Fantasy Island
157 episodes (1977-84) 60m


A resort host (Ricardo Montalban) and his diminutive sidekick somehow manage to make the wishes and fantasies of their guests come true. But, of course, there is always a morally reflective catch to things. Long-running hit series that took advantage of the premise to parade a host of well-known guest stars through the credits.

Highway to Heaven
111 episodes (1984-89) 60m


Michael Landon starred in this story of an angel sent by 'The Boss' to buddy up with an ex-cop and go around showing people a better way. Some (perhaps many) found all the moralising a bit overbearing, but the quantum niceness managed to attract a family audience that kept the show chugging along for five seasons.

Touched By an Angel
212 episodes (1994-2003) 60m


A wave of fan protest saw this show survive cancellation in its first season to become one the highest rated shows on CBS. An angel and her supervisor help troubled people by letting them know that God hasn't forgotten them. Occasionally the not-so-bad Angel of Death offers assistance as well. Real tear-jerking stuff.

Long-running series about a sister-act trio of beautiful witches who together, as it is written, are the Charmed Ones.

The Dresden Files
12 episodes (2007) 60m


Based on Jim Butcher's series of novel about a private investigator who happens to be a wizard, regrettably this show never quite got off the ground. Starring the affable Paul Blackthorne as Harry Dresden the episodes that were made are all topnotch. Plenty of demons, werewolves and vampires to keep viewers occupied and some nice chemistry with co-star Valerie Cruz.
