So, last weeks poll is now closed, and as usual, you can see the Top 10 from that poll on Tuesday.
Now, this week we're moving away from the big screen and onto the TV. Specifically, we're looking at superhero's on TV. We're only doing Live Action this week (Vote Flash), cartoons is for another time (Vote Flash), but that doesn't mean we're skimping out of quality (Vote Flash). As usual, I've given you 10 options to start with (Vote Flash) and you can add options that I've missed out (Vote Flash). If you can specify when the series started (Vote Flash) and its end date (Vote Flash) when you add something to the poll (Vote Flash), that would be appreciated (Vote Flash). Other than that, I don't think there's anything else to say (Vote Flash), so I'll just leave it with you guys (Vote Flash)
The fact that your poll of live action super hero TV shows from the 60’s to today leaves out The Greatest American Hero (1981-83) is extremely disheartening. I’m disappointed in you JR.
@MLS- Add it yourself. I only put 10 to start with and I’ve never even heard of that one.
I had to vote for TGH too. I have to say it’s my favorite. Well, the first two years. The rest was kinda iffy.
If I’m not mistaken, William Katt was the son of Elizabeth Montgomery (Bewitched)
This is a tough one given that superhero shows were low-budget, campy fun up until recently. It is comparing bananas and Quinjets. I love the old shows. A local station airs The Incredible Hulk and Wonder Woman on Saturday nights. In the same time slots, another station airs Six Million Dollar Man and Bionic Woman!
Here’s the catch with the new generation. They are still in production. They haven’t run their course. They haven’t left us with a satisfying swan song or alienated us with a bonehead plot twist or a crap-in-a-hat character death.
I’ve got to say that some have DQ’ed themselves from MY vote, they are~ Batman too campy, L&C more romance than superhero (to me), Smallville to angsty and the ongoings as A. Punk said.
I would not mind seeing Manimal on the list, but I do not think that it will get many votes.
@The Atomic Punk- You know what the solution is? What you do is vote Flash. 😉
@keric: Manimal! That takes me back. Definitely fun to revisit as the show only lasted 8 episodes.
@JR: The Flash has yet to disappoint. Way beyond my expectations. The biggest thrill was the inclusion of the cast from the 1990 series!
Hand clap to the person who submitted The DC ANIMATED Universe to a poll for the best LIVE ACTION Superhero TV Show. Round of applause.
A couple of cult classics are M.A.N.T.I.S. and Black Scorpion.
Ach! These kids today! With their hair, and their clothes, and their never-having-heard-of great-television-and-music-from-the-80s!
I’d have to vote for TGAH over Manimal, but thanks for being right there with me, keric!
Actually, no: his mother was Barbara Hale, who played Della Street on “Perry Mason.”
And in general, I think that someone’s decision to add “Automan” was quite charming, as was adding the 1990 “Flash.”
