Josephine V. Clark,
Adam Beaudreaux was a soldier in Vietnam, when he got wounded. He was fortunate that a young boy named Grady Jameson, whose parents were missionaries, found him and got him to help. Years later, Beaudreaux is now a cop, and he has also vowed to find Grady, whom he never saw again after that. Eventually he finds and he discovers that Grady's parents were killed and he spent most of his life trying to survive. He would become a martial arts expert. Beaudreaux gives him a job at the bar that he co-owns with Kelsey Malloy. Every now and then Adam has a case wherein he is unable to do anything to help the victim cause legal technicalities, so Grady steps in to help, doing things his way, which sometimes doesn't sit well with Beaudreaux. And someimtes Beaudreaux has to put his job on the line to help Grady when he goes too far. Eventually Adam meets a young gang leader, Miguel Mendez, who after being arrested, Adam takes responsibility for him and like Grady helps Beaudreaux now and then, ... Written by
For a syndicated show, hell, for a TV series period..S.J. had many well thought out and exciting/though provoking scripts and Carl weathers proved yet again that given the right vehicle,scripts, etc he can deliver and he did for 2 seasons in spades!!
Strange enough most of my favorite TV shows and most of the best made/done TV shows from the late 80's -early-mid 1990's were made inside & outside the USA and were syndicated! he-he. Ex. "highlander the series, forever knight, silk stalkings, renegade" etc.
If given another shot on the small screen it could have run another yr or 2 and it was one of my favorite shows as well as most of my friends..we all loved Carl weathers (we are/were bodybuilders) and Carl was and still is in just awesome shape! Carl kicks ass and is an underrated acting talent.
I'm not sure if he could carry a series well into his 50's but if he's willing to crank it up again I'd watch!!
How about 'ACTION JACKSON 2'?? DVD RELEASE OF THIS SERIES IS A MUST!!
TV today is a joke.. besides will & grace (winding down finally) and a few others, its all reality crap TV, dip shits eating bugs or jumping off cliffs naked or "real world" n survivor. If only we could hark-en back to a time not to long ago when so many shows were well produced (and for a fraction of the cost of most network shows these days!!) well made, had better acting, more action etc.
if that were the case, I might watch network TV again..but, until then i will just stick with cable original programming and watching these old great shows like street justice, highlander!
