shows, particularly D'Onofrio episodes of "Criminal Intent," the Moriarty era of the mothership show (years 1-4) and the Alex Cabbot era of "SVU" (years 2-5).

, specifically the B&W kinescoped version GSN shows Monday through Sunday at 3AM. A time capsule of class and elegance put to the service of a simple panel guessing game, when being called an 'elite' was meant as a complement and suave emcee John Charles Daly presided over class acts like Arlene Francis and Bennett Cerf as they guessed average people's line of work. Celebrity Mystery Guest appearances remain thrilling 50+ years after the secret is out.
Honorable mentions: "The Incredible Hulk," "Sailor Moon," "Dexter," "The X-Files," "The Sopranos," "Cardcaptor Sakura" and "The Price Is Right."
