Subtitle, that is very cool of you to organize the contents of this thread so nicely. I appreciate it!
I wanted to add a few of my favorite TV shows to the list:WKRP in Cincinnati
US Comedy / Sit-com, 22 minute episode format.
One of my favorite shows of the 70's and 80's. Clean entertainment with minimal amount of negative messages mixed in. Characters and actors consistent throughout entire series. This torrent has 88 episodes digitized from VHS, so you get the original music, although quality is not stellar, but it's totally watchable and enjoyable. Missing two episodes from the original series: Season 3 Episode 6 "A Mile In My Shoes" and Season 3 Episode 8 "Baby It's Cold Inside". I've attached an episode guide. Nope, looks like my 252 KB .doc is too big.

(but this changes) 6.71 GB totalThe Twilight Zone
A true classic from television and excellent sci-fi writing. Looking back on these episodes, I can see the origins of many sci-films that came after. Excellent quality and small file size. 28.1 GB total with very fast speed for 156 episodes and an interview between Rod Serling and Mike Wallace.The Prisoner
(1967-68) original series with Patrick McGoohan
Fascinating series that lasted only two seasons and 17 episodes is difficult to categorize between spy, political, and sci-fi. Seemingly bizarre two season series makes sense when understood from the perspective of predictive programming and social control.
The plot is a British secret agent suddenly and unpredictably
resigns his post and then finds himself prisoner on a strange little island with other characters from the intelligence millieu. The Village represents the future (from 1967 p.o.v.) surveillance society where "democracy" means committee-empowered control freaks are given say over everyone else's minor affairs, but the important decisions are left to the scientific dictatorship behind the scenes. Work credits are doled out to all citizens in good standing, small disobediences are punished with loss of status and presumed reduction in credits, thought criminals are re-educated with advanced mind control techniques, and those who rebel are met with the enigmatic force of a giant, white-translucent, all-powerful beach ball. The imagery is chocked full of Masonic and Fabian Society symbology for those who can spot it.
The later Prisoner mini-series from 2009 with Ian McKellan and Jim Caviezel is equally good, but even stranger, which reflects the overall changes in society from the relatively simpler outlook of the 60's to a more anything goes attitude 40-odd years later.
