The TV show aired for only 12 episodes, which was a bit disappointing, but The Brendon Chase (1980) was only just around the corner. There were six members in The Red Hand Gang: Frankie (Mathew Laboteaux), Doc (James Bond III), Joanne (Jolie Newman), Lil' Bill (Johnny Brogna), J.R. (J.R. Miller), and Boomer the dog (who went on to have his own TV show Here's Boomer). Each episode they would come into contact with real criminals and have an adventure, using their detective skills to solve the crime and catch the bad guys (the first five episodes comprised of one adventure). They had a special symbol, the red hand from their own hand prints, to mark where they had been.
I never missed an episode and after we would all meet up and become The Red Hand Gang for a few hours, until we were called for dinner. Yes, we were the kids from the late 1970s-early 1980s. No internet or mobile phones, IPods or IPads, no laptops or netbooks (even the Atari 2600 or the Commodore 64 hadn't quite reached us).Read more ›
The stories are quite good, if more appealing to kids and maybe tense to a kid but I found it somewhat annoying at times - like someone about to find your hiding place and then suddenly someone distracts them. For kids the characters were ok.
The one downside to it all though was the constant recapping of the story so far, maybe they could have given the option to skip those. I find voiceovers annoying at the best of times, three separate stories seemed like an eternity when they probably only last an hour or so overall. From time to time it felt like a chore to get through the stories
I'd only recommend this if it's for a kid to watch, or if you watched it as a kid. Worth watching, but not something I personally would re-watch that often. It's kind of like a Goonies for TV, there are plenty of kids turned detectives shows around, funny how they ALWAYS happen to be in the right place at the right time - or wrong place depending on your perspective

I loved this as a boy, and am pleased my 5 year old enjoys it, too. Some may find it a bit dated, compared to more modern offerings, but hard to beat.Published on 2 Sept. 2013 by TEJ
