UFO!

Gerry Anderson’s television series UFO was a landmark in sci-fi history because it helped to make the concept of alien visitations, and covert space wars, into the world consciousness. The aliens were the baddies as in all space operas, but Anderson threw in alot of the elements (probing, testing, organ harvesting, implants, etc.) that people who have had alien visitations and abductions suffered. Thus was the reason to go to war against them.

So this is to all you UFO fans out there (and you know who you are, myself included). Plus there’s a little ‘eye candy’ to you old guys out there who were teen-age boys during this era. *sigh* To quote a commenter on YouTube; ” …a time when men were men, and women were gorgeous!”

  1. To this day, I’m still baffled by the purple hair! 😎

  2. I’ll have to check back later on those vids, Dad. YouTube must be on the rag, or something… can’t see any embedded vids at all, anywhere! My site’s fucked, as well.

    I do remember the series, though… and the gals! They weren’t tight-legged feminists, either!

    Hubba hubba!

    😉

  3. Oh yeah… that’s better! Here’s some info on Lt. Ellis (Gabrielle Drake) for you…

    The Anderson series was the most sophisticated use of Supermarionation and real human actors to date. There were earlier attempts at it, but were mainly reserved for close-up shots, like hands and feet, etc.

    Very good effects.

    ALL of them!

    😉

  4. Yeah, the embedding format went on the blink for a while, but now it’s back.

    I’ve just been watching old Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea shows, here’s the link: http://www.veoh.com/videos/v1687138Ba6c4t6F

    Ahh, nothing like the classics on a Sunday evening! 😎

  5. Great blog! I love deep thinkers and UFO stuff! Not certain what to think thou??!
    As a note, check out this blog: http://blogrdie.wordpress.com (not my blog – just found it thru another post) What is the WORLD is this blog all about? Armageddon,(the end of the world), Religions, UFO.s, time Travel, etc… Someone may be smoking something, but it is worth a read! Again good content!
