A television show starring Michael Dudikoff- sign me up! But, before that, a bit of history.
This series was made in the mid-1990s and was originally supposed to be called 'Viper.' However, Dodge through their car licensing behind another show, complicating the mess. That show got the name Viper (future entry if it ever gets a DVD release) and left this show in its wake. Of course, Cobra bombed and Viper managed to get 78 episodes.
He is recruited to work for an organization called COBRA, which helps those who cannot afford help. The place is run by the bald guy from Masters of the Universe (aka James Tokan), a man who dresses in nothing but bright suits and vests. Good thing those won't be dated in minutes! He also works with a young woman to work with who is the 'I'm really smart, but also approachable' type. Don't you just love cliches?
This show is nothing but action cliches, although it not is terrible. The fact that Dudikoff spends a whole episode wearing a white jacket and red shirt- that is terrible! Honestly, it is worth a look just for the sight of Dudikoff's mullet!
Next up, an icon of 1980s action cinema comes to the small screen. Unfortunately, it is Canadian! Stay tuned...
