Blue Thunder vs. Dallas on Friday nights,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Blue Thunder : The Complete Series (DVD)
Many people believe the ABC tv series, "Blue Thunder" was mainly cancelled because of CBS' "Airwolf". Airwolf had NOTHING to do with Blue Thunder being cancelled! ABC debuted Blue Thunder on Friday nights directly against CBS' top rated show, "Dallas". Dallas was at it's peak during this time and buried anything ABC or NBC put up against it. Unfortunately, whoever was in charge at ABC didn't bother placing Blue Thunder on another night, so it never really stood a chance. Although I was a fan of Dallas, I would videotape Blue Thunder so I could enjoy both. I am glad someone was smart enough to bring Blue Thunder to DVD, even though it only lasted 11 episodes. I highly recommend this show to anyone considering buying it. You can see for yourself what a good show it was and wonder like I do what might have been had ABC been smart enough to even give an attempt of saving it.
