Trivia

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 »

Futuristic Law Enforcement Outfit
24 December 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Although Space Patrol is set 500 years beyond the Star Trek TNG series it seems to be as primitive as the 20th century. Our concept of space travel seem to center on the rocket, all the science fiction shows of early television had that concept be it Rocky Jones, Tom Corbett, or even Space Patrol. No one could conceive of a ship like the Starship Enterprise.

Space Patrol has Ed Kemmer and his crew, Lynn Osborn, Ken Mayer, and Nina Bara working for an outfit called United Planets as opposed to Star Trek's United Federation Of Planets. This was a futuristic law enforcement outfit tracking down villains as yet not conceived 20th century standards. In that Space Patrol seems to have anticipated the Star Trek franchise.

It still amazes me though that the computer seems to have no place in science fiction programming of the time. Not on the small screen in a show like Space Patrol or on the big screen are computers even acknowledged.

Like its peers Space Patrol is a museum piece and a lot of indulgence must be given in watching it.
