This critically acclaimed series, which is a perfect blend of superhero action and sharp-witted comedy, centers on a normal high school teacher with a super-powered pajama suit he doesn’t know how to operate! With the help of his friends and through some trial and error, his mission is to travel around the world to fight crime and save the day!
Created by legendary writer/producer Stephen J. Cannell, this complete second season collection includes all 22 acclaimed episodes from this multi-Emmy-nominated series which co-stars Michael Pare and Faye Grant. STARRING: WILLIAM KATT, CONNIE SELLECCA, ROBERT CULP, MICHAEL PARE, FAYE GRANT, and many more!
The adventure continues as reluctant crime fighter, Ralph Hinkley (William Katt), seeks out calamities and injustices in this high-flying sci-fi/action/comedy series. With the aid of his power suit, Ralph is equipped with variety of unearthly powers including super strength, resistance to injury, invisibility, telekinesis, and x-ray vision. However, Ralph's crime-fighting skills are only as good as his ability to control the super human abilities granted by the alien-gifted supernatural cape.
Helping Ralph in the fight against crime are his beautiful girlfriend Pam (Connie Sellecca) and the overly enthusiastic FBI agent, Bill Maxwell (Robert Culp), whose outrageous plans usually mean trouble. This 4 DVD collection includes all 22 season two episodes and features such guest stars as Markie Post, Joe Mantegna, Barbara Hale, Keenan Wynn, Dixie Carter, Don Drysdale and more!
