TESTIMONY OF A TRAITOR

THE PLOT:

The Searcher arrives back on Earth but before they can disembark, Buck is arrested and accused of consorting with the enemy which lead to the nuclear war. The evidence against him is a video cassette found in the ruins of the old world.

Now on trail for treason, Buck must prove that what they saw is not what they saw. That there is a deeper more secretive meaning to the mess and Buck is innocent of the charges.

THE OPINION:

You've found my least favorite episode from season two because several things bugged me about it. One, if they were on Earth where was Dr. Elias Huer and Dr. Theopolis to defend them against this nonsense. Two, it is a none fact, even in 1981 that nuclear radiation, the magnetic residue from nuclear radiation would destroy VHS tape, I don't remember where they said they found it. But unless it was lead lined it should have been destroyed. Next, the title, the writer convicted him before the episode started. Lastly, since there was no evidence of life or inhabitable planets where did they escape for him to go. It's not he planned on being frozen. Worst Buck Rogers episode, EVER!
