Fun and interesting early sci-fi program
3 June 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

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)
