  • Absolutely Dreadul!!!

    I absolutely love The Greatest American Hero, but The Greatest American Heroine....Terrible!!!!! Not only is what's her face that gets the suit (I think her name is kathy or something like that) soo annoying you can barely stand to watch her for more than a second, but Ralph is completely out of character. I could Never see Ralph acting like the complete donkey-butt he was in this, even if everyone did know he was a superhero, I couldn't see him going on television shows and bending spoons for pete's sake!!!! This is terrible do not watch it just make up your own conclusion for Ralph and the "maagic jammies" if you absolutely need one. Do not watch this!!!!!!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • If you can, check out the suit that Ralph is wearing when he is discovered by the media. It is much different from the original-- I think it's SILK! It actually glows, and looks really "smooth"! If this was the one he had been given that first night, I think that the show may have been called The Gaudiest American Hero!!!!!

  • QUOTES (0)

  • NOTES (4)

    • DVD note: Another interesting edit. I've seen a taped version of this episode and the woman who played Holly actually appeared to be missing some teeth missing in the back. But in the DVD episode, she appears to have all her teeth. Shades of James (Scotty) Doohan's partially missing finger in the original Star Trek series. Only that was glossed over during the original air's editing, not just for the DVD release.

    • As the episode title sparkles in (as in the series intro) letters "INE" in HEROINE chime in with the NBC chimes! The pilot had been produced for NBC.

    • Quite lame, bad idea and poor execution... EXCEPT for the scene where we get to see Ralph and Pam say goodbye to Bill, something we never were able to experience the first time around the way ABC treated the show. This pilot is worth watching for the goodbye scene alone. After that, you can turn it off.

    • Three years later, and boy what a difference. Bill's hair is white, and Ralph has wrinkles(not too bad, but evident that the years are gaining on him). Pam still looks great, though.
