    Anyone watching the greatest american hero block on sci-fi today?
    The last time i saw this show was the 80s so it will be great to see it again. We had the song on record as a kid. (that makes me feel old!)

    Any one else like this show?

    I used to like it but I have a feeling if I saw it now it wouldn't be quite as good.

    the show suffered only 1 flaw- it was made during the 80s.
    i love the show and i actually love the hokey concept that a superhero's costume came with instructions (and a college educated teacher lost them) but the time period and the type of television back then hindered it.

    it saddens me to know that Knight Rider had several relaunches over the years and yet this hasn't been given a shot.

    With shows like Buffy, Angel, Farscape, Stargate, The Chronicle, Invisible Man, etc have proven you can have lighthearted, but well crafted entertainment. I wish that someone (with talent) would give this show a proper relaunch.

    i do miss Robert Culp, he was awesome.

    Even with the curse of the 80s i described, i still love the simplicity of it. good, clean fun. it's like comfort food to me.

    I remember the show to somewhat but never was a fan of it. Oh and Gaastra, you are only about 35 to 40 minutes from me. Thats pretty cool that their is someone else this close to me that loves TF's thats on TFW2005.

    I watched a couple of them, not bad. I remember it being better when I was a kid. Still love the theme song.
