Jacko sank this show!


Of course this is just my opinion. I did watch the pilot film and thought to myself that once again, the network killed a rather good show before it could find it's audience. Then I watched the first episode, with a redone cast, and when the actor(?) Jacko debuts in his first scene, it became very apparent why this show never had a chance. This, Jacko, is about as subtle as a two-by-four upside your head. I actually cringed every time he would screech his lines. The fact that a casting director thought that this person, who at the time his only claim to fame for people in the US, was yelling in battery commercials, was an interesting personality for this show tells me that someone decided to commit career suicide.

The only scene I recall from the show involved Jacko. They were transporting mannequin parts and some hijackers stopped the truck. Jacko was inside and when they opened the back. He said "I just wanted to give you a hand. Here's a hand". He handed the bad guy a plastic hand, said "And here's another!" and proceeded to slug the hijacker.

Total camp and stupidity, but enjoyable if that is what you like. As I recall, Sledge Hammer! aired about the same time.

And you gave her a land mine? Really?
Well, it seemed appropriate at the time.

Naw.

Used to love this show, but 30-ish years later, I completely forgot Sam J "Flash Gordon" Jones was the lead. Most of what I remember was Jacko... and uh Jane Badler.
