More season two clichés are featured in this show....yet again!
9 July 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The more I re-watch the second season of "Space: 1999", the more I realize just how bad the show had become after the producers 'jumped the shark' and made wholesale changes in the show. Now I do understand why perhaps some re-tooling was needed--season one was often too cerebral and viewership was much lower than expected. However, instead of a few changes, way too much changed--and none of the changes seemed to be improvements. First, a new character was added--one who had the weird ability to morph into any creature she saw--but mostly she turned into Earth creatures--which is pretty weird since she'd never seen Earth!! Second, the super-high production values were now gone and the show often looked pretty cheesy....really, really cheesy. Third, and this is related to the last complaint, there were a HUGE number of dopey monsters consisting of guys in rubber suits. These aliens almost always were laugh-inducing, as they simply looked dumb. When Maya wasn't turning into an Earth animal, she was turning into a dopey monster. Fourth, and I have no idea why they did this, but all too often Commander Koenig was 'off world' during all or most of many episodes. All too often, he was shown in tiny clips flying an Eagle in space and sending a couple messages to Alpha! What was the problem?! Did Martin Landau have such bad b.o. or halitosis that everyone refused to work with him? Or, did he have some strange disease and they didn't want him to infect others?!

So why do I bring all this up other than the fact this is a season two show? Well, it's because ALL the clichés are in this one--and after watching many shows in recent weeks, I was about to scream when I saw Koenig was off-world AND Maya had turned into a weird monster and was running amok on Alpha! Because of this, I felt like the show had just given up on writers and were simply using a Mad-libs pad to fill in a few blanks in each script!!! Come on, folks...did you even care at this point in the show?!

So is there anything positive about this particular episode? Well, one of Maya's transformations was NOT a monster or Earth creature (yay!)--though on the down side they reused a monster from an episode just a few weeks earlier. And, it was good for a laugh to look at the guy in the pink plastic mask as he whispered his way through his brief cameo. Plus, while Koenig was off-world, he did make more than just a token appearance starting about mid-way through the show--so at least he earned his check for a change! Otherwise, whole space warp concept was not terrible but executed with so many clichés that I can't recommend it. And, while not usually seen in the show, the final scenes with the spinning ship and the warp were particularly poorly executed. I think a bright 9 year-old could have come up with something better than this.
