I don't think I'd like to see a remake - I prefer it how it was.
The first season of Space 1999 was pretty dull and sterile looking. The plots were too complicated and the dialogue was serious.
The second series was much more colourful, full of action...
The Eagle spacecraft were probably the best part of the show IMHO.
I still want to see the conclusion to Space 1999 - I hate it when a series is abandoned in the middle of a story.
I'm trying to see the repeats on ITV4......
One episode in particular that gave me the collywobbles (when I was a kid) was a ships graveyard, with some sort of monster in it that skeletonised its victims.
I loved the one where they went to war with the Hawk ships.
Also the encounter with a generation ship was pretty good.
Unfortunately the problem with a remake would be the problem I had as a kid, the physics, I could never square that. The size of a nuclear explosion large enough to wrench the moon out of orbit always seemed implausible, and they would have to be traveling at light speed, and if they were how come they passed planets slowly enough to visit them?
Gee I was a nerdy kid.
