John Kenneth Muir was just a little boy when he saw Dragon's Domain for the first time. The spine-tingling fright left a permanent mark on him and led to his career as a film critic and author, specializing in genre film and television. His books about Space: 1999 (both fiction and non-fiction) stand as a testament to his love for the series. In this episode, John breaks down his fascination with the future as depicted in 1999 as Richard and Jamie take a deep dive into the mailbag, a musical FAB Fact, and Randomeister Chris Dale meets up with an old friend for a birthday party!
