UFO - Fighting Aliens In A Super Sexy Future

In the year 1980, a secret military organization named SHADO (Supreme Headquarters Alien Defence Organisation) becomes operational. Its purpose is to defend the Earth from Aliens who've been coming to Earth and kidnapping humans. It is believed that these Aliens are a dying race, and are transplanting human body parts to extend their own lifespans.

SHADO's main headquarters is hidden beneath a film studio near London England. SHADO also has a base on the moon (Moonbase) and a fleet of submarines (Skydiver). Incoming UFO's are initially detected by an Earth orbiting satellite named SID (Space Intruder Detector). An initial interception attempt is made in space with three Interceptor craft launched from Moonbase. A second attempt is made in the Earth's atmosphere with a fighter plane (Sky One) launched from Skydiver. Landed UFO's are tracked down with ground Mobiles.

SHADO is run by the extremely dedicated Commander Ed Straker, and is overseen by General James Henderson. Straker's seconds in command are Col. Alec Freeman, Col. Paul Foster, and Col. Virginia Lake. Moonbase is often commanded by Lt. Gay Ellis or Lt. Nina Barry. Skydiver is often commanded by Capt. Peter Carlin or Capt. Lew Waterman.

The episodes are typically about SHADO's attempts to thwart the Alien invasions, and the various Alien strategies to disable SHADO or kill its commander. Recurring themes include maintaining SHADO security, keeping SHADO properly funded, and the effect that the secrecy has on the personal lives of SHADO's operatives. - (Source)

The show's concept was unusually dark for its time: the basic premise was that Earth had not simply been visited by extraterrestrial visitors, but indeed was under brutal alien attack, and that alien invaders were abducting humans to use as involuntary organ transplant donors. A later episode, "The Cat With Ten Lives," contains a sinister plot point which suggests that the UFO pilots are not humanoid aliens at all, but are in fact human abductees under the control of the alien intelligences, suggesting that, as in Captain Scarlet, the aliens, in the dialogue of Dr. Jackson, "may have no physical being at all and therefore need a container, a vehicle – our bodies".

The show also featured realistic, believable relationships between the human characters to a far greater extent than usual in a typical science fiction series, showing the clear influence of American programmes like The Twilight Zone and Star Trek and British action series such as Danger Man. One early episode, "Computer Affair," suggested an interracial romance between two continuing characters – something that was uncommon in British TV of the period – while others showed the heroes making mistakes with sometimes fatal consequences. Furthermore, relatively few episodes of the series actually had happy or (for the characters) satisfying endings.

The episode "Confetti Check A-OK" is almost entirely devoted to the breakdown of Straker's marriage under the strain of maintaining the secrecy of the classified nature of his duties. "A Question of Priorities" takes this exploration further, and hinges on Straker having to make the life-or-death choice of whether to divert a SHADO aircraft to deliver life-saving medical supplies to his critically injured son, or allow the aircraft to continue on its mission to attempt a last-chance intercept against an incoming UFO. Two key images from "A Question of Priorities" – Straker's son being struck down and his ex-wife declaring she never wants to see him again – are repeated in flashback in two subsequent episodes, "Sub Smash" and "Mindbender," suggesting that Straker remains haunted by these unresolved emotional issues.

Another episode, "The Square Triangle," centres on a woman and her lover who plan to murder her husband. When they accidentally kill an alien from a downed UFO instead, SHADO intervenes and doses the guilty pair with amnesia drugs. (This was decades ahead of a similar story device in Men in Black, and it was one that was deployed for similar reasons.) Straker realises, however, that the drugs will not affect their basic motivation and, worse, he cannot reveal the truth to local legal authorities. The end credits of this episode run over a scene set in the near future, showing the woman visiting her husband's grave and then walking away to meet her lover.

Some critics complained that the emphasis on down-to-earth relationships weakened the show's science fiction premise and were also a means of saving money on special effects. The money-saving argument might have been true to a limited extent, but the Andersons made a virtue of necessity. They had always hoped to direct live-action TV drama, and although the marionette shows helped them develop impressive skills in effects and scripting, they had always considered them as essentially being a way of keeping in work and earning money while they tried to break into "real" TV drama. Others countered that the characters were more well-rounded than in other science fiction shows and that science fiction concepts and special effects in themselves did not preclude realistic action and interaction and believable, emotionally engaging plots. Ultimately, the mix of dark human drama with traditional science fiction adventure is probably the reason for UFO's enduring cult popularity and what sets it apart from the rest of TV SF series. For example, the time-freeze plot of the episode "Timelash" is similar to The Outer Limits episode "The Premonition". But UFO adds a drama twist: Straker repeatedly injects a drug (X 50 stimulant) to remain awake during the time freeze, which results in Straker being hospitalised in SHADO's medical centre. The ending not only shows him lying in bed recovering from the harmful effects of drug use, but has a subtext that the plot of the episode may, in fact, have been a drug-induced delusion, although actual evidence of the events such as Turner – guest cast member Patrick Allen – being found shot dead by Colonel Paul Foster (Michael Billington) and guards at the start, plus Colonel Virginia Lake (Wanda Ventham) being found having been knocked out, also the gate security officer's records showing Straker's car as being 'logged out' but not 'logged back in' to SHADO H.Q. together with a high powered hand-held rocket launcher being found on a building roof having been fired, would subsequently prove the events depicted in the episode HAD in fact occurred....

UFO confused broadcasters in both Britain and the United States, who could not decide if it was a programme for adults or for children – In the UK, the first series was originally shown in the 5.15pm 'tea-time' slot on Saturdays, and on Saturday mornings during an early repeat, by both London Weekend and the-then South-East franchisee, Southern Television, which began broadcasting the first series almost two months before the London area. (The fact that the Andersons's companies, like APFilms and Century 21, were primarily associated with children's programming did not help matters.) This confusion – coupled with erratic broadcast schedules – are considered contributing factors in its cancellation, although UFO is credited with opening the door to moderately successful runs of later live-action, adult-oriented programming by Anderson such as The Protectors and Space: 1999. - (Source)


In the UK, people drive on the left side of the road and steering wheels are on the right side of the vehicle. However, in UFO's version of 1980s Britain, both of these have been reversed. The show's creators were simply going along with what was being predicted at the time, which was that the UK would switch its driving system sometime in the near future. That change never happened.

Gerry Anderson intended the second season of the series to focus on alien attempts to destroy the Moon. When "UFO" was cancelled, Anderson developed this idea into Space: 1999 (1975).

Female moonbase personnel wore purple, pink and blue wigs because Gerry Anderson thought the color looked the best under the set's lights.

Initially Ed Bishop's hair was bleached for the series. As time wore on they decided to switch to a blonde wig instead to avoid damaging his hair with repeated bleaching. Bishop used to own this wig and would bring it with him to sci-fi conventions.

The series was filmed at two separate studios due to the untimely closure of MGM's Borehamwood Studios. Pinewood Studios became the final studio after a six month wait for availability. Because of this, many of the non-contractually obligated actors left to pursue other projects, making recasting a necessity for some roles.

On December 31, 1994 the video game company Microprose released a game called "UFO: Enemy Unknown" based on this TV series.

The name of the planet that the aliens hailed from is never mentioned.

In this series, the term "U.F.O." is usually not "spelled out". Most often, it is pronounced as a word: "you-foh." Only automated systems like the voice of the computer on the interlink satellite pronounce it "you-eff-oh".

Gerry Anderson's first live-action TV series, after a number of shows produced in the "Supermarionation" process. Star Ed Bishop provided voices for one of these shows, Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons (1967). - (Source)

'Star Wars’ Spinoff To Have Both Boba Fett And Han Solo?

From The Inquisitr

As of this writing, most fans aren’t even thinking about the Star Wars spinoff films we’ll be getting in the coming years. The film that’s likely on everyone’s minds is J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But if Disney plans to release the films yearly as originally scheduled, then there’s bound to be significant overlap in production schedules.

As such, we’ve been getting a lot of news regarding the upcoming spinoffs — one rumored as a Boba Fett movie and the other as a Han Solo movie. The latest rumor comes from Latino Review, and states that Han Solo and Boba Fett may both be in the first spinoff from Godzilla director Gareth Edwards.

“I want to reiterate for you literal minded readers out there that the only new thing I’ve contributed to this conversation is that I heard a rumor that the Han Solo and Boba Fett movie that we assumed was two movies has become one movie.”

The potential existence of Boba Fett in the movie does lend some credence to the recent info Making Star Wars got on the project that “bounty hunters are important to the film,” though bounty hunters would probably be important regardless of whether or not it was Han or Boba leading the flick. One last bit of information we have is that the movie will be filmed, at least partially, in Mexico.

Marvel gave the Inhumans their own series more than once over the years. The Inhumans first had their own series in 1975 with author Doug Moench leading the charge. Moench used several devices which have formed the core of many Inhumans stories to come later: the destruction of their home Attilan, being at odds with the rest of Marvel’s characters, and Jack Kirby’s device of Maximus the Mad throwing a monkey wrench into every situation. - Marvel Comics

Godzilla Via Satellite

by Armand Vaquer

Above, a satellite view of Kurihama Flower World. Can you spot the Godzilla slide?

The other night, I was looking up something in Yokosuka, Japan. After I was done finding what I was looking for, I decided (for the fun of it) to see if I can get a satellite view of the Godzilla slide at the Kurihama Flower World park.

Sure enough, once I located the park through Google Maps, I zoomed in on the park and hit the satellite view feature and was able to find the Godzilla slide pretty fast.

Above, a little closer view. The Godzilla slide casts a familiar-shaped shadow.

As you can see from the accompanying satellite photographs, Godzilla was relatively easy to spot by his distinctive shadow. The overhead power lines that I knew were there were also an aid to finding the Godzilla slide.

Above, zooming in on the Godzilla slide.

In the photographs, it is easy to spot the shadow image of his dorsal spikes and tail.

Above, a view of the Godzilla slide from the ground. Photo by Armand Vaquer.

If Godzilla were a real creature and the Japanese Self Defense Forces had to find him via satellite, this would be what they would likely see to pinpoint where to direct their weapons.

The Godzilla slide is covered in The Monster Movie Fan's Guide To Japan on page 32.

The Second Trailer For Extinction Promises More Dinosaur Mayhem This Summer!

Written By Ken Hulsey
Source: Avery Guerra

It's 2015 so let the parade of Dinosaur movies begin!

As we reported earlier this month, Velvet Hammer Films has already produced a clone of the upcoming mega-blockbuster "Jurassic World" entitled "Jurassic City". As one would expect, yet another movie about dinosaurs running around eating people has poked it's head out of the marsh. This time around, however, it may be a pretty decent film.

Indeed Hollywood Vision Films' (UK) dinosaur horror "Extinction" (Previously entitled "The Expedition") seems to have all the right elements for a good old fashioned monster movie including good actors, good effects and a good plot.

Jurassic Predators are are found living and breathing in a remote area of the Amazon surviving... hunting in their very own Jurassic world hidden away from the modern world.

But when a team of explorers find themselves deeper into the Amazon Jungle, their superstitious guides abandon them, with talk of spirits and monsters and cryptozoological beasts, but not believing the talk of these spirits or creatures the team push on... deeper... .alone... but there is something in the jungle... something ancient. The team soon realise they are being hunted by highly evolved prehistoric predators.

Nature has evolved...

Though I have no way to confirm it the film project seems to have evolved from, or at least was inspired by, the 2011 StudioCanal production "The Dinosaur Project", which had different actors but an almost identical plot.

Anyway ... give this trailer a look:

Extinction will hit theaters in the UK in March 2015.

Sky Sharks - Sharks, Nazis, Zombies ... and Topless Amazons With Machine Guns All In One Movie

Written By: Ken Hulsey
Source: Avery Guerra

Leave it to those wacky Germans to create a movie with all the elements of Sharknado, Walking Dead, Snakes on a Plane, and The Exorcist all wrapped together with Nazis and topless amazon chicks thrown in to boot.

Now, I don't have any idea how all these things all go together (It's kinda like that game from Sesame Street back in the day ... One of these things is not like the other) but somehow the folks over at Benfeghoul Productions and Marctropolis Filmentertainment figured out how to mash it all up.

Details on this thing are kinda sketchy, due to the fact that most of the press is written in German (Go figure, right) but there is a portion of the films' website in English where we found this synopsis:

A team of Arctic geologists stumble across an abandoned laboratory in which the Nazis developed an incredible and brutal secret weapon during the final months of WW2 .

Deep in the ice, they accidentally awake a deadly army of flying zombie sharks ridden by genetically mutated, undead super-humans, who are unleashed into the skies, wreaking their bloodthirsty revenge on any aircraft that takes to the air.

An elite task force is assembled to take on this deadly threat and stop the Sky Sharks from conquering the air, but as time runs out, the task force realises they will have to fight fire with fire, and the stage is set for the greatest flying super-mutant zombie shark air battle the world has ever seen....

Honestly I can't wait to see that. Though that blurb promises a spectacular air war between jets and flying mutant sharks ridden by zombies (I know it takes a minute to wrap your brain around it) almost all the pics I've seen take place on a airliner with passengers and clergy fighting the undead.

That leads me to this poster from the film that shows a topless amazon woman with a machine gun. The banner reads "Sky Frogs", which could be another movie or a parody of this movie? I have no idea!

All I know it is a buxom woman with a gun fighting of frogs. Maybe it's that wacky German humor or Benfeghoul Productions and Marctropolis Filmentertainment's next film project? When we find out we'll let ya know.
