A typical case of a show being built around a star,and in this case its a Dodge Viper.The original NBC shows were imaginative and futuristic,with Chrysler being in every scene (future Mopar prototypes got air time,a 1971 'Cuda and a 70 Challenger appeared,and of course the Viper).One episode even featured a 1950s Ford Concept car (it was a handmade clone though)...the car that eventually became the Batmobile at the hands of George Barris.They called the car the Baxley on the show,due to a Mr Baxley being the focus of that episode.A unique show that was unfortunately doomed from its conception. When NBC dropped the show,Dorian Harewood was dropped as well,Gerraro was gone,and so was Astor the "star" of the show.Syndication brought a new driver,a female support member,and a female partner.Franklin Walters remained,but his character was tweaked and not for the good either.Astor returned for the final season,and the female computer specialist disappeared.Would be nice if they could air the NBC episodes again...or on DVD.
