Tough topic and difficult to choose, but some of my favorites are as follows:

 

It Takes A Thief

Mission Impossible

Bewitched

My Three Sons

The Addams Family

Star Trek (the real one)

I Dream of Jeannie

That Girl

Hazel

Alfred Hitchcock Presents

The Twilight Zone

Xena Warrior Princess

Quantum Leap

Have Gun Will Travel

There are so many honorable mentions, in fact, too many to mention.

Good topic, James!

😊

Yeah, My Three Sons (the Ernie years) needs to be on my list (saw it on your list, Susie). And Kirk, as a very little kid, I remember watching my first scary show ever, and it was the Outer Limits. I bought a bunch of the series in my recent buying splurge, but still haven't watched the CDs yet.

Some others I haven't mentioned:

Beverly Hillbillies - I didn't like it as a kid but as an adult I adore it's humor.

Gomer Pyle - Americana 

You Bet Your Life - Like it as a time capsule, and love watching the (to me)  funny chemistry between Groucho and George Fennerman. Fennerman was a hoot.

Touched by an Angel - another one that could have been in my top five. 

Ally McBeal - a hoot.

High Chapperal - next to Gunsmoke, my favorite Western.

Happy Days 

Good Times - I made a point to watch it as a kid, at least its early years.

Kirk, I'm not familiar with the movie, surprisingly...but just looked it up and it appears to be a good movie. I will for sure get a copy, hopefully soon, and I'd also like to get the book it was based on.

The Wild, Wild West.  Robert Conrad was the definition of cool. And Ross Martin was the perfect partner. The movie with Will Smith and Kenneth Branagh from 1999 was a complete and utter insult to the original TV series.

Got the complete TV series of "The Wild, Wild West" (1965 - 1969) on DVD box set which includes the CBS Made For TV Movies from 1977 & 1980!!  Bad 1999 movie remake with Will Smith & Salma Hayek though.  

I also got the complete series box set with the TV movies. A great show that was taken off the air while still doing great in the ratings. Political pressure caused CBS to cave.
