One of the greatest moments in Sci-Fi History
Okay, this show was terrible. But, face it for budgetary reasons so was Dr. Who. I love them both. This show was never destined for greatness, but by having Buster Crab basically playing Flash Gordon getting into the cockpit of a starfighter after all these years was intensely satisfying.
My Grandfather raised me. He grew up in the thirties watching the original series and he explained what was going on during this episode. How Buster Crabbe had played both Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers.
As far as I can remember; this many years down the road, the exchange went something like this: After a canned battle sequence probably pieced together from the feature film. Buck has a moment to compliment "Gordon" on his flying.
Buck: "That was some nice flying back there." Gordon: "Son, I've been flying these things since before you were born." Instant sci-fi history was made. Crappy show, great moment.
