grew up watching doctors #4 through #7.
This show was perfect. Recently I watched some of the old episodes on DVD and laughted at how corney some of the special effects were, but as
a 12, 13, 14 year old watching this, I thought it was fantastic.
Les Miserables Yes, a musical. Reminds me of the first time I visited NYC. Passing by a theater near broadway I saw the logo but had no idea what it was. Later I saw the show on PBS and was blown away.
Red Dwarf What a stupid show. So stupid that it's hilarious. Take the last human in the universe, who also happens to be a complete moron, add a creature descended from cats, a hologram who hates him and a senile A.I. computer and stick them out in space all alone. Yeah, I know, that dosen't sound like the recipe for comedic gold but it was!
Star Trek Ahhhh, Sneaking up late at night to catch the episodes of Star Trek on the cable station out of Dallas. Those were the days. Way before the next generation and way past my bedtime.
X-Men I actually got into comic books later than most, like high school/college age. Part of my claim on the X-Men is that I jumped on thier band wagon just before they really got famous in the 90s.
