Buck Rogers in the 25th Century
Now, this is why I think this TV show is better than anything you watch now:
Captain Rogers friend and romantic interest Colonel Wilma Deering, played by Erin Gray. Whats not to like except the annoying robot sidekick Twiki and...
...the chief villain Princess Ardala (Pamela Hensley) whose main objective was to conquer the Earth, and secondary objective was making Buck her boy toy.
Oh yeah, how about Gary Coleman as Hieronymous Fox "The Cosmic Whiz Kid"?
If you still are not convinced go check out full episodes on Hulu.com especially the episode Cruise Ship to the Stars. Miss Cosmo is out of this world.
*Much love to Justin over at Siempre La Luna for Spaceman Love Tang inspiration.
