Rupert Bear (2007)

Series 1 - Episode 32 Rupert and the Moon Adventure - Nuff said!


Postman Pat and the Space Suit (2017)

Postman Pat and the Space Suit is the 26 episode of season 8 of the children's animated favourite Postman Pat. It aired on Wednesday 29th March 2017 on CBeebies, the BBC's channel for younger viewers....that said, there's something very relaxing about watching Pat potter around delivering mail that might just appeal to the older viewer as well.

Yes, that really is Professor Brian Cox you recognise right there.

Prospect (2018)

Prospect is the 2018 feature length movie version of the 2014 short film.  Its rather good and we get a glimpse into a version of the future that I would love to see revisited.  An excellent slice of sci-fi, made on a budget but doing it so well you cant help but admire the talent behind it.

Umbrella Academy (2019)

I only watched the first episode and it seemed good but there is so much good TV around now days that you just cant watch it all.  I may return one day.


Love, Death & Robots. Series 1 episode 11 - Helping Hand (2019)

Animated short in which a stranded astronaut must make some very tough decisions in order to survive. The episode was written by Claudine Griggs and based on the short story by Philip Gelatt.  The animation is of a very high, almost realistic style for this particular story but I would recommend the series as a whole for a variety of stories and styles.

Dog in a Spacesuit (2019)

Available from a different branch of the same chain of discounted ex-catalogue stores that had the Cat in a spacesuit.... I'm still not sure why or if there are yet more to be discovered.

Robot Monster (1953)

So....Robot Monsters.  Not a spaceman then or even a spacesuit but interesting none the less as it features the space helmet from Flight to Mars which then went on to feature in Radar Men from the Moon before being partnered with a gorilla suit.....its probably best not to ask why!  As rubbish as it is, its become very icon an image worthy of a little look-see.  Plus, if you go all the way down the post you'll see the second space helmet to feature in the movie.


Thanks Tim, for suggesting this blog post
