THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO (1981) ***

In this pilot to the short lived but fun TV show, William (Carrie) Katt is a teacher who is given a suit by aliens that has super powers. He teams up with FBI man Robert (I Spy) Culp and lawyer Connie (PS I LUV U) Selleca to stop a bunch of bald headed terrorists from killing the President. Katt loses the instruction manual to the suit so he has to learn to fly from scratch and says “Damn!” a lot. With series regulars Michael (Eddie and the Cruisers) Pare and guest star G.D. (The Godfather 2) Spradlin. Katt and Culp’s chemistry makes this (and the series, now out on DVD) fun to watch. From omnipresent 80’s TV producer Stephen J. (The A-Team) Cannell.
