My pick would be the Mantis:

Miles Hawkins thought he had it all -- money, brains, a great family and a killer serve. A bullet changed his life. Left him paralyzed. Now, today, it's about to change again. Hawkins has invented a "harness." It's a piece of cutting edge technology with a headgear which allows the transmitters in the brain to bypass the spine. Translation: he can walk again. Actually, he can do more than that. He has more than he had before. Increased strength, speed, agility. The one thing he can't do is be normal. Either he's in a wheelchair, or he's in this techno-getup. Can't take a stroll in the park like you or me. What's he to do? At first a reluctant hero, Hawkins is drawn into a world of fighting crime because the violence which turned his life upside-down is doing the same to the world around him. While in the harness and headset, he assumes the identity of the Mantis and fights back. He's armed with a sophisticated array of hi-tech tools like the Chrysalid, a prototype police vehicle that can fly and go underwater. He's assisted by two people. John Stonebrake is his long-time friend and professional colleague who also happens to be the best man around for turning Hawkins' theories into nuts and bolts circuit boards. Taylor Savidge is a fast-wheeling, Gen-X bike courier who found out about the Hawkins/Mantis connection and demanded his way onto a team where an action junkie like himself can feel at home. Lined up in opposition is everyone else. The cops (including Detective Leora Maxwell who Hawkins is falling for) thinks he's making them look bad and want him brought to justice as a vigilante. The media wants to expose him. The criminals think he's bad for business. "M.A.N.T.I.S." takes place in a huge megalopolis on the West Coast. It takes place today. He could be in your neighborhood tonight. The Mantis...

That's a great question. My pick would be the original British sci-fi TV show UFO.  It had a lot or original ideas for its time including a secret underground headquarters known as SHADDO. I would love to see an updated version. 

Mine would be the series, "Cliffhangers" from 1979. This series consisted of three shorter shows within the show. There was "The Curse of Dracula" starring Michael Nouri, "Stop Susan Williams" starring Susan Anton, and "The Secret Empire" starring relative unknown Geoffrey Scott, but was created by Kenneth Johnson, creator of "V". The show was an homage to the old school movie serials of the 1930s and 40s, especially "The Secret Empire". Each episode ended in a cliffhanger of course. Before the show was canceled, only "The Curse of Dracula" finished its full story arc. 

I rarely participate in your wonderful discussions, I'm often content to live vicariously through this really cool community. Anyways, my choice would be Fringe. Between the gadgets, the characters - Walter or Astrid, and of course, the cases, it was unfortunate that the show came to its end. 

Firefly. Had a lot of potential and needed more stories developed.

I would bring back Land of the Giants.  The series only ran 2 years, and at the time, was the most expensive series on network television.  With all the technical advances in special effects, cost would not be an issue these days.

@Larry Johnson: yeah, UFO was an awesome show, inspiring to me as a kid, it gets my vote. I would have picked the x-files though if the reboot hadn't been so horrible.

Good choice.

Night Gallery and Night Stalker, fun times.

Thanks. Only one season, and I was totally hooked.

Thia was one of my favorites... I would not mind seeing it back and updated.

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
