Indeed, I have just finished rewatching S1 and the parallels are striking.

My Name is John Creightin... I'm on a living ship... being hunted by an insane military commander....
D'Argo's back story is the same as Gan's. He is in prison for killing the guard who killed his wife.
Thank God It's Friday Again is Farscape's Traitor
That Old Black Magic is Farscape's Duel
Jeremiah Creighton has elements of Trial
M'Lee is Zil, only she's carnivorous.
Creighton has had a Peace Keeper program inserted into his brain, ala Voice From The Past.
Talyn is an immensely powerful vessel with a mind of its own that bonds to its pilot and is lost in season 3.

I have recently started my next box set watch.

Wonder Woman - yes the Lynda Carter version. I am currently on the first season which was the one set during WWII. It is rather dated and slow but still has another humour and action to keep me entertained.

It's also of note that after the first 3 episodes her spin is not the usual flash spin that is common in later episodes but instead the camera is locked off as we see Diana Prince spin slowly, her hair falling out of her tight bun, merged with Wonder Woman holding Diana's uniform which she then hides away after she has finished her transformation.

I started rewatching Xena for some reasons. The first episodes were funny but still surprisingly good. i think along with Whedon and Straczynski, Sam Raimi also brought something new to television. And the soundtrack is exceptional Smile

The original (and best) RoboCop movie from the '80s - still holds up today with its gory violence, social and political satire and dark humour. I'd buy that for a dollar. Smile

Let's see, in the past few weeks we have watched, The Oozing Brain, The Deadly Mantis, The Wasp Woman and last night, The Leech Woman- where I can state that there were no leeches in the entire film! We have a number of cheesy film dvd's and love seeing them.

Episode 4 of Wonder Woman had the flash spin! Yay!!!

Essentially, yes... and coming in contact with them can petrify you, but apparently only if you are a peripheral character.

OMG- we've seen all of those and more. The Brain from Planet Arous- a real winner with John Agar in the lead role. He's done a lot of aweful films! The Killer Shrews is great, so is the Giant Gila Monster, made by the same people. Tarantula is good. Robot Monster! Monolith Monsters is another winner as is The Deadly Mantis, Them, and my personal favorite, Invasion of the Hell Creatures. Of course, we are also huge fans of MST 3K, Riff Trax and Cinematic Titanic- all the same group in different guises. If we cannot see one of those we 'riff' the film ourselves! The Riff Trax 'Shorts' are especially good if not a bit scary at times. (Not terrified scary, but scary in the fact many of the shorts were shown to us kids in the 1960's at school and it's scary to see the times we lived through- like 'Duck and Cover' on how to 'survive' a nuclear blast at school. Be sure to climb under your desks, kiddies! Cheers!

Edit: There is one film which name slips my mind at the moment, but there are invisible monsters attacking people until some type of ray or electrical apparatus is made which shows the monsters to be flying brains with the spinal cords and spine attached. Truly weird and terrifying to a 10 year old kid- when I first saw it. Laughable now!

"Casino", the spiritual successor to "Goodfellas"... oh, my God, I have never heard so many F words in a single movie (about 9/10 of them are said by Joe Pesci).

Fiend without a face? That the brains one? squelchy sound-effects? Marshall Thompson from Daktari? Have you seen the Cushing one Island of Terror? Silicates. You'd love that. First Man in Space, Monster from the haunted sea? (really funny! Roger Corman, great dialogue and intentionally subversive)
You can't put the original Thing and Them! on those lists though, they are really good classic scifi, great atmosphere and music etc!!

and I love It came from Outer space, pure Ray Bradbury dialogue, the wind in the wires...my hero

I think you are correct about the title of the brain monster film. Another classic is Earth vs the Flying Saucers. I think it was Ray Harryhausen doing the special effects.

I really donīt like movies with mafia but they are generally also great movies so it is difficult *not* to watch them Smile I havenīt seen Casino but I recently read an article about "Whatever happened to Joe Pesci".
