A lot of stuff on this site is contributed by members, so an absence of acting credits on this site doesn't necessarily mean that the actor never was in the show. I admittedly checked out this Space Coaster page because I find florida annoying on other pages. However, I'm going to have to disagree with you on this one. A lot of times, actors' credits have to be added to pages by fans, especially if it's just a minor role or a small appearance. I've had people added to movie credits before.
Maybe there are other ways y'all can try to garner interest in the possibility of having your show put on dvd. I seriously doubt the effectiveness of a web petition, although I guess it's a good start, and think that a letter-writing campaign would also be a good idea.
Florida: You seem to spend a lot of time on these boards, considering the frequency with which I see you posting on the sites of other shows and movies that I liked as a child. You sure seem to know a lot about some good old 80s shows, though you talk as much as I do, which probably annoys people. That's why I try not to post a whole lot. I bet you'd also be good at finding fanmail addresses. You could write up a basic form letter to send to people that were on the show or something, then put it up on a webpage so people can just print it out to send. Make it so people can request a list of addresses from you or something. Paper mail is less easy to ignore than some random thing online.
I'm terribly sorry if I gave you the wrong impression, but I've already told you elsewhere that I've never seen this show. I was just trying to defend you and offer you another suggestion on something to do to try to get people to put this show on DVD, since you seem so interested in it. Well, more than just talking about the show repeatedly on any remotely related online forum. I guess it's kind of like how I'd love to see Kids Incorporated get released on DVD, since I totally loved that show, and my little niece is nuts about the episodes I've been able to show her.
That's all right. The Great Space Coaster aired syndicated for 5 years from 1981 to 1986. It's a very rare out of date show.
Hey uh... trptgrl, you did'nt seem to offer anything else other than what we have been trying to do for the last 3 or more years. "You've never seen the show?" Why post on the board, you are not helping actually. You seem to not like FloridianItalian. FloridaItalian is an excited fan that will show us the way, he will get this show on DVD eventually. We need fans like him for these lost shows. Maybe he can help you with Kids Incorporated.
I'd just like to say that I watched this show as a kid, and vividly remember Sally Struthers being on it. I know that gives no concrete proof, but I remember it because one of my sisters confused her with Sally Field.
I have seen mistakes on imdb before, if only obscure things like certain artists not being credited with songs that were in certain movies, i.e. some of the songs on Wayne's World 2 aren't on here.
To be brutally honest, though, I don't think I would buy this show on DVD at this juncture in my life. Maybe later if I have kids, but for now I don't really need to relive it. I'll sign the petition, though.
