Trivia

This winter offering from ABC went head to head against popular shows WKRP in Cincinnati and Little House on the Prairie. That likely explains why it managed a mere 20 episodes. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: [opening narration] Once upon a time, a junkman had a dream.
Harry Broderick: I want to build a spaceship, go to the moon, salvage all the junk that's up there, bring it back, sell it.
Narrator: So he put together a team. An ex-astronaut. A fuel expert. They built a rocketship, and they went to the moon. Who knows what they'll do next.

Great Show
13 August 2006 | by Flt_2See all my reviews

I can NOT understand why this Show was cancelled it was the greatest Show on TV at the time.

There had to be a good reason to cancel it.

I remember watching this Program when I was in Military Service in West Germany.

I did not like it when it was cut off.

There has to be some one out there that would know.

I've always liked Andy he can play any part they have.

Don knots would have been good in this show too.

I guess this one was for the Science types.

And Back then the science types were the called nerds.

Great Show
