For a syndicated show, hell, for a TV series period..S.J. had many well thought out and exciting/though provoking scripts and Carl weathers proved yet again that given the right vehicle,scripts, etc he can deliver and he did for 2 seasons in spades!!
Strange enough most of my favorite TV shows and most of the best made/done TV shows from the late 80's -early-mid 1990's were made inside & outside the USA and were syndicated! he-he. Ex. "highlander the series, forever knight, silk stalkings, renegade" etc.
If given another shot on the small screen it could have run another yr or 2 and it was one of my favorite shows as well as most of my friends..we all loved Carl weathers (we are/were bodybuilders) and Carl was and still is in just awesome shape! Carl kicks ass and is an underrated acting talent.
I'm not sure if he could carry a series well into his 50's but if he's willing to crank it up again I'd watch!!
How about 'ACTION JACKSON 2'?? DVD RELEASE OF THIS SERIES IS A MUST!!
TV today is a joke.. besides will & grace (winding down finally) and a few others, its all reality crap TV, dip shits eating bugs or jumping off cliffs naked or "real world" n survivor. If only we could hark-en back to a time not to long ago when so many shows were well produced (and for a fraction of the cost of most network shows these days!!) well made, had better acting, more action etc.
if that were the case, I might watch network TV again..but, until then i will just stick with cable original programming and watching these old great shows like street justice, highlander!
