    It's one of those weird didn't last more than a season shows from the 80's like Automan. Basically guy turns into things and the effects and plot are very bad. This one guy turns into any animal he wants.

    That faint sound you hear in the distance is the sound of Brad Jones squeeing.

    Wait... as in Manimal, the short-lived 80s TV series where a man found ever-more contrived reasons to turn into an animal (with more stock footage than an episode of Transformers: Cybertron) to solve crimes?

    Same here.

    Manimal was one of my favorite shows from the 80's.Was it cheesy as hell? Absolutely,but it still kicked ass when he turned into a panther or a hawk.

    Sucks it didn't last too long back then.

    I loved that show, when I was a kid. I still remember the Nightman episode with Manimal and his daughter. The effects weren't much better....

    Well Manimal began in September of 1983. It was about Dr. Jonathan Chase; a man with the darkest of pasts and the brightest of futures. It wasn't long before he gained the ability to change into any animal he damn well pleases.
    (if you want to hear the rest just listen to the Nostalgia Critic Jaws 3D review)

    In regards to this news, this is starting to get sad. Freaking Manimal gets a movie before The Flash or Wonder Woman does.

    Theres nothing to screw up with a manimal movie.
    "So whats the plot?"
    "Guy turns into animals."
    "And?"
    "And Nothing. Turns. Into. Animals."
    "Thats an easy script."
    "Now, what about The Flash"
    "Oooo, how about he got his powers from aliens, better yet, hes an alien, that when in earth gravity can run fast...."
