Space: Above and Beyond

Lockdown 2020: Like many people I've spent a bit of time binge watching TV shows. Unlike some, I'm watching shows from the past that I enjoy. Much of modern TV doesn't appeal to me. I've just finished a complete re-watch of Space: Above and Beyond created by Glen Morgan and James Wong (both of X-Files... Continue Reading →

Strange New Worlds Part 2

Since yesterday's announcement of another new live-action Star Trek series I've been doing lots of thinking about the possible potential of the new show. From what we already know its set 10 years prior to Kirk taking command of the Enterprise. I'm assuming for now that it's set in the period after the events of... Continue Reading →

BSG Autographs

With my BSG re-watch now at an end (except for Caprica) I thought now might be a good time to put my BSG autographs up. I have two from the original show, those being Richard Hatch and Anne Lockhart.

I want to focus on two particular actors who still shine through in this re-watch. Anyone who has seen the show will recall that... Continue Reading →

Battlestar Galactica Revisited

Being a child of the 70s I grew up with the original Battlestar Galactica on TV. It followed, and benefited from the wake left by all the hype surrounding Star Wars and also faced a few lawsuits claiming that parts of Star Wars had been ripped off by the creators of Galactica. I was 6... Continue Reading →

Costume Recycling

Its been a long standing tradition in both TV and Film for costumes to be recycled. It happens both in the US and the UK and I'm sure elsewhere too. Three fairly well-known examples are below. First we have this space suit that appeared in the 1964 movie 'First Men In The Moon'. It then... Continue Reading →
