"Learn From The Past To Plan For The Future"

Watching "Captain Z-Ro" today (65 years down the road) I, personally, found that this well-meaning SyFy TV show for kids really didn't hold up very well at all.

Yes. I do understand that this low-budget production was meant to be viewed as a program that offered straightforward history lessons (which were intended to help educate all of the inquisitive youngsters in the audience).

But, with that said - Unfortunately, "Captain Z-Ro's" decidedly stagy and dull-edged presentation certainly left a whole lot to be desired. And, as a result, it failed to hold my undivided attention for more than just a few brief moments at a time.
