Commenting on it simply because I REMEMBER it. Kind of.
26 June 2008 | by commonistSee all my reviews

I remember seeing the commercial for this show when I was a little kid.

I remember something like this: Jack Elam is standing there with smoke coming out of him, when someone asks him, "What happened?" He replies, "I was, uh, struck by lightning," real deadpan-like.

Am I just making that up? Or did it really happen?

So here you go...the guidelines say you have to have ten lines of text. How can you do that for a show that only lasted three episodes and doesn't ever even make it onto those "Worst TV shows of all time" lists? I've already said everything I remember about this show that everyone on earth seems to have forgotten.
