I have begun to get an inkling of what R3 is going through with his Man From Atlantis reviews.  It took me weeks, literally, to get through this episode.  But we're all about self sacrifice and individual responsibility here at Republibot, so may I present to you my impressions of the Space:1999 episode "Ring around the Moon"


Except there's no ring.  There's a forcefield thingee, but no ring.

This week, we visit a ‘Black Sun’... an astrophysical impossibility, but since when did that ever stop a science fiction TV show?


Since this is the Seventies, and we are more interested in the story than the science (or at least that’s what they tell us), let’s take a peek, shall we?





RETROSPECULATIVE TV: Man From Atlantis: “Man From Atlantis III: The Deadly Spores” (Season 1, Episode 3)

You may remember how oddly excited I was when I recently watched the first “Man From Atlantis” TV Movie, for the second time in 33 years, and suddenly knew where I was and what I was doing on March 4th, 1977, between the hours of 8 and 10 PM. Well, though I knew I’d missed some of the episodes of this series, I’d assumed I’d seen most of them. Turns out I was wrong: I’m more-than-passingly sure I never saw Episode 2, and I’m certain I never saw this one.
