yeah, but you can not download it

But it is cool that, at the least, you can watch it.

I used to watch it ALL the time as a kid. I wonder if Sci-Fi channel ever thought of bringing that show back. It would certainly be better than Flash Gordon.
Yes I remember it vividly. My local TV station used to play the TOS reruns, Buck Rodgers, and battlestar Galactica; back-to-back on saturday evenings.. I loved them.

I think the best show was where they had Buster Crabbe cameoed as a retired Starfighter pilot named "Commander Gordon" and he told Gerard that "We're from different times... I was doing that sort of thing before you were born..."

"You think so Gordon?"

"Young man I KNOW so..."

That was probably the best episode of the series.

The worst thing you can say about Buck Rodgers is that it suffered from a terminal dose of "Glen A. Larson-itis." Crappy scripts, 1970's el cheapo set design... the best thing about the series was the cast and the effects by Heartland/Universal. Too bad the rest of the series didn't measure up.

For it's time, the effects and sets weren't bad at all. I agree it did suffer from "Battlestar Galataica-1970's" syndrome. Gil's macho acting didn't help either, he was the poor man's Kirk...lol.

BSB was the early 80's, but yeah both shows did suffer from Larson.

lol, as a kid, I love Twiggy. Oddly enough, Joey Lawrence had the same hair style as Twiggy.

I liked Dr. Theopolis, he knew way more than he let on. That episode with all the AI's like him was cool. I think Buck was on trial in that one.
