Captain Video

Postby John Thiel » Thu Jul 13, 2006 8:55 am

Well, STAR TREK may be the grand-daddy of sf as a franchise, which means the right to sell products, but it seems to me there used to be Captain Video key-ring decoders and space helmets andvertised along with the show on TV. A lot of kids, now men, and elderly ones at that, used to play around in space cadet and space patrol uniforms, too. I'm not so sure ST is a TV first in any way, except that it seems to have had more of a mainstream impact.

There are a lot of firsts in TV going on nowadays---first in ratings in particular. BSG was called one of the best shows on TV by TV GUIDE.
