Jon Abbott on Irwin Allen's 1960s TV Programs

"Allen's Shows come from an age when science-fiction and fantasy TV shows were watched by everyone, not just an elite clique of enthusiasts."

While it may be an exaggeration to say "everyone" ― perhaps "anyone" would be a better word here ― the author is correct in that such television fare today has what I call a "boutique audience". (Look at the viewer numbers for any SF/fantasy TV show from the last two decades.)
