I grew up watching Vic Morrow as Sgt. Chip Saunders and Rick Jason as Lt. Gil Hanley in a TV war series
Combat and Robert Conrad as James West and Ross Martin as Artemus Gordon, two US secret service agents in a TV Western series Wild Wild West--- two of my favorites including other TV shows like Alfred Hitchcock Presents (50s show airing in the 60s), Bonanza, Wanted Dead or Alive, The Rat Patrol, Have Gun Will Travel, Maverick, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Man With a Camera, Mission Impossible, The Rifleman, Colt 45, Perry Mason, Batman and three of my favorite TV Sci-fi series--- The Twilight Zone, Land of the Giants and The Time Tunnel. Most of these highly successful 60s TV series are readily available in home videos and DVD box sets, where you can watch and enjoy them anytime.

Those were really good serials worth remembering. I could add 77 Sunset Strip, Route 66, Sea Hunt, Tombstone Territory. The 70s brought us, Hawaii 5-O, Kung Fu, and the 80s, The Equalizer...



Sayang hindi ko na inabot ang mga western series na narito. Gusto ko rin ang Rat Patrol, Combat at ang Twilight Zone series. Nakabili na ako ng complete DVD series ng Rat Patrol at Twilight Zone pero iyong combat wala akong mahanap. Isa pa sa gusto ko ay ang Kung-fu series ni David Carradine.
