    1. Good morning, David, great job. Only #4 in this list is off the mark. All others are correct! Brilliant!

      Always wished that more of the Apes tv series could have been like The Trap. Thanks for an interesting list. What is number 12?

    3. Totally agree David. Really enjoyed The Trap and wished more of that series stayed on that track... so to speak. Post apocalyptic mass transit is just plain cool! Beneath the Planet of the Apes? Nuff said!

    4. Hi David -- #12 is from Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future (1987); the premiere episode "Shattered." I also agree with you about the TV series version of Planet of the Apes. The Trap was a great episode, and more episodes should have tread into the remains of the human world, as it did...

      Ah I never would have guessed that one. I often wonder what a more adult Apes tv series set in the Forbidden Zone would be like. One can but dream....

    Might try a few guesses too...

    2. The Outer Limits
    3. Lost In Space
    5. The Starlost
    9. Ark II
    11. Planet of the Apes - Animated Series

    1. David: Nice -- you took another 3 off the table (#2, #5, and #9). #9 Ark II was a trick, as well, because it uses left-over Planet of the Apes sets. Well-done for tagging it correctly!

    1. Greg,

      Holy cow! You mastered some of the absolutely most obscure images on this list. Namely, #4 -- The Name of the Game: "L.A. 2017." That is fantastic...and incredible. By the same token, you also identified correctly #13 as the TV series Whoops! I bow down before you, sir! :)
