    “…Lashing of Glen Larson-produced gallivanting…”

    The man they call Glen Larceny had nothing – repeat, NOTHING – to do with this show; you want fellow Universal TV veteran Kenneth Johnson (“The Bionic Woman,” the original “V” miniseries but not the followups, and the “Alien Nation” series). Come on, BBC2 even interviewed Johnson for “I Love The ’70s” about it!

    Larson did do a Marvel-inspired series of his own in the ’90s with “NightMan,” but the less said about that the better. Suffice to say it made “Manimal” look worthy of 30 Emmys and the odd BAFTA.

    Thank you, er, Cindylover1969. Larceny duly (some might say dully) removed. This new leaving-comments-system pays early dividends! Now, when is someone going to spot the Spider-man mistake?

    Not much of a pleasant existance. Wandering around the back roads of the Americas stealing clothes off people’s washing lines.

    One episode reused footage of the tanker from Duel.
