Worth a look.

This is the only episode of Big Man that i have seen, and the main reason i tracked it down was due to the presence of John Steiner playing the villain. Don't get me wrong though, i am also a big fan of Spencer, and this is all in all pretty enjoyable stuff.

Although possibly a little overlong, Boomerang is entertaining if somewhat predictable. Bud plays very much to type, and the plot is at best clichéd, but in the end who cares. You don't watch stuff like this for great social commentary.

Steiner as the chief bad lad is as good as you would expect, giving a neat, professional performance.

Hard to locate, but worth the effort.
