Space Battleship Yamato/Star Blazers passed me by at the time but the clip looks brilliant. Animation reminds me of the much earlier Ulysses 31 which I loved.

Oh yes, Ulysses 31 is lots of fun. My hubby introduced me to that!


I'm now humming the theme tune...and the script, 'Oh No, not my NO NO!' on a par with the brilliant line from one of the early Lost in Space episodes 'OH, Don's gone John!' spoken by Mrs Robinson.

That's wonderful! I've not seen/heard those before.

These clips are from the remake. In 2013, they remade the first season (the Iscandar story arc) as Space Battleship Yamato 2199. The episodes were first released in cinemas (in blocks of several episodes) in Japan, and the Japanese streamed to the cinemas and were over the moon. Last year, the second season (the Comet Empire) followed as Space Battleship Yamato 2202. Over here, they started to sell the DVDs of the first season last year. However, a price of 200 for 26 episodes of 25 min each (exactly the run time of one B7 season) is simply insane.


By the way, have you seen the live-action version? While the first half was highly entertaining, I think they completely lost the plot after they arrived at Iscandar.

I haven't seen it - is it worth tracking down?

No need to track it down - it is here. It's quite a mixed bag. In parts, they payed very much attention to detail, and some of the changes they made are actually very good (the new and very tragic background story of Kodai/Wildstar and Shima/Venture, for example). Other changes are best forgotten. And the final 50 minutes are a complete mess.

But I think I now have to track down Ulysses 31 ... looks highly interesting!

Just watched The Interrogation/ The Champions. Excellent episode, very intense and gripping but I have one question: what happened to Craig's super communication skills which would have let Richard and Sharron know he was in trouble?

Finished the fourth series of The Two Ronnies and this was where they started to hit their stride. Many genuine laugh out loud sketches and news items.

Certain ones stick in my mind like "Swedish Made Simple" (L.O. & F.U.N.E.X) and the Plumstead Ladies Male Vocal Choir

sparepart, presumably the interrogation drugs interfered with his telepathic ability to begin with, and also impeded their ability to home in on him. And when they do find him, they want to help but can't -in the end as Richard said, to help him would have been to reveal something of their special powers, something the Interrogation was designed to discover -remember he sees them in the outer office, and then speaks to Richard at the end. He had to get out himself, by conventional means. The Interrogator had discovered enough anomalies to make him want to continue the investigation, but Tremayne puts the kybosh on that. He knows ultimately that he would be destroying an invaluable asset.

I was not sure at first that I agreed about the drugs interfering but on second thoughts it does make sense. Doesn't the mystic man on the mountain say that they will discover their limitations for themselves and that they are not infallible? But he was a bit naughty being mean to Richard...but then again he had just had a black day at bad rock.
Incidentally did you see the size of Craig's feet!? They are a Champion all on their own!

Just watched Shadow of The Panther with Donald Sutherland...just love Sharron's crocheted dress! They were all the rage back then. I'm sure I had a waistcoat, along the same lines, (to go over my Hot Pants outfit from C & A Modes!)

With regards to The Interrogation, I'm sure they had a similiar story in the Man From Uncle.
Now as to feet...I'll have to watch that again with a tape measure in hand!!!!

It's because Gene Barry is it that I haven't watched it! He was awful in War of the Worlds, terrible in Burke's Law and Amos Burke Secret Agent.
I even cringed when he turned up in the Columbo pilot. Only Peter Falk made that bearable.

Oh I don't mind him in War of the Worlds. That said I have read that he has a bad rep with his co stars. It happens.

Continuing my watch through of Inspector Morse. A very leisurely rewatch in keeping with the pace of the series. Great acting talent in each one and I have been a admirer of John Thaw since his Sweeney days. Classic.

Dare I say...another one I end up blubbing over! Did you seethe film with Thaw as Sir Francis Drake opposite Paul Darrow as the friend he is forced to execute for mutiny. The scene as they said goodbye...fantastic! And I cried at that too....
