I was twelve when I ran across this show back in the early 90s. I have to say, I was impressed back then. There was action, the stories were good, and each episode was interesting. Carl Weathers was coming off his 80s fame from movies such as Action Jackson and Predator. The rest of the cast were relatively unknown, at least on the 12 year old circuit.
Of course, there is always the story of the breakout star. In season two, Boudreax got a new partner named Eric Rothman, played by a then unknown actor named Eric McCormack who would end up on a little show called Will and Grace.
Bryan Genesse has gone on to infamy in the B movie circuit. Granted, he has potential. If given the right scripts and marketing, he could be a contender in the action movie business, but he makes the B versions for now.
There was just the right mix of action and dramatic scenes to keep the show from falling into a creative rut. I wish it had lasted longer and that it would be released on DVD.
