SPACE: 1999

Watching ‘Space: 1999’ while I work. Interesting, seeing it without 1970s TV transmission shadows and low-resolution TV of the time. Since it was shot on film and not 1970s video-tape, the images are crystal clear.

Many of the special effects leads were pulled away to work on the first two ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Alien‘ films. The show was actually in production long before ‘Star Wars’, but didn’t air until around the time of the movie. Originally, the concept of ‘Space: 1999’ was a direct third-season shake-up of ‘UFO’, but that show was abruptly cancelled.
