Another thing I watched at Hulu today was an episode of Space Pirate: Captain Harlock.
I saw some of this series in the mid-1970s on a local station here that rented time to Japanese programming.
I loved the series then. But the 1970s were a bad, bad time for TV, especially animation. So Harlock was a revelation and a savior.
Today, it didn’t hold up. The animation — while still stylish — was very limited and was what Chuck McCann once described as “illustrated radio.”
I’m wondering how much more TV I grew up with and loved will turn up feeling … old?
There are series I planned to buy as DVD sets. But Hulu is showing me that would be a waste of money — and re-watching them a sad waste of time.
