The late '80s and early '90s spawned same great first run syndicated shows and "Lightning Force" was one of them. This was an era when independent stations still had time to show syndicated re-runs or first run shows. "Lightning Force" had a lot of decent action and stories. Apparently it wasn't marketed and advertised as well, otherwise, MAYBE more people would comment here or the show might have lasted more than one season. More people would remember it. "Lightning Force" unfortunately was aired when most people weren't tuned in to their TVs like late night or Saturday afternoon (like where I grew up). It appears that era of first rate syndicated shows are gone. "Lightning Force" could have had a following and/or longer life had it had a good marketing campaign. Now most of those stations that showed these first run syndicated shows seem to lack the time, money, interest or all to air a "Lightning Force" or other quality syndicated show. But then again, Fox, UPN (now defunct), WB (also defunct), and the CB bought out all these stations and hogged all the air time. May the memories of this show and others from the same era stay alive.
