1) To Dave from Puerto Rico: The Nightman was, hands down, the BEST character Malibu comics created before Marvel ruined the series and the company.

2) This movie takes a wonderful street-level character, gives him gadgets he never had in the comics, and turns him into, as one other reviewer put it, a Batman Wannabe. This show is PATHETIC! I started watching it and figured, "Okay. They made some changes. I guess that's to be expected. But I'll give it a chance." Which I did. Right up until the anti-gravity belt came into use. That's when I changed channels. The most high tech gadget The Nightman ever used in the comics was his taser (one of the few things Marvel did right when they had him build tasers into his gloves to free up his hands). No flying belt - he got around on a motor cycle. No laser eye - the larger lens was to enhance his night vision. For those who say this show is perfect of there's ABSOLUTELY nothing else on - wrong. If there's nothing better on, that means the cable is out. I'll go watch paint dry, thank you very much.

Batman wannabee

This show used to be on here a few months back at around 12am or 1am in the morning. Unless there is nothing else on. And I mean NOTHING ELSE ON then its funny to watch because its so stupid in its story lines. The acting is poor, too.

How do shows like this keep getting renewed when good shows like Brimstone are cancelled without giving it a chance to live? that's the question you'll be asking yourself after watching one of these episodes. This series is based on the Malibu created/ owned by marvel comics character. a character that quite frankly no one liked in the first place. The special effects are cheesy, the editing is just chillingly bad, the story is just garbage and the acting...well if i had my way i would ban these guys from ever working again in hollywood or i could just look at them and say you're doing this on purpose right?

I talked to one fan of this series and asked her why she even watched it. she told me "its like a car wreck its horrible but you just cant move until its over".

What was Glen Larson thinking???

Author: majapi ( from Sydney, Australia

Glen Larson, make of many fine sci-fi shows must have been having a really bad patch when he made this one. Bad effects, weak concept, cheesy storylines.

We have only just started gettng this down in Australia, thank god they only show it after midnight. Less chance of anyone actually seeing it.
