I decided to *bump* this old post from a couple of years ago to here, as it is relevant and some of you may not have looked back that far.
Interesting no?


... In the original 1985 ABC broadcast that I have recorded, the pilot starts out with the regular credits as seen in the hour long episodes, minus any shots of Rachel Adams since she's not in the pilot. That area of the credits were replaced with more shots of the bike in action. What's so weird,is after that, the pilot starts just as it does on the pre-recorded video. We see the title Street Hawk and the picture fades up to show the city, and Starring Rex Smith etc! So the title, Smiths name and Ventures name we get to see twice!!

The other question: "The bike runs through a street and the "Street Hawk" logo appears." If your talking about the shot of the bike at night,popping a wheelie, and the shot is lit with alot of blue, and the silver Street Hawk logo appears. That's the "bumper" from the original broadcast episodes. At around the 30 minute point in the show, during the commercial breaks, this would appear with the voiceover: "Street Hawk will return in a moment." Then you get a couple of more minutes of commercials, a local station I.D. then local went back to network, they show the "bumper" again with just the music, no voiceover, it fades out, and the episode fades back in.

SCOTT. (not the evil one!)
Whilst we have you here (and I always look forward to your observations and tit-bits) do you have any plans to make the original recordings available, say on You Tube? Re-reading the above, it would be great to see the differences. Hell, it'd just be cool to see the original broadcast from the time...
Is it possible to do some clips?

Dan, you are making feel regret again. I had a recording of the original airing. The tape was over 20 years old, and I tossed it without even checking to see if it was okay. :P I also had the original airing of Second Self. Tossed it too. Go ahead and flog me.

A clip of the pilot movie in Spanish! Say it with me, "cinco, cuatro, tres, dos, uno ...'
