I was about 12 when this first aired and loved watching it as a kid. Yeah, in hindsight it was an attempt to latch on to the popularity of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark that came out the year before but I think it stands on its own as an 'action & adventure' franchise. It was popular when it first came out and the spirit of the show was carried over into the original Disney's Tale Spin animated series.
 

Those are Donald Bellisario production values, for sure. Some crossover cast from Black Sheep Squadron and Magnum.

Why did I never hear of this? I’ll have to track it down on streaming or dvd

They're available on DVD, but UNremastered, and apparently the discs can be kind of hinky when played on bluray players.


I haven't found it streaming anywhere.
