really very good fifties sci-fi adventures
7 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I purchased one of those box sets of 150 old science fiction TV episodes. I bought it mainly for the Steve Holland Flash Gordon episodes and Gene Autry's Phantom Empire. I basically wasn't expecting squat from the 24 installments of Captain Z-Ro that were included but I was very pleasantly surprised to find I enjoyed them very much indeed. They remind me most of the 1960's series Time Tunnel.

The production values for the show were surprisingly good and the writing was also pretty tight, better than one might reasonably expect. At its core is a spaceship? that is equipped to travel through time as well as space. For various reasons they warp to major historical events that took place on good old earth. As a matter of fact Star Trek did much the same thing as they somehow managed to wind up in numerous very earth like historical adventures. The episode that centered on Revolutionary War heroine Molly Pitcher actually kept my fifteen year old daughter glued to the set...shocking! My personal fav was the one where they explored inside one of the great pyramids in order to find out what happened to the Pharoh's missing mummy. This is actually a better show than the Steve Holland Flash Gordon although I enjoyed that one too.

I'm surprised that I had never heard of Captain Z-Ro because he was a very cool dude and his adventures were nicely done with mostly authentic looking costumes and sets despite traveling somewhere different in time for each episode. Some good acting too. Of particular note is the awesome robot Roger the Robot...he really makes hay in the Egyptian episode. The dude rocked!!! He was superbly written and looked cool too.
