It comes out on DVD this summer but I don't know much about it really. I was only 3 or 4 when it was on and I don't recall ever watching it. Is it a good well written show? why did it only last a single season?

Personally, I liked BRING EM' BACK ALIVE better! Both Indy knock off adventure TV shows!

Good news, a few years back I was thinking about getting Bootleg DVD's of the series. Nice to see someone else remembers the show. It was Indy-like set in WW2 and all. Don't remember seeing Bring Em' back alive.

Bring Em' Back Alive intro....

Intro

Starred Bruce Boxleitner as Frank Buck. The two shows were kinda similar. I just remember this one the best. But I liked both!

I'm stoked. Never thought a show like this would get the green light. Heck, Growing Pains seasons 2 and beyond aren't even or may never be in legal circulation.

I had that "10 year's old excited" moment when I got an automatic email announcement from Amazon that it was coming and I could pre-order. Amazon is great that way where you can sign up to be notified when something becomes available even if it is nowhere on the horizon. I had signed up for this, Matinee and others about a year ago...

Yep, this sure was a poor man's Indy and it never tried to hide the fact, but it was totally cool in an 80' rip off sort of way! Stephen Collins was awesome and I loved the dog...Along with Battlestar, Voyagers and yes Battlestar 80, this will claim a place on my shelf and in my wallet! Can't wait! [Big Grin]

I feel the same way! All I see is Reverend ****ing Camden [Mad] I still have nightmares about that disneyfied, leave it to beaver, bible selling, toothache inducing horror of a tv show!!! Whyyyyyy did I ever watch two seconds of that crap! I must be a masochist!

Jay Lee - I could be wrong, but I am betting it was probably less because of its wholesome family fun and more because of Jessica Biel.

Possible?

Yeah...me too. [Wink]
