    The Fall Guy is a classic TV show of the 80s. Every week, I use to watch it with my Dad. Now, watching it, you see all of the references to the classic 80s shows like Magnum PI, Heather Locklear, and other stars back then. They is always a hint of sexual tension but it is done in good taste and makes it enjoyable for everyone. They use their tricks of being a stuntman and show some incredible scenes. You have to remember it was the 80s so some of the special effects are not up to par with today's standards. Overall, a good watch for the entire family but a little dated.moreless
  • Lee Majors plays Colt Seavers in this cult classic show from the great 1980s.

    The Fall Guy was a great show. An original show (a rarity) about a guy working as a stuntman who also moonlights as a bounty hunter. Lee Majors was already an established and credible movie star and tv star that could carry any project in his lap. Majors does a fine job of acting and unlike most actors today did his own stunts for the show. He plays Colt Seavers the aforementioned Unknown Stuntman. Majors dedication and commitment are evident through his own stunts and his singing of the theme song.



    This show is not dated at all. Since this show is in part an ode to all the stuntmen who have lived and died performing amazing stunts for movies who never get credit at all in Hollywood, it fits that this show has many jaw dropping stunts. People who don't really appreciate that don't know anything. Before CGI came along, men and women had to perform super heroic acts of suspense performing one stunt after another. A couple of the stunts in the show are conventional (like a car jumping of a ramp) but others are not (a motorcycle performing stunts on a bridge, a car jumping a major intersection). It's no wonder that this show became so highly popular in the 80s and still has a big following among fans.



    To add to Majors, we have sex symbol Heather Thomas co-starring as Colt Seaver's assistant, Joe, and we have Douglas Barry playing Colt's manager Howie.



    This was a show that incorporated a lot of genres, and storylines into one action packed hour. It's never dull, always interesting, and always entertaining. This was co-created by Glen A. Larson who is up there as one of the great TV creators of all time, so you know this series was gonna be big and it was.moreless
  • The adventures of a stunt man who doubles as a bounty hunter.

    8.8
    Although often overlooked in favor of other 80s high-octane action shows such as "Knight Rider" or "Dukes of Hazzard", this show is quite capable of holding its own. Lee Majors makes a terrific leading man, and the show is very well written, with an excellent mix of action, comedy, and of course, romance. The show, like its other contemptoraries, can become quite predictable after a while, as many of the episodes follow the same basic format. But the theme song rocks all of the competition. "The Unknown Stuntman" could probably be considered one of the most lasting aspects of a great, underrated 80s hit.moreless
