Tom Hanks was executive producer for this Emmy-winning 12-part drama on the U.S. space program. Spanning 1961 to '72, the series has all the right stuff---impressive scripts, elaborate special effects and solid performances by a large cast. Part 1 (which Hanks also directed) melds those elements into re-creations of two major missions: the exhilarating 1965 spacewalk by Ed White, and a 1966 flight that tested the skill and courage of Neil Armstrong.

Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman

4 Seasons
A sleek, sexy, Emmy-nominated 1990s take on the enduring superhero, culled from DC Comics, which has spawned numerous successful film and TV versions of him as boy and man. All of which further demonstrated that while Kryptonite can kill the Man of Steel, changing times can't. Here, leads Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher have the looks and the chemistry, and the timeless question (seriously, how can Lois NOT know Clark is Superman?) plays itself out until they find true love.
