Great show, should have run longer!
This was a great show when I watched it as a kid. Now, it just isn't the same, but I still really enjoy it. Unlike the other reviewer, I don't think the acting was bad. For the most part (there are a few exceptions), I thought the acting was very good. Gil Gerard was great as Buck, as was Erin Gray as Wilma. Twiki was awesome and waaay under used in season 2! The show didn't always have the greatest plot lines, and the effects were often very cheesy (although I guess they were considered pretty good at the time the show was made), but it is still one of my favorites.
The only thing that really disappointed me about the set itself was the lack of extras on the DVD's. I would have loved to have seen some episode commentaries or even just interviews with the cast. There are no extras at all on this set. This lack of extras is why I only gave this set 4 stars instead of 5.
All-in-all, this is definitely well worth the price at $20. Heck, it was even worth it at the price I paid about two years or so ago ($80, although I certainly wish I'd held out a little longer and paid the lower price!).
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
fun to watch
When i was growin gup this show was the best on TV so when i saw it out on DVD i had to have it. Funny how things change when you become an adult and see them again. The acting is so bad but if anything it brought back a lot of fond memories
