One of the last great TV action shows
31 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sam Jones is highly underrated, both as an action actor/tough guy and a great person in real life. The Highwayman, to me, was one of the last great action series and had all the elements I like, even if they are cheesy. It had the tough guy, the wise-cracking sidekick (Jacko), the hot babe (Jane Badler) and the trusted associate (Tim Russ). Plus, to top it all off, the great William Conrad did the narration. You can't beat all that. But, it didn't escape the axe of the TV execs. Another casualty, among many others (like The Phoenix). I have the complete series from the original airings with all the original commercials intact. The regular pilot is Terror On The Blacktop. Epguides.com lists a previous movie called Road Ranger. Does anyone have any details about this movie? I've never seen it and would like to get my hands on it.
