Buck Rogers in the 25th Century

Critics Consensus

With its lo-fi special effects and smirking lead, Buck Rogers In The 25th Century is the epitome of sci-fi pulp - and still difficult to appreciate, even on an ironic level.

Critic Reviews for Buck Rogers in the 25th Century Season 1

Audience Reviews for Buck Rogers in the 25th Century: Season 1

  • Mar 03, 2019
    The movie is a lot of fun to watch and while the TV-Series is not as good, its surprisingly entertaining. Many costumes are cheesy and the episodes can be rather basic, but what keeps this going is the actors. Gil Gerard and Erin Gray are excellent and it���s a joy to see them in action. There are some gems, Space vampire and A Dream of Jennifer are both rather good.
