I have to confess, the Russian commentary is very frustrating but great to see it at least. Hopefully it will not reduce the chances of the show being picked up by a British tv company.

Sorry Larry but whenever I see your bow tie I am half expecting it to start spinning around!

Rick, when we filmed this show the key word was "dignity." Always Dignity. No spinning bow tie gags. We wanted to follow the formal fashion sense created by the show "Downton Abbey."

Hi Larry! I was in a couple of the episodes — assuming I wasn't lost on the cutting room floor! — and I have to agree with everything you said. It was tough work and long days for everyone, especially Ainsley, Tori, Cole and Ben. The shooting schedule was very tight and the four of them were always pulling up to my house tired from a long drive, then getting their game faces on for another 4-6 hours of shooting what will probably turn into 5 minutes of video, then off again in the van to another State. This was hard work and a labor of love for all involved! Like you I hope it turns into a vehicle to attract new enthusiasts to space collecting!

When they came to shoot the second time Ainsley told me that they were green lit for a second season, and in fact we shot an episode for it. Whether the second season sells may be another matter.

To those attending Spacefest, there will be a showing of the first episode of Space Dealers on Saturday at noon. The showing is free to all who attend. There will be a Q&A afterwards with the cast.

I’m metering consumption to draw out the fun but first episode was great.

I’d been thinking Netflix release was U.K. only until today so what a great Friday evening treat.

Well done!

Thank you. The following episodes keep getting better.

Now the objective is to develop enough of an audience in order to shoot a second season. We need help from everybody here to make that happen.

After hearing about this show for so long, it was a pleasure to binge watch it on Netflix today. I found it much better than expected and it was nice to see some collectors familiar from cS.

Although I liked all the dealers, I found the rivalry/competitiveness element a little trying. I know television producers like to create a "back story" to keep it interesting but I thought it all terribly false. I'm sure in real life they're all good friends!

Also, some of the "finds" looked staged — come on, did they really discover a 40k Sokol spacesuit in an unsold 500 dollar auction box?

That said, I hope there's a second series!

Just watched episode 1 through 3: will catch the rest tomorrow. Entertaining and interesting in equal measure. It's good to see Larry and some of the collectSPACE community in the flesh!

My wife and I have now watched all six episodes on Netflix here in the UK. It was great viewing and nice to see a bunch of people I’ve come to know through my own passion for collecting over the last 20 years or so.

I so hope there are more seasons made... Great job Larry!!

I wonder whether the show will spawn some spin off merchandise. I want a Larry McGlynn bow tie: if it spins around all the better!

Hello everyone, this is Cole from Space Dealers. Thank you all for watching our show. We hope that you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it. Space is cool - and fun. If we can both entertain people that do not know much about the space program and add a little education along the way, then we will have achieved mission objectives.

I wholeheartedly agree Cole, especially when that edutainment includes exposing new audiences to collectSPACE.

'Space Dealers' brings the space memorabilia market to reality TV

Two years after it launched into a broadcast orbit around the world, "Space Dealers" has landed in the United States.

The reality TV show, which follows the exploits of three NASA-obsessed space memorabilia sellers, began streaming on Netflix in the U.S. and UK on Friday (Feb. 1). The six-part series, produced by WAGTV, first aired in 2017 in Australia and has in the interim been seen across Europe and Russia.

Hi Cole. Good to have you onboard. What took you so long?

Can we soon count Torie amongst Robert's flock.... assuming she is not already a collectSPACE accolite?

Binged all six episodes yesterday and had a lot of fun. Highly amused to see myself briefly shown twice (and my wife once) during the ASF Space Rendezvous clips.

Just watched this series on Netflix (US). Wow, is there a lot of great and amazing items not only featured but in the background.

Unfortunately, I can also see why the program didn't go beyond the single season.

Quite enjoyable for a space geek to view.

I watched the first episode last night. I really enjoyed it. The closing scene with Larry and Patty was priceless. I will continue watching the rest of the week. I hope there are more seasons to come. I'm urging everyone I know to watch the show.

What a fun series! Thank you for making this — like many I felt like a "where's Waldo" episode, looking in back rounds for the various other space items collectors had in their possession.

I finished all six episodes this week and I enjoyed it and I had fun. The money being thrown around was well beyond my levels so it was fantasy TV for me. I would have really enjoyed seeing some more wide angles and scans of the home collections you visited.

Very shocked that experienced Space Dealers would take the risks you guys did on items without authentication and provenance. Me thinks there was lots of "artistic license" to ratchet up the suspense and perhaps it was the producers' money?? I for one would never drop ten grand on anything signed unless Steve Zarelli was on speed dial and could give me a preliminary thumbs up or down. I have to say the dumpster divers in Florida do dress much more formal than around my place. It must be the warm weather.

A few times I noticed some file footage edits where I had to be careful not to get my eyelashes caught in the ceiling fan. Talking about a Saturn V rocket — showing footage of the F1's in the launch and then the screen fades to an Atlas rocket flying vertical through the screen while you guys narrate the Saturn V story and then back to an actual Saturn V after it cleared the tower. Better do advance screenings of each episode here on collectSPACE to catch the technical stuff before it goes out to the masses.

Next season on your way to film the UK think about a stop in Canada on the way home. I'm sure Chris Hadfield would take you guys out for a Tim Hortons coffee and play his guitar for you. Great job!

If you keep looking, in Episode 4 Tori buys a landing gear support strut from the Russian LK from me. In Episode 3 I buy some fantastic autographed Sokol gloves from Tori. So there are some Russian/Soviet treasures on the show.

This piece has been in my collection for many years, and appears to possibly be a prototype as it has some small differences from the ones on the LKs currently on display in Russia. Enjoy.

Just to update, after watching (finally!) the show it looks like they may have chosen to pull together shoots that were originally intended for Season 2 with those from Season 1 to make the current season. Not sure if this means there is still enough footage to make a Season 2 or if would head out to shoot some more if a second season is ordered for broadcast. I hope so, it would be great to see everyone again! — Martin

Just got through watching all 6 episodes. Great series and obviously took a lot of time and effort to film. It was nice to finally see some of the people behind the posts I’ve been reading here over the past 2 decades. The show has actually sparked an interest to visit one of the upcoming shows.

By the way, all of you seem very talented and knowledgeable about valuations of collections. Do any of you do that type of work?

Thank you for the accolades. It was hard work and we, the crew, sincerely appreciate all of your comments.

The answer is yes. Lot's of valuations over the years.

Loved the show, and thought it was very well done. Binged watched today and fingers crossed for more seasons. If I had to choose the coolest pieces, it's a toss up between Apollo 14 camera clamp and the Apollo 17 Rover map. But everything had a very cool factor and all the actor/collectors were terrific!!

Good fun. I hope there will be a 2nd season! I really enjoyed looking over their shoulders at the stuff in the background. I did recognise some things I have in my own collection.
