...of being young, innocent, and taken by the lack of echoes in these caves! I turned 6 years old in 1981, it definitely spurred me onto an interest in Adventure-based Computer Games, which in turn got me programming in the 80's. At 30, I now make my money programming today.
There was always something clean about the production, maybe because those caves were never caves! Excitement at the eventual chase, the "will they or won't they" factor, and looking forward to the next episode!
Thanks for those memories, at a well-dodgy time for TV!
I deny you, the Nidus!
