Used to get creeped out by the close ups of actual human hands turning dials etc.

You also need to do Space Precinct:

My memory of this is tainted by the fact a kid in it had the same IKEA bed sheets as me. Have IKEA in space do they? Load of shite, ruined the illusion.

There’s an opening scene in a thunderbirds episode with a huge army tank thing that walks like a lizard with long legs through the jungle, think it then falls down a hole.

It’s great

I think I’d actually just rank them in order of their numbers. That poor schumck stuck up in space (Gordon? Alan?)

Used to hate them all, so boring and unpleasant looking.

That Blue Peter thing where there was overwhelming demand for Anthea Turner’s instructions for making a model of Tracy Island from loo rolls is a bit from another era, isn’t it.

Liked the Busted version of the theme song though.

Liked how they made the unpopular brother sit on his own in space listening to a radio while they lived it up on a tropical island and flying crazy machines.

What were the names of the Angels in Captain Scarlet? Harmony, Rhapsody, Melody, Symphony (?)… and another one?

So futuristic…

“Go ahead John”

Still answer the phone this way when my mate John phones. Need to get a way for his picture to come up on my phone with flashing eyes at the same time.

Well fancied Destiny

Blue Peter brought out a VHS of that it was so popular

Destiny! That was it. Pretty shit that they couldn’t come up with a fifth musical name though. Volume, or something. I dunno.
