    I remember seeing this sci-fi tv series as a kid, back in the eighties. It was a bit scary for me as a kid. By far the scariest character was somebody that was often depicted as a red light that would float wherever it wanted to go. I really want to remember what show it was, but I can't.

    Can anybody help me with this? Both V and Twilight Zone are possibilities, but I can't find any information about the red light character...

    Just to throw names out there, could it also have been in the X-Files or The Outer Limits?

    This doesn't sound remotely familiar. Can you give us some more info?

    Like I said, this episode scared the junk out of me as a kid. I'll never forget it!

    That wasn't my first thought, based on the description, but I guess this is it.

    For a cheesy series, it was often a lot of fun to watch, at least in the first season. In the second season, when it tried to be Star Trek, it lost a lot of its charm.

    Do I win a new iPod Touch? Or maybe a nice Apple Tablet? I'll settle for a Power Mac G6.

    Sorry, I haven't been checking on this thread for a while. The Buck Rogers clip was an awesome find, but unfortunately not the series I was looking for. The Phoenix clip was also a nice find, but it was definitely a space series. And not animated, by the way.

    EDIT: Oh, and thanks for all the suggestions, of course!
