Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Buck Rogers In The 25th Century: The Complete First Series [DVD]  (DVD)This is one of the most memorable sci-fi series made in late 70s. It's good clean camp kitsch macho fun. Gil Gerard is definitive as the smart wise-cracking Buck Rogers and has a dedicated fanbase of fans to this day. The pilot movie, is thankfully presented as it's theatrical release version. Which is the best version because it's edgier.
The basic premise of the series is Buck Rogers, a Nasa Astronaut, is caught up in some kind of cosmic storm that kept him and his space shuttle frozen and presevered in space for 500 years. He is thawed out by The Draconians who happen accross his floating shuttle and the adventure begins from there..
Stand out episodes include: The Movie, Planet Of The Slave Girls, The Plot To Kill A City, Vegas In Space,Cosmic Wiz Kid, Space Vampire, A Dream Of Jennifer and many more. All of them in fact are good.
