Ironically, the first season gets the respect and this is regarded as silly nonsense. But good SF is all about the script and check out the writers. Three episodes by Terrance Feely (The Prisoner, UFO, The Avengers, Thriller) three episodes by Johnny Bryne (Dr.Who) Three episodes by Donald James (UFO, The Champions, etc)two episodes by Tony Barwick (UFO, Captain Scarlet, oft regarded as Gerry Anderson's finest writer)and contributions from Terrance Dicks (Dr.Who) and Pip and Jane Baker (Dr.Who). There's even a bona fide SF author named Thom Keyes who contributes an episode. Not bad! The series seems to be remembered soley for the three episodes written by Producer Fred Freiberger under the pen name Charles Woodpecker or something equally silly! Mind you, Rules of Luton is an adequate rip off of the classic SF tale The Arena, which had been done before Star Trek (on The Outer Limits) and would be done again (on Blakes 7, for a start!). So, despite Freidberger;s bad habit of doing his own script editing and adding cheesy joke scenes, and despite his even worse habit of penning the occasional episode (Space Warp is the worst!)the series is actually very good! Barwick excells with AB Chrysalis, a suspenseful and thoughtful story, Feely is brilliant with New Adam, New Eve, and even more fun with Bringers of Wonder, while James delivers a classic with Journey to Where and gems like Seed of Destruction, The Immunity Syndrome (with its brilliant tale of a dealy but misunderstood alien intelligence) and Devil's Planet, all coming out of left feild as well.
What it lacks in atmosphere, it makes up for with good plots and good scripting. A vastly underrated series. Scrape off the cheese and enjoy!

By Mark on Feb. 2 2003
This set shows more of the erratic writing that dominated the second season. We also begin to see that they were filming episodes back to back to cut corners. That is why they would have an episode that would feature Koenig and Maya and we would just see a glimpse of Tony and Helena back on the base and then the next episode would feature Tony and Helena and Koenig was off on an Eagle somewhere and we would just see him for a minute or two and Alan was only in every other episode. The great shots of the ships from the first season have been cut way down by this time. Of course the worse thing about the second season was the writing. Following is my breakdown for the episodes.
The rules of Luton- A silly episode that borrows from Star Trek's Arena. The monsters are terrible and the action is minimal, but Koenig and Maya share some of their past with each other and I always liked it when they filmed on location.
The mark of Archanon- A decent story about a aliens who tried to be peaceful but they could suffer from a sickness that made them have to kill. The aliens look quite bad, but Alan gives a good showing as he takes to the younger alien like a big brother.
Brian the brain- This episode is just downright horrible. A computer that likes to say woo-hoo a lot. This episode has very few redeeming values and it is probably one of the three worst of the series.
New Adam, New Eve- This is definitely the best episode of the set. An alien claims to be the creator and he wisks Koenig, Maya, Helena and Tony away to a new eden. Of course, he is not who he says he is. This episode is similiar to Star Trek's Who mourns for adonis, but I really like this one. The story is interesting and it moves along very well.

Year 2 of Space:1999 continues in Set 6, and if you were hoping for an improvement from Set 5, don't hold your breath! Though cheese and ham are served just as much as the previous collection, it's still a lot of mindless fun. There are a few moments here and there that remind of fans of Year 1, some insightful lines and illusions. But don't kid yourself. Year 2 has tons of Sci-Fi cliches and steals from a show that Space:1999 tried to challenge, Star Trek.
"The Rules of Luton", of course, is a Star Trek episode in disguise with some dated looking aliens, was one of my favorites as a kid. Of course, now, it's totally ridiculous.
"The Mark of the Archanon" is not too bad. The costumes from the guests leave very little for the imagination and some bad audio dubbing. Though, Nick Tate has a bigger role in this one.
"Brian the Brain", ugh! never thought a stupid robot could be filled with so much ham! His voice is a crossover between Woody Allen and a bad Jerry Lewis impersonation. Some good effects can't really salvage this one.
"New Adam, New Eve" is good for the main characters, but Magus is so far from an impression of God it's unintentionally funny. and the mutants, ugh, why are Space:1999 monsters so terrible?
"AB Chrysallis" is tolerable and pedestrian at times. But those bouncing balls and decent effects keep your mind off other plot holes. And the chlorine atomsphere for the aliens is a nice touch.
"Catacombs on the Moon" leaves more questions than answers. Like, how can there be catacombs on the moon without water? But, that's the least of Alpha's worries. The second class characters get a bunch more lines than the regulars, and Maya has 2 obligatory "shape-shifting" scenes.
Casual sci-fi and other viewers may not be able to tolerate Space:1999, but for an hour or two of mindless escapism, this may hust hit the spot.
