Quotes

[opening segment of the series after the credits]
Colt Seavers: [narrating] This is the story of one of America's great unsung heroes. I mean you've seen him, but you never knew who he was. You've cheered for him and cried for him and women have wanted to die for him. But did he ever get any credit, or the girl? No! He's what we call the "Stuntman", and the reason I'm talking so fondly about him is, well because it's me, Colt Seavers. Anyway, picture work isn't wall-to-wall employment, so maybe you wonder how ...

Fun, entertaining show with action & humour aplenty
29 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Both seasons of this show offer good, undemanding entertainment with a nice blend of action and humour. Perfect viewing for a Sunday afternoon, or whenever you want to relax & be entertained by a TV show, I'd say.

Good idea to have a trio (sometimes quartet) of main characters – this brings a nice interaction between a group of regular characters which fills out the show and gives it an extra lift, adding personality to the show (a regular writer's technique, but always good to see it in action and working as well as it does here).

Some episodes also feature circa 1980s Country music on their soundtracks – though some of this was changed for the DVD releases because of copyright - so the show can be pretty easy on the ear too!
