Foxy Ladies #12: The Women of Buck Rogers (Part 1)

 

As big a place as the Internet is, there still isn't a complete gallery of space babes from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (imagine that). So, I took it upon myself to fill this glaring void in the blogosphere, and compile this database (Wikipedia, I'm talkin' to you - link here asap). Each stone cold fox is listed with (1) the actress' name, (2) her character, (3) the episode(s) she appeared in, and best of all, a picture or two.  Some entries have an item of trivia.

So, here's the first installment of perhaps the most important reference collection on the Internet: The Women of Buck Rogers. Enjoy!

  1. Nice work. We used to love this show. Markie Post seems to have gotten around a bit before landing on Night Court.

  3. I look forward to seeing Erin Gray every year at Comic-con.

    She is a class act.

    I am also surprised to see who was a "minor character" on Buck Rogers, but who went on to bigger stardom.

    Keep up the good work between political rants.

  4. This is excellent. Can't wait for more! Yeah, Erin Gray is at Comic-Con every year, and she still looks terrific.

  5. What? No love for Pamela Hensley's work on the 80's detective show "Matt Houston"?

  6. Fun stuff. Buck Rogers was only rivaled by Hee-Haw in it's pulchritude of family-friendly jiggle factor. :-)

  7. A bad show, but it was fun at least for the first season. The second season was almost as bad as Space 1999's second season and it had that same kind of "change everything that worked" type approach.

  8. I never knew that Jamie Lee Curtis was on Buck Rogers.I wonder if she got Dr. Huer to take the Activa challenge.

  9. Brianne Leary also appeared on "CHiPs" as a semi-regular, and if I recall, Erik Estrada didn't like her, so she was let go.

      As I comment in part II of this, BR is a Glen Larson production. Pamela appeared in many Larson productions, including Knight Rider, The Fall Guy, Battlestar Galactica, and BJ and the Bear.

      BTW -- you failed to note that she has a nude scene in Halloween II. The part was egregiously small, but notable for that alone.

      She was indeed a very lovely girl.
