There were actually no chains in this episode, but there were spandex-clad women, explosions, and Dr. Huer’s superhuman power to deploy payloads of expertly-timed exposition.

  6. Dr. Huer faces a stuffed shirt who calls him “Elias”. The diplomat is no match for Huer’s advanced powers of exposition. #BuckRogers about 2 hours ago via Twitter for iPad
  7. Lots of vehicle tracks on this deserted prison planet. #BuckRogers about 2 hours ago via Twitter for iPad
  8. That’s a fairly brightly lit 200-meter underground prison complex. And the huge medallion raises no suspicion. #BuckRogers about 2 hours ago via Twitter for iPad
  9. Uh oh, the smirking diplomat is meeting some shady characters in the landing bay. In the brightly lit landing bay. #BuckRogers about 2 hours ago via Twitter for iPad
  10. Oh, finally — they notice the huge medallion. They really could have thought that one out more carefully. about 2 hours ago via Twitter for iPad
  11. I forget #BuckRogers aired on primetime in the 70s, when killing guards was taboo, but killing android guards was ok. about 2 hours ago via Twitter for iPad

  15. Thank you, sound editor, for dubbing in the explanation that Jamie was grabbed by a “sand squid.” #BuckRogers about 2 hours ago via Twitter for iPad
  16. Sound editor forgot to dub in the sparking, beeping mechanical guard, until he gets close enough for the sand squid to get him. #BuckRogers about 2 hours ago via Twitter for iPad
  17. I knew the beeping, sparking android guard wasn’t done for yet. #BuckRogers about 2 hours ago via Twitter for iPad

  22. Okay, the android guard’s dramatic entrance would have been more of a surprise if we hadn’t seen the clip in the preview. #BuckRogers about 2 hours ago via Twitter for iPad
  23. So prisoners in the 25th century can just bang their tracking bracelets on a table, take them off, and put them on someone else? #BuckRogers about 2 hours ago via Twitter for iPad
  24. The confrontation between Huer and Ted the Ambassador was better than it had to be, but too peripheral to matter. #BuckRogers about 1 hour ago via Twitter for iPad
