  • Focuses too much on Bill

    This episode's plotline is that "Ralph and Bill have to save mankind from a deadly virus that a fanatical ring wing military group hopes to unleash on a unsuspecting world". Unfortunately, the story itself was pretty weak, with no real sense of fear or urgency.

    I think the problem was that it focused way too much on Bill, with just a small amount of interaction with Pam. Getting to see Bill and Ralph's reaction to possibly having smallpox was amusing, with Pam telling them to suck it up. The military aspect was boring, and it seems like every episode must have been filmed outside of Palmdale!
  • One of the funniest episodes ever!!!!

    This is probably the funniest episode of The Greatest American Hero!! The faces Ralph makes when he is checking if his tounge swelled up are priceless. Him and Bill are hilarious throughout the entire episode. And Pam is in this one!!! She wasn't in many season two episodes because she was pregnant but she was in this one. oo and the part where bill is thrown out of the helicopter and Ralph saves him is really cool for the time period but now it is hilarious because you can see the parachute's and tell that those are not the real actors. Great episode I strongly recommend it!!!
