Beedy Beedy Beedy...Buy it Buck!

With its campy combination of lightweight adventure and Spandex disco chic, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century is a nostalgic throwback to post-Star Wars opportunism. Series co-creator Glen A. Larson was incapable of originality, and former soap star Gil Gerard (in the title role) was a bland incarnation of the comic-strip hero, so the much-anticipated series premiered on September 20, 1979, with serious disadvantages. Although the two-hour pilot "Awakening" had tested successfully as a theatrical release, Gerard and the show's producers could never agree on a stable tone for the series, which presents Capt. William "Buck" Rogers as a jovial space cowboy who is accidentally time-warped from 1987 to 2491. Earth is engaged in interplanetary war following a global holocaust, and Buck's piloting skills make him an ideal starfighter recruit for the Earth Defense Directorate, where his closest colleagues are Dr. Huer (Tim O'Connor), squadron leader Col. Wilma Deering (former model Erin Gray, looking oh-so-foxy), the wisecracking robot Twiki (voiced by cartoon legend Mel Blanc), and a portable computer-brain named Dr. Theopolis, who's carried by Twiki like oversized bling-bling.

My first bargain so be kind.

Showing as $14.47 for me (with standard international shipping) if I use my Amex card and £9.13 if I use my Mastercard, so Amazon are using a pretty good exchange rate.

Will be very lucky to get it before Christmas though. Amazon's standard international shipping normally takes at least two weeks at the best of times.
If you're really desperate to have it for Christmas, there are a couple of Amazon UK marketplace sellers with the disc at £10 and delivery for £1.21 (and these normally arrive in under a week).

arent you better buying it used at 8.49 region 2
