My favourite TV Show
28 April 2001 | by (Newcastle (Australia)) – See all my reviews

I would rush home from school to watch Jet Jackson. I loved it. He always had the best fist fights (actually his stunt double looked like a real boxer) - Icky was also a treat in these fights as well ! Now I'm trying to collect videos of the series (can anyone help out there ??). Watching the episodes now seems almost as satisfying as 40 years ago - it takes me back to more simpler times when : landing a jet plane on a flat stretch of beach was easy, anything scientific was fabulous and atomic power was the next big thing. There was even an episode where Jet takes a traumatised young boy into his bedroom for the night. The Captain Midnight episodes are a real eye-opener from the point of view of the pervasive use of advertising (Ovaltine). "Be the first in your gang to have a Secret Squadron Emblem" (courtesy of a jar of Ovaltine). I can't get enough of Jet Jackson
