  • A spoke materializes during an experiments with plants and then begins to kill....

    the troubled spirit is my favourite episode of Space 1999. So original, it scared me when i was a child in 1976.

    well played, good cast of actors, good music and direction. It was an unusual episode, with new ideas, where fantasy and scifi became one thing.

    A spoke materializes during an experiments with plants and then begins to kill. Dan Mateo, the botanist, will pay with his life the result of his experiment. Still now i wonder: why Koenig and Bergman didn't understand that if you place a person, whose ghost told you he died burned, close to en electric recintion, he will die burned in then same way than his ghost?moreless
  • Very spooky ghost story with the 70s ESP fascination.

    ESP was big in the 70s sci-fi/horror shows. This episode has the very original idea of a spirit of a man who isn't dead yet coming back to avenge his death before it happens. Although the 2 people he kills are ones who would have helped prevent his death but they explain that the spirit at first to bound to the man's subconscious will & his anger at those 2. This ep scared me when I was a kid and I was glad to see it still held up. Not completely logical but pretty darn good. Perhaps they should have thought what could cause those burns on the ghost & then not put Mateo near something that could do that to him!!!!! Alpha damage report: 3 dead personel.moreless
