Default my homework?

Hi all,
to prepare for the coming celebration, I decided to try to watch at least x1 of each show I have on dvd- the list so far is as follows-
FOUR FEATHER FALLS- FIRST TRAIN THROUGH-trains, shoot outs and songs, this show is a real gem!
SUPERCAR- RESCUE- the first episode, a little slow, but seeing Supercar, as if for the first time, is great
FIREBALL XL5- SPACE CITY SPECIAL-fantastic!Regular villians get their just deserts [again], and the cast bangs out the theme tune!
STINGRAY-THE MASTER PLAN-after reading about this in FAB, it had to be this one!X2 Zero gets a smack on the head....justified!
THUNDERBIRDS- THE MAN FROM M.I.5- one of my favourites-Carl, hes SOOOO bad!
CAPTAIN SCARLET-CODENAME EUROPA-love the villian/victim, and the great P.O.V shots at the end.
JOE 90- TALKDOWN- the show is the pinacle of Supermarionation, and I love the idea of a brain implant causing the trouble.
SECRET SERVICE- MORE HASTE, LESS SPEED - a manchester accent- and lovely comedic charactors, bless!
U.F.O.-MINDBENDER-"sheep, the lot of ya, blah, blahnm, BLARRHHRRRR! "
SPACE 1999-DRAGONS DOMAIN-I cannot get tired of this, moving story, and its SCARY monster.
SPACE 1999- SEED OF DESTRUCTION-an overlooked episode, that turns many of the ideas and situations from season one on their head.Only hampered by Mr Landaus "passionate" performance as the mirror Commander.
TERRAHAWKS- CRY UFO-STEW DAPPLES, comedy king- nuff said!
SPACE PRECINCT- TIME TO KILL-cyborgs, time travel, and everybody dies.The shot of Tookie , dead in the hospital bed, is still shocking!
NEW CAPTAIN SCARLET- CIRCLES OF DOOM Captain-Black, amazing aerial shots, and a Lancaster bomber,... perfect!
Thats it up to today, hope to squeeze in the great Anderdocumentaries, and " Into infinity", [I recently watched Doppelganger, so I am covered for that].
How about you guys and gals, anyone else been cramming?
See you down there!

Space City Special is my favourite XL5 episode, reminds me of the later Stingray episodes.

For home work I've been watching episodes for the location tour:-

Secret Service

Joe 90 - Unorthodox Shepherd (include extra photos on the DVD)

UFO - The Square Triangle - great play out at the end in the Churchyard.

I have also been working on some background music to play during the meal - which is music from the shows without the obvious main themes. This has meant I have to go pretty rapidly (tough life really) through the CD releases. Currently enjoying the SHEF March from Captain Scarlet and the much under rated - Porto Guavan from Joe90. Is it better than San Martino from Thunderbirds? Perhaps not but close.

I might post the play list later which will on shuffle at the event and is currently over 3 hours.
