The scene where the official comes out of the vat covered in alien filth and staggers down the stairs....horrific!

Much as I prefer the serial to the film - Donlevy is simply terrible - the film is much better, certainly paced better for a modern audience. And thankfully it doesn't have the wandering around on an asteroid that's clearly made from some packing cases and black cloth costing about 2 and 6!

I'd dearly like the BBC to remake them as period pieces, preferably with Micheal Kitchen (Foyle's War) as Bernard Quatermass.

I will second your suggestion. Kitchen would be a great Quatermass.

The African Queen with the incomperable Humphrey Bogart and Katherine Hepburn. A master class of acting!

And the final installment of this series of The Mandalorian! Wow. I mean Wow.

Am pondering on Kitchen being Quatermass....mmmm....I may be pondering for some time Grin

Scruffy, a 1980 animated film (originally a 3-part TV miniseries) based on a 1978 book based on a true story. You can view it here (it's only about an hour long, as it originally aired as a Saturday morning cartoon in 3 weekly parts): https://www.youtu...zLlXZrmm18

That was on TV the other day. We visited the in-laws and they had their telly on, in the middle of watching. I was proud to be able to identify which movie it was after one quick glance at a random scene - even though I've not seen it for years. I do love the old Bond films Smile

We actually went to Circus Circus when we went on holiday to LV many years ago. Quite honestly, if you get the chance to go there...do it! When our plane landed it quickly exited the runway and when I looked out the window I could see all the other planes stacked up waiting to land...phew!!
Cold.....you don't know the meaning of cold.
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of the window!!!

Just started a rewatch of the remake of Battlestar Galactica. It is one of a few remakes that justifies its existence. Exciting, intense and a great storyline mostly well written. I look forward to seeing if I will change my mind about that last comment. I have always thought that the series lost its way after one of the most brilliant cliffhangers in any tv genre. The ensuing break, due to the ongoing writers' strike, changed things I always thought, for the worst. We shall see. I can only say that watching BSG when I did 2010-2011, helped me through a difficult time. Made me feel there was hope in life, if that is not overstating things. Only I can answer that! Similarly, watching the 1st season of B7 buoys my spirits. The power of great tv.

I loved the remake of BSG, having not seen the original TV series. I saw the movie, and didn't think much of it. But Hubby was completely the opposite, having been a fan of the original.

However, I only saw the first 2 or 3 series of new BSG, due to the falling out between Sky & Virgin TV which meant that we lost Sky One. I never managed to catch up with the last series, and don't know what happened in the end (save that fans were disappointed).

But the early series - WOW. So dark, so intense, such great characters in all shades of ambiguity, doing good things for bad reasons and vice versa. I loved the music, and used it as temp score when I was editing 'Merlin'.

Similarly, watching the 1st season of B7 buoys my spirits. The power of great tv.

It's fascinating the way these dystopian TV series have such power to raise the spirits. I return to B7 again and again, and it never fails.

On the other hand, the ultra-dystopian 'Handmaid's Tale' is so gruelling, that although it's superb TV, I don't think I could rewatch it to the same extent. Or even at all. Once was quite enough for some of those eps. Husband found me watching one evening (I was clutching a cuddly toy and may have been wincing), and asked: "Why are you doing this to yourself? This is not a happy series!"

Remake BSG is available on the bbc iplayer in its entirety! Very good of them. It beats 90% of what the bbc makes these days.

I'm currently watching Babylon 5. While not as dystopian as B7 it has some satisfying shades of grey. As G'Kar put it in one episode, nobody is exactly what they seem.

Dystopian stories can be if not cheering at least comforting. I rewatched B7 for the first time as an adult at a point when "life sucks and you go on" was exactly what I needed.

I rewatched it to the cliffhanger at the end of series 3 and then got sidetracked. Bit typical for me I'm afraid. But you hit the nail on the head with your comment 'life sucks and you go on'. It's the going on that gets me every time. In the case of B5, the differing life trajectories of G'Kar and Londo was enthralling.

got the quatermass 2 poster on my wall. Donlevys wig used to blow off, and he made a pass at Bryan forbes apparently, much to his surprise! Me watch Trek discovery season 3, lot better.
 
One Spare Part
Much to bryan forbes' surprise? Did he jump out on him then? From behind a rocket? Or a silo? Lol. He is not the best Quatermass as folk here have mentioned. Perhaps he was bored and was in need of a distraction...Pfft

Battlestar Galactica (2003).
From the beginning. On BBC iPlayer.
I've not watched it since it was originally broadcast.
Frakkin' good, isn't it?

It was a fascinating take on the original concept.
I thought the mini series, the first full season and the last season were absolutely brilliant.

The middle seasons, not so much.
