Agreed. If this new version has any pretention about really basing itself on Space1999, it should have the philosophical element intact. That's one of the key elements that made the series what it was - the writing had a specific point of view. The eye candy (Eagles etc) was impressive but in terms of the identity of the series, secondary (only just!). Now, that pholosophical tone may not have been to the taste of the majority at the time or even now but that is the heart of the format. If the producers don't incude that, I wonder whether they should perhaps revive something else?

Just me being pessimistic!
