    I can remember watching this as a small boy Monday nights on WBBM Channel 2-Chicago. It was followed immediately by Captain Nice, though on another network. It was campy, and was mainly for kids.This was before demographics became employed when scheduling programs, or it might have lasted longer. What a blast it would be to see it again, for the first time in 40 years, just for the sake of nostalgia.

    Great to see someone else on this site shares an affection for my favorite, "childhood" TV show.

    I must confess, I never watched Mr. Terrific for the comedy. It was the Stanley Beamish + power pill = Mr. Terrific gimmick that roped me in.

    In addition I thought the four main characters were great, and I loved the way they played off each other. And I still love watching them in the footage I've managed to collect.

    After 40 years, my memories of the show are vague, but I remember the power pill. I watched it because he was a superhero, albeit an offbeat one.
