TV & movies on my desert island

One of my Facebook friends had asked what three TV series we would want to take with us to our desert island. I chose Star Trek: Voyager, Flash, and, after binge-watching Glee, put it at #3. Someone else mentioned Leverage, and I just finished binge-watching it. I put it at #4.

I have been a huge science fiction fan all my life, having got started in first grade when I was reading fourth grade science fiction, to the consternation of the school librarian. Then, along came Star Trek. I was a Trekker for life. Then the Star Wars and Star Trek films. None of the films disappointed me, but a few episodes of Star TrekStar Trek: Next Generation, and Star Trek: Enterprise did. I was not disappointed by a single episode of Star Trek: Voyager, so with my intense interest in science fiction, that series claims #1.

Ever since Stan Lee died on November 22, 2018, I have been watching all of the films based on Marvel Comics and DC Comics. That’s how Flash got up there to #2. Not a single episode disappointed me. I found Star Trek: Voyager to be a little more realistic than Flash, so Flash claimed the #2 spot.

I started piano lessons under my mother when I was 2, started violin lessons when I was 6, and started voice lessons when I was 10. Thus, it should be no surprise how Glee got the #3 spot.

Leverage almost tied Glee for #3, but there were two episodes that I thought were lacking, so it fell to #4.

This morning I started watching The Protectors, a 1972-73 series starring Robert Vaughn. I was addicted to Vaughn in The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Not sure how I missed The Protectors.

I tried watching The Man from U.N.C.L.E. a few months ago but found the quality of the filming to be lacking. Same with The Protectors, which I will not finish watching. Not really surprising considering how much I love the special effects and such from the science fiction movies.

The Time Tunnel is another series that I watched in my youth but just doesn’t measure up now.

I don’t have any other TV series on my To Watch list, so I guess it’s on to movies for a few days, beginning with Omega Doom from 1997 about a post-holocaust world. Sounds like my kind of movie.
