How about Kinvig which glamourized the role of a TV repair man by making the focus of a woman from Venus. And how many of us were entranced by the lovely Joanna Lumley in Sapphire and Steele? Jon

Thanks for dragging up some wonderful memories! My father an I watched almost all of this stuff - on of our many shared pleasures. Being a Brit, I especially remember Logan's Run, UFO, Space:1999 and Blake's Seven. A piece of trivia for you...if you look very carefully at the picture here (http://starringthecomputer.com/computer.php?c=209) you'll see an Acorn System One playing the part of a computer in an episode of Blake's Seven. This was Acorns first venture into "personal computing". That venture ended with the Archimedes and the invention of what became the ARM architecture. Chris

I was in college when I saw "Logan's Run". What I remember is the whole audience (all college students) booing when Michael York wimped out and decided not to remove his wet pants (Jenny Agutter was totally nude).

It gets good reviews on Amazon, but it's out of print and a new copy costs $80+ ... I wonder if it's available on iTunes?

Surprised no-one has mentioned "Quark" with Richard Benjamin, and the Barnestable "twins", or would that be "quartets". Predated "Red-Dwarf".

I never even heard about Destination Moon -- it sounds like I would have loved to have seen it when I was a kid...

It doesn't seem all that long ago when I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young engineer. Now I feel like an old fool, but where are we going to find one at this time of the day (LOL)?
