Thrills! Action! Adventure!
1 February 2005 | by (Calgary AB Canada) – See all my reviews

"....Buzz Corey, Commander-in-Chief of the SPACE PATROL!" I was eight years old when my Mother bought our first television set. Space Patrol was already halfway through its run on Detroit television, Channel 7, WXYZ, the ABC station if I remember correctly. Saturday morning was time for Space Patrol, my first favourite television programme. Buzz Corey was the perfect hero: stalwart, honest, dignified, mature, courageous: the apotheosis of all virtues. I even named my dog after him.

All things must end and little boys grow up; yet Space Patrol (at least as remembered) remains the standard by which all adventure entertainment is judged. The lifelong interest in science fiction which many of us have may be traced to this primitive space opera.

Boys need heroes and far more than Tom Corbett Space Cadet, Buzz Corey provided an example and a needed role model. If all little boys could grow up to be Buzz Corey our planet would be a better place.

I at least owe Space Patrol a great debt.
