Guy from Flash Gordan drives around in a super truck!
2 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

Well i haven't seen this for years, but i remember i did love it as a kid and it had something of a cult following in my class. Don't know if i would still enjoy it as much now I'm all grown up - but i wish they would repeat it so i could see!

Basically Sam Jones' character "the Highway man" drove around in a big truck with his Austrailian friend. They were both government agents or something. But the basic premise was that the truck had super powers or was just very technologically advanced - cant remember which, and the 2 guys Sam and friend were big and butch and were able to win the battles with the bad guys every week. Sounds awful, probably was, but when your only about 10 years old it seemed like the best thing on TV!
