I just got the DVD boxset and I'm going through the series. Wow, it really does stand the test of time. There are a couple of things that stand out for me: 1. The scripts are really good, I'm not talking about the stories themselves but the dialogue is really sharp! Much better writing that anything on TV today. 2. I can't believe how much was borrowed by George Lucas, especially for Empire Strikes Back! I'm going to go back and make a list. 3. Muffy is played by a chimp! Wow I never would have picked that, but it's brilliant. 4. the ship models are still great, especially the Vipers.
Can't wait to watch the rest of the episodes!
