Kinda sad/mad about what the heirs to the Buck Rogers estate did to TSR Inc. after they bought it up and kicked Gary Gygax out on his butt. Bunch of trust fund brats who had not a shred of the creativity or the business sense that their ancestor did. On top of that, their constant threats of lawsuits against anyone and everyone drained what little was left of it's operating budget.

By the time of it's demise, TSR used to be known as "They Sue Regularly".

Henry Turner: Episodes of Buck Rogers would need a lot of reworking to fit into any other genre.

How about no. Standard space-cowboy. Even called buck. Faithful comedy sidekick,
`indian` lone warrior to help fight (even with feathers on head)

Military man, far from home, unable to return with indian warrior friend and comedy sidekick help defend town from hostiles.

Town contains local spunky female who can shoot, an older kindly man usually related to the young woman, some form of benevolent wise official and lots of stupid cowardly people who can`t fight.

It`s textbook.

Hawk couldn't fly, but he could help Buck jump the shark.

Kornchex: Oddly enough, I just started watching the series on Netflix last week.  I hadn't seen it since I was a kid.

It is shockingly bad.  The dancing (and roller-dancing) is quite amusing though.  Erin Grey definitely makes up for any shortcomings the show may have.

The Gary Coleman episodes might send you into a seizure.

Erin Gray was the first and best reason to watch the damn show.
