During the height of the 3-D craze in the early-1950s, "Space Patrol" broadcast television's first experiment with three-dimensional imagery, in the 1953 episode "The Theft of the Rocket Cockpit." Viewers were encouraged in advance to buy specially packaged Ralston-Purina cereals that included 3-D viewing glasses. See more »
This cheap production is like most early space exploration programs. Really impoverished sets, a slack-jawed hero, his goofy sidekick, and a quick pace with a total disregard towards realism. For sci-fi buffs, this could provide some interest as being one of the first space-exploration programs. From the ones I've seen, its also the most entertaining. Whereas "Flash Gordan" (the 50s TV program) and "Rocky Jones" were dull and sappy, this just cuts to what everyone wants to see (meaning no distracting romantic interludes). Its difficult to find and I wouldn't mind seeing some DVD company releasing it, at least in a single disc containing the best episodes. (6/10)
