Part of trend that happened at the end.
2 May 2004 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

The '80s were full of niche programming. This show happened to be one of car-focused action shows that followed in the steps of Knight Rider, The A-Team, Airwolf, Street Hawk, Dukes of Hazzard, and very possibly Automan. The show, obviously a retread of Automan (which featured a holographic helicopter and Lamborghini), a torquing of an idea from the "Goliath" episodes of Knight Rider, or a combination between Knight Rider and Airwolf, the show's only fault was that it came at the very end of this tread and wasn't long for this world. If it came out three years earlier, it would be easily ran for 13 episodes plus and had a better run. And I'm quite surprised nobody mentioned the car that came out of the bottom of the semi trailer and sped off.

Here's hoping this comes out on DVD along with many other '80s one shot efforts.
