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 »

Great pilot launches a so-so series.
26 February 2001 | by Mephisto-24See all my reviews

The movie-length pilot of "Salvage 1" concerns a salvage man, an ex-astronaut and a few friends who build a rocket out of junk and launch it to the moon to retrieve gear from one of the Apollo sites to pay off a tax debt. Despite obviously cheap special effects, it does a great job of capturing the excitement of spaceflight, and also has some wonderfully funny moments, such as Harry Broderick (Andy Griffith) phoning the FAA to lodge their flight plan. Highly recommended for space buffs. The weekly series, in which Broderick attempts other salvage operations, was watchable but never re-captured the highs of the pilot telemovie.
