Trivia

Originally the part of Dragos was offered to actor Ted Cassidy who was best known as Lurch on the original Addams Family television series. In July of 1978, In a rare personal interview Cassidy told how producers offered him the part, but because he had first refusals on a couple of other pilot films, he wasn't able to give the producers a direct answer if he wanted to accept the role. When he finally got back to them, it was too late as they had to begin production and cast Sid Haig in the role. They would have had to recast as Cassidy died in January 1979. See more »

BUCK ROGERS for the younger set..a tv serial

In the tradition of the old 1930's serials CBS hot on the heels of SPACE ACADEMY and ARK 2 and SHAZAM released this program which was similar to BUCK ROGERS and FLASH GORDON. The series featured special effects, daring do all on a tv budget. This show was different from BATTLESTAR GALACTICA and STAR WARS yet capitalized off the craze. The program was the last of a wave of live action shows for CBS that started with KOOKLA FRAN AND OLIE etc. The show ran in a half hour format and was constantly running re runs when fresh episodes were not available. A saturday moring staple for many years..escapist fun for kids. Don't call the JASON the "grey poupon guy" as a kid I liked him like many kids in the 1930's or 1970's reveared ADAM WEST or BUSTER CRABBE.
