10 Stars...from a teen in the 1970s! :)
20 January 2015 | by gilligan1965See all my reviews

Although this show seems silly and passé now...in the 1970s, when the U.F.O. scare and excitement was in full-throttle, this was a 'great show!'

In 1979, when I was thirteen, my mind was on 'all of these great and fun' things from outer space, as was every other teen (boy)! Our minds were on such things as - "Outer Space Documentaries" like this; as well as "Star Trek" (TOS); "Close Encounters of the Third Kind;" "In Search Of;" "U.F.O." (British TV show); "The Night Gallery;" "Dr. Who;" "Project U.F.O;" "Battlestar Gallactica;" "Space 1999;" "Planet of the Apes" (1974 TV show and movies); "The Six Million Dollar Man;" "The Twilight Zone;" etc.

I even remember that we kids in the 1970s even had 'eyes-on' "Bigfoot!" The 1970s was the "Golden Age" of U.F.O.s, phenomena, and, the unexplained; and...we kids ATE IT UP and LOVED IT!

I'm now 49 years-old, and, quite happy that I didn't seek-out this documentary! Instead, my fourteen-year-old Son 'sent' it to me! It's great that the youngsters of today have taken an interest in what us 'old men' once viewed as an interest when 'we' were youngsters!

Because of a child, MY CHILD...I'm now interested in all of this once again! Thank you :)
