Recently at lunch we had a conversation about old television shows and Space 1999 came up. I had nearly forgotten about Moon Base Alpha, which makes the video above all the more compelling. It was the 1970s and I was just a teen, but I remember watching. I even made a model of the Eagle spaceships featured on the show. However, after viewing some of the clips on You Tube I don't remember there being such high melodrama. Space 1999 was a very serious show with serious themes, but I just remember the cool space stuff and strange aliens.
I wonder if Space 1999 would be a good candidate for a modern-day remake ala Battlestar Galactica?
