Did any of you watch this Stephen J. Cannell action thriller series back in the day? Strangely enough, ITV showed only the pilot episode back in 1987, but not the series ???.

It was a milder version of The Equalizer with Nick Mancuso (Under Siege, Rapid Fire) playing an ex-secret agent who helped people in need, but the catch was that they would have to do something for him in return, which would sometimes be dangerous.

Thanks for the link. I've added that helicopter/car chase from the pilot (available on youtube) as a favourite.

Holy cow, another Stingray fan! And I thought only Ducati was crazy enough to like that show ;)

I've seen little bits of the show here and there when Ducati introduced me to it, but I've been meaning to watch all the episodes sometime later.

Stingray is actually available on DVD, but only in Canada. I've seen the DVD cover. It's got Nick Mancuso on it, wearing shades, in front of his Corvette. Looks snazzy.

This is one of my favourite TV action scenes ever : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-S2LxiQ3y8
