In a brief interview for a Hawaiian newspaper, Jeffrey Meek said that he fought for the development of the character to have a stronger focus on history and the mythology of the past, but felt the show lost sight of the original intent or never fully understood it. See more »
I still enjoy the pilot and its a half way decent action show.But as the show went on a lot of it was very cheesy and generic.The plots for the most part were very by the number for a show like this.The writing wasn't especially creative or ground breaking.Majors seemed to be playing it a bit over the top at times.Sometimes he seemed like a competent trained side kick.Other times he came off as an eccentric old coot who i wouldn't trust anywhere near a loaded weapon.
Also found it to be a bit misogynistic.All of the women are portrayed as either weak inept villains who are easily taken out by the lead or helpless victims who need to be saved.This would feel normal for any pre-90s TV show.But here it feels a little ridiculous and out of place.
