Can you tell Irwin Allen's spectacular Sixties sci-fi shows apart?

Which series was it — Land of the Giants, Lost in Space, The Time Tunnel or Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea?


For children of the 1960s, nobody dazzled quite like Irwin Allen. Before Star Wars — and even before Star Trek — this television visionary brought fantastic new worlds to our living rooms. His four sensational TV shows — Land of the Giants, Lost in Space, The Time Tunnel and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea — set the standard for science-fiction. Cool ships! Talking robots! Colorful aliens! Far-flung adventure!

Let's see how well you can tell them apart! Good luck on your mission!

Here is a tip that you might not be aware of in that not only "The Outer Limits" but also many other classic Sci-Fi and other programs and movies of various genres are almost always available streaming for free 24/7 on Pluto TV if you can stand the frequent add breaks...Enjoy !
