Did anyone here ever see the US TV show called "Otherworld?"
First episode:

According to the Youtube channel, it aired in 1985.on CBS.

I was young when I saw it, but thought it was really interesting but weird.
Plus because it was only on TV for a short time, every time I'd try to tell someone else about it,
people would always mistake it for another TV show.

After the internet and Youtube became the way to find weird old stuff someone else besides you could still remember,
I got to re-see the 8 episodes that aired on TV. It was a LOT weirder than I thought, and but this time I recognized
obelisks, pyramids, utopian dystopias with controling governments, and other symbology this site talks about a lot.
Any thoughts?

Did you see both V's (the 1980s version and the 2000-something version)?
I saw parts of both, but enough to to question any aliens bearing "gifts."
What did you think?

i only saw the 80s one in the 80s... i know the 80s one at least was reeking of symbolism. reptilian, human-eating aliens? and that was 83 (i think), far before it was conspiracy du jour by icke and friends.

i ought to rewatch it.

Interesting.
Reptilian theory goes back to the 40's:
"In the 1940s, a non-fiction writer, Maurice Doreal, wrote a pamphlet entitled "Mysteries of the Gobi" which described a "serpent race" that had "bodies like man but...heads...like a great snake" and an ability to take true human form.[11] These creatures also appeared in Doreal's poem, "The Emerald Tablets", in which he claimed the titular tablets were written by "Thoth, an Atlantean Priest king". Barkun asserts that "in all likelihood", Doreal's ideas came from "The Shadow Kingdom", and that in turn, "The Emerald Tablets" formed the basis for David Icke's book, Children of the Matrix.[12]"
