Once upon a time there was an obscure TV series from the 1970’s called Salvage-1. The plot of the TV movie that started it all had Andy Griffith’s character building a nifty rocket from materials found in a junkyard. They then staged a lunar mission to salvage the Apollo equipment NASA left behind on the moon. The series that followed had his team of experts doing all sorts of challenging but improbable salvage operations.
The original series isn’t available on DVD but, seriously, I think Salvage-1 would be a good candiate for a modern remake. Especially considering we have shows devoted to building cool things from junk, and even real live private spacecraft. That’s pretty cool, even if they aren’t moon rockets powered by magical fuels and piloted by Andy Griffith.
