Message from the Webmaster at Buck-Rogers.com
- Hello Buck-Rogers Fans!!!
I can't believe it's been three months already since I've updated my
Web site, time has certainly flown by. I'm sorry to report that I
have no Web site updates at this time, but in light of certain
things that are taking place in the Yahoo! Group I feel the need to
address the fans of Buck Rogers and the visitors of my Web site as a
When I started this site my only goal was to put information I had
on Buck Rogers out there for everyone in the world to enjoy. No one
else on the Internet at the time had attempted to do what I have
done with Buck-Rogers.com. Over time others have contributed certain
things to the site and I've tried to slowly, but surely add things
based on the requests of those who visit the site.
Due to the fact that nothing significant has really happened in the
world of Buck Rogers for over 20 years now the majority of those who
visit the site are truly fans of the character and the genre he
represents. Because of this fact, there is more of a nostalgia
towards the character than a pop-culture hype.
Over the years, since I started this site, the thing that people
have asked me for more than anything else is if can I make them
copies of the 1979-81 TV series. Considering that part of the series
has been available in both the United States and abroad I figured
only the die hard fans would be interested in the entire series. I
have been reluctant in the past to even get involved with making
video tapes, because I can easily see it consuming my life. I
started the message board section which eventually evolved into the
Yahoo! Group so fans could have a forum to help each other out in
But when I see someone charging $40 per volume for Buck Rogers on
DVD and using the forum I created for their own personal profit it
pretty much upsets me. For those of you who want to buy from this
person I'm not going to try to stop you. But here's what I am going
I too have the PAL versions of season one and I'm going to look into
the cost of transferring them to DVD. I will only charge what it
costs me to have them made and I can guarantee it won't be anywhere
near $40 per volume.
Since I only have SciFi Channel versions of season two I'm going to
make them immediately available on NTSC VHS.
For $25 you will get two tapes with all of season two, except the
episode "The Guardians" which is currently already available on
I will only accept payment through Paypal and shipping will be done
via US Priority Mail. Paypal information will soon be available on
If you have any questions e-mail me at webmaster@....
Thanks for visiting and talk to you soon,
I want to thank you too, James. It's great to see people who want to share
what they have with others who enjoy it too, without necessarily making a
profit. I recently have had an experience with someone who was asking $15.00
PER EPISODE for another series I wanted. It's nice to see people who aren't
greedy for a change.
By the way, is anyone going to Frightvision in Cleveland next year? From
their website, it looks like Gil Gerard and Erin Gray are both going to be
there. I can't wait!
- That sounds like a great idea!
But will you be able to provide DVD's for NTSC region 1?
It would be a shame to limit it just to PAL or Europe.
Thanks for the effort!
