    "If Only There Were More Of These!"

    I didn't really know much about Tom Corbett before listening to this, but I'm a fan now! It's a real throw back to the Golden Age of Science Fiction complete with roaring rocketships, laser pistols, colonies throughout the solar system, and square-jawed heroes defending the Solar System from threats in outer space. However, like all good adaptations, these tropes are given a 21st century makeover while still retaining the fun of times on by.

    All of the voice actors did an excellent jobs performing the story, and a round of applause for the sound engineers and their work on the special effect sounds. This was actually adapted from a series of comics by Bluewater, which is good not only because it lead me to this but...well, let's face it, what where the artist thinking on those comics?!

    Maybe it could have been longer, I would have liked that, but it was adapting only about three or so issues. At least a sequel, an original Colonial Radio Theater production I might add, has since been released, with hopefully more to come.

    All in all a great escape that feels like listening to a Silver Age comic come to life (in a good way). If you're into science fiction or comics, or looking to be introduce to the Colonial Radio Theater, start with this. You'll be glad you did.

    "Rollicking Pulp Space Adventure"
    Would you listen to Tom Corbett Space Cadet again? Why?

    I would listen to it again - the soundscape and detail were very good.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a pulp adventure in the best styling of the golden age of Science Fiction.

    Any additional comments?

    Very nicely done! Still retained a little of the flavor of the old Tom Corbet radio show but it has been up dated with modern vocabulary and sound effects. IMHO the plot and characters were as complex and well done as most of the original Star Trek episodes. I hope the Colonial Radio Players will make more of these. If you are a sci fi fan give it a try, you'll probably be as pleasantly surprised as I was.
