Welcome to the full first season of The Fall Guy. This is an 80's TV show that is a bit cheesy but lots of fun.
Colt Seavers (Lee Majors) is a professional stunt man. But like most people in the entertainment business, he finds that doesn't cover all of his bills. So he also works as a bounty hunter for bail bondswoman Samantha Jack (Jo Ann Pflug). Helping him out are his cousin Howie (Douglas Barr) and his protege Jody (Heather Thomas). And it's a good thing he can do stunts, too, because that ability comes in mighty handy when the crooks run.
This is an action show. And when you consider this was a TV show, it's pretty amazing the stunts they do. Each episode usually features one movie stunt and then several more "real life" stunts as Colt works to catch his man. While we get plenty of car chases and jumps, there are some truly spectacular stunts, especially in the first half.
The cast does a great job and they are obviously having fun together. Unfortunately, Heather Thomas is underused as Jody, sometimes being reduced to just a cameo. And speaking of cameos, they've got an impressive list of cameos from Tom Selleck to Farrah Fawcette and Herve Villechaize.
This season of the show got three releases, this set and two sets that broke the season up into two halves. I recommend this set. It contains everything from those two sets at the same price. Why get two when you can get one?
This is a guy's action show with impressive stunts. It's 80's television, but still lots of fun today.
