|Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - "Space Vampire"|
One of the better aspects of Ron Moore's "re-imagined" Battlestar Galactica (2004 - 2009) was the use of a "teaser" trailer at the **end** of the opening credits - a fast clip of upcoming scenes were shown without dialogue - very similar to the eclectric !This Episode! trailers that appeared during the opening title sequence of the first Season of Space: 1999.
Would it be too much of a throwback if a new sci-fi show premiered in the 21st Century - and each episode opened with a "teaser"? What do you think - too retro? Maybe so, but I would love it if opening "teaser" trailers made a comeback.
Below are 3 all-time great opening "teasers" that are well-worth viewing -
1) Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - "Space Vampire"
2) Battlestar Galactica - "Fire in Space"
3) Voyagers! - "Jack's Back"
All 3 of these great classic TV shows were produced by Universal Studios - either by coincidence or design, the most memorable opening "teasers" were produced by Universal! :-)
