5.0 out of 5 stars Une saison plus réussie que la précédente ! Jan. 26 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Dans un digipack comprenant 4 DVD, cette saison est une véritable réussite tant dans les scénarios que dans la réalisation.
Je recommande vivement ce coffret. Il n'est malheureusement disponible qu'en anglais (cette saison n'a jamais été diffusée donc doublée en France) mais des sous-titres français sont présents.
L'image est très belle et détaillée. Aucun supplément par contre n'est disponible dans ce coffret.
Attention au niveau du matériel pour le lire. Zone 1 NTSC.

4.0 out of 5 stars This release contains the TV MOVIE version of the Pilot--1st time EVER on DVD!!! Aug. 23 2012
By FRED - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
...just a heads-up, that BUCK ROGERS: Season 2 contains the NBC-TV MOVIE version of the Pilot, titled "Awakening" as a special extra/bonus on Disc #4--this is the FIRST TIME that this version of the Pilot has been commercially available (it wasn't included in the 2004 BUCK ROGERS: The Complete Epic Series DVD set). The TV MOVIE version of the Pilot runs roughly 9 minutes longer than the Theatrical version and contains at least two additional scenes with a different beginning and a different (more satisfying) ending. Fun stuff from back in the day... BUCK ROGERS!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great to have the TV pilot, but I do NOT recommend buying online! Sept. 15 2013
By Jero Briggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first copy I got did not include the TV pilot! It said it included the TV pilot and that it had four discs. When I got it, it did not include the pilot, and it only had two discs - the same two discs that were included in "The Complete Epic Series". They were even listed as Discs 4 & 5. Be careful what you buy. I bought mine online. If you are looking for the TV pilot, try maybe buying it new at a store rather than online. And make sure it says it includes the pilot on cover before buying. After I got a bad one online, I decided to look for it new in stores. The one I bought at the store actually included four discs and the TV pilot as a bonus episode on the final disc.

The first DVD release of the show was "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century: The Complete Epic Series" which included both seasons one & two in one box set. But it only had the theatrical edit of the pilot. They made two edits of the pilot, a movie edit that was released in theaters nearly six months before the TV series was released, and a television edit which they aired as part of the television series. Now they have re-released the series on DVD in seasons. Season One still only includes the theatrical pilot, but Season Two includes the TV pilot as a bonus episode. I already had "The Complete Epic Series" DVD box set, but being a fan of the show, I still wanted the TV pilot as well. So I bought the season two set as well.

Although I do prefer the theatrical edit, I still wanted the TV edit too. Mainly because of four scenes they added in the TV version (1. The scene where Twiki and Theo show Buck his new apartment, 2. Buck's inquiry about Anarkia - which is the 25th century name for old Chicago, 3. The part where Wilma thanks Buck for helping her fight the pirates but then tells him that since the Princess denied Buck's story that she would have to place him under arrest and Buck tells her that it would be pointless due to the fact that he has nowhere to go that the only home he had is 500 years in the past, 4. The added epilogue scene at the end that features Buck decorating his new place when he is interrupted by Wilma and Dr. Huer who try to get him to join Earth's Defense Directorate.) All of those scenes make the TV version worth buying. However, on the down side, the scene with Buck fighting Tigerman is trimmed and badly edited, King Draco no longer appears in the story, they cut out Kane's last line about getting revenge on Buck Rogers, and a boom mike can also be seen in one scene (the scene was also featured in the movie, but the boom mike does not appear in the movie version). That's why I like the movie edit better, but those four added scenes in the TV version still got me to re-buy a season I already have just so I could watch them.

As for the season itself, season two was a big departure from the first. Although the series was doing good during its first season, the network went ahead and cut the show's budget for its second, the show was reformatted to have a more "Star Trek" type of feel to it, they got rid of several characters from the first season, the show didn't have as much action in it, the special effects weren't as good, and Wilma's character was changed from an heroic colonel to the damsel in distress. It's not surprising the show didn't do as well after that. I could see changing a show and cutting its budget if it's not doing well, but if something works, why the hell do they think they need to tamper with it?! But even though the second season wasn't as good as the first, I still found it enjoyable. Most of the stories were still good, and most of them were even taken more seriously apart from the episode "Shgoratchx!". And I really liked the new character Hawk played by Tom Christopher. So even though the first season was better, I still recommend Season Two because it was still a good sci-fi show. And even if you're a fan and don't like this season, I still recommend buying it mainly for the TV pilot. Just make sure you're buying a copy that actually has the pilot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! The Pilot Version. Oct. 26 2013
By Darrell A. Lane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Buck and friends were a major part of my childhood and even sucky episodes are well-loved by moi, but it is the pilot "The Awakening" (with alternate scenes) that led me to this purchase. I had already bought the original DVD release about ten years ago and was saddened that they hadn't included the pilot or done something daring and incorporated the various TV scenes for a fuller, more robust theatrical release version. Sadly, Universal is like Warner in regards to ignoring their fans' interest in the oldies. Warner has its Archives Collection and Universal has its Franchise Collections, but neither seem willing to invest in better releases. Buck Rogers should have interviews with Gil Gerard, Erin Gray, Thom Christopher, Pamela Hensley and even Glen Larson; we should have TV spots, a movie trailer, a making of...feature, a retrospective that includes the comic strip, 1938 serial, 1950's TV series, comic books, TSR role playing game and the webisodes and of Buck's son. But as is Universal's respect for its own commodity goes it's bare bones.

The second season isn't as fun as the first, true, but, in toto, the 37 episodes and the original theatrical release fired up my imagination immensely.

Why five stars? Nostalgia, Buck (cue Twiki's sibilant eebie debee).

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Plain fun ! May 7 2013
By Bilco41 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The second season of Buck Rogers found Buck and Wilma holding hands and going forth into the universe on a mission of exploration. I was never sure just what they were looking for, but the wisecracking relationship betweenthem changed to "good-buddy" kinda deal. Buck turned into an intelligent he-man leader, and Wilma turned into a beautiful, sexy, wishy-washy sort of girl-friend, who usually needed saving from herself in most episodes.
The second season wasn't as good as the first, but since I was, and still are an Erin Gray fan, I watched every episode. It was still fun.
