There are some great shots of the Mayan ruins, a good looking young James Woods, and a quirky trio of gals in a club band. You also realize that Karras should have stuck to football.

Good Weekday Watch...

"The fact that the show includes Rachel Ward should tell you to take a look. Regardless of her haircut, she was great; I prefer her with longer hair.
Some of the plot/storyline is a little disjointed and hard to follow. The premise is easy enough: bummed out hero needing work and shifty buddy to provide it. Of course, hero latches onto female who happens to have history with buddy. Obvious complications ensue and the fun, as well as some confusion begins. Jeff and Jim do well, and again, there's Rachel. There are nice cars and a very much-underrated car race - that was nicely done.
The scenery (not just Rachel) is great and indicative of the 80's mood.
It's a good, middle of the week watch. Or, if you're in for an 80's revival, do it. And if you don't "get" the 80's, do something else....
