Several times during this series, when a cast member disembarks from a spaceship, it is obvious that the prop used as a "ship" is simply a car, down to the dome light turning on and off as the door opens and closes. See more »
As well as a "This Episode" segment, there was originally supposed to be been a "Next Episode" segment as well, just prior to the closing credits. A piece of music was specifically recorded for this "trail" but never used. The idea was dropped prior to transmission as it would tie stations to a fixed broadcast order - unless they were prepared to swap them around or cut them off completely. See more »
The main problem with this series is it couldn't decide what it wanted to be. It had alot of the fun "family element" but yet it was marketed for an adult audience. This made it a very tough series to attract an audience (especially if it kept getting bumped by Ab-Flex infomercials every time I tried to tape it) I think this could have been more of a success run on Saturday mornings but NOT at 3am like many markets aired the series. Having said that this series had many elements of Gerry Anderson I love (remember this was produced by the guy who did Thunderbirds, Space 1999 and UFO). I thought the aliens were done well and it was nice to see models used instead of the over-used CGI animation we see all too often these days with this type of series. If you watch this series expecting a Gerry Anderson production (fans of UFO and Thunderbirds), this is a fun series! If you believe that all science fiction is required to be glossy, expensive and full of flash-bang CGI effects without regard to episode plot or character interaction (Blake's 7 & Doctor Who haters) Avoid this series at all cost! I guarantee you'll hate it.
