A Space Western
3 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

Apollo (Richard Hatch) crash lands his ship on a planet that seems to be stuck in the Wild West.

It looks like I might be in the minority around here but I rather liked this western in space.

It is a change from all the usual stuff on the battleship, just poor old Apollo dealing with a Cylon.

Sci-fi shows and westerns have come together before in 1960s shows like Lost In Space (The Space Croppers, Blast Off Into Space, etc) and The Time Tunnel (Billy The Kid)...this mix of genres sometimes works out very well.
