Oh yes, I know what I was going to say.
Has anyone else seen the repeats of Space 1999 that are being run in the evenings on one of the freebie satellite channels? I have become completely hooked.
Everything about it makes me laugh. The risible "all jiggle about at the same time" acting.
The flares and anorak-based costumes.
The implausible romantic leads, who all either look like your old geography teacher, or like Dutch porn stars.
The bizarre, more holes than a Swiss cheese, plots.
But the point where I realised I was hooked was last week when Brian Blessed was in it. With truly astonishing makeup and a cape that he swirled villainously.
God it was great.
He had blue stripes in his beard and got to cackle and shout a lot. More than usual I mean.
Ah, I avoided the show as a teenager because it was lame and cheap and British*. And now, those are the very reasons I like it.
*And it wasn't Star Trek. And this was pre Next Generation, mind.
