Goofs

When Rocky and Winky were traveling toward the Space Station to warn them of the "Atmosphere chain", they asked the Space Station's radio operator to call back the ship that had recently left. The radio operator indicated that they were out of radio range, yet Rocky was able to talk to them, supposedly from further away. See more »

I disagree with Blazing 1 from Queens
4 June 2005 | by macdwhacSee all my reviews

I completely disagree with the previous review. The special effects for this show were above and beyond their limited budget. Other shows of this genere that had limited budgets that did well include Star Trek for one. They used salt shakers for equipment fer crying out loud. The plot line for Crash was a little corny, but look at the time period that it was made in. TV was in it's infancy and it's targeted audience were the kids of the 50's, you know..."Baby Boomers". Their older brothers & parents didn't have TV. They only had radio serials like Superman & Jack Armstrong. As you said about "Poor Cleolanta", she was a total hottie for any age. She has the most beautiful eyes & pretty face. Winky, played by Scotty Beckett, if you didn't recognize him was Scotty from the Little Rescals, you know the one with the hat on backwards. John Banner, who later played lovable Sgt Schultz (I know nothinnnnngggg) played Bavarro. Sally Mansfield, who later was a regular on The Bachelor Father in the early 60's, played Vena Ray. She was fairly hot also. I guess it's all about individual taste. You also have to remember that a lot of plot lines and gizmos from this show were borrowed by the later shows. The best thing to say is watch it 7 make up yer own mind.
