Your Space 1999 clips are ace and that page seems completely deranged - although I'm not sure how much of that is just because the show itself was like that.


I'd be curious to watch Blakes 7 but I couldn't be arsed to spend that much time watching it, especially if it turns out to have been rubbish all along.


I never saw the first series - I think it was on after my bedtime. I remember being frightened as a child by one episode with some carnivorous insect women, or something. I only started watching it properly after Blake had gone and Avon was in charge.


I think these things tend to be best left in the past - it's better just to listen to the theme tune and watch the opening credits and a few random clips to whet your appetite.


I've got a friend (BLT or Tony Blackburn or one of them) who can still watch all these things - old Doctor Whos and the Tomorrow People etc - but I just don't have the stamina for it myself.


That said I think that the new Battlestar Galactica is a different kettle of fish - taking the original concept and reworking it to make a much better programme than the original.

Hey Papa - Why doesn't this thing like my paragraphs? Have I got to do a special sort of carriage return or is the technology just not compatible with my cutting edge commodore 64 technology?

not been funny or nothing right, but:

you're about 90, so may experience some involuntary hand shaking when typing.

you're well known for voluntary hand shaking.

may be difficult to type when hands and wrist are covered in heavy jewellery jewellery, and holding enormous cuban cigar.

I should report that abuse - but instead I'll just go and rate the rest of your threads with one star.

Actually, I wanted to apologise cos I accidentally clicked on the star thing to rate the thread and so once I started I went and rated more of them but I didn't realise it was going to stay there or be visible to anyone else. Could someone else go and rate some of the threads cos I'm a bit embarrassed about it.

Did you ever see "Cruise of the Gods"? It was a one-off special on BBC starring Rob Brydon but also with David Walliams, Steve Coogan, James Cordon (from Gavin & Stacey) and an early appearance by Russell Brand (no I'm not that obsessive, I just found all that out trying to look it up on the internet).

Basically Rob Brydon plays a down on his luck actor who had previously been in a rubbish Blake's 7/Tomorrow People-type Sci-Fi show called "Children of Castor". He gets invited on a Fan Cruise run by the show's fan club where he has to interact with all the obsessive fans of the show and participate in panels and quizzes.

It was a really entertaining programme - I'm surprised it was only shown the once - but the funniest parts were the very brief clips you saw of the appalling "Children of Castor" show. I didn't realise but you can actually get Cruise Of The Gods on DVD - and it looks like you can watch all the Children of Castor stuff in the extras. I'd quite like to check it out but I don't really watch DVDs enough to justify buying them.
