Does anyone remember this show from the 80's? It was friggin' great.

It starred Captain Power as the leader of the last rebellion against the evil robotic forces of Lord Dread. He and the "soldiers of the future" could activate their "power suits" by touching the badges on their uniforms. There was Tank, the flying dude, the girl (who died in one of the episodes!)... it was geared toward kids and had a GREAT toy line, which somehow led to the show's demise (see site.) The dark undertones and "black-utopia" qualities that lingered in the show really hooked me to the show. Too bad it only lasted a season.

If only there was a way I could somehow obtain the episodes... I'd be one happy camper.

I think I remember that show.

Did it have a guy with a robotic arm?

Or a robot whose mouth glowed when he talked?

Or was the main character a kind of space-cowboy with a robotic arm?

Because I kinda think I saw that show.

Don't get digitized

I had the gun plane where you shot it at the t.v and if the magical lazers from the t.v hit your plane it would eject the pilot.

I had a Phantom Striker myself.

Carni's on-the-job body count: Probably over 100 by now. I usually don't try to save them if nobody's looking....

this vaguely sounds like a show I saw when I was so young, I can barely remember actually seeing it.

Did it have people shooting each other with laz0rs, after which they turned into glittering silhouettes which either disappeared or folded in on themselves? Or something like that?

There's only one season, IDIOT.

We have a lunchbox for the show, don't know why, I didn't even know it was a tv show
