    So, I'd never seen this before, but I thought I'd share it for 2 reasons.

    1. Now you'll know that there were lyrics to the theme song and they sucked.

    2. This totally looks like the beginning of a space-porno.

    Enjoy.

    Oh yeah, that's from the pilot. Very cheesy and the sort of thing that gives scifi fans a bad name.
    The actual show titles are way better, and I still love that series way more than I should (even not considering the sight of Erin Gray in tight shiny costume every episode!)

    SPACE pr0n FTW!

    I don't remember that intro, but I remembered the lyrics.
    Did they ever play the lyrics as the show exited?

    I used to love that show when I was a kid.
    I would get really mad if I ever missed an episode.

    It's too bad that we have to wait another 400 years for spandex to be in style.

    Remember the episode where he was in the desert with a very young and very chest enhanced Jamie Lee Curtis? Spandex, plus sweat, plus Jamie Lee Curtis = HAWT.

    It's like Baywatch... in space. But with much hotter chicks.

    I think I have the pilot on VHS somewhere. It's the greatest.

    Hawk? Psshaw! Season 2 wasn't as good, mainly because the sexy, evil Space Princess Ardala wasn't in any of the episodes and Colonel Wilma's costume wasn't as tight.

    That makes me nostalgic for crappy 80's TV.

    Except it was the 70's

    But I have to agree, that intro does look like space porn. I am kind of glad it was just for the pilot and not the regular show.

    Regardless, 80's nostalgia is what I feel. 70's nostalgia is a whole other sort.

    The show first aired on TV in September 1979.
    I don't think a generalization of "the 80s" is off base.

    So, I guess Buck Rogers had a 500 year long wet dream?

    Man, I kept waiting for them to say what role John Holmes had in this. That was some serious space porn intro. Anyways, it was a great show. Does anyone know if they are doing an update? I've heard of feature films, tv shows, cartoons, etc. over the years, but nothing makes it.
