What is this? It seems right up my alley: nerdy shit from the eighties/nineties. It's almost weird to me that I never heard of it back then.

It's the best thing. It was on the Discovery channel, but it was from Australia originally I believe. Do some youtubing. Henry Tenenbaum crushes it.

I have so many boxes of VHS cassettes somewhere with DS9, TNG and Beyond 2000 episodes all jumbled together. Space Above and Beyond too, but that's still a sore subject with me.

I believe there were two versions, an Australian version that started way back, and an American version starting in the 90's. I'm going to guess Drew is talking about the 90's version overall if only because the host of that version was a local (Bay Area) TV reporter. It was pretty damn awesome in a pre-tech website era of television. I'd still think there is a place for it frankly.
