The feeling is mutual.
I loved Buck Rogers......Never missed it!
Then this.... and now its over....... Nobody messes w/ the Vorvon...
Buck Rogers heyday was the 80s for me.
I loved Buck Rogers as a kid. Twiki was the coolest fake robot on television.
I had the biggest crush on Colonel Deering (Erin Gray).
Never watched it myself, but that clip just screams 70's kitsch.
The 80's were pretty damn sweet too.
....I think we were the last generation to actually go outside. You would spend sun up to sundown playing outside...then come home to dinner and the boob tube. The shows meant a lot more to you when you only watched 3-4 a week. Movies were a special treat. I still remember how excited I used to get when the old HBO intro would come on.
loved that HBO intro, I still remember going to visit my grandma in a small town and they had cable and HBO and longing for the day we would be able to get it.
It's amazing to think when I was 5 or 6, I would grab some breakfast and then yell out to my mom that I was going outside to play, all she ever said is "be back by dark". I wonder if any kids these days have that kind of freedom. I also rode the Greyhound bus by myself when I was 8 or 9 years old and took flights solo as well. I think it does a lot for a kids confidence as he grows up, too bad the worlds gotten so paranoid
I felt the same way about Showtime After Dark when I turned 13. We didn't subscribe, so I had to squint at a scrambled signal.
why do all men who were men in the 1970's do that purse the lip thing when they try to dance.
And every once in a while it'd slightly unscramble at the right time....jackpot
I had the audio and an active imagination. That was more than enough.
i too feel sorry for those not around for the 70's.
best decade ever.... except for maybe the 50's.
although i was not around for the 50's... the 50's looked pretty damn cool.
Thanks for posting that BB very funny stuff.
Erin Gray was hot.
Damn, just looked her up she is 61-- yikes.
So is Lindsay Wagner.
Only reason to watch it
What you talking about willis?
Bidda bidda bidda buck
Best Wig and eye brows ever?
I love me some me
Only a Princess can wear this gear
yeah. I remember drinking from a garden hose just about every day during the summer after playing baseball in the street. (imagine the health nazi's we have now stroking out at someone doing that) All I had to do is be back by dark. Ran all over the place. We were truly free during the summer. Todays kids are missing so much; and you can see that with all the fat kids in elementary school now; and all bundled up and so protected in the bad weather; just really sad.
I stopped doing that after I ended up with a cricket in my mouth.
