I'd forgotten all about this piece of televisual history. Were there really only eight episodes, it seemes like many more?

Didn't he always wear a white scarf for no apparent reason?

Reminds me of another classic too. I seem to remember this programme alternated with Automan, now there too was a great programme od its time. smiley - winkeye

Yes, it was about the same time as Automan and all that Knightrider, Streethawk, Airwolf telefantasy nonsense involving lots of near LA deserts.

Oh no!

The thing I liked best about Automan was they way his cool blue neon car turn corners at right angles, Automan could handle it but his human side kick always ended up with a comedy neck ache.

I was young OK
It seemed funny at the time

Oh no!

IS there anything else to remember about that programme?
I still think its funny, but then, I am very childish smiley - biggrin

He always had a glowy collar, even when he wore a suit, I remember that too.
I seem to remember he had a glowy light thing called Pixel or something that used to help him out also.

Oh no!

I think he was called 'cursor' and how odd that no-one noticed the blue-glo collar...

Seagull's Lost Horizon

I remember I used to like it, no one else I know remembers, only eight episodes, seems like a lot more, but then it probably did when I was a kid.
