More Captain America

It's like The A-Team meets Roger Corman's Fantastic Four, with a dash of The Bionic Woman thrown in for good measure:



This is all courtesy of Popoholic. I have to admit that not only do I remember this, but I loved it. The '70s were a real golden era for superhero TV between this, Linda Carter's Wonder Woman, and the Bixby/Ferrigno Hulk.

That Flash TV show was awesome. Much closer to Max Headroom than Manimal on the spectrum of '80s action-TV greatness.

Interesting tidbit: Before making it big on Next Generation, Jonathan Frakes was a Captain America costumed performer at store openings and parties and whatnot.

The evil dog dosing henchmen of Christopher Lee is today Monk's shrink so he must have gone straight after facing Captain America.

Has anybody here ever seen the 1990 version, with Matt Salinger in the title role? If so, how was it?
