Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, staring Gil Gerard (Buck Rogers), Erin Grey (Wilma Deering), Felix Silla (Twiki) and Tim O’Connor (Dr. Elias Huer.
Science fiction meets Solid Gold! I remember this as a fun show. Like Star Trek’s Captain Kirk, Buck Rogers handled situation with his fist. The costumes where “futuristic” – you know, women dressed in flowing robes, polyester body suits and sometimes barely anything (isn’t it cold in space?!). The men dressed in polyester everything. And the special effects seemed, well, rushed and low budget. However, this is still a fun show to watch! Twiki was my favorite! Not many of my school friends watched this show – but, everyone seemed to know who Twiki was.
