E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)

And then for no good reason I can ever work out, an Apollo astronaut turns up at the door to capture ET.

  1. Yes,if they were going to do it today they`d be in biohazard suits,but it was so completely unexpected to see plus the fact that you cant see the guys face made the scene quite scary.I was always hoping for a sequel,especially now that all the cast has grown up it would be the perfect time

    3. Cheers again Tim, not looked at the links yet but apart from Farscape this all sounds like new stuff for the files, I'll have a look-see when it's not 2 in the morning - mad unexpected night in the company of the lovely NHS I need to go to bed now.

      Its an interesting sounding series and starred 2001 Keir Dullea and had as guest stars Walter Koenig,barry morse and john colicos[both in the same episode] the story is a lot like the Space:1999 ep "Mission of the Darians" which barry morse starred in funnily enough
      And heres the only one I could find from Lexx series2 ep3

    6. list looks very interesting. Cheers. I think I've got some homework to do over the weekend.
      Hospital was for the other half, not myself. All fine now, thanks for asking although I've still yet to catch up on the sleep lost. which is where I'm going now. resisting urge to check links but had to peak at Sir Patrick Moore, which is a fantastic find. - cheers again
