Loved it. Loved it, Loved it.... Please Put It On DVD.........
30 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

OMG this was a weekly ritual in the 80s with Knight Rider and Airwolf..... And all those other shows we used to watch.

I recall this show started after the movie Tron came out as other folk have mentioned. I just ate this stuff up as a kid......

The things I remember most about the show were the main character himself, and the car they drove. Poor Walter banging his head on the window whenever they would make a sharp corner turn.

Though there were only 13 episodes I'd pay to see this again on DVD if for only the nostalgic value. Shows like this were fun. Hopefully if enough people find these pages and make enough positive comments someone with the power to make that happen might take notice...
