Did You Know?


Sky never formally introduces himself. His name is first used by Arby in the second episode without explanation. See more »


Episode Two: Sky and Arby are in the school library and decide to "borrow" an atlas. Arby is holding the book as he goes through the door to the corridor but does not have it when they emerge on the other side. To cover this mistake, episode three has Roy return to the school to pick up a torch his father has dropped confronting Sky and he finds the atlas on the corridor floor. See more »


Goodchild: Life or destruction, you must choose.
Sky: The human species has already chosen. They made their choice five million years ago. With the first flint, man bent nature to his will. There can be no turning back.
Goodchild: There must be. Your way, the way of intelligence is the way to destruction. You made man make that choice, you made him violate the natural law.
Sky: No, human life has scorned both of us. The chaos to come is of man's own making. Neither you or I can help him now.

Original 70s kids' show
17 July 2018 | by Adrian SweeneySee all my reviews

I thought this was great fun. I only heard of it recently and accidentally and am astonished it exists. The title character is a cosmic traveller gone astray; his look is a cross between David Bowie and Jesus Christ - his spiel too, albeit with a touch of steely ruthlessness, amoral survival instinct and the anger of Jesus with the moneylenders - and he's destined to become a god. But he doesn't belong in this time and place so he's attacked by Nature itself - vines and leaves and winds and a sinister human incarnation of it. It's inventive and intelligent and properly creepy and eerie at times. I don't want to spoiler the various neat touches and good developments, but to give you a taste one episode features an excellent sort of were-crow almost as a throwaway bit. It starts off quite good and gets better and wilder as it goes on. But if you can't get along with 70s special effects, forget it.
