A gem from the forgotten era of Buck Rogers.
5 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, this is not the new Battlestar Galactia or an episode of the many vaunted series so bear with me and accept this for what it is. Its an masterpiece in the sense that it was possibly the best thing to happen to the Buck Rogers after being given the green light for a second season. An almost fruitless second season. Buck is enjoying some downtime when Searcher returns to Earth for resupply and refit when out of the blue an Earth Tribunal begins with designs on pinning the entire cause of the great nuclear war on Buck. Needless to say Buck saves the day and acquits himself adequately. Highlights include a small space chase which is made more impressive by having the later half take place in Earth's atmosphere. A true first for Buck and a hallmark in the annals of scifi in general. The ending will have you on the edge of your seat as well. Overall a well written show to a series that at this time was severely on the bubble. Though it is a good episode, it does have a few glaring errors. Such as why does the tactical screen of the chasing starfigher say high score on the bottom? I also like how a the dress of a 25th century park ranger hasn't changed in over 500 years. When you see it, you will wonder if Buck hadn't just landed on Earth but maybe gone back a several centuries as well. Well, with that said, check it out and hopefully you will be pleased.
