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

Cat in a Spacesuit (2019)

I saw this over the weekend in a discounted ex-catalogue store.  I have lots of questions about it and absolutely no answers....which doesn't mean we cant enjoy it on whatever level that may be!

Orbiter 9 (2017)

Orbiter 9 is a Spanish sci-fi  film about a young woman who has spent her entire life living alone in a space pod who then has her reality turned upside down with the arrival of a repairman who, governed by love, is compelled to reveal the truth about her situation to her.
This sounds interesting and has some decent reviews so I will probably have to check this one out

Lost in Space (2018) - A Gallery

One of the reasons I've not posted so much over the Christmas month was that we finally got Netflix here at Say Hello Spaceman Towers and consequentially I've been a little busy catching up with all the new TV shows in the evening (as well as everything else you cram into life).  And one of the first shows I went for was the LIS reboot.  I quite like the original series from a nostalgic point of view, the 1998 movies kind of sucks but this new version is pretty bloody amazing.  An intriguing and beautifully structured show that has some fine performances, lovely designs and excellent direction.  Bring on series 2, already









No spacesuits in this pic but I just have to say before I go, that I love that robot and the relationship with Will.  Highly recommended show.
 
Danger! Danger!
