    and I'm catching little references that I had never noticed when I saw it as a kid.

    There's an episode where an old pilot tells Buck "I've been doing this since before you were born" and Buck answers, "You think so?" and he goes, "Son, I know so." And we all laugh because lol Buck is 500 years old. But the real joke is, the actor who said it was Buster Crabbe, who played Buck Rogers in a movie in 1939 (and Flash Gordon in the 30s and 40s), so he really WAS doing it before he was born. :rofl:

    And just now he's in the spaceport trying to talk to a girl who just boarded a ship, and in the background you hear "Captain Christopher Pike, please report to the veterans affairs office".

    :bowdown:

    Oh yeah, and they reuse a lot of props from Battlestar Galactica. Notably the Viper cockpits for the Starfighters. :cool:

    careful with that shit bro. they may think you don't have any pube control abilities. people from the 20th century had no muff control.
