Fans of this series often look on the second series of Space 1999 as a poorer cousin of the first series, and although there is wisdom in this opinion, there is fun to be had here. The first series is overtly serious, and thus is more satisfying, but despite being camper and occasionally sillier (Brian the Brain being a good examply), pop this in your dvd player when seriousness is not required and a good time is to be had by all! I find this series most entertaining, especially when I want a blob of nostalgia or simple to switch my head off after a long day.
Network have done sterling work with the first series, and other great series form the past, and we can expect the same here.
Depite flapping flares, actors perfomances that offer both cheese and ham (for those of you who are a bit peckish), a typical classic Gerry &Sylvia Anderson series such as this will please those in the know and probably delight those who approach this with fresh eyes. Enjoy!
