    it’s about time
    it’s about space
    about two men in the strangest place
    wait’ll they see
    what is in sight
    is it good luck or
    is it good night
    past the fighting minutemen
    past the . . . .

    Memory fails. “Roman knights” cannot be what comes next.
    You had a caller talking about a TV show with cave-men. That’s the beginning of the theme song of what I’m guessing was called It’s About Time. Astronauts in the time of the cavemen. Lots of mastodon jokes.

    Gail is right and we got this email from Jack D. Teague confirming Gail’s comments:

    “Listening to Slice of SciFi #114 Voicemail Show, and I think that the caveman TV show the caller from Phoenix, NY, might have been, ‘It’s About Time. It was a show about two astronauts that broke the time barrier and landed in caveman times. In the first season they lived with the cave people, in the second season, somehow, the astronauts got their ship fixed and came back to the current time and a couple of the cave people stowed away. So the second season would be close in concept to the currently in development caveman series. I think one needs be about 50 to remember this thing, soooo. . . you youngsters likely won’t remember this thing since I don’t think it ever went into syndication.

    I remember that show “It’s About Time”! It made it out here in Australia. I grew out of the target audience in the early seventies, and I haven’t seen it since, but now I have the theme tune running through my head (Argh! must evict it…Aha! Doctor Who theme! Ahh ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Actually, the reason for this comment is that the Melbourne International Film Festival in July/Aug will be showing Fido and Black Sheep, which I’m looking forward to thanks to your show. The movie Teeth was mentioned at the launch; it sounds like it’ll be fun to watch.

    Sam is right. The caveman show in question was called “It’s About Time”. You would have to be at least 50 to remember it since it was on in 1965 or 1966 and never rerun. I was in elementary school at the time (grade 4 or 5?) and remember to this day (I am 50).

    As a kid, our favorite part was the theme song, which went:

    It’s about time
    It’s about space
    blah blah blah.

    Our version went:

    It’s about time,
    It’s about space,
    It’s about time I slap your face….

    Ahh. the memories. This was about the same time a superhero show was on called “Mr. Fantastic”. Pretty cheesy and lasted one season.

    Whoops, must be showing my age. I should have said Jack Teague is right. Sam was just relaying Jack’s comments.

    My bad.
