Has the new series been trash canned yet by ABC? Last news I can find is about a female cast as the new Ralph.

I really, really loved the show as a kid.

I just finished watching Season 3 and I'm almost finished watching Season 1 again and it's really, really bad. It's so bad it's almost unenjoyable. I keep screaming things at the tv.

2 gunman have Pam and are heading away 20 feet down the hall but instead of racing forward to save her at super speed knowing he's bullet proof and super strong, he turns, runs the other way to JUMP OUT A WINDOW and fly 5 miles wobbly to eventually catch up to them in a car allowing tons of additional property damage.

He can manipulate casino games with telekenesis, throw 200+ mph fastballs and get visions of where people are while dressed but every time there's a problem he runs away to change cloths slowly and still doesn't bother to wear pants he can take off easily after 40 or so episodes. Just go get them with the suit under your cloths.

Going back and watching this nonsense now makes me almost sad to see how bad things were done back then.

I can't imagine any way to remake this series and have it true to the pasts really bad look and plotting. If it's not then why not just make something new and better?

I'll be finishing Season 1 and forcing myself thru Season 2 later this week. I love the cast and really want to love the show. It's just so badly plotted. Season 2 is apparently where ABC tried to force them to be more of a childrens superhero show so maybe it want be as bad to sit thru again as 1 and 3.

Have you watched any current TV shows? I'm sure they can find someone who can produce a show with a really bad look and plotting! Devil

We could try filming it ourselves. I'll be Ralph, you be Bill.

Here's the scenario.

We're driving in the desert.

I left the suit in the trunk where there's no way to get ahold of it quickly.

I mention this to you.

You have one handgun and a badge.

You insist on trying to pull over 20 armed bikers in the middle of nowhere without backup.

Let's see what happens. Big Grin


Wait, I think they already filmed that one. Nailbiting
