We were a bit skeptical when we first heard earlier this year about a web series based on the classic sci-fi comic Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.

James Cawley, whose Cawley Entertainment Company had obtained the rights to the character created back in 1928, said he was aiming for a "retro-contemporary" look to the show. But what exactly did that mean? And he also announced that he hoped to release 20 Buck Rogers episodes a year, starting in late in 2010.

We have no idea whether he'll be able to accomplish such an ambitious slate, but as for that look? From what we've seen in the just-released teaser trailer, we now know what he meant. And we like it.
