    Very good point about needing some affection for the subject for this type of thing or else it just looks “ugly”, but if you’re a bit embarrassed about it, as they seemed to be on Space Cadets, then it gets a bit clunky. It wasn’t quite cool enough yet.

    “Klaatu barada nikto!” is a line from 1951’s The Day the Earth Stood Still (Greg mispronounces it), that was reused as a joke in Army of Darkness (which definitely is affectionate).

    I’ve still got a tape of Space Cadets around that I don’t think I’ve watched in 20 years.

    Somehow it didn’t get reused & when I was getting short of blank tapes I realised it had enough interesting guests & such to make it worth keeping.

    Billy Kirkwood is an interesting choice of guest… perhaps Creamguide Films can do a commentary of his ‘Cops and Monsters’ amazon show *sneer, belittle, armchair critic, etc*

    However, addendum, Klaatu, Barada and Nikto were also Star Wars aliens – in Jabba’s emply to be precise. Plus the pilot of ‘Space Cadets’ was part of the very Glasgow based, Channel 4 Sci Fi weekend of 1995.
