That franchise jumped the shark the moment the Star Child was born in the second miniseries.
Yeah, everything was good until Elizabeth started speaking and doing glowing sparkly stuff.
True. But it landed in the enclosure with the shark when the series got rid of all the interesting supporting characters. Especially when they added the interesting supporting characters (see Ham Tyler) because the leads were paint we were watching dry.
The cast reduction mid-season was done to save money as a response to sagging ratings. I guess that makes it a cousin of shark-jumping, which is revamping or spicing up a show in a weird and arbitrary way in hopes of countering a ratings decline, but I don't see it as quite the same thing. They weren't trying to get a ratings boost with the change, just reduce their budget.
I agree that Michael Ironside was a charismatic addition to the cast, but I don't agree that the main leads were bland. I always quite liked Faye Grant. And Jane Badler was quite good, although they really had her camp it up.
If they really wanted spice they should have had more sex.... Alien / human sex, and without the skinsuits
Considering the limits of 80s' network tv, there was a lot of (implied) sex. And obviously Sybil Danning
And I didn't ever know that reptiles have a lot of "mammal" envy. Like, a lot.
I mean, they are fake skins. So, How did it work in the tv show universe? Did they go to the skin maker and ask for certain "measurements"?
You're way over thinking it....... Clearly the alien body under that has nice hips and huge boobs
In which case, I stand corrected.
Sorry if I made a mistake here but were not both of them aliens in the 2nd pic?
If they wear the dark goggles, they're Visitors.
In the 2nd pic the female Visitor is Mary Kruger, the other one is Gen. Maxwell Larson, a.k.a. The Butcher of Birmingham.
A.k.a. Space Nazis, right down to the stylized space swastika.
They went a little too much overboard with the metaphor in the series (the general uniform with all that paraphernalia was ridiculous). The parallelism was a little more elegant in the minis.

I really like the way this guy envisions everyday stuff as spacecraft. The guy's got some talent and should be working professionally somewhere if he isn't already.
That's amazing stuff... Thank you for posting
The erect porker, as it was called.
That is how kids should play
I still collect pen marker parts, containers and the like. "One day, I'll..."
Found shapes make for the best spacecraft. Car air fresheners make for great greebles.
By the way, if anyone is interested in watching Star Blazers 2199 I have just found that it is available in the U.S. on Funimation and Crunchyroll and both offer a free trial period
