    One of my favorite Space: 1999 episodes is 'Troubled Spirit'. It includes musician Big Jim Sullivan playing a Coral electric sitar/guitar in one of those Moonbase polyester suits (he said he hated it).

      Used t love Space 1999, the two episodes that stick mostly in my mind were the ones where a rescue team had supposedly arrived to everyone's joy but they appeared to Koening in their real monstrous form.

      The other one is when there is some sort of monster that had infiltrated the base that appears unstoppable.

      Can't remember the episode names.

        I guess one reason its slagged of is perhaps because how of how it looks visually graphically but then one must remember its over 40 yrs old.
        In terms of atmosphere its terrific

        I used to love s99 but when you see reveiws of it now it is largely slagged off. I used to have all the dinky toy eagle space craft.

          I remember in the mid-'70s, even on a B&W television, this was 'the future'. Each new episode listed was an exciting wait. Looking back later I could see various flaws of course, some weaker and even silly stories. Series two was particularly formulaic and lacking ideas for a lot of it, but I liked those uniforms better than the earlier one-piece zippers affairs. The premise from the start was very unlikely, the moon travelling off from Earth orbit out into deep space and crossing paths with soooo many aliens. Might've helped a slight bit if they had some way of controlling their journey, but then they'd probably just return to earth right? By series two they had gone through so many eagles too you had to wonder how they replaced them so fast, and the new Moonbase staff who kept turning up to take the place of those we never saw again.

            I use to enjoy the show. More for the fact that I was in to Astronomy and Physics.
            I think the programme was aired on a Saturday morning, which seems unusual.
