Original Airdate: 03/15/1974

Happy Sunday! EI and Scoot from  Damian Thomas Films Etc . are back and ready to roll! Join us today as I get completely flustered and can’t do my homework. Hopefully Scoot can pick up the slack!

EI: I know we have been given our directions but, come on, surely the boss can forgive us for this one post. I mean COME ON!!! This was every little kid’s fantasy woman for years and years.

SCOOT: She’s a lovely lady, a bit before my time though. I always prefered She-Ra, now she was a tasty piece of crumpet make no mistake! It was nice of Lee Majors to get his then barely known wife a part in his show, doesn’t it just make you want to grab your special lady and give her a big sloppy kiss? Shame about their divorce in ’82…

 EI:  So, this episode is about some spa – um……… I…. um…. It’s…..

SCOOT: That’s right! We join Austin teaching some newbie astronaut the ropes, but the guy is a complete plum and presses the wrong button and manages to blow up the world or something. Disaster! But fear not, it was only a simulation, and when the space plum takes off his space mask it turns out it’s only bloody space Farrah Fawcet-Majors!

EI: Mission Control and Osca……. whuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut…. it’s really abou…..

SCOOT: Haha, absolutely! I’m just enjoying the whole Majors based chemistry in this episode. You can smell the love eminating from the screen! They’re so full of life. Shame that when Farrah Fawcett passed away in 2009, it was just a few hours before the death of Michael Jackson and nobody really noticed to the point that she wasn’t even included in the Oscars obituary montage… neither was Bea Arthur!!!

EI: We have to remember tha…………. of cours………… we’ll b………….

SCOOT: Good point! I mean, she messed eveything up in the simulation to the point where she was being lambasted by Austin and mission control, yet ten minutes later she’s on a real space mission. It was bound to all go wrong! She has nice hair though, shame about the David Letterman interview she did where she was off her face on hard drugs… allegedly.

EI: I was going to sa………… there’s a har……….. bionic ar….. wh………….

SCOOT: Spot on! Here’s three things I noticed about episode 8:

1. Lee Majors is definitely the greatest zero gravity actor I’ve ever seen!
2. Showing grainy space stock footage simply acts as a reminder that the Majors couple are not in space.
3. Oscar Goldman seems jealous of Steve’s new astronaut lady friend.

The last word goes to Eric Isaacs-Majors. Bring it on home, Sugar Plum!

EI: OK, Scoot. I can’t do this any more I need to go home. It’s…………….. we…………. er…………. I……….
