In the late 80's & early 90's, live-action action series were making a bit of a comeback on Saturday mornings, albeit in syndication instead of airing on the networks.
Super Force, however, wasn't really meant for kids, even though it was marketed by Viacom as a lunch-hour entry, coupled with Superboy, which we've previously reviewed.
Ken Olandt played an astronaut returning to Earth in the year 2020, only to discover that his brother, a police officer, was killed in the line of duty, and the police weren't exactly moving quick enough to avenge their brother in arms, if you get my drift. Next thing you know, our hero is given a super suit with some gadgets, and sets out to avenge his brother's death, and carry on the crusade against crime in all forms.
Super Force launched with a 2-hour TV-movie that was later broken down into a four-part serial as part of the series. Unfortunately, it lasted just two seasons, as ratings dropped in year 2. Showho uploaded the first half of the episode, "Of Human Bondage". 60's icon Patrick Macnee (ex-The Avengers) is the off-camera announcer, and also played millionaire E. B. Hungerford, who was killed off early, and then an AI computer that had Hungerford's likeness and conscience. Macnee had returned to American television a few years prior in the short-lived primetime series, Gavilan, co-starring with the late Robert Urich, and his last known series gig was as part of an ensemble with Hulk Hogan in Thunder in Paradise nearly 15 years later.......
Here's the intro:
I think it's easy to see that Viacom made a mistake marketing this show as a daytime entry. It belonged in primetime instead, and I think viewers realized this during the second and final season.
