CRITICS OF "The Greatest American Hero - Season 1"
GAH tweaks the superhero genre with an ironic wink but stops just shy of kitsch; there are actually genuine moments of dramatic tension along with the slapstick humor of Katt inevitably crash-landing into a wall, shrub, or Culp.
Spacemen give schoolteacher William Katt a suit that endows him with superhuman powers... Thereafter Katt, girlfriend Connie Sellecca and FBI agent buddy Robert Culp sputter as often as they soar in this late-season replacement series.
The Emmy-nominated two-hour pilot is a fantastic start to the series, focusing tightly on the relationships between the bickering characters and walking a very fine line between the absurd situation and a reasonably realistic world.
