Storyline

Randolph Spencer and Martin Brubaker were ex-Navy SEALS-turned-mercenaries who hired themselves out as soldiers of fortune for a very high fee. On their missions, Spence and Bru relied heavily on Thunder, which was a souped-up, gadget-ridden speedboat originally built by Spence for the U.S. Government Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Trivia

Hulk Hogan parted ways with the World Wrestling Federation, in order to film this series. Hulk got his job with World Championship Wrestling as a result of filming Thunder in Paradise in the studio next to WCW's, at Disney World. According to Ric Flair, WCW President Eric Bischoff asked Flair to organize a meeting with Hogan. Flair & Bischoff visited Hulk on location in the swamp area of St. Petersburg, where Hogan was filming a scene for Thunder in Paradise, and held the meeting in Hulk's trailer. When Bischoff told Hogan how much money the Turner organization was willing to pay him to work for WCW, Hulk immediately accepted WCW's offer, and decided he had had enough of the grueling filming schedule for Thunder in Paradise.

Thuuuuuuuuuunder, thunder in paradise. There's a hurricane a blowing near over the water. Waiting in anticipation for the action to begin.

I still remember the theme tune from when I used to watch it as a teenage. I used to like the boat and the nice location, it's kinda like poor mans Airwolf or Knight Rider (Or Knight Boat from The Simpsons.) I used to like it as a kid but i'll probably hate it now.
