These British shows were slightly ahead of my time, but I caught them on endless re-runs on WGN Chicago as they aired every morning between the hours of 5:30-7:00. Why was I watching TV at those hours? What else do you think paperboys do when wrapping and rubber-banding newspapers?
The show will probably be remembered as much for the theme song as any specific episode. I suspect I’ll be humming this most of the day.
Rest in Peace Gerry Anderson, and F-A-B.
