Default Favorite Episode(s)

For me, it's "Breakaway" and "Black Sun". I like the scene in "Black Sun" where John and Victor are sitting in Main Mission. Victor pulls out a cigar and is about to light up when John gets on his case about smoking. They proceed to basically get bombed on brandy. If I were in that situation I'd probably wouldn't want to be sober either. Outside of that, there was a message in that episode.

Too bad there wasn't a scene from Black Sun that had both Victor and John smashed out of their skulls. Slurring, the main mission desks victim of cigar burns, the vomit in the corner of John's office.

Umm, I think that scene was cut. Guardian of Piri was close.

The AB Chrysalis.

Ina Skriver , the blond or the 'A' girl. Votes in favour of Alpha and has that nice girl beauty about her. A smiley kind of face.

But Sarah Douglas, the brunette or 'B'. Yum. Votes against Alpha and comes across as moody and a bad girl. I like bad girls. Screw Alpha, I'm staying until I manage to pull 'B', chlorine atmosphere or not.

Brandy and cigars in Main Mission, have they not heard of Health and Safety? Straker's lot were even worse, most of SHADO were womanising chain-smoking alcoholics. These days they'd be forced to step outside Moonbase and have a fag outside huddled in a shelter.

To me it's got to be "Dragon's Domain". It certainly reminds me of an ex-girlfriend. Mind you, she didn't chew up and eat Michael Sheard, that would have been a good pub tale.

Breakaway, Space Brain, Black Sun, End of Eternity, Earth bound, Voyager's return, and the list goes on.

"I gotta jump in the moon buggy and have a smoke. Care to join me, John?"

"Sure, Victor. I gotta pick up some Old Crow Whiskey from the AplhaMart"...

Break Away and Last Sunset. I admired the "color" of the moonscape, Eagles, Alpha with the help of sun light.

The only thing I don't like about this one is the lousy Moses impression. I love seeing the moon in day light.

And yes, Dragon's domain. Particularly the eagle work, podless, bodyless, plus the closeups of the Ultraprobe.

I can forgive the moses impression since he was high. I've been around enough hippies on LSD to know what it's like...and they can get like that. I'd bet the writers were annoyed at one point at a party by some guy on acid trying to share his visions...

Default Rules of Luton

I've been working my way sequentially through the Megaset DVDs. Last night I watched "Rules of Luton" while exercising on my Elliptical trainer. It's a good way to use the time while exercising.
Actually it wasn't so bad an episode but I couldn't help thinking it was a blatant rip-off of "Arena" from Star Trek TOS.
Also, why couldn't Maya just expand back through that flimsy cage?

Not one of my favorites. I keep "Breakaway" and "Another Time,Another Place" on my I-Pod. When I am exercising I can watch it

1) War games is one of the best episodes ever made.
2) force of life with Ian McShane.
3) Dragon's Domain- The episode still works until this day. The monster is still scarier than most modern creature in sci fi.
4) The bringers of wonder- The only two part episode of the second season.
5)Death's other Domain- I liked the ice planet. It reminds me of a similar planet in a two part episode of the original Battlestar Galactica titled The Gun on Ice Planet Zero.
