Gene,Given your work on PoPX, this one is up your alley! Well done!Gary
If you're into it, you know it will rock... and it does!
Ahhh..a good ol' fashioned retro Space Cutie!! Been in love with these babes ever since Space 1999 and the purple haired moonbase cuties. Nice one Gene. Terrific request Jeff!!
Gary - Yup, I do like this material. Thanks!Craig - Thanks! Glad you liked it!Royce - I never watched Space: 1999, but I did see some episodes of UFO, the british sci-fi show created by the same team that did Space: 1999. And they had the purple hair cuties. And the chain smoking, whiskey drinking, men. I found the show site: http://ufoseries.com/ and the lead actress was Gabrielle Drake. Google her. I wonder if there was a direct connection between the two shows?
Yep....out of this world :)
I said Space 1999 but meant UFO. Brain Freeze there for a moment I guess. The Gerry Anderson and the BBC made both series I think, but not certain on that. Loved the UFO show as a kid. Haven't seen it in years but always loved the design of the alien ships. That show was full of acronyms. S.I.D. and S.H.A.D.O. If I remmberm the series was set in 1980 and SHADO was situated beneath the offices of a movie studio in LA.
Royce - When I was a guest at the Baltimore Con a few years back, I stayed with my buddy J.C. Vaughn. When I got to his place, there were several comic folks watching UFO on DVD. I had never seen the show but was interested. Then on the screen is a space ship I had as a kid. It was die cast and heavy with a spring loaded missle on the front. Great for putting out eyes. I remember where I convinced my mom to buy it for me but I didn't know what it was from. All this talk made me look up the collection: $44.00 on DeepDiscountDVD.com but I won it tonight on eBay for $12.59. Top notch seller so it should be in good condition.One other show I remember seeing a few minutes of as a kid was The Champions. Another BBC show but I didn't know the name of it at the time. I only recently found out. It was a cross between The Challengers of the Unknown and the Six Million Dollar Man, via Tibet. :)
Big fan here of UFO. Despite the colorful, "mod" production design, it's actually a very dark show.Oh, and space girl? Drooool.....
Gene, you lucky dog!! Got the DVD for under $15? I am officially jealous. I would LOVE to relive my 12th and 13th year by watching a few episodes. UFO was on weekdays off and on during those two years and I tried to never miss it. I remember the Interceptor toy you mentioned with the missile. I had that as well as a SKY -1 toy as well. My brother Eric also had the SID satellite and one of the ground vehicles. Good times....
I really like the style of the show. Looking forward to actually seeing more. Thanks Chris!Royce, right place, right time. If you hadn't mention the purple hair moon base girls, I wouldn't have looked on eBay last night. :)
