A: TELEVISION: 16

A for Andromeda, BBC, 1961 "Species" was blatantly ripped-off from this reasonably faithful series adaptation of the Sir Fred Hoyle novel of this name. A radio message from the Andromeda galaxy, over a million light years away, is picked up by a radio telescope, and turns out to be the blueprints and assembly instructions for an alien supercomputer. When the supercomputer is turned on, it builds a beautiful woman, whose mind is partly alien. There was a 1962 sequel, about a second Andromeda computer being assembled in South America, with pretty much the same production team, but with Susan Hampshire replacing Julie Christie. The sequel series' title was "The Andromeda Breakthrough." ??? -- Peter Halliday ??? -- Mary Morris ??? -- Esmond Knight ??? -- Frank Windsor
ALIENS on-line book of the year: Me Human, You Alien: How to Talk to an Extraterrestrial Alien Girl -- Julie Christie Producer -- Michael Hayes and Norman Jones Writers -- Fred Hoyle and John Elliott The Accuser, 2000 The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr., Fox, 1993-1994 The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. Rutgers' FTP Episode Guide The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. @ avimall.com The most recent cross-over Western/Fantasy series. The Adventures of Fu Manchu, Syndicated, 1955-1956, 39 episodes Attention conspiracy buffs: the hero of this show was the villain, a Macao-based scientist whose attacks on the West included germ warfare, smuggling, turning agents into double-agents, undercutting peace conferences, and eroding the U.S. currency. Explains a lot of recent history, doesn't it? Fortunately, the forces of democracy were saved again and again by Sir Dennis Nayland-Smith of Scotland Yard, Fu Manchu's nemesis for generations. Based on Sax Rohmer's fictional creations of 1908-1910, there is a politically incorrect tinge of "yellow peril" racism in these episodes today, which was also common in the Australian science fiction of its day. Silent movies, and then sound movies of 1930-1950 preceded this show, as did the radio serial which began in 1929 -- was it just a coincidence that the Stock market then crashed? A TV pilot starring Sir Cedric Hardwicke was produced in 1952, but was not picked up for either network or syndication. In 1955 Sax Rohmer sold his media rights to Republic Pictures for million, out of which the TV pilot was made which resulted in this series. Christopher Lee starred in several British films of the 1960s, and a feature film of 1980 starred Peter Sellers -- the last film completed before his untimely death.

The 1978 production of "The Next Step Beyond" had the same host, 19-21 years older, was shot in color, and never caught on in the ratings, perhaps because the old subversive creepiness was gone.

ALF @ avimall.com What if an alien landed on Earth, and was sucked into a sitcom? ALF ("Alien Life Form"), a 229-year-old furball with attitude, escaped the explosive destruction of his home planet Melmac (as did Kal-El escape the explosion of Krypton to become Superman). ALF crashed into the Tanner's garage, and became part of their family. ALF disrupted their banal suburban lifestyle, and made acidic comments about humanity and the American life style, as "3rd Rock from the Sun." would, a decade later. Next-door neighbors, the Ochmoneks, never figured out what was going on, a sitcom formula perfected in "Bewitched." Trivia questions and answers: How long did ALF attend Melmac High School? 122 years. What did ALF major in at Melmac High School? Software. What sports did ALF participate in at Melmac High School? He was co-captain of the Boullabaiseball team. What jobs did ALF have at one time or another? Assistant Boxleitner, male model, phlegm dealer. What are ALF's hobbies? Gerrymandering, snacking on cats. What is ALF's height? "Fluctuates with weight." What is ALF's weight? "Till the Sun Shines Nellie."

Early in the 22nd century, humans became bored with "artificial entertainment," and demanded a more deeply satisfying "organic level." Hence, intergalactic zoos became the new fad. Zoos competed to exhibit the rarest and weirdest alien creature. The #1 zoo was "The IZI", headed by Dr. Wilson Theroue, who depended on head tracker, Bjorn Straak, also known as "The Alien Hunter"...

As is often the case with these hybrids, 'All Souls' doesn't quite work as either a medical drama or a supernatural thriller, but the mix offers intriguing possibilities and may attract a loyal (though probably small) following. Two members of the cast stand out: Irma P. Hall lends strength and substance to whatever scene she's in and one hopes to see her role expanded in future episodes, and Grayson McCouch -- the bright spot in the short-lived 'Legacy' series -- makes an attractive and appealing hero, especially when the writers strive for an 'A' in Anatomy by contriving scenes which allow him to take his shirt off."

The Amazing Spider-Man, CBS, 1978 Based on Stan Lee's creation at Marvel Comics, this show revolved around Peter Parker, nerdy and alienated science major in college who made a few bucks as part-time news photographer for the Daily Bugle. When bitten by a radioactive spider, he developed super-powers, including a sense of danger and great strength and the ability to climb walls and ceilings. He invented super-gadgets, such as his web-shooter in wrist-bands, and a costume, to fight evil. But his life as a teenager became even more uncomfortable and confusing. The adolescent angst added a note of emotional realism to an otherwise formulaic story, and made this show a cult-classic among disaffected science majors. Was Bill Gates ever bitten by a radioactive spider? Peter Parker/Spiderman -- Nicholas Hammond Capt.

I flew to Scottsdale, Arizona to negotiate the deal from the publisher (who greatly preferred Westerns, and had a priceless collection of Western art), at the time when the magazine was edited by an ex-restaurant menu designer, and laid out on a livingroom floor. There's a strange story of what happened next, which will eventually appear on the Magazine site of this domain. The point is, I approached one Venture Capital firm after another. I showed them copies of "Amazing Stories", my brilliant business plan, and then said that we could sell the rights to film and television for more than the purchase rights. At that point, inevitably, the money-men would day "why would anyone want to buy the title 'Amazing Stories' for movies or television? Get out of here!" Well, I was right, and they were wrong. They missed a chance to do business with Steven Spielberg, who did buy that title...

Andromeda, a.k.a. "Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda" (Syndicated, 2000); Canada / USA; ??? 60-minute episodes; Executive Producers: Majel Barrett (2000-2001) (credited as Majel Roddenberry), Allan Eastman, Jay Firestone, Adam Haight, Kevin Sorbo; Co-Executive Producer: Robert Hewitt Wolfe (2000-2001) ; Producers: Keri Young, Kevin Sorbo; Directors: Allan Eastman, Allan Harmon, Allan Kroeker, George Mendeluk, Mike Rohl (as Michael Rohl), T.J. Scott, Brenton Spencer, David Warry-Smith, David Winning (episodes "The Banks of The Lethe", "The Pearls That Were His Eyes", "The Sum of Its Parts", "A Heart For Falsehood Framed", "Last Call at the Broken Hammer"); Developed By: Robert Hewitt Wolfe; Writers: Steven Barnes (episode 1.16 "The Sum Of It's Parts"), others; Tagline: Worlds Apart from the Rest; Plot Summary: Captain Dylan Hunt commands the sentient Andromeda Ascendant starship, which is part of the military muscle of multi-galaxy utopian All-Systems Commonwealth monarchy. That Commonwealth is a blend of the Federation (as Roddenberry invented for "Star Trek") without the depth of Ken McLeod's Communist utopian Solar Union ("Cassini Division" is its elite military force), or Iain Banks' Anarcho-socialist Culture novels ("Consider Phlebas", "The Player of Games", "Use of Weapons", "Excession") or the very Capitalist Qeng Ho interstellar trading fleet in Vernor Vinge's novels ("A Fire Upon the Deep", "A Deepness in the Sky"). That is, in my opinion, "Andromeda" is Space Opera without the deep politics of literary science fiction, or the exuberent fun of, say, "5th Element." The Nietzcheans back-stab the Commonwealth, Hunt has little choice but to order his crew to abandon ship, and fling Andromeda Ascendant into a black hole. Three centuries later, the passing salvage ship Eureka Maru drags the ship out of the frozen time near the black hole. To Hunt's horror, the All-Systems Commonwealth is virtually forgotten, and the Three Galaxies have sunken to barbarianism (as ripped off from Isaac Asimov's "Foundation" novels). The rag-tag crew of salvage crew, alien Nietzchean mercenary, alien predator monk must, under the quixotic leadership of Captain Dylan Hunt, aboard the intelligent living spaceship (think HAL-9000 of Clarke & Kubrik's "2001" crossed with Sci-Fi Channel's "Lexx") to re-establish the Commonwealth and restore the glory of civilization (as in David Brin's self-indulgently filmed "The Postman" with its Re-United States of America." So, in summary, Gene Roddenberry was a TV genius, but Star Trek was his real hit. "Andromeda" is utterly derivative, and so stupid that I could never sit through any full episode. Almost as stupid as "Star Wars", politically speaking, but without the cool special effects. So shoot me.

Automan, ABC, 15 Dec 1983-2 Apr 1984 A nerdy police computer specialist works on programming computer games in his spare time. One of his creations, a superhero named "Automan", somehow jumped out of the computer into reality, launching the nebbish protagonist into fighting crime at the highest levels. Automan could walk through walls, and could make almost any computer do him favors, and could temporarily combine with Walter Nebicher into a schizoid human/superhero. Lights dimmed when Automan walked past -- because he drained energy from circuits nearby. When the city's electrical consumption went up at dawn, Automan faded away. The two were followed everywhere by Cursor, an animated, well, cursor, who could outline, animate, and create useful solid objects such as cars. Walter's boss, the crochety Captain Boyd, hated computers and software-hip people, so he could not be told about Automan. Neither could Walter's mentor, Lieutenant Curtis, who used Walters inexplicable successes to advance his own agenda.

Battlestar Galactica, ABC, 17 Sep 1978-17 Aug 1980; also as Galactica 1980, ABC, 1980 Battlestar Galactica Guide @ avimall.com Rutgers' FTP Episode Guide With a huge budget (for its day) of a megabuck per hour, and the biggest PR budget of its season, this show so thoroughly tried to rip off the "Star Wars" franchise that ABC was sued. Special effects -- lasers, spaceships, robots, etcetera -- for both stories were created by the brilliant John Dykstra. Set in "the 7th millennium" A.D., the mile-long Galactica was the only battlestar to survive attack by the deady Cylons and the turncoat Count Baltar, which nearly rendered human beings extinct. Galactica and its fleet of 220 more modestly-scaled spacecraft set out towards escape on a mythical planet -- called Earth. Lorne Greene (Actuality Specials, Bonanza, Code Red, Griff, Kraft Music Hall's "How the West Was Swung", Lorne Greene's New Wilderness, Philip Morris Playhouse, Roots, Star Stage) was the Moses-like Commander Adama, aided by his fighter-squadron leader son Apollo (whose brother was killed by Cylons in the establishing episode), pilot/playboy Starbuck (a name from "Moby Dick"), and a large cast. When the show returned after 11 years in hiatus, Lorne Greene was the only original cast member. They had reached Earth, somehow in roughly our present, still pursued by Cylons (a cross between Fred Saberhagen's "Beserkers" and Dr. Who's "Daleks"). Capt. Troy and Lt. Dillon went down to Earth to seek help from the Pacific Institute of Technology -- a parody of my alma mater, the California Institute of Technology -- to get ready for galactic war. United Broadcasting's rookie newswoman Jamie Hamilton sensed a story here. The plot was thickened by renegade Galactica councilman Xavier and sickened by 14-year-old genius Dr. Zee.

R. Martin brought it to life for adoring TV audiences. New York lawyer Catherine was brutalized by thugs and left to die in Central Park. She was saved by Vincent, a beast-man more sensitive than Alan Alda, with a leonine face and a da Vincian intelligence. Nursed to health in caves and tunnels beneath New York City, Catherine returned to the surface (like Proserpine returning from Hades) but she and Vincent had fallen in love. They remained connected by ESP, which was useful because her new position in the D.A,'s office put her in frequent danger. Edie did research for her; Father was a reclusive genius who had raised Vincent and was de facto king of the "Tunnel World"; Kipper and Mouse were two tunnel world people who reported to Father. This show had an amazingly literate take on good, evil, art, science, and society. George R. R. Martin has won major awards for his writing, and has edited a very successful series of collaborative novels about flawed superheroes in a complex alternate history. There are stories about his TV pitches and pilots which are astonishing, and we may tell some of them later on this web site... Asst.

Samantha was a beautiful witch who married mortal advertising executive Darrin in the establishing episode, and promised to abandon her nose-twitching magical powers. Her family never approved of the marriage or the non-magical lifestyle, including her father Maurice, mother Endora, prankster Uncle Arthur, and befuddled Aunt Clara, each and every one a warlock or witch. Other characters included fading witch/housekeeper Esmerelda, Darrin's boss Larry Tate (partner of Ad Agency McMann & Tate) and Larry's wife Louise, laid-back but suspecious neighbors the Kravitzes, Samantha's identical cousin Serena, and Samantha's first child Tabitha who was "born" on the high-ratings 13 Jan 1966 episode, followed by son Adam "born" 16 Oct 1969 but not a regular until 1971-72.

Genre: "Bambi's Children": animals who can think and talk Beyond Westworld, CBS, 5 March 1980-19 March 1980 In the 1973 feature film "Westworld" robots (including Yul Brynner), for no clear reason, killed guests and wrecked a future amusement park. Yul Brynner was the only cast member to reprise his role in the film's sequel, "Futureworld." These two films spun off the television series "Beyond Westworld" -- which was cancelled after a mere three low-rated episodes. "Westworld" was the future amusement park, owned and operated by "The Delos Corporation" -- which had the corporate culture that might result if Microsoft bought Disney and Boeing. Guests to the theme park interacted with robots which were virtually indistinguishable from humans, allowing the humans to live out their secret desires. C3P0 meets Fantasy Island. Mad scientist Simon Quaid (co-inventor with Joseph Oppenheimer of the robots) programmed the robots to take over the world, in a social-engineering scheme that few voters would approve. John Moore, as head of Delos Security, aided by love-interest Pamela Williams, were all that stood in the way of Quaid's megalomania. Killer theme parks were better done, later, by Crichton in "Jurassic Park", and even better in the "Dream Park" trilogy of novels by Steve Barnes and Larry Niven.

The Bionic Woman, ABC (Jan 76-May 77) then NBC (Sep 77-Sep 78), 14 Jan 1976-2 Sep 1978 The Bionic Woman @ scifi.com It all began with the novel "Cyborg" by Martin Caiden. "Cyborg" begat "The Six Million Dollar Man" which begat "The Bionic Woman." Jaime Sommers (The Bionic Woman) was originally a character in the television series "The Six Million Dollar Man." She was the fiancee of Steve Austin [see database entry for "The Six Million Dollar Man"], but they separated after Steve turned astronaut and Jaime completed her university education and hit the pro tennis circuit. When she had a near-fatal skydiving crash, the same doctors (including Dr. Rudy Wells) who made Steve Austin into a super-powerful "Cyborg" (CYbernetic ORGanism, half human, half machine) did the same for her. Steve did not know, however, as she began teaching students at an army base near her home town of Ojai, California. They led parallel lives, both participating in secret missions for OSI (Office of Scientific Information), and sometimes even worked together -- but as a side effect of her accident and/or coma, she did not remember him nor their romance. He hung out near her, in hopes of rekindling the torch, with him even living at her step-parents' (Elgins') ranch. Oscar Goldman was Jaime Sommers' manager at OSI. When the series moved to NBC, Jaime acquired a bionic dog, the German Shepard "Max." Again and again, in the final season, the enemy was not the usial spy, kidnapper, or drug-lord, but extraterrestrial beings from one part of the cosmos or another. The writers became confused about what sub-genre of science fiction they were supposed to be writing.

Blake's 7, BBC (aired in USA on KOCE), 1992-1993 Buck Rogers, ABC, 15 Apr 1950-30 Jan 1951 Buck Rogers Guide @ avimall.com A novel became a comic book, a Mutual Broadcasting System radio serial (1932-1936 and 1939-1947) and a film serial starring Buster Crabbe, and then, at last, a television show -- which itself was updated three decades later. Buck Rogers saved the universe over and over, using hardware standard in pulp-magazine space opera. His base was the world capital of Niagra, and his allies included the chaste-but-sexy Wilma, the Einsteinian Dr. Huer, and the courageous Martian Black Barney. An attempt to cash in on the success of "Captain Video", this juvenile television series was transmitted live. Due to budget limitations, although most of the action was set in the far future and referred to interplanetary adventure, most of the action was in the laboratory set, purportedly in a cave hidden behind Niagra Falls. Buck Rogers (1950) -- Kem Dibbs Buck Rogers (1950-51) -- Robert Pastene Wilma Deering -- Lou Prentis Dr. Huer -- Harry Sothern Black Barney -- Harry Kingston Producer -- Babette Henry Writer -- Gene Wyckoff Genre: Space Opera Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, NBC, 20 Sep 1979-16 Apr 1981 This major update of the 1950-51 TV series (see above) was a network attempt to cash in on the success of "Star Trek" and on the lesser success of "Battlestar Galactica" (itself ripped off from "Star Wars"), with some of the same campy attitude as the television "Batman." Six months before the television premier, the pilot was released under the same title on the big screen. Captain Buck Rogers, astronaut, was in cryonic suspended animation aboard an interstellar spaceship from 1987 until 2491, accumulating 504 years of back pay plus interest, a matter which no lawyer ever addressed, suggesting that in some ways society really did progress. The deep-frozen Bucksicle was discovered by Draconians under the command of sexy-but-evil Princess Ardala and Killer Kane, who both assumed him to be a spy. Unfortunately, the Earth Defense Directorate (based in New Chicago) agreed with their assessment, albeit they did not approve of the Draconian's never-ending plans to conquer Earth. Buck was helped by chaste-but-sexy Wilma Deering, promoted since the old series into the more politically-correct Commander of Terrestrial Defenses. He also became buddies with Dr. Huer, a cross between Albert Einstein and Carl Sagan, who presented Buck with a robot named Twiki and a talking computer named Dr. Theopolis, who was often a necklace-like fashion accessory to Twiki. Although the Draconians were never able to take over our planet, the more powerful force of striking actors delayed the second season for several months. The new season shifted the venue from Earth to a huge starship "Searcher" to find humans who'd survived some vaguely referred-to "great holocaust." Admiral Asimov was purportedly a direct descendant of the great real-life author Isaac Asimov, who had long-since created "the Three Laws of Robotics" and the notion that dysfunctional robots might refused to believe that they were created by imperfect humans, a recurring sub-plot involving "Crichton" (a construct even more annoying than Twiki) who refused to acknowledge the "fatherhood" of Dr. Goodfellow. Hawk was also searching, for other members of his bird-man species. It is hard to say if the cocky attitude of the actors played against the big-budget special effects, or whether scripts that took the concepts more seriously might have deepened the show's impact.

Devlin (1981) -- Paul Carr Genre: Space Opera Bugs, BBC1 (Great Britain), 1995; __ 50-minute episodes; Production Company: Carnival Films; Distributor: BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation); Genre: Sci-Fi / Action / Crime; Plot Outline: Ed, Ros, Alex and Nick Beckett (a worker at a top secret Government intelligence agency called 'The Hive') form the high-tech crime fighting team that works for the mysterious, secretive Bureau 2 chief, Jan, and are only assigned the most difficult and dangerous cases. When Beckett uncovers a sinister plot by his employers, he is expelled (after being framed over the murder of an official) and joins the freelance investigative team Gizmos (run by Ros Henderson and her friend, Ed) to become the freelance outfit BUGS dedicated to solving high tech crimes and espionage. This real action series for the 90's was first class. Filled with explosions, fast cars and fancy equipment it was good to look at, while fast-moving story lines kept one on the edge of one's seat, to make Saturday night viewing on BBC1 fun again. It was pulled from the schedule, with 3 episodes from series 4 still to be shown.

Captain Future (Winter 1940-Spring 1944): Sascha Goto's website does not directly deal with the pulp magazine Captain Future. However, it deals with the animated series called Captain Future which is based on the pulp magazine. There will be more information on the pulp magazine as well in the near future. Captain Future This website has information in German and English on television, books, boardgames, cards, and Spanish versions of Captain Future spinoffs. Captain Midnight, syndicated, 1954 This show was also known as "Jet Jackson", in some broadcast areas, and the hero had one name or the other depending on location. This series started on radio in 1940, with its super-scientist fighting crime, and assisted by a clumsy assistant Ikky. According to e-mail Larry Becker "The Sid Melton character you refer to as "Ikky" was Ichabod Mudd. Sid's catchline in the series was to mention his name as, 'Mudd -- with two D's.' Olan Soule was the third principal character, a scientist named Aristotle Jones. The kids who watched the show could join the Secret Squadron (in fact, kid members, albeit actors, were sometimes featured in the show as a network of individuals helping Captain Midnight). Note that their code designations were SQ followed by a number. When the show first came on radio, they were SS something. With the advent of WWII and Hitler's SS, the designation was abruptly changed to SQ. Captain Midnight -- Richard Webb Ikky -- Sid Melton Aristotle Jones -- Olan Soule Captain Video and His Video Rangers, Dumont, 27 Jun 1949-1 Apr 1955 This was a historically significant show, despite the astonishingly stingy prop budget of per week. Why? Because it was the first and most successful of three children's science fiction shows that seduced kids into the axioms of the Space Opera genre, the other two being "Space Patrol" and "Tom Corbett--Space Cadet." It can be argued that this created some of the popular support that allowed for a genuine space program only a few years later. A wonderful book about these shows is "The Great Television Heroes" by Donald F. Glut and Jim Harmon. The government played no significant role in scientific genius Captain Video single-handedly saving the world out of a sense of civic duty. By so doing, he not only defeated evildoers such as Dr. Clysmok, Dahoumie, Heng Foo Seeng, Kul of Eos, Mook the Moon Man, and Nargola, but also had a chance to field-test his gadgets, including The Atomic Rifle, the Discatron, the Optical Scillometer, the Radio Scillograph, and the Cosmic Ray Vibrator (stop giggling, will you?). His most fiendish adversary was Dr. Pauli, who had his own set of super-duper hardware, including the Barrier of Silence (later parodied on "Get Smart"), the Cloak of Invisibility, and the Trisonic Compensator. The Dumont Network (whose demise alone could end this popular show) sold to their viewers such premiums as Decoder Rings, Space Helmets, and plastic copies of Captain Video's weaponry, almost all of which are highly collectable today. Late in its life, the show was retitled "The Secret Files of Captain Video" and they stopped editing in stock footage of Westerns through the money-saving "Remote Carrier Beam." Captain Video's spaceship was called the "Galaxy" -- and every child wished to be Captain Video's sidekick "The Ranger" and ride the Galaxy to exotic destinations, whether or not the instruments on the control panel were obviously painted on.

The Count taught European History at San Francisco's South Bay College (Evening Division). After all, he knew five centuries of History personally. He violated several ethical, legal, and theological standards by turning three of his students into vampires, namely Antoinette, Christine, and Darryl.

The ratings were low until episode #5 (writer Terry Nation) introduced the evil robotic Daleks, when suddenly the series became a hit with adults and children alike, and has continued to this day, albeit through five different stars and a pretty good feature film.

However, like most animes put on network television, it suffered from horrendous editing, dubbing, and rescoring over most of Yoko Kanno's excellent soundtrack. Also, it was put in the kid's timeslot, somewhere that even in it's toned-down state it didn't belong. Despite all this, "Escaflowne" managed to captivate a couple viewers even in this version. But the romance and epic nature of the story did not appeal to young children who were into "Digimon", so this show got the axe....: Escape From Jupiter, Australia ABC, 1994; 13 25-minute Episodes in Season 1, 1994; 13 25-minute Episodes in sequel, 1997; Production Companies: Film Australia, NHK Japan Broadcasting Corporation, ABC Creators: Martin Daley, David Ogilvy, John Patterson; Production Company: {to be done}; Distributor: {to be done} Executive Producers: Ron Saunders, Kagari Tajima; Directors: Kagari Tajima, Funitaka Tamura, Kate Woods; Writers: David Ogilvy, Ian Munro, John Patterson; Technical Credits: {to be done} Plot Summary: Perhaps loosely based on the classic Robert A.

Fantastic Journey, NBC, 3 Feb 1977-13 Apr 1977 Fantastic Journey Guide @ avimall.com Not to be confused with "Fantastic Voyage" (based on an Isaac Asimov novel), this TV series started with a university's research boat finding an unmapped island in the Bermuda Triangle. Unknown even to Gilligan, this island had a weird "time and space warp" which allowed the comingling of past, present, and future (somewhat as in Dr. Fred Hoyle's novel "October the First is Too Late"). Dr. Fred Walters went into the space-time warp, where he encountered four characters lost in time: Varian, a 23rd century telepath; Liana, from an ancient Atlantis; Scott, a contemporary boy with psychic powers; and Dr. Jonathan Willaway, an eccentric scientists from the 1960s who preferred the company of androids. There was a network of character conflicts between these five, and what promised to be a lengthy episodic search for the home space-and-time of each, complete with strange creatures and thrilling adventures, but the ratings also were becalmed in the Bermuda Triangle. Varian -- Jared Martin Dr. Fred Walters -- Carl Franklin Scott Jordan -- Ike Eisenmann Liana -- Katie Saylor Dr. Jonathan Willaway -- Roddy McDowell Story Editor -- Dorothy C. Fontana ("Star Trek") Far Out Space Nuts, animated Far Out Space Nuts @ west.net The Flash The Flash @ avimall.com Based on the classic comic book superhero. He was an attractive character to me because, unlike the over-powered under-achieving Superman, The Flash had a singe super-power -- namely the ability to move extremely rapidly, from which all secondary abilities were derived. This was loosely based on the H.G. Wells story "The New Accelerator." Flash Gordon, Syndicated, 1953-1954 (39 episodes) Alex Raymond created the comic strip in 1934, five years after "Buck Rogers." A year later, in 1935, "Flash Gordon" became a sucessful radio serial starring Gale Gordon, and then three film serials starring Buster Crabbe (1936-1940). Flash Gordon himself was a preppie blond polo-playing Yale graduate who accompanied Dale Arden and Dr. Zharkov to the planet Mongo, ruled by the evil Emperor Ming the Merciless. After they fought Ming to a standstill, they battled Bizdar, the Evil Queen of Cygnil, the Great God Em of Odin, the Mad Witch of Neptune, and anyone else who could throw together a modest collection of androids, monsters, and/or death rays. In 1979, NBC ran a Saturday morning animated series. The following year, a rather entertaining big-budget film lost a bundle, and the franchise has been in limbo ever since.

Confusingly enough, this television series has nothing whatsoever to do with the feature films of the same name. On TV, the story was that antiques dealer Lewis Vendredi (French for "friday") made a deal with the devil to earn a fortune my peddling antique doodads which would each carry a terrible curse. When Lewis Vendredi died -- presumably as a result of some fine print in his contract -- his innocent neice Micki inherited the store, and renamed it "Curious Goods." Assisted by her cousin Ryan and a retired magician, Jack Marshak, she tried to get the cursed antique thingamajiggies back from their purchasers, and sequester them in the basement where they could cause no more hideous deaths. My wife, who once ran a chain of antique stores in Europe, before she became a famous scientist and science fiction author, refuses to talk to me about this show. Maybe that's because of a certain contract signed in blood, nyaaa haaa haaaa... Micki Foster -- Robey Ryan Dallion -- John D.

Galactica 1980, see Battlestar Galactica Gargoyles, animated, to be done Gargoyles List @ avimall.com Gemini Man, NBC, 23 Sep 1976-28 Oct 1976 INTERSECT is another of those government anti-terror agencies and think-tank paid for by your taxes but far too secret to be covered by the press. INTERSECT agent Sam Casey was rendered invisible by radiation from an undersea explosion. But he could be temporarily visible again, thanks to Abby Lawrence's computer skills and Leonard Driscoll's management acumen, which yielded a wristwatch-gadget similar in effect to Bilbo Baggin's Ring, allowing a switch back and forth between visibility and invisibility, and in that over-use would be deadly (more than a quarter-hour out of any 24 hours, for Sam). Let me ask you this: did YOU ever see this show? I wonder why, hmmmm... Not really related to the 1958 British series, which was created and produced by Ralph Smart, starring Lisa Daniely and Deborah, with voice of Invisible Man by Tim Turner. Sam Casey -- Ben Murphy Leonard Driscoll -- William Sylvester Abby Lawrence -- Katherine Crawford Creators/Producers -- Harve Bennett and Steve Bochco Genesis II, CBS, 1973 Pilot for never-produced series by Gene Roddenberry ("Star Trek"). "The Sleeper Wakes" by H.G. Wells declined to "Buck Rogers" which declines further to this pilot, released as a TV movie. A 20th century man wakes up in 2133 and is drawn into a human counter-revolution against mutant oppressors. ??? -- Alex Cord Director -- John Llewellyn Moxey Creator/Writer -- Gene Roddenberry ("Star Trek") Ghost Story, NBC, 25 Sep 1972-22 Jun 1973 Not to be confused with the sitcom "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" (21 Sep 1968-18 Sep 1970) starring Hope Lange and Edward Mulhare, which was itself based on the 1947 film with Rex Harrison and Gene Tierny, this was an anthology show. At first, Sebastian Cabot would take us to "Essex House" and lull us into increasingly scary stories of the supernatural. Starting with the 5 January 1973 episode, NBC dropped Sebastian Cabot, retitled the show "Circle of Fear", and ran some episodes with no ghosts or vampires or witches at all. So it was strangled. host Sebastian Cabot (as "Winton Essex" in 1972) Genre: Horror The Girl From Tomorrow, Australia Channel 9, 1990; 24 30-minute episodes; Season 1 - 12 episodes (30 minutes); Season 2 - 12 episodes (30 minutes); Creators/Producers: {to be done}; Production Companies: Film Australia, Nine Network, and The Australian Film Finance Corporation Distributor: {to be done}; Executive Producer: Ron Saunders; Producer: Noel Price; Director: Kathy Mueller; Writers: Mark Shirrefs and John Thomson; Technical Credits: {to be done} Plot Summary: In the year 3000, teen-aged Alana finds herself trapped in 1990 with a criminal from the year 2500. Alone, and confused, she befriends a spirited girl named Jenny Kelly. Together they attempt to track down the time capsule which brought her there, while evading Silverthorn, the villain into whose hands it appears to have fallen.

Troubles in the year 2500, however, lead to Alana and her guardian, Tulista, returning to a devastated future. They must return to 2500 and change whatever it was that went wrong in order to cause The Great Disaster to reach Australia.

After that, a real Mr. Hinckley tried (30 Mar 1981) to assassinate President Reagan in order to impress actress Jodie Foster, so scripts involving protagonist Ralph Hinkley had to be rewritten to be named Ralph Hanley (or sometimes just "Mr.H"). Anyway, Los Angeles high school teacher Ralph had a Close Encounter of the Third Kind with extraterrestrials, who gave him a red flying suit, but the schlemiel lost the instruction book, and had frequent trouble mastering the art of flight and the other powers of the suit (invisibility, x-ray vision, telescopic vision, and the like). Nobody knew his secret, except Bill Maxwell, his lawyer Pam Davidson (I told you the lawyers were big in this show), his son Kevin, and four street-wise students escaped from the "Welcome Back Kotter" sort of series: Cyler, Rhonda, Rodriguez, and Tony, who were seen less and less often in the second season, when Ralph and Pam married (Kevin was from a previous marriage). This show had a wacky logic all its own, and was a good-natured spoof of the action superhero genre, which had been tried before about 15 years earlier in "Mr. Terrific" and in "Captain Nice." Ralph Hinkley (Hanley) -- William Katt Bill Maxwell -- Robert Culp (American Profile, The Chevy Mystery Show, I Spy, The Kaiser Aluminum Hour, Star Tonight, Trackdown) Pam Davidson -- Connie Sellecca (Beyond Westworld, Flying High, Hotel) Tony Villicana -- Michael Pare (Houston Knights) Rhonda Blake -- Faye Grant (V) Cyler Johnson -- Jesse D.

The Green Hornet, ABC, 9 Sep 1966-14 July 1967 Listed here because of comics and radio (1936) origin, created by George W. Trendle. Also, because it had the same production team as TV's "Batman." Few fans knew that George W. Trendle's first hit, "The Lone Ranger" actually introduced Britt Reid (The Green Hornet) as the son of Dan Reid, who in turn was the nephew of the Lone Ranger.

Afterwards, he would remember nothing of his adventures, making this something like a rationalization of alcoholic blackouts. Investigative reporter Jack McGee stuck to his trail as he searched for odd jobs and a chance to piece his psyche back together.

The eponymous George Jetson worked for Spacely Sprockets, Inc. in an alienating job (although he was occasionally promoted to Vice President, it never lasted) for an overbearing boss. He lived in Skypad Apartments, which had variable altitude achieved with hydraulic lifts, with his unambitious housewife Jane, their children, and the semi-talking dog Astro (who later had his own adventures with Scooby-Doo). Despite atomic flying cars, commuting, parking, and speeding tickets were a problem. Despite robots and automated household gadgets, home-making was a drag. Despite videophones, nobody had anything interesting to communicate, and despite interplanetary colonization, teenage girls still cared for nothing but media icons, dance crazes, and dating. The dark underside of suburban culture -- divorce, drugs, gangs, suicide, and political homogenization -- never appeared. The satire lacked the sharper edge of Mad Magazine, but sometimes the limits of Capitalism and Consumerism were skewered anyway.

A puppet-show set in a TV studio (self-referential and thus post-modernist) the curious janitor Ernest P. Duckweather messed with the control panel and accidently tapped into a TV show from an inhabited planet Jupiter. He thereafter conversed with puppets Johnny Jupiter and B-12, who were confused about life on Earth, as they had nothing but TV broadcasts to go on. Subsequently, Ernest P. Duckweather became a star of Jupiter TV, but he had nothing but their shows to show him their culture.

Land of the Giants, ABC, 22 Sep 1968-6 Sep 1970 Land of the Giants List @ avimall.com Land of the Giants by ftp Seven human astronauts on a short "strato-cruiser" spaceflight from America to London in roughly the year 1984 pass through a "space warp" and land in a very Earth-like world where everything is 12 times normal size, especially adults, children, pets, and bugs. Gilligan's Island meets "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids", but saved by taking itself seriously and creating a certain empathy for the people who just want to fix the spaceship and get home, including millionare engineer Mark Wilson, heiress Valerie Scott, and 12-year-old Barry. In the world of giants, Inspector Kobrick of S.I.B. was the security agent in charge of finding and re-finding the earthlings. Of course, this concept had been done with satiric glee two centuries earlier by Jonathan Swift. Starring: Pilot/Capt.

We already have sicko's on line trolling for children, and credit card data bases being hacked into for profit. how long until a geek shuts down an airplane in flight? more thought provoking than most realize..." Life Force, British, 2000; Global Warning, psychic children 2025 A.D.

It's set 25 years in the future when global warming has melted the polar ice caps, flooding the planet. Four children, Greg, Karen, Ashok and Mai Lai, have been left to fend for themselves. Because of their psychic powers they are pursued by Glemser, played by 'Band of Brothers' star Damian Lewis. Although the series will undoubtably crop up on 'Before they were famous' type shows in the future, Lewis does particularly well, adapting to the role of the bad guy in this low budget TV thriller. The wardrobe department should be thanked as the long black coat does a lot for him too! The series itself is much like the New Zealand/UK co-production "The Tribe". If had received better publicity when it was first shown it may have gained a similar cult status." Lights Out, NBC, 19 July 1949-29 Sep 1952 Spun off from the hit radio show which began in 1934, there were four television specials produced by Fred Coe (Goodyear TV Playhouse, Producer's Showcase, 1955 Emmy for Best Producer of a Live Series) in 1946, and then after three years of development hell, this fine suspense anthology. Each epsiode opened with an extreme close-up of a pair of eyes, cutting to a close-up of a bloody hand reaching for the light switch, and a voice-over of a chilling laugh and the catch-phrase "lights out, everybody!" Each episode was shot live. Some were adaptations of classic short stories, others were developed specially for this series. Narrator (1949-50) -- Jack LaRue Narrator (1950-52) -- Frank Gallop Musical Effects: Theremin -- Paul Lipman (1949) Organ (1949-52) -- Arlo Hults Harp (1950-52) -- Doris Johnson Began on radio (1934) and 4 specials (produced by Fred Coe) on TV (1946) Guest Stars: Boris Karloff, Eddie Albert, Billie Burke, Yvonne DeCarlo, Raymond Massey, Burgess Meredith, Leslie Nielsen, Basil Rathbone Logan's Run, CBS, 16 Sep 1977-16 Jan 1978 based on the novel by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson (author of many of the best episodes of the original Twilight Zone) and the feature film of the same title. A nuclear war had pretty much wiped out civilization, somewhere between the late 20th century and the year 2319. Survivors lived in cities out of touch with each other, each having evolved its own culture, and each surrounded by inhospitable desert. Logan lived in the sybaritic City of Domes, where nobody was allowed to live past his or her 30th birthday. Logan was a "Sandman" -- special policeman -- who betrayed his training by fleeing for his life as the big three-zero approached. He fled with a girl named Jessica and Rem, an android. He sought a fabled "Sanctuary" but was pursued by Francis, an unrepentant Sandman. This was unusually sophisticated fare for TV, both in the bleakness of the premise, the strangeness but self-consistency of the cities, and the horrors of the badlands. It was a landmark in the history of post-nuclear-holocaust fiction, the best recent example of which is "The Postman" by David Brin, which has been repeatedly optioned, was once to have been produced by Ron Howard and star Tom Hanks, but is now to be directed by and starring Kevin Costner and be released in 1997. Logan's Run Logan -- Gregory Harrison Jessica -- Heather Menzies Rem -- Donald Moffat Francis -- Randy Powell Producers -- Ben Roberts and Ivan Goff (the creators of "Charlie's Angels, who admitted knowing zero about science fiction) Story Editor -- Dorothy C. Fontana ("Star Trek") By the way, cult classic movie star/painter/author Mary Woronov (Eating Raoul) guest stars as "Irene" in the "Capture" episode of Logan's Run. Mary Woronov was my babysitter as a child, before she fell in with Andy Warhol and became a star of multiple media. So perhaps she is one more influence on me regarding fantasy and science fiction.

Well, two out of three ain't bad. A TV reporter in Albuquerque, David Rudy, is demoted by his boss-from-hell, after an absurd incident with a chimp. David is romantically involved with his boss' daughter, and avoids being fired by agreeing to host a juvenile puppet show. The show turns out to have puppets which are really extraterrestrials stuck on our planet. Alien puppets and TV is a mix tried twice that I can think of off-hand: Johnny Jupiter (1953) and ALF (1986-90), but it doesn't accomplish what either of those did, let alone the conceptually-related Mystery Science Theatre 3000. I'm trying to say something nice, but I can't come up with anything yet. Sorry. David Rudy -- Tim Conlon (Wild Oats) boss -- Paul Gleason boss' daughter -- Stacy Galina.

The Robinson family was en route to the Alpha Centauri solar system, 4.3 light years away, for a five-year mission, suggesting that the spaceship Jupiter II could go quite near the speed of light, by technologies never explained. Anyway, the evil-for-no-clear-motive Dr. Zachary Smith screwed up the controls, and tampered with the program of the robot (Robby) left over from the far-more-mature film Forbidden Planet. Or maybe Dr. Smith was some sort of foreign agent, trapped with his intended victims. Almost every episode had the same formula: land on another planet while trying to get home, encounter a monster, have Dr. Smith try to cut a deal with the monster that would send him alone back to Earth, have Robby the Robot say "Danger, Will Robinson", menace June Lockhart, and have Dr. Smith's fatal flaws of cowardice and greed foil his plot, leaving us at a cliff-hanger ending. This show seems to have been a favorite of some of my friends, but I found it deeply frustrating, as I kept hoping for something genuinely science fictional to happen, i.e. something with philosophical depth, but the show stayed relentlessly superficial even when a few lines of dialogue could have added profundity at no extra cost.

Man and the Challenge, NBC, 12 Sep 1959-3 Sep 1960 Listed here because it features a research scientist who tests the extremes of human and equipment capability for volunteers including astronauts. This falls within the definition of science fiction, in that it explicitly relates science and technology and their effect on human beings. The best episode had three people testing space suits by walking across Death Valley, where they have a deadly encounter with armed militia members who assume that they are alien invaders. Dr. Glenn Barton -- George Nader Producer -- Ivan Tors. The Man from Atlantis, NBC, 22 Sep 1977-25 July 1978 Faster than a plate of sushi, more powerful than Flipper, more mindless than "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea", look, down there under the ocean, swimming in a legs-together undulating dolphin parody, it's Patrick Duffy as ... The Man From Atlantis! With webs between his fingers and bright green eyes, he fights a never-ending battle for the United States Navy and the Foundation for Oceanic Research. Pass the tartar sauce! Mark Harris -- Patrick Duffy Dr. Elizabeth Merrill -- Belinda Montgomery C. W. Crawford -- Alan Fudge Mr. Schubert -- Victor Buono Brent -- Robert Lussier Jomo -- Richard Williams Chuey -- J. Victor Lopez Jane -- Jean Marie Hon Allen -- Anson Downes Creator/Producer -- Herb Solow. The Man from U.N.C.L.E., NBC, 22 Sep 1964-15 Jan 1968 The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Listed here because, in the James Bond tradition, it sometimes crossed the line from Spy story to Spy Spoof, to Science Fiction. In particular, the 1966-67 season had ever more absurd plots, with a comic-book flavor. The series became more realistic in 1967-68, but it was too late to stop the series from being replaced by the smash hit "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" -- or was that a final victory by THRUSH? U.N.C.L.E. = United Network Command for Law Enforcement.

The Man Who Used to Be Me, 2000 Maniac Mansion, Family Channel, 1990-1993, to be done Maniac Mansion Manimal, NBC, 30 Sep 1983-31 Dec 1983 Superhero/Fantasy/Police series in which Jonathan Chase has the hereditary ability to turn himself into any animal. Disguised as an upper-crust professor of "animal behavioral sciences" at New York University, he was an ally to the police and a terror to criminals. His secret identity was known only to African American assistant Ty Earle (an old Vietnam buddy) and sexy cop Brooke. The special effects of his transformations were good early television versions of the "morphing" technique, now so common.

Mann & Machine -- British, never broadcast in USA? M.A.N.T.I.S., Fox, 1994-1995 M.A.N.T.I.S. Guide @ avimall.com The first superhero/science fiction show starring an African-American, damaged by the network toning down the racial/civil rights subplots, but otherwise a promising series. Mashuranbo [anime], 2000 Max Headroom, ABC, 31 March 1987-16 Oct 1987 Max Headroom Max Headroom Guide @ avimall.com Rutgers' FTP Episode Guide Based on 1984 British TV movie starring Matt Frewer and produced by Peter Wagg, which spread like a computer virus to Cinemax distribution in the US, and then into Coca-Cola commercials. Premise: near-future muckraking Channel 23 reporter Edison Carter is decapitated in a car chase. He is the model for a computer-generated artificial intelligence created by Channel 23's research director Bryce. Max Headroom can pop up in any computer system or onto any network broadcast, while being monitored by Bryce's assistant Theora and newsroom director Murray, and sometimes by network head Mr.Cheviot. Max Headroom competed with, and sometimes was allied with, Blank Reg and Dominique of a lower-budget and harder-hitting network. The British series was darker and had a nastier edge in its depiction of a corrupt dystopian future in the Road Warrior/Bladerunner category. That makes this the first Cyberpunk TV series.

It featured drama in spacecraft, space station, Moon Base, and in the vicinity of various planets and moons in the solar system. Using marvelous sets, costumes, and background "Matte" paintings by Chesley Bonestell (Dean of Space Artisist) this series presumed that men would first go into space on an aerospace plane (perhaps a X-15 atop a Navaho booster), then build a toroidal space station, then use the space station as a base from which to probe the moon, and finally to land on the Moon. In fact, President Kennedy scrapped such plans when CIA reports suggested that the Russians were going a "quick and dirty" route to orbit, preparing to send men into space in capsules launched by modified ballistic missiles. He tasked NASA with an equally crude but immediate approach. The rest is history. Hence, "Men Into Space" is history as it SHOULD have been, based on the plans of Werner Von Braun and his cohorts. We still have not built the National Aerospace Plane (NASP), we are years behind on space station construction (set to start in late 1998), and, while we got to the moon in 1968 (as oppsed to the early 19070's predicted by "Men Into Space") we went to visit, and never built the moon base, nor did we boldly go onwards to Mars. Some critics (see "Future Tense" p.294) found the show "bland and unexciting" and blamed the low-budget artificiality of the sets. Col. Edward McCauley -- William Lundigan (only regular cast) ??? -- Joyce Taylor. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Parent everywhere lament the success of this ultra-low budget low-quality series revamped and redubbed from a pathetic Japanese series.

It is also quite obvious that the other girl can see her just as clearly. Jo (from the 1990's) and the girl in the mirror, Louisa Iredale (from 1919), later accidently find that they can also travel to each other's times through the mirror -- following upon which discovery a relentless sequence of events is set in motion." [summary written by David McAnally] Creator: Posie Graeme-Evans; Production Company: {to be done}; "Mirror Mirror" is more accurately described as a joint New Zealand / Australian production. It is not _just_ co-funded by Australian TV (as in the cases of "The Tripods" and "Doctor Who: The Five Doctors" (and even the non-sci-fi show "Bergerac") since in the case of "Mirror Mirror", they also flew Australian actors and actresses to New Zealand to appear as Australians (and, perhaps, to appear as English people as well, in the case of Nicholas Hammond) which presumably did not happen in the case of Tripods and definitely did not happen in the cases of "Doctor Who - The Five Doctors" and "Bergerac" (in "Doctor Who - The Five Doctors", the only Australian was Tegan, who was there anyway).
