The Fall Guy

When I was just a wee little tyke, I would stay up late at night sometimes and watch old TV show reruns. I remember, one of my favorite of these old shows was called “The Fall Guy” and starred Lee majors. I remember when it would come on, I would build a little tent out of my pillows and blankets, and watch it in big eyed amazement.

Now, I am not sure how many of you are familiar with the show, but it’s about a hollywood stuntman, who is also a part-time bounty hunter, and he uses his hollywood skills in his night job. It was also in the 80’s and anyone who’s familiar with action shows of the 80’s know that they are chock full of explosions. Fall guy was no different!

Last night, I noticed that one of our local stations was airing old re-runs of The Fall Guy! I haven’t seen the show in years, and was anxious to see it again. So, I tuned in and began watching. Unfortunately, about 10 mins into the show, it dawned on me, that the show kinda sucks! It wasn’t as good as I remember. Perhaps my tastes have changed? I don’t know, but for whatever reason, it lost its magic.

You know what? On second thought, maybe it was just because I was missing my make shift tent!
