"The Fall Guy was one of eighties best all-around action series. Yes, there're so many other classic series. But, for pure entertainment value, I ranked The Fall Guy with The A-Team, two of the best eighties action series. Lee Majors really shines with stunt man Colt role. I'm a big fan of Six Million Dollar Man series, but I think The Fall Guy is Major's finest role ever. He had fun with this series, you can feel it. He enjoyed every second of it, and viewers, too.
Lee Majors sings title song for this series. The Fall Guy theme was one of my favorite eighties tv theme songs. It's catchy pop-country style song. And I remember saw Majors sings The Fall Guy song for Solid Gold. Yes, you remember Solid Gold. I remember, too. Fun show, lots of stars and those dancers! Hey, Lee Majors sings himself, what a great moment that was.
So, if you've seen this great show already, I think this dvd set is a great collection. If you haven't seen it, give it a try. This set is vol.1 of The Fall Guy season.1 There're vol.2 is also available. And, entire season.1 set also pre-order right now. Price is all the same, so choice is yours. And, I'm very happy The Fall Guy finally releasing dvd set. One of my favorite memories from the eighties coming back to me. I can't wait, thanks for reading."

"Colt Seavers (Lee Majors) is a professional stunt man. But like most people in the entertainment business, he finds that doesn't cover all of his bills. So he also works as a bounty hunter for bail bondswoman Samantha Jack (Jo Ann Pflug). Helping him out are his cousin Howie (Douglas Barr) and his protege Jody (Heather Thomas). And it's a good thing he can do stunts, too, because that ability comes in mighty handy when the crooks run.
This show is still lots of fun. It may be a TV show, but we get some pretty impressive stunts. There are lots of car chases, cars jumping things, helicopters... You name it, they do it. Okay, so this is a total guy show with all the action. But it is a fun guy show. And there are all the cameos, from Farrah Fawcett to Tom Selleck and Lou Ferrigno.
Fox did three releases for the first season, a complete season set, plus the season divided into two halves. This is the first half of the season. You get eleven episodes, including the double length pilot. In those episodes, Colt goes to Hawaii twice, gets caught up in international intrigue, hunts down a white collar criminal, and tangles with the mob in Vegas to name a few things. You also get a bonus featurette, interviews with creator Glen Larson and series stars Lee Majors and Heather Thomas about how the series came to be.
If you are on a tight budget this may be the way to go. But if you are a true fan of the show, look for the full season set."
