THE WEEKEND IS HARDEST TO SOLVE TWO KEY THINGS: what to cook and what to see. So that you do not rush for a long time, sorting through the lists of the best by genre, author or year, we have compiled a recipe for the perfect vacation. Here are five TV shows from our collective past that are not a sin to revisit (and love) again - with completely different eyes.

Sledgehammer

The enchanting comedy series of the ABC channel, parodying films about tough cops, in particular, the Dirty Harry franchise. The great comedian David Rush plays Sledge Hammer, a San Francisco cop and racist, chauvinist, and downright moron with an unhealthy connection to his 44-gauge Magnum. The series was coined by Alan Spencer, Andy Kaufman's friend and child prodigy who joined the Writers Guild at just 15 years old. Sledgehammer was certainly too weird for television at the time and, despite its loyal fan base, was not particularly popular. The show was canceled after its second season, and Spencer has been working as a script doctor ever since.

Quantum leap

One of the best science fiction series of the early 90s, written by the most important television producer and screenwriter of those years, Donald Bellisario. A scientist with a telling name, Sam Beckett, is studying the theory of time travel and, in the course of one of the experiments, enters a quantum accelerator. From that moment on, he moves in time intervals and between the bodies of people and in the process is forced to help those to establish their lives. He has a charismatic hologram in his assistants named El. "Quantum Leap" was essentially an anthology, its structure allowed the authors to implement almost any ideas and plots. The series, therefore, quite successfully lasted five seasons, without losing much in quality.

Lexx

Perhaps the main television curiosity of the 90s, a fantastic comedy series produced in Canada and Germany, which definitely left its indescribable imprint. In some very distant future, in which mankind is at war with the insect civilization, four fugitives from the law accidentally steal the "Lexx" - a sentient and living spaceship and at the same time the deadliest weapon in the universe. Among the heroes are the former guard, and now the captain of the "Lex", the wayward slave of love, the immortal murderer and poet, as well as the loving head of the robot. The series was distinguished by an absolutely disregard for its own tone - over the course of its four seasons, it turned from honest science fiction into an absolute mess, then into drama and back.

Hunger

An absolute product of its time, however, it remained unique in its own way. An anthology series, in which each episode told a separate story with an otherworldly or simply gloomy background and a clear bias towards the soft erotica popular at that time on television. Essentially, Hunger had nothing to do with the vampire classic of the same name, although Tony Scott and his nephew Jake directed several episodes. David Bowie played in one of the episodes, and also acted as an entertainer in the second season (in the first, this task was no less aptly performed by Terence Stamp). By today's standards, all this looks naive and old-fashioned, but also charming in its own way. It's also interesting to spot familiar faces like young Lena Headey and Daniel Craig.

Beyond the possible

Another anthology series. The original Beyond the Possible started in the early 60s and was the main competitor to The Twilight Zone, only darker, more inventive and aesthetic. In the mid-90s, it was more or less successfully restarted and kept this story afloat for seven seasons. The authors tried to preserve all these qualities together with an emphasis on hard fiction instead of the parable aesthetics of the "Zone".The stories of George R.R. Martin, Stephen King, Harlan Ellison and other masters of the genre were used as material for these episodes.
