This must have been something, even in 1954. The terrible costumes (in this one they look like they borrowed Civil War uniforms from the Union Army). The plot involves a gypsy moon, ruled by an evil woman who, given information that she is on a collision course with another moon, decides to let everyone on the other moon die. Rocky Jones is the hero. He has a sidekick named Winky. There's a space girl who wears short dresses and has a robe that's always in the way. There's also an egg headed professor and a kid who looks like a refugee from Rin Tin Tin. Everything is about as cheap as cheap can be. The takeoffs and landings are always the same. There are cardboard trees and cardboard buildings. They use "space" slang (whatever that is). They are always optimistic. Rocky saves the day several times, even though his incompetent companions do everything they can to mess things up. Sometimes people talk about the "golden age of television." This is an example that things weren't always that great. Nevertheless, if you lie back and listen to them talk, you may get a kick out of it.
