Space 1999

Originally aired in 1975, Space 1999 was one of my favourite TV shows when I was a kid. I have no idea what the appeal was for me. The silly story lines, the horrible method acting, the cheesy soundtrack and effects. One thing is certain: Those Eagle ships were cool AF!

What did the crew eat up there anyway? I don't think there are any scenes showing anyone ingesting anything.

I was a bit disappointed (and relieved) as 1999 came and went without the slightest hint of lunar natural disaster. Why the heck would anyone want to bury nuclear waste from earth on the moon anyway? It would cost a lot less to just aim it at the sun, wouldn't it? No Moonbase Alpha required.

I've found the entire series uploaded to YouTube, and I'm binge watching all of the episodes until they get taken down and removed.
