Based upon the classic comic strip character of the 1920s, which itself was based on novellas by Philip Francis Nowlan, "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century" was first presented as a feature film in 1979. Later that year, series Creator and Executive Producer Glen A. Larson debuted the series as a follow-up to his "Battlestar Galactica." Episodes of the first season are currently available on NBC.com as a part of their effort to stream vintage NBC shows.

The series centered on Captain William Anthony "Buck" Rogers, played by Gil Gerard, a NASA/USAF pilot who commands Ranger 3, a spacecraft that is launched in May 1987.

Due to a life-support malfunction, Buck is accidentally frozen for 504 years before his spacecraft is discovered adrift in the year 2491. The combination of gases that froze his body coincidentally comes close to the formula commonly used in the 25th century for cryopreservation, and his rescuers are able to revive him.

He learns that civilization on Earth was rebuilt following a devastating nuclear war that occurred on November 22, 1987, and is now under the protection of the Earth Defense Directorate.

I loved this show as kid but even then I knew it wasn't very good. Erin Grey in a skin tight jump suit was very tasty.
