Storyline

In this failed TV series pilot from the mind of Glen A. Larson, Shelley, a slightly-crazy heiress, discovers that her eccentric millionaire uncle Jason Carr was rather more eccentric than even she had thought--he was a costumed superhero in his spare time, half of a duo calling itself "Captain Chameleon and the Paraclete of Justice." Now Shelley must find out exactly who murdered her uncle, with the help of her uncle's mysterious and handsome partner in fighting crime. Written by Christopher E. Meadows <cmeadows@nyx.cs.du.edu>

Wheww....this was BAD!!
13 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember I had just gotten out of college and my father and I sat down to watch a new super hero flick on TV. What we got wasn't super or heroic. This was a stinkfest. I was sorry I had brought it up to the old man. The costumes were bad. They looked like white spandex with a white cape and some funky shoulder pads. Don't get me started on the car.... the CAR-Meleon (yup they called their car that) was so slow that almost any car could catch it...but it could change colors. That would be nice if the car didn't have a very unique shape. All in all, very bad attempt. I enjoyed the 1070's Spiderman TV show more. I hear Stan Lee had a hand in it too. He has lost his touch. Stan, retire and stop making cameos in movies. It's gotten old....
