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.

One of the most creative shows of the early 80’s
ah a blast from the past, was a fun show
I used to love this show
Robert Culp was always funny in the show. I bought season three from a store that was going out of business, could not find the other two seasons though. The best part is the DVD box plays the shows theme, though I just checked it and the battery must have finally died. I must replace that battery.
I was 5 years old when this show came out and I loved watching it with my dad! I just remember laughing a lot because he was always crashing into things….
I’d like to win this. Really liked Robert Culp. William Kat is a pretty good actor.
I was a big fan of this show. I watched it every time I got a chance. I can’t wait to watch them again.
Enjoyed the show and the theme song.
I loved this show.
Loved the theme to this show! I remember he would always lose his manual to his suit!
I liked the show. I’d also like to win. Works well that way.
What young boy didn’t have a crush on Connie Sellecca?? She got me through puberty.. The show was the defintion of “guilty pleasure” television.
That makes two of us!
I never did see what happened when the aliens came back a second time and he lost another instruction manual.
Believe it or not, I’d like to win this….
