TV Show Of The Day

Believe it or not, it's just Jack from Big Wednesday

The Greatest American Hero was one of those shows that was incredibly popular, that I loved, and yet never really watched.

The problem was that it aired at 9 PM on Fridays, directly opposite Knight Rider. And as much as I loved the theme song, there was no contest.

So now it's just one of those old, forgotten early 80's shows that I think back to fondly, but can't actually recall any of the episodes. Kind of like The Fall Guy (which also had a kick ass theme song).

Speaking of theme songs, my son's new favorite song is "da moon and nordic city"...better known as Arthur's Theme by Christopher Cross.

A chip off the old block I guess, with the same guilty taste for schmaltz.

I always liked William Katt, especially as Jack. The Greatest American Hero aired from 1981 to 1986 and even if I watched few episodes at the time... I can't remember a single plot either!

PS: I'm ashamed to say I still have C. Cross Soundtrack vinyl somewhere at my folks' house...oh well I was a pre-teen in those early 80's...
