    2 has to be from the original Trek, but which episode, I can't tell you.
    4 is from Night Stalker?
    7 Super friends. (that's a blast from my past;)
    13, Buffy? I'm resisting the urge to hit imdb and cheat to find out which episode.

  2. Hi Jane!

    You did a great job there, my friend. # 2 is from Star Trek ("Wink of an Eye"), #7 is from the Superfriends (a blast from the past indeed), and # 13 is indeed from Buffy, from a sixth season episode entitled "Gone."

    # 4 is not from Night Stalker, but you are absolutely in the right time period of TV shows.

    #6) Space:1999, 'Rules of Luton'


  4. #11: Marcie Ross (Clea Duvall) and others in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, "Out of Mind, Out of Sight."

  5. Two more great (and difficult) identifications!

    Meredith: Yep, that's the "Alien Invisible" from Space:1999 Year Two's "The Rules of Luton."

    And J.D. You correctly identified Marcie Ross (Clea Duvall) from the first season episode of Buffy, "Out of Mind, Out of Sight."

    Excellent job, both of you on two tough "invisible" images.


  6. 4. David McCallum in the Invisible Man

    8. Greatest American hero

  7. Will:

    Excellent job there, buddy. Two more tough ones are off the table.

    #4 is indeed David McCallum from the 1975 short-lived series, "The Invisible Man."

    and 8 is from The Greatest American Hero first season episode "Here's Looking at You, Kid!"

    Outstanding job!


  8. 10. The Flash
    14. The Invisible Man (Sci-Fi Channel, 1999)

  9. Hi Howard!

    Great job, as always.

    #10 is inded from The Flash (1990), "Sight Unseen."

    # 14 is not however, from The Invisible Man (Sci-Fi Channel, 1999). Still, you are doing a "super" job id'ing these images.


  10. John, Sorry, I meant to say that 12 was The Invisible Man. Are 9 and 10 both from the Flash?
    And, based on your "quote," I'm going to guess that 14 is from Smallville.

  11. Also, is 5 from "The Gemini Man?"

  12. Brian3:59 AM

    I'm late to the party again!

    #5 = Gemini Man?

  13. Hello, everyone!

    Howard: #14 is from Smallville, indeed, the first season episode "Shimmer."

    And yes, # 5 is from The Gemini Man.

    #10, however, is not The Flash. Think of a more "extreme possibility." :)

    And Brian -- you accurately named # 5 as "The Gemini Man," but Howard just beat you to it!

    best to you both,


  14. #10 is the X-Files episode 'Fearful Symmetry', yes?

  15. Will:

    Yes sir! Outstanding! Image #10 is "Fearful Symmetry" indeed, from X-Files season two!

    great job.
