These retrospectives, by Oliver Harper, are very informative and a “Must Watch” for any fan of the original trilogy. He delves into pre production, filming, merchandising, games, music, and much more. It’s an extremely entertaining watch, or even re-watch. Oliver is a talented editor, plus he is easy to listen to. If you haven’t heard of these before, you’re welcome. If you have, give them a another view… this is my 3rd or 4th time on each.
This is a visual top nine list of some of my favorite sci-fi television, recurring, creature races. They may not have been on every week but they were always the threat in the background. I am trying to limit these to characters that were not rendered through stop-motion or computer generation. These are cats in suits, sweating and trying to emote through plastic, foam rubber or heavy make-up. Also, being a child of the 70’s this list will be populated with the earlier versions of these characters even if the modern versions may be technically more visually stunning. Some are written seriously while others are just silly and meant to be.
At first, this list was just an excuse to post about my number one choice. It was going to be all about the monstrous adversaries on the great series from yesteryear, but quickly grew into something else. The list excludes individual characters, even though individual character photos are used in some cases.
