In 1979, Gil Gerard starred in “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.” Here‘s the intro we all now and love. And Erin Gray in a shiny white lycra jumpsuit that would surely make you go blind if you looked long enough. Also the South Park version, which is quite funny.
However, before the TV series was released, the pilot episode was released as a slightly more adult orientated movie. This was the James Bond style intro to the movie, with the original theme music, and loads and loads of cheese. Having said that, it did have Erin Gray and Pamela Hensley in it, two top examples of 1970s TV crumpet. Bid-dee bid-dee Bid-dee (Go on, say it out loud. Fast)
