Pic of the Day: “Fire Man” revisited

Our pic today is another from “Fire Man,” the episode of The Greatest American Hero that first aired on May 6, 1981. Crooked auto yard owner Cameron is laying down the law to our hero (William Katt).

Fire Man - 1981

This was the first of two episodes of this enjoyable superhero series in which Timothy appears. I must say I am digging his eyebrows here. Leave it to Tim to always try to make his characters stand out, in whatever way he could.

Video of the Week: “Fire Man”

This week’s video is an excerpt from “Fire Man,” the episode of The Greatest American Hero that was first broadcast on May 6,1981. Timothy is shady auto yard proprietor Cameron, who takes great pleasure in throwing our hero (William Katt) off his property.

Tim appears in part 3 as well, so don’t miss! Sorry about the Portuguese subtitles (I really want to learn that language someday). It’s worth noting that this episode was directed by Gabrielle Beaumont, the first female director in the Star Trek universe.

Sorry I missed  yesterday! I think posting will be going to almost every day for a while, as work on the book is starting to take up more of my time these days (woo-hoo!). But for today, we take another look at “Fire Man,” the episode of The Greatest American Hero that first aired on May 6, 1981. Shady auto yard operator Cameron and his sidekick are skeptical of the motives behind the appearance of a nosy Ralph Hanley (William Katt).

They are about to rather forcefully remove Hanley from the premises, but he will be back (wearing red tights). Timothy made another memorable appearance on Hero the following year in the episode “The Resurrection of Carlini” (11/19/82).
