Audrey Landers Honeymoon in Atilla, no, Starbuck Goodbye

Not quite such "a solid entry" as one of my colleagues here would have you believe, but then, you gotta remember that this was a kiddies show broadcast on Sunday afternoons in the US during its original stint. And back in 1978. It then becomes at least a hell of a lot more ahead of it's time than it would seem today. The appeal to children is obvious, observe that singsongy rhyme bit as their plan is set through its paces. This was adventure for children, although set a few notches above Walt Disney.

The lovely presence of Audrey Landers (fated to later become Afton Cooper, the live-in lover of ol' Cliff Barnes in DALLAS, and from there on, a rock star) peaked my interest when that teaser appeared and I really thought I was in for a treat. Audrey Landers in a fur bikini. Unfortunately the outfit is kinda, well, conservative. Just like that one in SHEENA, the Gena Lee Nolan TV version. Audrey is cute, but doesn't quite fire up the screen, I'm sorry to report. Could have been way, way, way hotter. But, well, yeah, was actually a family show. On Sunday afternoons back in '78...

The story-line is as implausible as can be, with dumb character Kyle who doesn't have even half a brain. For who with a brain bigger than a peanut would trust a tin-can Nazi like a Ceylon? Take one look at a Ceylon, they are huge, arrogant silver-skulled machine boars with no feelings. Who would enter in trade with them? To top it all, this man-boy goes around tooting his ram horn like some campy nut, wearing white wings as a headdress, he sure looked as gay as a rabbit.

Specter and Lucifer. An idea there, but very corny. Very, very corny. In the first place, they look too much alike. Just as if some money was saved. And where did their human mannerisms originate from?

In the adventure-for-children genre, with children as the heroes, it might work, but it's a little bit too much to take as part of the series.

It's in any case way better than the previous episode. That one was lousy. This one has Audrey Landers. Goes a long way to help make up for AWOL Maren Jensen.
