Needle in the Hay - Alias Smith and Jones by bluemeany

Hello
New to the fandom here:-) And I come with a music video.

My Dad showed me AS&J on VHS tapes as a kid in the 90s. I remember it being about two happy-go-lucky heroes; full of fun and sunshine. It was very cool.

Aged 6, Kid Curry was always my favourite.

However, British TV is showing a re-run at the moment and now... well ...Pete Duel is definitely who I'm watching. Similarly, the whole programme has a complexity and shades of darkness that weren't there before. It is still, however, very cool.

The video tries to convey what I see now.

Oh, I like this. Nicely done. It's good to see these boys in a vid. I like how you did this, giving a classic show a shiny new look. Thanks.

Oh this is great, so happy to see a vid for these two. I've actually been half meaning to make one for months now, but it wouldn't have been this beautiful. It was a really great song choice and yeah, although it didn't necessarily show the general tone of the show, it totally captured the undertones:)

Welcome! Awesome video. I don't see a lot of focus on the undertones so very well done!

It's a long time ago I watched the show, so of course I had to watch your vid! I don't remember the series as dark as it is in your vid, but it is a very inventive and creative vid, thanks a lot for it!

What a great blend of contemporary and classic. You chose your scenes wisely. Well done

This is awesome! AS&J has really been on my mind a lot lately, so your vid here has inspired me to start yet another rewatch. I can't get over how timeless this show is and how it's still inspiring people to make things like this fanvid. Lovely, lovely work! Thanks for sharing, too -- I was so in the mood for a new look at my old boys. :)

Ha ha, dating myself here, but... I used to watch the re-runs on TV as a kid, over and over and over. And over. :) In more recent years, since I got the DVDs, I've gone through them at least three times; well, the ones up through the 'Pete episodes' anyway. Nothing at all against Roger Davis - it's just that I've never had the heart to keep watching after Pete's last episode.

Always good to see a "new" fan for AS*J. Nice video!
