Series that's better than B7
President Solvite
STAR MAIDENS!

When I bought this series on DVD a few years ago it really made me reappraise what I was missing from a quality Sci-fi program

i86.photobucket.com/albums/k93/phantomdennis/MedusaCity_zpse745c3a5.jpg

It covers the story of Earth's first encounter with aliens from a planet called Medusa

i86.photobucket.com/albums/k93/phantomdennis/Blakeshair_zps666ef90a.jpg

Shem annoyed that he can't get the hair style he wants and so defects to planet earth looking for that perfect hairdresser and a late pub closing time that will serve pork scratchings and real ale.

i86.photobucket.com/albums/k93/phantomdennis/Younggareth_zpsea1f5cac.jpg

By hijacking a presidential yacht. Shem and his drinking buddy Adam, flee female oppression and hope for sanctuary on a shining planet called Earth!

i86.photobucket.com/albums/k93/phantomdennis/professor75_zps25aef305.jpg

Upon meeting Earth Authorities, Professor Ensor takes them in and the fugitives get to experience life on a 70's earth with slightly better fashion styles than Medusa

But annoyed that the men won't be back for tea, they are pursued by Medusa's sinister agents who are determined to bring them back so that they can perform their err.. domestic duties.

Star Maidens provides a fascinating insight to a society, completely at odds with our own...

i86.photobucket.com/albums/k93/phantomdennis/yourangmilady_zpse414712a.jpg

and in 13 exciting episodes we get to meet, aliens, rogue androids, kipper ties and flared trousers. All of these we hope our heroes can overcome before the series budget is exhausted!

Purchase it now, at any *cough* quality online retailer outlet.
You wont regret it..

I have the thing of disc, but haven't partaken of this gem yet. Oh, looks really dreadful, in a comic sort of way... -Paula

It may not blow your mind but it will breathe on it pretty heavily.

It's an interesting watch nevertheless.

Hey, Gareth's in it. 'nuff said. But looking forward to watching it, tongue firmly in cheek there. Actually, I've seen it once years ago and all I can remember is the white streak in the men's hair and the inappropriate nature of the alien's costumes (by that I mean not suited to the purpose of space travel, etc) ... and Gareth and co running away from some women. -Paula

Not just Gareth, but also Ensor, Soldeed and the guy who poses as Cancer in Assassin!

Its sheer class!

Watch it, you won't regret it. It's a brilliant mix of (mostly) intentional comedy, insane costumes, terrible production values and weird direction.

We spent New Year with some old friends who are B7 fans, so we brought it along for something silly to watch. There are 13 half-hour episodes, and we ended up watching 11 of them over a couple of days. Their 15 and 18 year-old sons were loving it too!

Thanks to President Solvite, Angry Angel, a glass of beer and a lucky score on ebay we have seen it.

Karyn and I are still in therapy! Oops

Star Maidens is strangely addictive

I've seen it in both English and German audio... and I think I prefer the latter (except for Gareth's dialogue, which I prefer in English).

Well I watched it; one episode in particular had a robot thing menacing the Earth woman...I think it was written by Terry Nation, that episode but I could be wrong. Also: uhm, did this thread say that Star Maidens is better than Blake's 7? It might be fun, it might be so bad it's funny but it is NOT better than Blake's 7. Few shows are.
 
Angry Angel
Terry Nation never wrote for the show. Among the writers were Eric Paice, who also wrote for The Avengers, as did John Lucarotti, who, along with Ian Stuart Black also wrote for Doctor Who.

The title of this thread is definitely a bit tongue in cheek!

Awesome news, many more can now partake in the wonder of that which is STAR MAIDENS, Karyn and I will save you a seat in the therapy suite where we still reside to this day after watching it! Shock

OMG! My sister's husband lent me this bonkers show (he has a library of old, great and ridiculous science fiction shows) because of Gareth Thomas, and I have to admit that I was actually entertained and puzzled at the same time. But I watched the entire series, testing my stamina.

Favorite moment: The little girl finding two alien men stealing fruit and proclaiming,"I'm going to tell my mother!"
The look of sheer terror on the mens' faces: "OH NO!" -- and they run for their lives.

This is why we bought a region free DVD player.
