Well, you know, I've never met a nice South African.

I wonder if anyone's ever set up a proxy site to make it look like you're from there.
Dream big and bold and daring.

Freakin' "Spitting Image"; I love it...

Someone said to use this: https://hola.org/
But I dunno, I've never had luck with proxy's. They only work to a certain extent...

A paid proxy might be more reliable, if you can find one for South Africa.

Someone told me on the lostmedia wikia where I brought it to their attention, that it was a pay viewing site. So I doubt that they will accept my US located Visa Credit Card.

TV recordings of Episodes 14-16 have emerged on YouTube this past year which is great to see. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQnDcJ ... VSYVK2Q1mQ

Thanks to YouTube's automated Content ID system, I recently discovered that "Interster" apparently used quite a bit of stock music, including much of that eerie "Terminator"-esque ambient music and the oft-used flying theme.

I just watched a couple of minutes, the puppets are remarkably well done facially - I'd say quite Terrahawks like? Clearly quite an ambitious production. Be interesting to find out more about what it was all about and if they were trying to emulate anything else...
