    Probably haven't seen this show anywhere since it aired on network TV. It's on SyFy today all day. I'm pretty sure the "hero" is the boyfriend from "Carrie."

    If nothing else, the show had a great theme song.

    The show which vaulted Michael Paré into stardom.

    I loved this show as a kid, but like most things doesn't hold up quite as well nearly 30 years later.

    You know, I almost turned it on today, but decided against it. I have such fond childhood memories of that show, and I was afraid they would be shattered if I were to watch it today. (But I will listen to Joey Scarbury on the way home from work tonight).

    Never once watched the show, though the theme song is burned into my brain. It was famously co-opted as George's answering machine greeting on Seinfeld:

    "Believe it or not, George isn't at home.
    Please leave a message at the beeeep.
    I must be out, or I'd pick up the phone.
    Wheeeere could I beeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
    Believe it or not, I'm not home."

    And yeah King, William Katt was the boyfriend in Carrie.

    I liked the show as a kid, and watched a small amount of the marathon. But I've got the theme song on my iPod, and I never get tired of listening to it.

    My mother-in-law has several seasons on DVD. She's a big Robert Culp fan. Seriously.

    As for me, Connie Selleca was lookin' mighty good!

    And it was a funny, entertaining show.
