I don't remember Star Lost but the raise one I do. How about this one

A friend of mine showed me this one on DVD...it has a scene in the openning sequence, not shown in the link, that Lucas used for the Hyper reactive core in Star Wars that Obi won shuts down

I loved Time Tunnel growing up. I remember taking an old cardboard box and putting it on a hill in our backyard and playing Time Tunnel by rolling through the box. In fact, I was just JUST looking at the DVD set on Amazon last night. Weird coincidence.

I also watched Electra-Woman and Dyna-Girl all the time too. Cornball to the extreme.

Starlost I don't remember at all, but I have to admit, that's an awesome set-up for a show. I'd be great to see it brought back, given this day of re-imagining.

Electra Woman and Dyna Girl have the coolest theme song EVAR!

Here's my contribution to obscure TV shows.

I actually remember the first episode of that show. The bad guys are all androids and they carry laser guns which the hold upside-down to shoot.
Whenever I get confused about D&D alignment morality, I just imagine Abraham Lincoln and Mahatma Ghandi arm wrestling shirtless on the back of a killer whale.

In other words, I remember that it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense and deal with it best I can.

I downloaded the entire 1st (and only) season of Starlost after seeing this thread, and I have to agree.

I think someone like J. Michael Straczynski would be a good choice to do a remake.

Hell, given how Hollywood is recycling old shows, Starlost may just get remade.
