Space: 1999 - Episode by Episode
Space: 1999 - Episode by Episode | Petter Ogland
2 posts
Gerry Anderson's SPACE 1999 was a remarkable television series in several ways. Not only was it a benchmark in terms of special effects and grand visual style inspired by Kubrick's 2001, it was also a psychological and philosophical drama that tapped deep into many of the major social and political concerns of the early 1970s. In 1997-98 the Online Alpha community arranged a systematic discussion of all the 48 episodes on a week by week basis, debating and reflecting on the series from a 20 year retrospective view. As the series is now celebrating a 40 year anniversary, a paperback version of this discussion has been made available. The book is edited and introduced by Petter Ogland, and contains a foreword by Henry Keazor. Not only is the 1997-98 discussion insightful from a present perspective, it also offers ideas for further exploration and debate. In this respect SPACE 1999 has stood the test of time as one of the most interesting television series ever made.

One of my favourite sci-fi programmes when I was a child, Space 1999 had a character called Maya who could morph into any other life form. As a youngster I really wanted to be Maya. (I also wanted to be The Bionic Woman, Wonder Woman, Bat Woman, a Charlie's Angel....😂)#90sInJuly #AliensExist
