My favorites would be:

1. Space:1999. I particularly like year one, as I prefer the overall tone and look of the show. However I do enjoy year two as well, despite the somewhat juvenile nature of many of the stories and the overall slump in production values.

2. U.F.O. Although the look of the show is a bit dated and certain elements are now almost camp ( purple wigs, anyone? ). I thought that most of the stories were intelligent and held up well to close scrutiny.

Although I did not see many of the puppet series until more recently, I do have an interest in them and find several of them enjoyable However I am not what you would call an afficianado.

1] UFO. Now, just because my forum name may suggest this, it's because I'm actually a researcher and author into the "Genuine" UFO phenomenon!
2] Space:1999 year one. For the epic scale, and "2001" look. At the time, an accurate view of how space exporation might have been if NASA had carried on with the Apollo missions, and onto Mars.
3] Thunderbirds...cos well, it was the first real Anderson series I watched from new...way way back in '65!!!!

1 Captain Scarlet & The Mysterons
2 Thunderbirds
3 Fireball XL5
4 The Secret Service
5 Stingray
6 Supercar
7 Joe 90
8 Terrahawks
9 Four Feather Falls
10 Torchy The Battery Boy

That's my top 10. Captain Scarlet is just brilliant - I like the darker feel to the programme. Fireball XL5 is my favourite black and white show with that super theme tune and The Secret Service for its unique blend of Supermarionation and real life. A pity it was only seen in the ATV, Granada and Southern regions.
