'The Cape' TV show

Postby SpaceCanada » Sat Jul 23, 2016 10:26 pm

Way back in 1997 there was a TV show called 'The Cape', about astronauts training for and going on shuttle missions. There is some drama and stuff you would never see happening in real life, but it is light and fun and entertaining - to me, at least. It was aired at the worst possible timeslot and I used to record it on VHS to watch it the next day. I just found it on YouTube if anyone is interested in watching it:

A few episodes are missing, two of which I used to have recorded but lost in the move when I got married. C'est la vie.

I loved that show. It was a pity it didn't last. I was hoping they would eventually release it on DVD so I could buy the set. I even have a T-shirt that they sold with the show logo on it. I will check it out on Youtube. Thanks.

Someone on the CollectSpace forum was selling DVDs from his old VHS copies of the complete series. I don't remember the show being on at all, originally.
I bought one of those (not great but watchable quality) sets and really liked a lot of it. The best one, I thought, was them finding a Soyuz with a dead crew inside and realizing it'd been up there for years and the Soviets had never told anyone about it at the time...

I just acquired a new set of DVDs (unofficial) with better resolution and the missing episodes from my previous set (and YouTube). I can now watch it on our TV without making my eyes twitch. The audio isn't quite as good, however. I'll take what I can get. Hurray!
