Yes, I never got to see much Space 1999. My folks weren't sci-fi freaks like me so I had to be satisfied with saturday morning presentations of Star Trek TAS, Dr. Who and if I was lucky a Godzilla movie on "Creature Features". After school it was waiting for Mom's soaps to end so I could catch Speed Racer and Starblazers if I was lucky. Then Star Wars came out and my folks realized they had a sci-fi geek on their hands and had no choice. At least I wasn't on drugs. lol
With the advent of the video boom I got to see alot of the shows I missed. UFO... who can't love those girls with the purple hair? Gerry Anderson is a model making genius.
