Airing on local TV in 1986, this show featured a group of performers called "The Summer Action Dancers" with host Lorenzo Lamas introducing each dance number. They danced to many current hits and some classic ones like Born to be Wild. We didn't have cable at our house yet and this was the only thing worth watching at the time along with G.L.O.W. Wrestling.
My favorite dancer was Cheryl Yamaguchi who had graduated from Pearl City High School in 1982. Back then she came into our store with a see-through boob tube and we could see everything. She just smiled because she knew she was hot. With her solid voluptuous body Cheryl was fun to watch on the show as she pranced around slowly in her colorful lingerie.
I remember a male dancer with white/blonde hair that was trying to emulate Billy Idol (without the spikes). This guy never smiled and always wore a sneer while he danced.
One song I remember them all dancing to was Werewolves of London. The set was smoke filled and there were tombstones all around. It was almost like a ballet as each guy and girl dancer would hold each other, spin, and then branch out their arms or legs in sappy dramatic poses.
The series was really really cheesy and I only watched it for the cheap thrills. My friend and I would record the shows and then check it out in slo-mo to see some slippage when the ladies bent over. Hey - they were wearing loose lingerie and it happened! This show was awful fluff now that I think about it. I give it a 5 out of 10 only because Cheryl was fine!
