Ahh, your list is so similar to mine!

You know, if you like DT (which I know you do, of course!) and Buffy, you should really give Firefly a try. *pimp pimp pimp* It's by Joss Whedon, and it is the greatest tv show ever.

Is Firefly still on TV somewhere? Cable? I watched it on network, but then it was gone and I don't get cable.

Unfortunately no. Fox, assholes that they are, cancelled it before it could even become a complete season.

You can buy the dvd set of all 14 episodes at somewhere like Best Buy or Media Play for about $30, and it is well, well worth it.

Yeah, it was very promising, but evidently it took too long for it to establish its footing with some fans. A lot of Buffy fans were very disappointed because they weren't getting more Buffy. It definitely was cancelled before it had a fair chance.

Yeah, apparently the story and characters developed too slowly, so instead of showing the appropriate first episode, they showed a hurriedly-written third episode as the premier. I have no idea how that worked in their minds. It really disgusts me that an intelligent show like Firefly gets canceled, and yet a show like The Bachelor keeps going season after season.

And there will be a movie out in theaters next April. :)

I will watch it, as soon as I can. I have a friend who has all the episodes on tape.

Okay, you KNOW I'm gonna word you on B5. But here's something unexpected.

Since we're of an age, I bet you watched this as avidly as I did: Kung Fu.

I did watch, for a time. *g* Not obsessively, but I liked it a lot.

I loved "The Children Who Stayed Alone", but had forgotten about it for years! Your...meme, I guess is inspiring me to post a similar one in my own journal. Stay tuned. Maybe for awhile...:-)
