Yeah, Space: 1999 did seem like it was acid-trippin' a lot in hindsight. The concept seemed cool when I was a kid, but I later realized how outlandish it was--the Moon being blasted out of Earth orbit from its dark side (without blowing apart or hitting Earth) and falling through a conveniently placed nearby wormhole into the deepest regions of space.

But as a kid, it was more about the cool visuals to me, which I think still hold up pretty well today. Visually, I think it was more akin to 2001: A Space Odyssey in the sense that the ships and other models were pretty realistic-looking...

I'd LOVE to get Six Million Dollar Man on DVD in this country (US)!! I still rember my Steve Austin doll!!
