Star Trek TNG Intro

This is the intro to the very first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. It started airing 20 years ago and by the time I knew this program even existed I was already halfway thru its very fifth season. As a result almost everyday from Monday thru Saturday my TV was tuned to WPWR Channel 50 at 6PM for old episodes during the week and a more current first run episode at 6PM on Saturdays with a rerun of the episode or previous episode at 10:30PM Sundays.

After that episode aired I could also get a taste of the original Star Trek that would air directly after TNG on Sunday night. Over time I grew to love the origianl Star Trek more than TNG, but if it wasn't for TNG I wouldn't have likely gotten into Star Trek.

Doctor Who: The Five Doctors

Starring Peter Davidson, Jon Pertwee, Patrick Troughton, and Richard Hurndall as the Doctor. Tom Baker and William Hartnell made cameo appearances in the form of images on stock footage. Tom Baker didn't make it because he didn't want to, and William Hartnell passed away in 1975. That's why Richard Hurndall played the "first Doctor". Then we get to see some of the past companions of the Five Doctors as well. Enjoy the first segment.
