They should remake this as a movie
29 March 2004 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

I'm only half joking. This show as a mixture of Smokey & the Bandit, Dukes of Hazzard (which was probably a bigger influence), and Clint Eastwood's Every Which Way but Loose. NBC probably thought they had a real blockbuster on their hands, but I don't remember this being on for very long (maybe one season?) But as an eleven year old, I loved it. Greg Evigan, from what I remember, was appealing in an everyman, Kurt Russell type of way. I think he made some B movies after this, but never became a household name.

Hollywood take note: Mission Impossible. Charlie's Angels. Mod Squad. The Hulk. Starsky & Hutch. The Dukes of Hazzard. BJ and the Bear! "Bear is family."
