Space 1999

Just been watching an episode of Space 1999 on ITV 4...hooray for digital freeview tv!

Think I have mentioned elsewhere in this humble blog about the Space 1999 issue and only getting to see it once in a blue moon here in Wales...or did I dream that? Anyway, it is still looking good, the sets are so very 1970's that you cannot help but feel a nostalgic twinge. It stands up well, the acting is pretty good, and the overall feel is excellent, not as corny or cheesy as the original Star Trek, and right up there with the later space shows like "Buck Rogers" and "Battlestar Galactica" (tho 1999 didn't have anything like Erin Gray - Col. Wilma Deering) A classic still!!!

Useless/useful trivia moment....Catherine Schell who played "beautiful Psychon alien Maya" was also Lady Litton in the brilliant "Return of The Pink Panther" and as Bond girl "Nancy" in the George Lazenby James Bond film "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" (just an excuse to put a pretty lady in my blog for a change)

I could never tell who was supposed to be mating with who on that show. Was Captain Koenig shagging the blonde woman?

They were married in real life...so Im sure some mating was going on!

Er , it's Commander Koenig not Captain. He is supposed to be in love with Dr.Helena Russell (the blonde woman you refer to)As to whether they were mating is anyone's guess.
