My Dad and I used to have a whole ritual over watching Space-1999. We'd get rid of Mom and eat a whole bunch of chips and candy. Then we'd sing "You're so Bain" the first time Barbara Bain came on the screen. I'd kind of forgotten all about that! Thank you for stirring up those memories!
I still get creeped out when I think about that alien that sucked everyone up like a giant vacuum cleaner. Icky.
