Yes!!!

 

I don't think I'd like a new one though. I'm very old, and terribly set in my ways :P.

Oh my gosh what memories.

It used to be on ITV before World of Sport if I remember rightly.

Seven Zark Seven...an R2D2 rip off or what he he.

They don't make them like that anymore.

A classic.

Battle of the Planets was originally a Japanese serial called Gatchaman.

It wasn't a kid programme - it was adult and very violent, had sex in it and some bisexual bad guys.

The Americans bought the show and edited out the sex and violence and used the Seven Zark Seven Robot to narrate the plot gaps left by the editing.

Wtf!!! Gatcherman, what the hell is gatcherman, why not Gforce?... That right there just annoyed me. No white capes either. No Gforce music. Change something too much and it ceases to be what it was meant to be. Grown ups will expect original identifiers ffs.

Grrrrrr

It originally had Zoltar as a transgender character, which they didn't like at all :lol:. Given how much they had to take out, it's a miracle there was anything left.

 

Here is an episode list [/nerd]. I remember my mum using the threat of not being allowed to watch the second bit of the two part episodes pretty much every time there was one :blink:.
