screencap Friday: what the flick? #121

Friday fun! Here’s a screen capture from a DVD… and just to make things harder for 2010, this one is from a TV show which may or may not be in my collection (it’s sooo much easier to do screengrabs now that Netflix is streaming to my computer). Guess the TV show — you don’t need to guess the episode, just the show — and earn the respect of me and your fellow FlickFilosopher.com readers. One guess per comment — no fair hogging all the guesses.

easter eggs

  • Michael

    Looks like something from the Tollan planet on SG-1.

  • Muzz


  • MaryAnn

    Excellent guesses both, but wrong…

  • Keith

    Has me thinking Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.

  • Arco

    Damn! I was going to say Buck Rogers! And I am beaten to it! Isn’t this Dr Huer’s office building?

  • dafydd

    Wow…hard to narrow this down!

    My fuzzy 38 year old brain knows this was in either Battlestar Galactica or Buck Rogers…or maybe the short lived Logan’s Run series.

    I know it was reused in Otherworld a few years later.

    It’s a bit like that LA lighthouse that croped up in V, and Matt Houston and the A-team et al.

  • Martin

    Quantum Leap?

  • NorthernStar

    Definately Quantum Leap. From the S2 episode Honeymoon Express.

  • I swear that building popped up on a handful of futuristic-themed tv shows, mostly from the late 70s and early 80s.

  • Doug


  • This is way too obscure, but I’m sure I saw that building in “The Lathe of Heaven.”

  • aquila6

    It’s definitely from “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century”.

  • MaryAnn

    I swear that building popped up on a handful of futuristic-themed tv shows, mostly from the late 70s and early 80s.

    That may well be. But this screengrab is indeed from *Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.* So Keith wins!

  • Keith

    Woowho, my second screen cap contest win! Wasn’t sure about my chances with the switch to TV shows, but this is one I did watch quite a bit of when I was younger.

    From what I’ve read, it’s the corner of the San Diego State University Library.

  • Keith

    I also read that some of the stuff used in Buck Rogers had been previously used it the original Battlestar Galactica, so it might have been seen there too.

  • Ken

    I’m really surprised that I’ve never seen the Health Sciences Center at SUNY Stony Brook in more low-budget science fiction: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:SUNY_Stony_Brook_MC2.jpg
