Quotes

Announcer: [Opening Narration] For millions of years, Earth was fertile and rich. Then pollution and waste began to take their toll. Civilization fell into ruin. This is the world of the 25th Century. Only a handful of scientists remain, men who have vowed to rebuild what has been destroyed. This is their achievement: Ark II, a mobile storehouse of scientific knowledge, manned by a highly trained crew of young people. Their mission: to bring the hope of a new future to mankind.

Flashback
4 November 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen ARK II in years and so my memory is cloudy as to the moralistic / preaching slant to the show, although I can believe it.

As a child, I remembered loving the 'futuristic' R.V. they traveled in and some of the other gadgetry. I also recall 'Robbie The Robot' somewhere in the mix, although I'm not sure if he was part of the permanent cast.

As I said before, I don't recall the overt dogma of the show, but after watching one re-run of 'Shazam!' recently on TV Land, with it's awful production values and tent-revival dialogue about moralism it makes me thankful that for the most part that era has passed for network t.v.
