Back in the 1980’s, these were not that tacky. As a ten year old in 1980, I found many of these shows to be very entertaining. That was then, this is now… awful. Awful in a fun and nostalgic way though 😉
So there I was, again, searching through random image on Google when I came up with the idea to do a post about the WORST attempts at live action Superhero shows ever. Well, I found several lists along with images and the world has enough negative posts about everything.
I decided to post a few images of, what I feel to be, the best executions of superhero(ish) characters to make it to the small screen. I won’t list (Green) Arrow, the Flash, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., or the bad-assness of Dare Devil, since they all go without saying that they are some of the best shows to date based on comic book material. So without further ado I bring you, in no particular order, my favorite heroes that can be found on television.
My first crush. ^_^
Tarzan was always a favorite show of mine in the early 1970’s.
Before Reeve there was Reeves.
I don’t remember much about this show, except that it impressed me when I was in the sixth grade.
Still a classic.
Man From Atlantis from 1977
The Monster Squad was another favorite. Supernatural Superheroes.
Justin Hartleys Green Arrow and Michael Shanks Hawkman Smallville Justice League episode
This fits the spirit of the superhero show.
The Power of Isis
Tw of the best heroes ever, Mr. Tom Baker, the fourth Doctor and Liz Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith 🙂
Doctor Fate (Brent Stait) and Stargirl (Britt Irvin) Smallville Justice League episode
I still love this show.
Super Spies rank right up there as well. Wild, Wild West.
Rex Smith played Daredevil in the late 80’s. Recognise the suit?
The Kato show… oh I mean the Green Hornet 😉
Beastmaster was an okay show.
Hayley Atwell in Agent Carter (2015)
Yes. This is going to be a great show. Trust me.
Xena. Nuff Said.
Guy Williams as Zorro!
Ultraman! The show responsible for my ultra geekness!
Campy, yes, but still a fun show to enjoy OR make fun of.
