YMMV / Buck Rogers in the 25th Century

  • Crowning Music of Awesome
    • The intro. Judge for yourself.
    • The pilot movie actually began with an extended intro and a song version of the theme music. (You can watch it here, or if that video gets taken down, here's an audio-only rendition.) For extra kitsch points, fans of The Lawrence Welk Show were tickled to learn that the singer was the Lennon Sisters' kid brother, Kipp.
    • The pilot movie (complete with theme song) is part of the DVD collection of the series.
    • The French version has its own music and lyrics — deliciously kitsch.
  • Evil Is Sexy: The show is noted for fan service, but in a notable example, Wilma Deering comes under the influence of a space vampire and tries to seduce Buck while acting highly aroused. While Wilma was always intended to be sexy, it's as if she wasn't even trying until that moment.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Due to the Challenger explosion, 1987 (the year of Buck's launch) was a year that had no actual NASA launches.
