I thought this was great fun. I only heard of it recently and accidentally and am astonished it exists. The title character is a cosmic traveller gone astray; his look is a cross between David Bowie and Jesus Christ - his spiel too, albeit with a touch of steely ruthlessness, amoral survival instinct and the anger of Jesus with the moneylenders - and he's destined to become a god. But he doesn't belong in this time and place so he's attacked by Nature itself - vines and leaves and winds and a sinister human incarnation of it. It's inventive and intelligent and properly creepy and eerie at times. I don't want to spoiler the various neat touches and good developments, but to give you a taste one episode features an excellent sort of were-crow almost as a throwaway bit. It starts off quite good and gets better and wilder as it goes on. But if you can't get along with 70s special effects, forget it.
