In August and September I re-watched STAR BLAZERS. I have wanted to do this for a long... long time. Since I was in high school actually.
About two years ago, on Christmas I saw a great deal on the season one DVD set and bought it. I think I paid about $79. It was normally priced twice that much. So there is sat on my shelf. I have been so busy writing that it has taken me this long to finally sit down and watch the 26 episode season.
|Worth the price!|
It is important to note that I have not seen a single episode of the show since it's original airing in 1979. YES... 1979. I was 5 years old at the time. I remember watching it and loving it and wondering why there were no toys for it. :)
So here I am 2013, 39 years old... and believe it or not... I remembered a lot of what I saw.
Obviously, I remember the main plot. Clearly, I recall Desslok. And yes, I still sing the theme song in the shower once a week.
|Here Desslok used a radioactive poisonous gas when he attacked the Yamato, and Sandor shoots a whole through this baddie!|
|The communications room where the Star Force could call home. It's empty because Derek did not want to call home. He had no one to call.|
It explained much, as Derek did not want his turn to call home and did everything he could to avoid it.
|Leave me alone, IQ-9!|
