Rocky Jones – Menace From Outer Space (1954)

The show was based on the exploits of clean-cut, square-jawed Rocky Jones, the best known of the Space Rangers. These were Earth-based space policemen who patrolled the United Worlds of the Solar System in the not-too-distant future. Rocky and his crew would routinely blast-off in a V-2-like chemically-fueled, upright rocketship, the Orbit Jet XV-2, or later the nearly identical Silver Moon XV-3, on missions to moons and planetoids where the odds of success seemed remote yet they would always prevail.

Duck and Cover (1954)

I remember films like this. Of course, being a little younger than this film, the scare was more hydrogen bombs. My grade school years were in the shadow of the Cuban missile crisis. By that time, thermonuclear weapons made the idea of Duck and Cover kind of silly.

Blakes 7 – Season 2 (1979)

OK. I’m hooked. I never watched this “in the day” but it’s sort of fun now. The series is set in a future age of interstellar travel and follows the exploits of a group of renegades and convicted criminals. It’s really kind of adult themed and dire by 1970’s standards.
