  1. Man,that music really sounds like it came from a really really bad porno…

  2. And I know its bad grammar to use the word ‘really’ three times in a sentence but I’m tired…

  3. Sure do. It’s Australian, as the accents would attest. Most of the episodes are lost I believe. The people to ask about it are the Mu Meson archives http://www.mumeson.org I’ve seen some episodes screened before their feature films and they might trade you some copies if you want.

    I wasn’t asking myself if I remembered it, pal.

  5. I think my brain melted after watching that…yep, just checked. It did.

    That might just be the best sci-fi theme song ever crafted.

    It’s at least the funkiest one ever crafted.

  9. That was so hideous that I got embarrassed. Especially since I would have probably eaten it up as a kid.

    Oh yes, Phoenix 5; it was the business when I was a wee lad. You can find some history here: http://www.classicaustraliantv.com/phx5.htm

    The theme tune is Strange Galaxy by Jack Arel. It used to be available on CD some years ago, but I can’t find a reference to it now.

    Yeah, this used to reappear on Australian tv periodically. Evil scientists, square-jawed folk in yellow tunics (who, i ask, made yellow the colour of intergalactic adventure?) and robots which had a striking resemblance to our backyard water heater. Weird too.. remember it being very bright and colourful.. oh and budget, very, very budget.

    My strongest memory of it was then when the ship’s rockets fired you could see the iron filings from the sparklers collecting on its wings…
