What did they do to this show?
4 May 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The Highwayman movie that led to the series was action packed and innovative.The semi truck could actually vanish into thin air...(invisible in other words) on command.When the series started,the semi truck was different,and it couldnt go into invisible mode.With lame ratings they thought up the idea to bring Jacko "Energizer Battery Man" (OY!!!) aboard.He couldnt act a lick.Sam Jones always seemed too cocky on the show,sorta like Michael Knight of Knight Rider.I guess with a rig like that MACK,he could be cocky,but the ratings shot him down in the end.The final episode was even on the cheap...scenes from the episode two weeks earlier were re-used as filler.Even TV Guide caught that blatant cheap-out in its review.Heck,with careful editing,the show could have ran many years...with existing footage!! Not a good way to build an audience or to be taken seriously.
