Editorial Reviews

Blast off to the 25th century with Buck Rogers, one of the most popular sci-fi heroes of all time! When 20th century astronaut William “Buck” Rogers (Gil Gerard) is awakened – 500 years after a deep space disaster – to an Earth in recovery from nuclear war, he must join Colonel Wilma Deering (Erin Gray) to lead the crew of the starship Searcher against a galaxy of evil from the past, present and faraway future. Now with all 21 action-packed Season One episodes of the epic series the Associated Press called “razzle-dazzle good fun,” and featuring phenomenal guest stars including Jamie Lee Curtis and Julie Newmar, you can join these legendary intergalactic crime fighters for an adventure you won’t forget!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buck is Best! Gil is Great! July 16, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
If you are one of those who takes movies (and anything else) too seriously; one who can't simply enjoy something for what it is - entertainment, then you won't like this movie. If you can "let your hair down," "lighten up" and have a good time while simply enjoying a movie for what it is - entertainment, then you will like Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. This was the pilot for the excellent and fun Buck Rogers TV series and was also shown theatrically. How anyone could not like Gil Gerard is beyond me. After buying and watching this movie again, I can not understand why it was not more of a "hit," why Gil did not become more famous and why we did not seem him in many more movies after Buck Rogers. The man had great charisma on screen. Personally, I find Buck Rogers to be every bit as entertaining as all of the Star Wars movies - perhaps because they did not take themselves so seriously with Buck Rogers. It was meant to be fun. I see Buck Rogers as "James Bond Goes To Space." Gil Gerard as Buck Rogers is sly, witty, charming and every bit as talented and handsome as Harrison Ford in the Star Wars movies. Gil Gerard should have been a bigger star. He was incredible and Buck Rogers was meant to be fun - which it was. So, if you want to go back into time (or ahead to the 25th century), do yourself a favor and buy this video (as well as other Buck Rogers videos available via and enjoy a guilty pleasure. If you are already a Gil Gerard fan or Buck Rogers fan, what are you waiting for? This movie and the other Buck Rogers videos are a treasure in my collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Season That Made This Show A Smash! November 23, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This 1979-80 Season of BUCK ROGERS is awesome as well as the season that made this show popular and an instant smash on NBC in the late 70's, but what I dont understand is why is Universal re-releasing this Science-Fiction drama on DVD as an individual season box set aside from the fact that I hated the abbreviated 2nd Season of BUCK ROGERS which tanked, especially since since that season sucked having no more Dr. Elias Huer(Tim O'Connor), too many changes with too many new faces and different plots and stories that were no longer interesting as opposed to the 1st Season of this show which evidently resulted in a sharp decrease in ratings leading to this shows cancellation in the Summer of 1981.

Perhaps Universal's reason for re-releasing BUCK ROGERS on this individual DVD box set of Season 1 in todays struggling economy is to help compensate for all the flaws, freezing, and skipping that the 2-sided discs on the BUCK ROGERS: The Complete Series DVD box set released in November of 2004 had by re-releasing this show on Single sided discs just like Universal did with both KNIGHT RIDER & MIAMI VICE.

Overall, it was interesting seeing guest starring appearances in this 1979-1980 Season like
*Roddy McDowell in the "Planet Of The Slave Girls" episode

*Jamie Lee Curtis who is known for her role as the happless victim(Laurie Strode)in the movie John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN guest starring in the "Unchained Woman" episode

*James Luisi in the "Vegas In Space" episode after his co-starring days as Becker's hard-nosed superior officer(Lt.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good 80's Sci Fi TV Entry March 29, 2003
Buck Rogers is a Glen Larsen production made after Battlestar Galactica, and in many ways has that similar late-70's post-Star Wars feel to it. Unfortunately, the special effects were not quite up to the same spectacular level as seen on Galactica.
Buck Rogers is fun sci fi. Buck is a late 80's kind of guy who's space shuttle was frozen in an accident. Revived, he is now in a post-hollocaust future where nobody trusts him. So Buck sets out to re-introduce disco to these backwards, stuffy inhabitants of future earth. Well, sort of...
The theme song for the feature-length movie is fabulous, although the opening credits are a bit odd for a sci fi show (a bunch of disco gals (and Erin Gray) sprawling all over the name "Buck Rogers" and going in for passionate kisses with a semi-conscious Gil Gerard), and it sometimes leaves me wondering who came up with that idea. A shortened, instrumental version of the music was used in subsequent episodes, but I absolutely love the original... "Far beyond this world I've known, far beyond this time..." Great stuff!
Quite simply, this is a must have for sci fi fans who like to have fun while they watch (in other words, if you live and breathe dark sci fi like the X-Files and such, this probably is not for you).
Other great sci fi shows from this era included the above mentioned Battlestar Galactica (excellent!), Space: 1999 (a curiosity, to say the least), the Black Hole (Disney's attempt to cash in on Star Wars, but more like a throwback to Forbidden Planet. Very uneven. Hard to hate, hard to like), and the often-overlooked movie The Shape of Things to Come (recently released on DVD, this is a very mixed bag. Sometimes feels like Logan's Run, sometimes feels like over-discoed Buck Rogers. Throw in some campy robots and some questionable acting, and you'll know why this one disappeared at the box office. Still, I kind of like it...)

As popular as Buck Rogers was during the late 70s, I never understood why this series was cancelled after only two seasons.

What's the point of this set?
I agree with Eric. I would like to see the original pilot as well. Perhaps that now that you can stream the true pilot from netflix, that maybe they will indeed include the actual pilot. One can only hope. And for this price, if I find that the original 96 minute pilot is included, I will pay the... Read More
