The Sea Voyage?

No, but I think you win for at least sharing a guess. It’s ‘The Voyage of the Mimi’, an educational PBS series that was pretty widely used in grade school curriculums to teach certain scientific concepts.

Ok all yours, Frodo!

Sorry, no. 
It's a sci-fi programme.

Lexx or Farscape?

It looks weird enough for both, though I think Lexx had worse picture quality (and I've seen maybe 5 episodes of Farscape)

If you had to pick one of them... which would you pick?   :confused:

But I'm too late, Sinitrena, got it first.  (nod)

I had all these great Farscape screenshots ready... and now I can't use them.   :shocked:
Excuse me while I go and sulk for a while.   :tongue:

Yep, it's the 'slightly' weird Farscape.  I've been watching the repeats on Sci Fi Channel recently. 
But I was sure that first shot was bizarre enough to throw people off the scent.   :wink:


CRICHTON:  Told you I was taller than you!  See?  My head is above yours, and I'm literally looking down at you.
D'ARGO:  The only reason you're head is above mine, is because you're feet are not touching the floor!  I can easily rectify that.  Would you prefer your big head to stay up there, while your tiny little feet are replaced on the floor?
CRIGHTON:  I'd prefer my feet to stay attached to my body.
D'ARGO:  Gah, you're no fun!   *drops Crighton

I don't know the show, but that full on looks like a Twi'lek (from behind).

I'm sorry!!!!!  :-* The ceiling gave it away. Thiy screamed either sci-fi or industrial chic and sci-fi seemed more likely...
You do seem to love the show. I tried to get into it but didn't. If you want, you can try to convince me to give it a second chance? (You can even show me some more screenshots?)


But to get on with the show here, how about this masterpiece:



Sorry for the quality, this show is old. (And I'm not sure how well it is known internationally.)

Looks a very old sci-fi serie, so... Sapphire & Steel?

Nope. But very old sci-fi, yes.

They show fine for me. (Maybe a little (temporary?) glitch with the free hosting I used).

I uploaded to a different service again, just to make sure:

Screenshots are back, thanks Sinitrena.   :smiley:

Don't know what the programme is, though.

That's Raumpatrouille Orion, of course! Wonderful early Sci-Fi series!

Someone else can take my turn, I usually don't read this thread, was just by coincidence that I saw the screen.
