  • Children have gone missing all in places where a Combat 3000 is.

    9.0
    Clyde and Luke have just won level 2 in the Combat 3000 and are waiting to go to the world championships, unknown to them they have just been teleported on to a Uvodni ship miles above Earth. Meanwhile down on Earth, General Kudlak the mastermind behind the child-kidnapping scheme has cornered Sarah Jane and Maria but thankfully they escape and head towards Sarah Jane's house. The episode wasn't as good as previous ones but it is quite hard to live up to a story that was brilliant (Eye of the Gorgon). The story flows quite smoothly but I don't know how Mr Grantham found out where Sarah Jane lives, very confusing. Great special effects as always and will appeal to kids a bit more (Lasertag). Superb episode and looking forward to "Whatever happened to Sarah Jane?" which is the next episode.

  • Luke and Clyde try to escape from the Uvodni spaceship.

    8.4
    Great second part of this 2-part storyline. Again, I'm impressed with the consistency of the writing, Clyde is still improving Luke's use of slang and Maria and Sarah Jane still make an excellent team.



    I thought it was funny how Clyde immediately switched to macho mode when he encountered the kidnapped girl, even though she clearly was quite capable of handling herself. Her kissing Luke instead of Clyde was to be expected and a great scene. It seems to have awoken Luke's interest in girls, judging by his final question to Clyde in the car. This promises more fun in future episodes....moreless

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Sarah Jane: She buried the message from your Emperor.
      Kudlak: Is it true, Mistress?
      Mistress: I am not programmed for peace. This scenario does not compute. It cannot be real.
      Sarah Jane: You never expected the war to end, your computers were never programmed to recognise it when it happened.
      Mistress: Peace is an anomaly, without war I cannot exist.
      Kudlak: The point of our war was to achieve peace for our home.
      Mistress: We have no home Kudlak, except on the battlefield. Peace is a strangers land, we have no place there.
      Kudlak: You may not, but I do!

    • Mistress: What is the meaning of this? Who are you?
      Sarah Jane: My name is Sarah Jane Smith and I want my son back!

    • Mr. Grantham: I know, I probably should have called you first, but…
      Sarah Jane: Not at all, Mr. Grantham. I'm always delighted to study new forms of human low-life in the comfort of my own home.
      Mr Grantham: You are a cool old bird, I'll give you that much.

    • Luke: (After being teleported) I feel sick.
      Clyde: Well do me a favour, if this is where they hand over the trophy, don't puke in it.

    • Sarah Jane: That teleporter is here Mr Grantham, and you're gonna take us to it.
      Mr Grantham: And then what? Oooh, are you going to beam yourself up to the Uvodni ship and take them all on with your lipstick?

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • Ender's Game/The Last Star Fighter

      The basic idea of this story's plot has marked similarity to Orson Scott-Card's 1985 novel Ender's Game in which students at a military school participate in laser-tag type battles in the "Battle Room" to determine their combat abilities.

      Also the concept of a child's war-game being the training for an conflict is seen in the 1984 movie The Last Starfighter in which a video game is used to test players across the galaxy for their abilities to aid an alien race in its inter-stellar war.

    • Jen: Yeah, right, like 'Beam me up, Scotty'.

      Beam me up, Scotty is a catchphrase linked to the Star Trek franchise. It comes from the command given to the Chief Engineer Montgomery Scott to transport a member of the crew. It is notable however the phrase itself was never uttered during the course of the television series or subsequent films.

    • Maria: It doesn't matter whether it's Earth orbit or the Planet of the Apes.

      Planet of the Apes is a novel by Pierre Boulle, originally published in 1963 and made into two films, one in 1968 and badly received remake in 2001.

    • Clyde: Have you got the number for Captain Kirk?

      Captain James T. Kirk was the captain of the star ship Enterprise in the original TV show and movies of Star Trek

    • Mr. Grantham: ... in a galaxy far, far away.

      This is part of the the opening to the movie Star Wars by George Lucas.
