Did not know this channel existed. It is local to me too! I'll try to Pick it up OTA or bus out the AppleTV, if needed.

B5 is also on amazon, and worth a watch if you've never seen it. Just suffer through the first season and you're golden.

1999 as well ? I had a love affair with that show when it first aired. Of course all the aliens spoke with English accents...

I started watching it again when it hit Amazon. I'd forgotten how bad the music was. There's a lot that doesn't hold up today but I think thats the worst part. Still enjoyable.

Sure, but what about "Night of the Comet"?

Daddy would have bought us Uzis.

I think the music is the best part, after the overall story arc. The Acting, the sets, the VGA CGI....not so much



San Antonio, TX (in the old city)


"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

Just finished binging Space 1999.

It's not so good as my childhood recollection would have had it.

There's hardly an element that's actually sci-fi. It's far-out fantasy in a space-milieu with bad acting and hardly 5 minutes go by without the introduction of new plot holes. Continuity-gaps and deus ex resolutions abound.

Still enjoyable.

My memory is really foggy. I think I watched Space: 1999 when I was a kid, but I can't remember anything about it. But I'm certain I watched UFO, which was another british sci-fi TV series. Can't remember much about that either.

I used to watch Space 1999 but all I remember was really wanting the model of the Eagle One.
