1. now that's one
I've never heard of before. I guess they just never aired it in this neck of the woods.

I do remember Starlost, though. It starred the guy from 2001 and was based on a Heinlein novel, I believe...

5. I'd never heard of Starlost
until I read your post. A quick google revealed that it was a (failed) Canadian series based on a Harlan Ellison concept. That may be true, but it appears the basic idea came directly from Heinlein's "Orphans of the Sky."

9. that was the book I was thinking of...
I remember it was shot on videotape and it had kind of a fake look to it. You're right, it didn't last long.

btw, welcome to DU!

7. Nope.

Starlost was originally a book by Harlan Ellison. The tv execs ballsed up his writing so bad that he refused to have his name put on it but retained his credit by using Cordwainer Bird as the name of the originator.

2. Reminds me of Space: 1999
But I've never seen this series before.

3. Man, I remember that!
The show never made any sense to me, though (I was only in grade school).

The synopsis at your link finally helped me understand it. :hi:

Sorry.
