Biddy biddy brilliant

Ah Buck Rogers, the tongue-in-cheek staple of early eighties Saturday night ITV. Season one was a dream, not least becausae of Gil Gerard as the out-of-time astronaut and Erin Gray as the foxy Wilma Deering. Some okay special effects for the time and decent storylines make this well worth another look. Just a pity about that pricetag. Give season two a miss (it was so poor despite the cool, enigmatic Hawk), but settle back and reflect on a time of disco-themed space shenanigans as you rocket down memory lane.

Great cult series, shame about being ripped off...

This is one of the all time greats. Simply classic cult television. Of course, the charming and stunning Col. Wilma Deering a.k.a Erin Gray, not only added charm and sophisication to the show, but turned men into giggling boys.

What is every boys dream? Yes, you guessed it, to travel into space and with this show you are able to enjoy every second as if you were there yourself. Simply being able to follow the further adventures of Buck Rogers a.k.a. Gil Gerard on more adventures, flying around the cosmos, with space battles and robots; not forgetting the lovely Wilma, was a boys dream.

I was very fortunate to meet Erin once and she is still just as wonderful and attractive I remembered, all those years ago. I also had a photo taken and she gave me a hug; I did not wash my shirt for a whole week. I can also remember walking around with this stupid grin of my face for weeks and weeks afterwards.

As a child growing up, I can remember watching each episode with excitement and antisipation. Terms like the Earth Defense Directorate became a house hold name and meeting characters like Dr. Theopolis, Dr. Huer and Twiki propelled us into the 25th century where the world was a very different place and nuclear war had all but destroyed the human race.

Some of you will no doubt have your on opinion as to what made this show great or a complete flop. I have to admit however that the second series was (at times), a complete waste of time. Characters like Hawk was such a rediculous character to introduce and searching for the lost, what? humans, in the where, doing what! What was that all about?

However series 1 was brilliant and if I could, I would award six stars. Simply being able to see Erin in those tight lyrca outfits gets my vote. As for series 2, just bear in mind that those tight lycra outfits kept on getting shorter and shorter.

I think the only really disappointment here is itunes. Come on guys, you have this series for quadruple the price of anywhere else. What is that all about? How can you charge so much for series that was created nearly thirty years ago. What a complete rip off.

5 stars for show, 2 stars for iTunes quality

I am aware that this is "archive" TV - however, I have coincidentally recently been witness to the pilot show (the first two episodes here, Awakening) from a non-legit source, and in spite of having PAID for this version on the strength of that, the quality of these episodes is absolutely dire compared to that "other" version.

The price for the entire show is also incredibly prohibitive. I wouldn't be registering this secondary complaint if quality was at least equivalent to what can be obtained from alternative sources... but can we seriously be expected to willingly choose to sacrifice *quality* simply to know that we didn't buck the system?

When are the TV and movies companies going to get this? I am, after all, one of those people who expressly *wishes* to (and is able to) pay for licensed versions of TV shows and movies, and yet issues like this continue to prevail.

Some parts of the pilot story were so dark that as a viewer, I could not discern what was going on (even with the lights off!). Whichever side of the iTunes equation is responsible for this situation needs to sorely reassess their approach to production of these purchases.

So, to recap: great classic 70s show, as far as I got with it (even in spite of the technical limitations) - terrible service from iTunes.
