Blogging past futures--Space: 1970

Over on my blogroll, you'll notice a link to Space: 1970.  In addition to the British series Space: 1999 the blog references in its title, it covers many more of the TV shows and movies from the late 1960s to the early 1980s.  It has entries on shows I vaguely remember from childhood: Japanese cartoons like Star Blazers, Saturday morning kid shows such as Ark II, prime-time series including Buck Rogers, and theatrical releases from The Black Hole to Logan's Run.  In addition to movies and TV shows, Space: 1970 looks at some of the science fiction-related music of the era, as well as the great promotional tie-ins (i.e., toys) that came out of the 1970s and '80s

Not only that, but the author was kind enough to link to Super Galactic Dreadnought on his blogroll. So I want to return the favor and encourage readers to go check out the Space: 1970 blog.  It's a wonderful walk down memory lane, and I guarantee you'll stumble across a television show or movie you thought you had forgotten.  From the mainstream to the obscure, you'll enjoy what you find, and you might even be surpised by what turns up--anyone else remember Quark?
