  • Space Academy is attacked

    The action comes fast and furious in this opening episode. Jason has no sooner been given a cute robot sidekick than he has to rescue his friend Captain Davidoff from certain death, deal with an attack on his base of operations, search for his kidnapped commander and surrender his ship to a mysterious enemy.

    Craig Littler and Charlie Dell make a great impression in this opening episode. Littler is the quentessential Alpha Male hero and Dell is a very amusing Normal Tuttle-esque sidekick. Sid Haig doesn't appear in this episode. Susan O'Hanlon can sure fill a space suit (yowza!) but she's fairly bland when she's asked to do anything else. James Doohan, meanwhile, appears to be asleep during his scenes. No matter is happening, he wears the exact same expression. It's really annoying since Doohan is a fantastic actor.

    Anyways, it's a dumb show but the fast pace and great lead cast makes it a lot of fun.
