Trivia

The interior of the Space Ship's docking station landing hanger featured entry/exit circular "ball" shaped headed "key hole" frames leading into the main Space Ship. The art director Hub Braden purposely designed the phallic shaped entry door frames based upon a very popular men's cologne shaped container. Fred Silverman, nor the show's producer Bruce Lansbury, picked up on the intentional "Amazon Woman's" obsession for male symbolism. During the sequence of the shows' sets, Braden designed sets with this factor in mind. See more »

Goofs

When the first male goes into the auction, the sounds heard from inside are of a real auctioneer, nothing like the style of Cassius' auction of Buck. See more »

Quotes

Capt. William "Buck" Rogers: No offense, Wilma, but you look like something the cat dragged in, then dragged right out again.
Col. Wilma Deering: Why is it that for once I know exactly what you're talking about?

Buck Rogers: "Planet of the Amazon Women"
12 August 2017 | by WuchakkSee all my reviews

PLOT: Buck is lured to the planet Zantia by two beautiful women feigning succor. He is then auctioned off as a slave to the highest bidder of the female citizenry. Anne Jeffreys plays the Prime Minister of the planet while Ann Dusenberry appears as her daughter, Ariela, who opposes the kidnapping and human trafficking.

COMMENTARY: This episode is best known for the blond & brunette beauties who initially hoodwink Buck, Nyree (Liberty Godshall) and Linea (Teddi Siddall). The former is easily one of the most beautiful women to appear on the series with a face & figure sculptured by God Himself, not to mention her striking yellow non-costume. Unfortunately, these two are inexplicably removed from the proceedings by the 16-minute mark. No matter, there are several other exquisite women featured in the rest of the segment, including Antoinette Stella as Jayel.

One of the more memorable and amusing parts is Buck being auctioned off to a bevy of interested females. There are also a few quality equestrian sequences with gorgeous locations.
