What if RDM did Buck Rogers?

If RDM had done/did do a re-imagining of the 80's Buck Rogers, how do you think it would go?

I think that he would have concentrated a little more on the "Man out of Time" aspect, with Buck dealing with the fact that his whole world has gone.

I think Twiki would have been an early casualty in the development process, or if he was used be more of a "realistic" robotic lifeform.

Of course, I'm not sure if it would have been such a huge galaxy of races as in Larson's version.

Would it have been a must watch?

Re: What if RDM did Buck Rogers?

1-Buck Rogers would turn into a chick
2-Everyone will become fully emo by episode 5
3-two words: Epic Backstabbing
4-Not a single likable character by season 3
5-Sex. And lots of it.

All in my opinion of course

Re: What if RDM did Buck Rogers?

I think we've already had a reimagined Buck Rogers.

It was called Farscape.

Take the concept and turn it into something no one would recognize.

It would be Grimdark and overly depressing and make me stop watching after the first series and come to the conclusion it was over-hyped crap?

The original was sufficiently grimdark that RDM could only lighten it up.

Already done, the Duck Dodgers series from 2003 was superb. Especially the Tom Jones stuff.

Eick was a pathetic writer and I think its about time your RDM asssniffers got over BSG, the crap show is over.

Not a single likable character by season 3

Buck re-imagined,


All males would be castrated and emo

Gil Gerard would be replaced by an ugly obnoxious female actor, with the face of a horse and body of a 13 year old boy

All the women would look like butch wrestlers

Buck Rogers in the 25th century and Wilma Deering would express love by getting into a boxing ring and beating the shit of of each other

Constant Political Themes, Gun control, Secession, Scientology, Abortion, Creationist design, Nihilism, CNN, Foxnews.....all that kind of psuedo intellectual crap

The whole show would revolve around who is a "Hawk"....there are many copies and they have a plan

time jumps, flash backs, hiatus, 14 months and 9 month storyline line gaps to add to some big non-existent mystery

The show would have 30 extremely shit actors...3 very talented veteran actors bust their butts and manage to keep some Buck Rogers scenes afloat

No Blacks...whatever African American actors are on set will be killed off by the end of season 3

the series would jump the shark after 16 episodes but Senile Critics and RDM brown nosers would keep hyping and hyping this crappy Bucke Rogers re-imagination all over the internet

Twiki wouldn't be around

Sarah "Buck" Roger's would be on trial as being some sort of alien or enemy force.

Buck lands on a planet and finds his ship and charred corpse

"What the TWIKI AM I?!"

President Ardala believes God is telling her destroy Earth

Sexual tensions between Wilma Deering and Sarah fuel the season

Buck points a gun to Dr. Elias Huer head, CLIFFHANGER!

Wilma starts hearing "Smoke on the water"

If RDM did Buck Rogers, we'd get Farscape, but with more angst and a lot less color and fun.

I don't care if RDM remakes Buck Rogers, as long as Ardala still rips off his shirt and has him in chains...
