Traumafession:: Charles E. on Space 1999’s “Dragon’s Domain”

June 21st, 2012 by unkle lancifer · 3 Comments

When I was about 5 or 6 I walked in a dark room and turned on the TV set. What came on scared the crap out of me. It was an episode of Space:1999. It showed an alien devouring astronauts then spitting out burned husks.

I found a link on youtube. Kind of long, but it does not disappoint.

    Wait a second – is a hatchet standard spacefaring equipment? Does the ship occasionally get entangled in some space bushes or something? At the very least it could have had some weird flanges or points suggesting that it was a “futuristic” hatchet.

    I never watched Space 1999 when I was a kid – I wish that I had….

    LOL, “space bushes”. That’s an episode of Lexx just waiting to be filmed.

    Yeah, Space 1999 was often a monster-of-the-week kinda show. And some monsters got recycled. That tentacoo-wape one also showed up as a race of boogery-looking mindbenders in “The Bringers of Wonder”. Imagine a bunch of them, except they make you believe they’re your long-lost relatives until Martin Landau does a “They Live!” reveal at the last minute. That freaked me out pretty bad.
