I assume you're talking USA the channel? I don't remember it ever being on syndication. I'd love to see it again. I was always curious what happened at the end. I vaguely remember the episode where the aliens came back and he and Maxwell went up on the ship. I think he learned how to use the suit but then something happened to mess him up again. It's funny 'cause I totally remember the first episode when he lost the instruction booklet.

WTF is that? I thought he was the Greatest American Hero, he cant even fly.

He can't fly 'cause when he got the suit from the aliens out in the desert, he accidentally dropped the "instruction manual." He had to try using the suit without knowing how all the powers worked. If you get the box set, you get both seasons plus the cape and instruction manual.

As far as the Seinfeld clip in that video I put up, I did that with our answering machine. G-Lady accidentally erased it after a while. She was embarrassed when the phone rang.

The cape looks cool anyways.

Ah a Stephen Cannell classic. I was thinking of something else. They don't make tv like that anymore. Hilarious voicemail thing too.

I loved that show when I was younger, and it was starting reruns, but I can't say that the look is the same. It's like the Bill Bixby/ Lou Feragino Hulk series. For me it is more nostalgic, But I would still buy it.

I got the first season of Doctor Who instead. Both of them were $100 but I had a coupon for 40% off. I'm sure I'll get GAH eventually.

I remember that series. Man I was a kid when that came out. At the time, I thought it was the greatest show ever.

That's my dilemma. Was it really the greatest show or would it be weak by today's standards?
