Good action,poor plots
4 September 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This series only lasted a couple weeks on ABC.I think it was a knock off of Dukes Of Hazzard.Instead of their 69 Charger,the BAD CATS had a late 60s Chevy Nova (must have used 3 different ones at least)that was totally thrashed in the 2 hour debut movie.Lots of jumps,and car chases (one with a hearse),but lousy acting and plot.Michelle Pffiefer was on the show,with a phoney southern accent.Good action music and stunts,but not much else.Jimmy Walker played a car thief,thats kinda funny,as when he was on CANNON,a William Conrad starred crime-show, he had quite a few outtakes,as he couldn't drive a car. Will this show ever make DVD? Probably not,not at least until every other program gets to DVD,and then they may HAVE to with nothing else to offer.
