THE PLOT:

The year is 1987 and America launches the last of it's deep space prob, Ranger 3 and it's lone astronaught William "Buck" Rogers are thrown out of their trajectory which freezes his life support system which leaves him frozen in time for 500 years.

Returning home after the Dracolians thawed him out, he finds a world he never imagined. A world in which most of the population was wiped out by a third world war. Everyone he knew or loved is dead. Now he has to make due while defending the Earth from people who would destroy it like Princess Ardalla and Kaleel.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

This is one of my favorite series from when I was a kid, this and BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. The effects were cool, the monsters when they had monsters were cool. The cast does a great job, supporting cast members of Tim O'Connor and Mel Blanc do great jobs. The villians are cool, let's face it it's cool. I wish there were more monsters in the series, but what's perfect. I give it...8 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

Again I agree with Zedd. Gil does a great job as Buck and I can't imagine anyone with his skill, his carisma or his wise cracks. I wish they'd didn't use so much stock footage and the reuse of some models. But other then that, it was a perfect series and I too give it...8 STARS.

+ CAST (The cast does a great job.)
+ GEUST STARS (Some powerful stars guest star.)
+ CREATURE EFFECTS (Some impressive cast.)
+ ACTING (Some powerful performances.)
+ EFFECTS (Some impressive space effects.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- STOCK FOOTAGE (All of stock footage in the space battle.)
- REUSING OLD SHIPS (The reuse of old ships.)

...AND FINALLY...

- NEEDS MORE MONSTERS (Alway thought it could use more monsters.)
