Scifi Movies/70's sci fi


When I was a kind in the mid 70ís I remember seeing a sci-fi TV movie or series pilot.  About all I can recall is it was a tail of a man from our current time that is put in suspended animation and wakes up thousands of years in the future.  The only other detail I can recall is that his nemeses are robed figures and they use a flute like device as a weapon.  Not much to go on I know, but I stumbled on to your site and thought you could help.

Hello Andy

This sounds like "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century" (1979)


"A 20th century astronaut is revived out of 500 years of suspended animation to become the greatest hero of a future Earth."

Hope this has helped.


Update: "Genesis" II (1973)

I have been a sci-fi fan all my life, and can answer virtually any questions on Fictional robots, cyborgs,androids,computers and CG life forms from movies, comics, TV etc.., I am currently writing an A-Z guide of robots, androids, cyborgs etc. I have collected sci-fi robots and action figures since I was a child and have over 5000 action figures to date. I have a vast knowledge base of Sci-fi movies and characters and the actors who have played various sci-fi and superhero related characters. I can also answer questions on Marvel comics related characters, especially the Avengers. If a fictional character has been played by more than one actor I can tell you all the actors who have played that character, where they appeared and what year.


I am writing a book on Sci-fi robotic characters, which contains some 1'200 entires aswell as another book entitled "List of actors who played", listing fictional characters and the various actors who have played them. I have collected and read untold sci-fi related books,comics,toys,figurines and movies.

I am a member of various Sci-Fi clubs, Forums on the internet and Sc-fi related events.

I have posted many top 10 sci-fi related lists on forums like friends circle and other comic and sci-fi related forums. Lists include: My Top 20 Sci-Fi Robots of all time, List of Actors who played: Dr Who, Superman, Batman etc, etc, aswell as answering questions on various other forums relating to Science Fiction, Fantasy and comic book subjects.

I believe if there was a phd in Science Fiction I would have it. I have won many trivia events relating to to this subject and come 2nd and 3rd in general knowledge because of my knowledge in this field.

Awards and Honors
Well I am hoping the Books I am writing will indeed reward me for the work I have done on this subject.
