Storyline

Following in the footsteps of "Real People" (1979), this show took a look at the more unusual sides of nature, medicine and human endeavor. Segments ranged from the uplifting (young people overcoming severe handicaps to lead normal lives) to the unexplainable (a park ranger who had been hit by lightning over 7 times) to the simply stupid (a stuntman jumping a motorcycle over the spinning rotors of 3 helicopters). Popularized the phrase "don't try this at home." Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

What was it like to be a kid watching this show in the 80's
22 May 2002 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

In the fall of 1980,ABC-TV presented a show like no other that brought out the most amazing people ever to be seen and brought out some of the most defying and spectacular acts of faith ever assembled.

And for one back in the early 80's,anything was better than watching those lame variety shows and sugarcoated family sitcoms and most of all those dull crime dramas.

This show set the standard for all other reality based shows you see today,and for good reason,this was the original! Man,do I remember watching this show! It had me in sheer intensity from the moment I saw it!

For one,it only ran for four seasons on ABC-TV(from 1980-1984),and it kept you in constant suspense the whole time and those acts were extremely a cliffhanger cause you'll never know what to expect next! Who wouldn't forget hosts John Davidson,Cathy Lee Crosby,and NFL great Fran Tarkelton as they would come on and bring you stories and stunts of the bizarre and amazing beyond belief and the people who turned out to be the unexpected as well as the impossible(most of the stunts were done on the show where our hosts were put into some dangerous and imaginative situations---remember the episode where Cathy Lee kissed a 400-pound killer bear in cage? And the one where this guy put a sharp sword into his mouth,and the one where this Frenchman balanced a table onto a 120 story building with nothing to hold him? And the one were Davidson goes into a pit with a deadly Kimono Dragon?). This show was just that.........

Man,"THAT'S INCREDIBLE!"
