Star Trek and A little bit of Mulawin

According to a survey by a UK company Star Trek is the most missed TV series. The results of the survey was reported in a BBC article entitled "Star Trek is 'most missed' series". Here are the results of the survey:

1. Star Trek
2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
3. Friends
4. Fawlty Towers
5. Blake's 7
6. The X-Files
7. Babylon 5
8. Stargate
9. Seinfeld
10. The A-Team

Fawlty Towers is considered one of the top UK sitcom starring Jonathan Cleese, Prunella Scales, Andrew Sachs and others. The sitcom was about the mis-adventures of a proprietor of a bed and breakfast (Hotel?) his family, his guests and staff.

I remember watching Star Trek reruns with friends and enjoying. One of the shows I wish they showed more often. The A-Team?

By the way how did Mulawin get an A rating from the Cinema Classification Board? It was a so-so movie. It looked more like a TV special and suffered from a series inherent defects. First, TV sets do not translate well into film sets. Two, the number of people in a battle scene between two forces should be at least a force of people, at least two armies, otherwise the scene becomes weak. The lack of forces, people fighting, is quite apparent in the big screen. Its not a total waste of Kodak film, the kids liked it because it sort of gives closure to the characters they watched in the fantasy soap (but the use of reincarnation seed through out the film was a bit taxing on the imagination)...But it was a so-so film and does not really deserve an A rating. Maybe the film board was grading on the curve?
