The old ones are the best!!!
on 7 April 2015
It's got to be nearly fifty years since I watched this series. I unfortunately caught the new version on TV and felt such a pang of terrible loss I felt I had to order it, to see just why. It didn't take me long to understand what was missing. That show opening countdown is one of the most iconic of my childhood (that and some years later the Six MIllion Dollar Man) and just seeing it and hearing it again left me with a slightly silly grin just about half a mile wide.
Its amazing just how much you will remember just watching that intro!!!! And I should also point out the quality of the picture on the DVD conversion is absolutely outstanding !! Also, the sheer standard of the model and set building remains an incredible achievement, which, combined with the real time pyrotechnics and physical shooting makes it look wonderful. And give me puppets ,not CGI cartoons any time I!!!
