    At least get the eyes right on your Death Star wanna be.

    I thought football was more of a dog’s past time than a cat’s?

    Question: What type of trousers do you wear when you’re frightened?
    Answer: Puma trousers.

    @THX: you’re thinking of Everton, with a T.

    “I think you had better get rid of that tin of sardines you’ve got strapped to your belt.”

    I think the symbolism is subtly suggesting that angry cat people are an important part of the story.

    Dude: “Something smells funny in this arena.”
    “That’s not an arena, humans. That’s our litterbox you’re standing in.”

    Eve and Ron don’t seem too happy with their masters. Maybe cat/bear furry BDSM isn’t for them.

    @Tat: You’re comple’ely correc’.

    Maya: I told you not fly like a jackass. Frigging Italians.

    Tony: Hey…it’s not my fault! The brakes on Eagle 1 are worse than my old Fiat, and the handling sucks.

    Maya: Your driving sucks. Got any ideas before we become a Friskies Buffet?

    Tony: Yeah…you shapeshift into a big bitch and chase off the giant cat until Alpha sends another Eagle. We’re gonna be okay.

    Maya: As long as you’re not flying us home.

    “You stand before us convicted of heinous crimes against kitties. We sentence you to be mauled to death by a thousand house cats. This typically takes about 10 hours. During that time, the napping area will be open.

    I need to correct the mouseover text — how do we know they aren’t outstanding in HER field? (Let’s face it, it’s the cat’s field, or possibly the bears’)

    @THX: I have had several cats who liked to run along batting a small ball between their front paws and occasionally smacking it a longer distance. We call this “kitty soccer”. So giant puma might also appreciate it.

    Where the bears factor into this, I don’t know — the only football-related Bears I know of are the Chicago team*, and the plinth-sitting ursines aren’t wearing helmets.

    @The Blue: Heh. How many Eagles did they start out with? Because they couldn’t possibly have kept replacing them out there in the badly-acted beyond.

    * (Da Bearz, as SNL used to say).

  14. The Blue Are Coming Says:

    @GSSex…oh the acting was terrible. The stars, Martin Landau and Barbra Bain were the worst. Each had an emotional range of A to B. But damn, I loved that show as a kid – open-and-close-white-noise-filter-explosions and all.

  15. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Tony: Well, looks like this is the end. We’re done for, Maya.

    Maya (suddenly revealing herself as a Catwoman): What to do mean “we,” human?

  16. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Bad transcription above (15). Maya’s line should read: “Waat duz yu mean ‘weee’ huumaan?”

  17. Francis Boyle Says:

    @The Blue Are Coming

    Yes, the acting was bad and the writing worse but I still do love me some eagles.

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Acting bad, writing terrible, effects and set design good.

    Sadly, this is not enough to save a show. I watched some episodes on a portable black and white TV, in which the few charms of it were of course gone. Leaving only the awful writing and acting to not carry the show.

    Martin Landau was actually a good actor — I suspect when he realized what a turkey he’d gotten into, he just didn’t bother. Perhaps the bad scripts knocked all his thespian ability away, like the Moon from the Earth.

  19. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @GSS ex-noob: I remember it from reruns in the early 80s, long enough ago I could no longer swear if it was good or bad. However, it’s available in fair quality on Youtube and having checked it out a year or so ago, yeah, it’s pretty clunky. It does have a certain retro charm at times, or maybe that’s just me.

  20. THX 1139 Says:

    The Space: 1999 cast and crew truly believed they were doing an adventure version of 2001: A Space Odyssey on TV (Kubrick tried to sue!), but although the kids loved it, the general reception wasn’t great, and scheduling was all over the place, so they brought in a new producer (Fred Freiberger) for season 2, which turned it into a monster of the week show that nobody was satisfied with. Except the kids, who stayed loyal. Maybe the Andersons could never escape their origins. And those monsters were some of the grottiest ever seen anywhere.
