In episode 53 we talk about Gerry Anderson's UFO (1970 )set in the future of 1980's where them pesky aliens are attacking earth but for what reason ( to catch Pokemon or plant them ) will we ever find out.
UFO was the Andersons' first totally live-action TV series. Despite the assumption of many TV station executives, the series was not aimed at children but was intended for an older audience; many episodes featured adult themes such as adultery, divorce, and drug use. Most of the cast were newcomers to Century 21, although star Ed Bishop
had previously worked with the Andersons as a voice actor on Captain Scarlet and The Mysterons.
