The first month of 2015 is over and I have fallen off the diet wagon again! I also did it in a spectacular way, because if one is going to break their diet resolution, it might as well be for a three course, calorie laden meal which includes chocolate brownies, chocolate sauce and double cream.

So, I did a new SF Obscure on the Canadian series, THE STARLOST. It features space Amish, men in orange leotards doing dance gymnastics to other men playing music on water glasses. It also has an episode about giant bees. This was the early 70’s so long mustaches and hairy chests abound.
