Another unsold pilot.
3 February 2005 | by Captain_CouthSee all my reviews

Hammer, Slammer & Slade (1990) was just another unsold pilot that just floated around syndication. I saw this around 1991 on an A.B.C. affiliate. I guess the only reason it got any air time was due to the success of In Living Color. Keenan Ivory Wayans tried to tone down the humor from his movie "I'm Gonna Get You Sucka" and make it into a television show. All of the key components from the movie were in the pilot. Slade, Hammer, Slammer and Kung Fu Joe are in it but Jack's part was played by another actor.

The pilot was just a rehash of the movie. We get to see Hammer and Slammer's Resteraunt, Kung Fu Joe's dojo and what not. Maybe it could have been successful if a major television station bought the show. Who knows if it could have worked?

Mildly recommended if you can find a copy to watch.
