Lift Off!

Someone has just posted a clip from Lift Off with Ayshea - unseen for 45 years! Tragically - criminally - every episode of the series was lost when the original tapes were wiped! Now, thanks to...

That's what is says on the renewal form, yes. Be interesting to see how they fill it, as the others have all been between 64 and 72 pages.

In some ways I think that Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons might have benefited from being made AFTER Joe 90. The latter is a much smoother and more consistent series in some ways and the...

Captain Scarlet and New CS

I've just started to have a little re-watch of my CS blu-rays and last night watched one of my least favourite eps - Point 783. It seems ludicrous that the Mysterons go to all that trouble of...

You wonder what TBAG would have been like had Gerry been involved. Just two points to make here:
1) Gerry was NOT involved, so why speculate?
