Storyline

"HAMMERED: The Best of Sledge" (Laserdisc) - Prepare yourself for four crime stories that pack more punch than Sledge Hammer's trusty Magnum. And loaded with more misadventure than there is air between Sledge's ears. Our hero find himself up against the likes of the infamous Elvis impersonator serial killer, a powerful Mafioso Don, the sex-starved Elizabeth, and a violent revolutionary. Armed only with a Magnum, grenades, several Uzi machine-guns, and a bazooka, our hero singlehandedly makes the streets safe again for law-abiding citizens. Written by <damour@sanders.com>

A true great
9 June 2000 | by (Aberdeen) – See all my reviews

This is one of the greatest TV comedies that has ever been produced. Episodes like "All Shook Up" (the Elvis impersonators one) and "Hammeroid" (the Robocop spoof) will stay with me forever. Today's comedies can't hold a candle to this. It discovered irony and satire 10 years before the rest of America. "Trust me- I know what I'm doing!" should have been a catchprase for one of Ronald Reagan's campaigns, it summed up the spirit of an age that is no more, like this sublime show...<sob>
