entertaining and watchable
Although I didn't like this series as much as Battlestar Galactica which was out at the same time, as a kid the more scifi series on TV the better. And I would never pass up the chance each week to see the beautiful Erin Gray. I also thought it was neat when they had one episode where they had the original Buck Rogers, Buster Crabbe, make a special appearance as an old fighter pilot.

It was too bad that they changed the format of the series in the second season, but it was still watchable.

Trivia

Johnny Harris arranged the opening theme music which was composed by Stu Phillips. The first 45 seconds where Buck is spinning is an original Johnny Harris composition up until Phillips main theme starts.


Quotes

Narrator: For 500 years, Captain William "Buck" Rogers has been miraculously preserved, frozen by temperatures beyond imagination. Now, in Earth year 2491, he is rudely awakened by the sinister forces of the Draconian Realm.


Goofs

Throughout the series, there are many sequences when Buck and/or Wilma would take off in one configuration of a starfighter and then different cuts would have them sitting side by side and then a moment later one in front of the other. There would also be different ships (sky sled) where they would take off in one type of ship,exterior shots show them as they fly through space in a totally different looking ship, and then either land in the same ship they took off in, or in another different looking ship.


Crazy Credits

In a few non-consecutive episodes toward the end of the first season, the soundtrack for the opening credits is slightly different. Though the narration is spoken by the same actor and has the same wording, it is delivered here with slightly different pacing. This different version of the opening credits also has a different recording of the music, easily identifiable by a slightly more bombastic bass guitar in the 2491-era portion of the title sequence.


Alternate Versions

The episodes "Planet of the Slave Girls" and "Flight of the War Witch" were initially aired as two-hour specials and were later re-edited into two-parters. The 2004 DVD release retains the original two-hour format for these episodes.
