Man, that looks so cheesy. Is it just me, or were they trying really hard to make "Bandit" look like "Swan" from "the warriors"(leather vest without shirt, hair-cut and all).
I wonder if this show is where the idea for "21 jump st." came from?

Wow. It's like the "21 Jumpstreet" that should have been. On the other hand, I'm really glad that I never knew this show existed.

I love how that inrto shot of Tracy has her hair tucked in her jacket so at first we're all "Who is this guy with his back towards us?", and then she flips out the hair and turns around and we're all "Whoah! it's some hot chick!"... Classic.

This looks amazing. I love failed short-lived tv shows too, such as Master Ninja which was on MST3K.

Holy Crispy Crap

I actually remember this....
excuse me whilst I sit myself down and brace for any other repressed memories that might flood through now that the gates to the Summer of 82 have swung wide....

Bandit definitely looks a lot like Swan, even trying to pick up a girl while wandering the streets.

Those shows that never make it up or some more seasons usually have a strange charm that the general public frequently overlooks. I just remember some relatively recent shows that aired for just one friggin' season and were awesome: Keen Eddie and Firefly.

The best thing about this is Red freaking Foreman is in this!

Also I think Virgil Springs bears a striking resemblance to Dum Dum Dugan.

Hey, it's Tracy Scoggins! Loved her in Babylon 5. She was pretty sexy in Demonic Toys as well.

Great article from ya once again -RoG-, didn't know the human face could make that expression in your Renegade debute though.

It's odd-- at first, shows were completely unrealistic. Now-a-days, they're so realistic, that they're unrealistic, again.

What we need is a good medium point, where they're realistic in certain ways, but not in others in order to maximize entertainment.

Like-- a lot of what they did in this series, so it appears, was 'showy,' just to give a certain air, a certain feel. (Whatsherface skating around the rink for no apparent reason, for example)
It seems like a good idea, but maybe they just took it too far. Dunno. Makes me lose some faith in the film industry as a whole. How is it possible to make a good movie?

Wasn´t this actually a spin-off show off the Warriors?
