A British pilot for an unsold series.
18 October 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"The Solarnauts" is a pilot for a proposed but never accepted British series. In watching it, I could understand why--especially since shows like "Star Trek" just looked so much more professionally made.

The show has a slick late 60s British soundtrack--dated but very 60s. Two heroes (Solarnauts) fly about space fighting baddies on behalf of the Earth. In this installment, the team go in search of Lo-Gic--a green-faced jerk who is threatening to blow stuff up unless the Earth bows to him. Can the heroes get him before he actually gets around to doing anything?

The show has a look similar to the Gerry and Sylvia Anderson shows (like "UFO") with lots of props made up of obvious models (like you'd see in a Godzilla film) and the aliens are incredibly lame and easy to beat up. Obviously this Lo-Gic character was designed as a recurring character.

So why wasn't it picked up? Well the action was pretty limp and I cannot see adults watching it--so it had very limited appeal. Not terrible...just not very good!
