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.

Barricaded Gunman: Dadoo: Are you serious? Both had elements of cheesy future, but BSG still holds up pretty well. BSG had limited quantities of Boxy and Muffit while there was no avoiding Tweekie.

It just felt like BR had Gil Gerard sort of joking around with its premise, which gave it a smirkier, less creaky feel, while BSG had Lorne Greene chewing scenery and delivering lines with hamfisted gravitas.

Twiki might have been annoying, but BSG took itself way too seriously for a show in which the main bad guy was a robe-wearing robot prop with an elongated gumball machine for a head.
Hey, don't knock the head, fella!

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

That was on when I was in junior high.  Many, many kittens died on account of Erin Gray.

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.
