Premiering in 1981 on ABC, The Greatest American Hero chronicles the misadventures of unlikely hero and school teacher Ralph Hinkley (William Katt) and FBI Special Agent Bill Maxwell (Robert Culp).
The unlikely team have an unexpected encounter with aliens in the desert and are charged with working together to save the world. They gift Ralph with a powerful red suit endowed with superhuman powers and the pair set out to fight crime. The biggest problem is the fact that Ralph loses the suit’s instruction manual. His girlfriend and attorney, Pam Davidson (Connie Selleca), often helps Ralph and Bill with their missions.
This two-disc set includes all eight episodes from the first season, as well as a bonus interview with creator Stephen J. Cannell.

It was funnhy, sometimes touching, and gave Robert Culp–a hero–another chance.
Hey everybody, UFO party in Palmdale!
A great, feel-good series from my teen years. I even have the theme song on my iPod!
I sing this song all the time. What a great show.
I remember this series!
