Well, I am reading about this for the first time and I believe that such shows are very interesting. I can start watching it once I finish watching shows by Andy Yeatman on Netflix. It all started when I was at my sisterís place and her kids were watching these shows. Oh, I fell in love with the content.

If you like UFO, you might like Space 1999:

Don't know if this is UK only?

I found this playlist on YouTube that has the UFO series:


Re: Space 1999, I loved that series growing up! The first season is definitely better than the second season, though, having watched them again as an adult.

dbeachy1 you are right about the better of the years of Space 1999. I loved that series. Notebook, your link is not just UK. I can access it from Canada. Unfortunately, Canada is about to play Finland in the World Junior Hockey Championships. You know how it is for Canadians ... religious devotions.

Watched the whole run over the summer. It's X-Com the TV show, if I may use an anachronism.

It's a bit slow paced for what I'm used to but the visuals are great. And also much more mature stories than I expected.

I guess I should rewatch them at some point... All I can remember from them from childhood was that I found them really weird. But they were in space, so of course child-me didn't care. I watched strictly for the spaceships, not for such mundane things as "story" or "characters"

UFO was a great SF series of its time, and is still worth watching! Being produced in the early 70s it conveys the lifestyle (e.g. costumes) and humor of the late 60s.

My favourite quote:
Colonel Paul Foster is flying a plane. He gets an UFO warning and descends into a scattered cloud layer.
"These clouds give as much cover as a G-string on a belly dancer!"

Something which I find fascinating is the liquid breathing the aliens used. This was years before anyone considered such a thing for deep diving. (See "The Abyss".) I don't remember the reason that they were breathing a liquid, but I think that one of the human captives had to breath the same stuff, and he survived.
