Back when Radio Shack (then a div. of Tandy Corp.) was a large and growing nationwide and even worldwide retail chain, they obtained the rights to the brand name "Space Patrol" for their toy-level walkie-talkies, even using kids in space helmets in their ads for these products. This was back in the '60's and undoubtedly had to do with the still "fresh" recognition of this TV series. 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)
