'Star Trek: Voyager,' 'Xena' Lead New Eligibility List For Portal Awards
The annual Rod Serling Award remembers shows that have stood the test of time
A decade can be a long time for fans of a show that no longer is in production. But at least there's still a way to commemorate it.
Airlock Alpha has released the Class of 2001 -- shows that ended in 2001 and are now eligible for the Rod Serling Award.
The award, named after "The Twilight Zone" creator, is part of Airlock Alpha's Portal Awards, the online fan awards that have attracted more than a million votes since it was founded in 1999. The Rod Serling Award honors the shows that are still prevalent in the minds of fans, even after being off the air for at least a decade.
"Xena" put Lucy Lawless on the map. The actress would later make her mark in shows like "Battlestar Galactica" and "Spartacus: Blood and Sand," but she will always be remembered as Xena, which broadcast its finale on June 18, 2001.
