    Reminds me of the Greatest American Hero, where he’s trying to learn to fly by jumping off the ground. A little kid walks up and says,’You’re not doing it right.’ and proceeds to give him directions.

    It requires something pretty distracting, though.

    I watched that show and I remember that, for a while, because of the attempted assassination of President Reagan by John Hinckley, ABC dubbed over the hero’s name Ralph Hinkley with “Hanley”, when anyone spoke it.

    I’m going to have to pull out season one now and watch that. That was the greatest thing about the show, he had absolutely no clue how to use his powers (thanks to loosing the instruction manual). He get’s this fantastic suit of alien origin that grants him all kinds of awesome powers and they loose the manual so he can only use the suit through trial and error. It was what you wanted to see with all superheroes back then, that they had to learn to be heroic. I mean come on, even if you weren’t into comics you still had Superfriends in it’s various formats, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends you had Superman and Superman II. How many times outside of comics were you likely to see anyone learning to be a hero and having absolutely no clue what they were doing?

    Man, I forgot the pilot was so long. There I was thinking it was an hour with commercials so the DVD oughta be jut 42 to 45 minutes, but it was actually over an hour and a half long. Still was great though. Especially the part where Ralph is watching Superfriends with his son and breaks the fourth wall. I wonder if that was scripted or if Katt found Superman’s line so hokey tat he was looking over at the director and crew only to have the camera get that great look.

    Love the little boy who taught him how to fly. Forget the part about “You’re not doing it right” the best part was when he tells Ralph his daddy is calling the cops on him and then goes on to tell him how you’re supposed to fly. I mean it’s so perfect. The kid’s an absolute innocent and he’s brutally honest with Ralph. What’s more he’s that age where he believes super powers are real so meeting Ralph is like a dream come true because it’s “here is a real superhero, but he totally sucks.” And yet he’s not disappointed at all when he sees Ralph making a fool of himself trying to fly. He’s excited, even more so when Ralph does finally take off doing almost exactly what he told him to do (he was holding his suit close to his chest so he didn’t throw both hands out in front of him like the kid told him to do).

    Ah, childhood memories Thank god for DVD collections and sites like Hulu.
