A second for Babylon 5. Personally, my favourite piece of Sci-Fi ever and such a waste by Warner Brothers.
I also miss Farscape. I hear that it may be resurrected though. Great news!!!
Obviously, I still miss Firefly.
The Ace of Wands
I've just started a thread on 'The Tomorrow People', but 'The Ace of Wands' was yet another Thames Television childrens series from the early seventies that, in common with a number of contemporary programmes, was an adventure series with a fantasy element.
I first discovered it while on holiday. My family were caravaning, and the junior members of the family who owned the caravan site invited me in to watch their favourite TV programme. When I got back home I found it incredibly hard to catch it again, and for some reason it was rarely repeated, and never shown again after 1974.
This site has all the details: http://www.aceofwands.freeserve.co.uk/ace.htm. I actually can't remember much about it, except that I liked it and was frustrated that I could never get to see it again. In comparison, 'The Tomorrow People' has often been reshown, and was on the Sci-Fi Channel late every night for about a year.
When I saw 'The Tomorrow People' again it was quite awful, so no doubt 'The Ace of Wands' would be equally as bad, but I've never had the opportunity to see it.
The first Season of Sliders was great. Unfortunately, it doesn't get better as it continues. They develop a long story arc (which was a good idea if it could have been better developed) and suffers from cast changes. It got cancelled then was picked up again but only for one season so it doesn't properly end. However, I'd say I miss it too. It might be worth re-watching.
