Product Description

Lee Majors stars as the Fall Guy, Colt Seavers, a stunt man moonlighting as a bounty hunter who uses Hollywood stunt tactics to capture criminals.

The hero of The Fall Guy, Colt Seavers--played by Lee Majors, the former Six Million Dollar Man--is a Hollywood stunt man, which lets the show do all kinds of spectacular car crashes with no justification whatsoever, and he's a bounty hunter, which lets him get into all kinds of fist fights and ridiculous plots with no justification whatsoever. It's the perfect 1980s TV show, and it's no surprise it was created by Glen Larson, the mastermind behind such hits as Knight Rider, Battlestar Galactica, and Magnum, P.I. Assisted by his handsome but not-too-bright cousin Howie Munson (Douglas Barr) and sexy stuntwoman Jody Banks (blonde bombshell Heather Thomas), Colt grapples with a corrupt sheriff, a mob hit man, a government secret agent, a neo-Nazi biker gang (which, naturally, Colt had to infiltrate through cunning disguise), women wrestlers, and more, more, more. Preposterous? Absolutely! It's all an excuse to set things on fire and parade scantily clad young women around (Thomas had a popular bikini scene that led to a top-selling poster), while the Hollywood setting allowed for cameo appearances by stars ranging from James Coburn (In Like Flint) to Lou Ferrigno (appearing as himself playing the Incredible Hulk--it's downright postmodern) to Farrah Fawcett (Charlie's Angels), Majors' just-divorced ex-wife.

But what kept The Fall Guy running for five seasons wasn't silly plots or leaping cars. Lee Majors is one of those relaxed, genial actors who were made for television. Manly but gentle, handsome but down-to-earth, Majors appealed to men and women equally, could toss off a snappy one-liner without effort, and gave the impression that, no matter what happened, it would come out all right in the end. He even sang his own theme song. The Fall Guy: The Complete First Season is pure comfort television. (Season 1 is the only season with Jo Ann Pflug as Colt's boss, "Big Jack"; her adult sexiness and worldly wit were much-missed on later seasons.) The only extras are a couple of brief but entertaining featurettes, featuring interviews with Majors, Thomas, and Larson. --Bret Fetzer

This is one of my favorite Action/Adventure series. I love the Theme "The Unknown Stuntman" by David Somerville, Gail Jensen, and Glen Larson. The theme sung by Lee Majors.

The hallmark of this series was the spectacular stunt work. For Lee Majors the show was his fifth successful show. Majors played the role as Hollywood stuntman Colt Seavers, who by using his special skills to track down and capture bail jumpers picked up a little extra money. Helping out were Colt's inexperienced but eager younger cousin, Howie, and stunning stuntwoman Jody. The team took thier assignments from Samantha Jack, a sexy bail bondswoman named "Big Jack".

Each episode started with one of Colt's daredevil movie stunts(usually in high-speed)and then shifted to his pursuit of the bail jumper, often using the same stunts he had used in the movie.

The Fall Guy first aired on November 4th, 1981 until May 2nd, 1986 for a total of 5 seasons and 113 episodes, which I wish to own.

The First season was up there with the best 30 TV shows, ranking 26th in its first appearance and getting 19% of viewers according the Nielsen rating (The Nielsen rating is the percent of all TV-equipped homes tuned to the program on an average night, as measured by Nielsen Media Research).

The cast for this show were:

Colt Seavers..........................Lee Majors

Howie Munson........................Douglas Barr

Jody Banks........................Heather Thomas

Samantha"Big Jack"Jack(1981-1982)...Jo Ann Pflug

Terri Shannon/Michaels(1982-1985)....Markie Post

Pearl Sperling(1985-1986).............

Films featuring car chases and complex "stunts" have long been solid attractions at the box office. Notable examples are "Bullet" (1968) and the "french connection" (1971). But it wasn't until the late 70's that big budget, formula driven, Hollywood "stunt films" began to have massive box office appeal. "Smokey and the bandit" (1977) is probably the best known and most successful of the crop. "Bandit" director (and former stunt man) Hal Needham quickly followed his initial success with another Hollywood "stunt film" titled "Hooper" (1978) - A film that revolved around the life of a Hollywood stunt man.

TV producer, writer, and "Fall Guy" creator Glen Larson became quite famous for keeping a watchful eye on "big screen" successes and then, with a little ingenuity, creating small screen equivalents. "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" became "Alias Smith & Jones", "Star Wars" became "Battlestar Galactica", "Smokey and the Bandit" and "Every Which way But Loose" became "B.J and the Bear" and "The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo", and finally, "Hooper" (mixed with Steve McQueen's 1980 film "The Hunter") became "The Fall Guy".

The Fall Guy certainly wasn't the first series to use a "stunt driven" formula to attract viewers. "CHiPs" and "The Dukes of Hazzard" had already proven the formula by featuring stunt work in most of their episodes. But, before the "A-team" arrived, The "Fall Guy" featured the most outrageous and incredible stunt work on TV. In fact, when the A-Team finally DID arrive on TV (in 1983), an early advertising campaign was launched to make DIRECT claims that it was more action packed and had better "stunts" than "The Fall guy".

Beyond its ground breaking stunt work, the Fall Guy also featured a very likable cast.

Below is a review of this product: The Fall Guy: The Complete First Season DVD (it also applies to The Fall Guy: The Complete First Season, Vol. 1 DVD). Amazon may display this review on the page of another version of this product, for which this review may not apply. After reading this review, please click on the link so that you can be assured that the product this review applies to is the same one you thought it was for.

In the pilot movie, during the bar fight scene, you'll notice the band performing in the background is blurred out, and there's some strange editing going on. Fox was trying to hide the fact that they replaced and edited out Paul Williams singing the Patsy Cline hit "Crazy", and the acting scenes he had before and during the fight. Since all traces of Paul Williams were edited out, his name was removed from the guest star credits at the beginning of the movie, and the song credit for "Crazy" was edited out of the end credits.

There's no mention of music replacement on the back of the box, but in their review of the set, TVShowsOnDVD provided some information that may indicate lots more music replacements in the set:

Chris Cook dug up some information from NOMA Music and posted it to the Home Theater Forum. NOMA posted this on their website: "20th Century Fox home video release of "The Fall Guy" starring Lee Majors features eight new songs by Robert Allen, Octane Saints, Don Fisher and Matt King.
