Remember PROJECT U.F.O.? That was the TV series based on the cases in the USAF's "Project Blue Book" files. My recollections of it are faint, since I last saw a full episode back in the 1978-79 timeframe when it aired. However, I do remember being inordinately fascinated as a child by its less-than-outrageous approach to the subject matter.
Looking back, that was the Jack Webb influence in the show. It is difficult to watch the intro to Season 1 and not think "DRAGNET but with flying saucers". Season 2 opens a bit more ominously AND dramatically (and adds Col. Flagg from M*A*S*H to the cast), but I imagine it was more of the same. Still, you have to give them credit for sticking to their format a lot better than most science-fiction programs of the era did. I am sure the second season of PROJECT U.F.O. was more of a success than GALACTICA: 1980.
It looks like there are a couple of full episodes (in parts) on the video sites. Should I? And do you have any memories of the series, fond or otherwise?
