Storyline

"Guardian of the Safety of the World", private citizen-scientist Captain Video, assisted by his teenage helper The Ranger and an army of Video Rangers, preserves the peace in the far-off future, fighting the evil Dr. Pauli of the Astroidal Society and a bunch of other baddies (Nargola, Mook, Kul, Clysmok). The show appeared nightly Mon-Fri, featured many outlandish weapons and techno-gimmicks, and was run on a minuscule prop budget. Written by Ed Stephan <stephan@cc.wwu.edu>

My first larger-than-life hero
1 October 2006 | by (Western PA, United States) – See all my reviews

Captain Video, flying fearlessly from planet to planet, protecting the universe from evil, introducing a little child to space ships, exotic peoples and worlds, robots, science, and science fiction. What a legacy to the world! Captain Video is the pioneer who made possible Star Trek and Star Wars and countless other flights of the imagination.

The stories were hokey, the special effects were nonexistent, even the Polaris and the Galaxy were obviously little plastic models with sparks coming out their exhausts, but none of that was important. The courage and the excitement of traveling to strange places and meeting exotic people and bravely defending the weak and the helpless were the things that mattered, the things that lasted through the years, the things that inspired the future.
