Rewatch - Sapphire & Steel and Space:1999

Ah, squeezing the Americans is why my local PBS station dropped Doctor Who 20 years ago. I'm still traumatized.
anyway I don't know what's going on, but it looks great! LOL

"You'd never get a cat to be a servant. You ever see a cat return a stick? "Hey, man! You threw the stick, you go get it yourself! I'm busy! If you wanted the stick so bad, why'd you throw it away in the first place?"

It certainly is different between the UK and US modes of creating a television series. A studio here would buy the 'rights' to an idea or book, and secure the money and then make a pilot for the series. Then they'd shop it to the various networks to see if they'd buy it for transmission. Then if the numbers were good (the volume of people watching) they'd either order X number of programs or cancel plans to go ahead with the series.

Entirely correct. The good old days in Chicago, we could watch over 5 hours of British television on Sunday evenings. Masterpiece theatre, Monty Python, Dave Allen at Large, a complete story of Doctor Who, and finishing off with The Two Ronnies. Not so now.

The basic premise of Space:1999 is that a nuclear accident has thrown the Moon out into space and, thanks to shortcuts through 'wormholes' etc, the stranded crew of the moonbase spend the series trying to find a new planet to settle on before they run out of supplies, oxygen, water etc.

Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

Indeed - we still don't do pilot episodes over here; you either have the money to make the whole lot up front, or you don't start. Both approaches have their merits...

Ah, I'm from your poorer sister city in Missouri, near STL.
Our PBS station seemed to drag it's feet to get the same stuff other stations had. Then they'd show it late Sunday night.
Off topic, I miss the old Mystery and Masterpeice Theater when they were seperate shows. I miss Alister Cook and Vincent Price. Happy Childhoold memories...sigh

Yes, they combined Masterpiece and Mystery together, haven't they. I'm still a PBS member and have been enjoying the latest series of Inspector Lewis and The Great British Baking Show.

It certainly beats plastic rocks and cat litter like classic DW and B7 had!

That's how Homeworld should have looked if there had been a budget.

That and vermiculite often. Being a gardener, I easily spotted that.
