Hey, I'm glad to hear that those old shows are still being broadcast! As hokey as some of those old sci-fi shows can be, there are still some real gems. One of my favorites is an adaptation of "The Defenders", by Phillip K. Dick. It starts out with a cliched post-apocalyptic, subterranean world, but it takes a very unexpected turn.
And regarding slash, it's not that I hate it, I just don't understand it. Of course, I've never been in a relationship with either gender, which might account for some of my confusion.
Did you ever hear the show (it's part of Dark Fantasy, I think) about the woman who ends up in the sewers of Paris with a maniac? As melodramatic as it was, it creeped the heck out of me. "Sooooooooo maaaaaany booooooones..."
