Australia Had A Spaceship Show As Well
This deserves a user review simply because it the only MEMORABLE Australian television series about a spaceship. In my 1970s childhood I was a huge fan of this series, the loud theme music with the cornball narrator talking over the music was almost enough to make it cool.

Thanks to YouTube, I have been able to re-visit this series in this century. In a B&W episode, the ship encounters fog and rain in space and it is these kind of moments that I like most as it resembles Lost In Space and Land Of The Giants. In fact, at first glance, the costumes and cockpit set do have a very Land Of The Giants-look to them. Which is cool. But from what I saw on YouTube, there was just way too much talk and not enough action. Maybe I need to see more?

In Australia, I heard that low budget Phoenix Five was screened at the same time as the big budget US series - Land Of The Giants - and this concerned the producers as kids would go for the bigger budget product. So Phoenix got a poor timeslot.

Since every old show comes to DVD, I guess this one deserves a DVD release as well, I would probably get it but not for too much money.
