TV Shows - Buck Rogers in the 25th Century

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century is an American science fiction adventure television series produced by Universal Studios. The series was developed by Glen A. Larson and ran for two seasons, from 1979 - 1981. The feature-length pilot episode for the series was released theatrically several months before the series aired. The film and series were based upon the Buck Rogers character created by Philip Francis Nowlan that had been featured in comic strips and novellas since the 1920s, and on the CBS and Mutual radio networks, airing several times each week from 1932 to 1947.

4 The first season was sometimes fun in a campy, 'Batman-ish' sort of way; but the second season was awful. No Dr. Huer, stupid replacement voice for Twiki (whom I never much liked from the get-go, but I made allowance for, as long as he was voiced by the great Mel Blanc), and Gil Gerard was still not going to be confused with an actor as a result of the changeover. The real kiss of death came when they introduced Roddy McDowell to the cast; nothing against Roddy, whom I always liked, but any series that he was in or joined as a castmember was always guaranteed to have a very short broadcast life. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 8, 2010, 3:52 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Hawk really should have been cool, he had all of the ingedients for it, but somehow he was more of a turkey. The second season did try to be more serious but did they ever find any 'lost tribles of humanity'? They seemed to spend most weeks either ferrying aliens about or searching for fuel. Gerrard's hair was funnier by the week and when he turned into a 'Satyr' in one episode it was actually an improvement, although the curly wig he wore near the end of that episode was the funniest thing I have ever seen on television. -- Submitted By: (thegorillaismine) on July 18, 2010, 11:44 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I was a young teenager when this one came out. But after enduring the first one or two episodes of the second season- even Col. Deering's (Erin Gray) spray-on space suits couldn't keep me around. And the Hawk (Mr. Spock rip-off anyone?) character was just stupid and unnecessary. Thumbs up to whoever submitted the reason "Became a Poor mans Star Trek." That one gets my vote. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 21, 2010, 12:19 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Gil Gerard was apparently always in conflict with the writers and producers in season 1, and was not happy with his wise-cracking character, wanting more serious episodes. This ultimately led to script writers walking out and wholesale changes to the second season. I do actually think that the stories were a lot stronger in the second season, but the new characters let the show down badly. Hawk would constantly state the obvious in a slow grave voice as though to ram the point home (when everyone else had worked it out 5 minutes ago). As for the doddery old Dr. Goodfellow, well, words fail me as to how bad he was and the Admiral was an incompetent fool. As for Buck himself, his ever expanding waistline and out-of-control hair didn't do him any favours. -- Submitted By: (Phil.JS) on September 26, 2009, 3:40 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
8 The complete revamp of the second season was ineffective. Gone was the fun "James Bond in Space" with supporting characters Dr. Huer, Dr. Theopoplis and Princess Ardala. In came a boring "searching for the lost tribles of humanity" arc with cardboard type characters Captain Asmimov, Chricton, Dr. Goodfellow and Hawk. Still can't really determine whose idea this was. -- Submitted By: (msweller) on May 31, 2009, 8:22 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Once the setting moved to the Searcher, it was a different show, and not a good one. The new characters did nothing for me. I hated Hawk. And worst of all, they dropped Tweaky's Mel Blanc voice in favour of some whiny kid voice. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 28, 2009, 9:18 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 One of the most grating television shows of all time, but thanks to Erin Grey- I could not turn this show off as a young kid! But man, oh man was that second season horrible, The guy with the bird head, Hawk, was annoying in a whole new way. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on April 15, 2009, 6:19 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
