Always loved that green spandex outfit. And the purple one. And the blue one...
...and the white one !!Erin Gray is a total babe !!!
I remember reading a review of "Buck Rogers" from when it first aired -- the reviewer said something like they were trying to use Erin Grey in spandex costumes to distract from the flimsiness of the stories. I do not mind that distraction AT ALL.
She's at the end of this week's episode of The Guild. http://www.watchtheguild.comThey're about eight minutes, but you could skip to the end. If you don't want to see she's changed, don't go. But you know, she's pretty cool anyway. Chris
"the reviewer said something like they were trying to use Erin Grey in spandex costumes to distract from the flimsiness of the stories." Well, it worked! I was duly distracted.
As I imagine most fans know, actress Juanin Clay (WarGames, 1983) was selected to play Wilma Deering in the Buck Rogers series when Gray was uncertain if she could reprise her movie role. Clay later played Maj. Marla Landers in the episode "Vegas in Space." I didn't know this when I first saw the episode, but it explains the odd "switch" where Deering tells Buck that he will be accompanied on the mission by Landers. "Oh, that Maj. Landers!"
These pictures don't do her justice
One of the most beautiful ! Thanks for sharing
My very second crush from the '70s! (The first was Laurette Spang, "Casseiopeia" of Battlestar Galactica.) Erin had that special lustrous quality that still sparkles!
Erin Gray in spandex was THE reason I went through puberty. Thank you Colonel Deering.
she looked so hot in the first season of buck rodgers, why they changed her clothes in the second season ill never understand
Just met her at Philly Comic Con. What a lovely woman. Still beautiful after all these years. Oh course I could not put together a coherent sentence.Star struck.
Just watching the gorgeous Erin Gray in an early episode of 'The Fall Guy'. I'd forgotten quite how stunning she was. And probably still is. Unbelievable blue eyes
She still is stunning.... as some said earlier "Erin Gray is a total babe !!!"
I used to dream about this woman. I was in my early teens and would go to bed early voluntarily because Erin would be there. She was my earliest TV crush.H
most beautiful woman ever! and good actress too...
I had a super crush on her when this came out!
Most beautiful women ever seen. And she is still so pretty. With her blue eyes and in blue Spandex she was absolutely adorable. As a child I always wanted to be Wilma. Heartbreaking that Buck brushed her off all the time but guess it was part of the show. Lifetime memories I will never never never forget. I will still watch the series in 30 years. Thanks Erin.
Erin is gorgeous, sure. And the plots were not all that flimsy - compared to, say, 'The New Adventures of Wonder Woman'. But the first season of 'Buck Rogers' did not live up to the promise of the TV Movie pilot. Lynda Carter's high profile 38 inch chest kept Wonder Woman on the air for 3 seasons, but 'Buck Rogers' got downgraded to a kiddie show for Season 2, and out the window went all the sexy costumes and sexy starlets. Shame!
