Glow-in-the-dark hats, glittery beards, and daft musical instruments: Andromeda rule!
10 March 2008 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

After the emotional themes explored in the previous episode, A Dream Of Jennifer, Buck Rogers In The 25th Century gets back to its normal camp silliness with Space Rockers, in which a music impresario, Lars Mangros (Jerry Orbach), is hellbent on causing chaos throughout the galaxy: hidden in broadcasts by his (unsuspecting) best-selling rock band Andromeda, special hypnotic signals cause young music fans to riot and rebel against authority.

Buck and Twiki are sent to investigate at an orbiting space station named Musicworld, where Andromeda are due to transmit their first galaxy-wide performance.

Opening with a crazy disco-rock number by Andromeda, who sport some of the silliest rock outfits of all time (and that's coming from a KISS fan!), it's immediately obvious that this episode is going to be nothing but dumb fun. Expect lots of light-rope dancing, some pathetic riot scenes (in which the unruly youths throw a few chairs and smash a couple of vases), some way-out tunes from the 'space rockers' and Twiki doing a spot of dancing.

Erin Grey fans will probably be slightly disappointed by this episode, since the perfect opportunity to get her into some revealing disco outfits is wasted (Deering stays on Earth with Dr. Heuer), but to make up for this slightly, Karana (Nancy Frangione), the synth-guitar player in the band, isn't exactly ugly, and Judy Landers guest stars as Mangros' girl Joanna.
