Hier sah ich bei den beiden ersteren die erste Folge, bei Cannonball Folge 38:
„Sea Hunt is an American action adventure television series that aired in syndication from 1958 to 1961 and was popular for decades afterwards. The series originally aired for four seasons, with 155 episodes produced. It stars Lloyd Bridges as former Navy diver Mike Nelson, and was produced by Ivan Tors.“
„Space Command was a Canadian children’s science fiction television adventure series, broadcast on CBC Television in 1953 and 1954, the first time the network aired its own dramatic series. Created by Alfred Harris, the series focused on the activities of young space lieutenant Frank Anderson (Robert Barclay) aboard the space ship XSW1, along with his crewmate Phil Mitchell (James Doohan, best known as Scotty on Star Trek) and XSW1 captain Steve Cassel (Harry Geldard). Their missions dealt with various space exploration and science subjects, including sunspots, space medicine, and the search for extraterrestrial life.“
„Cannonball is a British/Canadian adventuredrama series starring Paul Birch and William Campbell, and aired on CBC Television in Canada, ABC Weekend TV in the United Kingdom, and in syndication in the United States. Produced by Normandie Productions and ITC Entertainment, the series‘ interiors were filmed at Canadian Film Industries Limited, a studio in Canada. Exteriors were shot in and around Toronto.„
Space Command ist nun wirklich in der Ecke zweier Wohnzimmer abgedreht worden; Sea Hunt ist da schon ein Budgetwunder (der Männlichkeit). Cannonball thematisiert Schutzgelderpressungen, ohne sie irgendwie so zu nennen, Phänomen „Taken“.
