hey ed...really good poll...really good list (i remember them all)...

back then...with only three channels and pbs...you tended to watch everything...and i did watch mostly everything on this list...so many good choices (like ironside, mission impossible, and hawaii five-o...)

and sometimes it's hard to judge 50 years later...tastes change so what was my favorite then might not be my favorite now...but...

even though star trek seems like an obvious vote...thinking back i would have to go with get smart...couldn't get enough of max...

In more opinion, Roger Moore was much better suited for 'The Saint' than James Bond! - That was a great show!

Moore's James Bond films had a lot more humorous dialogue than other films in the series, and his Bond seemed a bit more sophisticated than other versions of the character. 

Not a bad version, but it tends to diminish Bond's status as the Agency's gun-for-hire and ruthless assassin.
