What is your favourite non cartoon TV Super Hero? Mine is William Katt as Ralph Hinkley/Hanley alias The Greatest American Hero. This seemed what a real super-hero would do in near real life, and was great fun, but not silly, and plenty of action with good and non formalistic plots. For those who dont know the series it was about a school teacher Ralph Hinkly who was given a super heroes costume by aliens, which when worn gave him super powers. The big problem was he lost the instruction book how to use the costume. Also he was the teacher of a rough class, was a single parent, but had an ex, and would want the child back if she found out about the costume. He also had a friend, friend! a FBI agent he did missions for, Robert Culp as Bill Maxwell, which the word subtle was not in his dictionary, but gung-ho on every other with right wing on the others to that. He got in some fine predicaments, could not fly proper, he once went to the toilet to change into his costume and found it all wet on the floor round the toilet basin (this never happend to Superman), almost got declared a mental case, but always came trough in the end. Some of the team behind it, was behind The Rockford Files. It was quite popular in the states but was put up against a more popular program and with some other problems the rating fell, it was then cancelled. When it was shown here it was not networked, and was put on in the morning in most regions that did show it, so never reattached the popularity it deserved. This was 1 hour of sheer pleasure and always left me with a smile on my face and wanting next week to rush by to see the episode. Unfortunately not all of the series were shown in my region. This was about the same time as The A-Team which was given a prime time of 5:15 on a Saturday afternoon. That was my favourite, the second was The Flash, for some reason was never picked up by the main channels, probably he didnt cook, design gardens, did interior decorating, and wasnt a reality program. If it comes to cartoons, mines the X-Men.
