The Pilot episode of the series. School teacher Ralph Hinkley meets FBI agent Bill Maxwell on a field trip to the desert, where they are met by a UFO that gives them a mission and a red costume with amazing powers. The new team must then use those powers to thwart a conspiracy.
Did You Know?
The symbol on Ralph's costume is symmetrical, avoiding the problem in the old "Adventures of Superman" series when the "S" symbol appeared reversed when the film was "flopped" to change Superman's direction of flight. Unfortunately, Ralph wore his wristwatch when he flew, so in many reused composite flying shots, the watch jumps from his left to right wrist. See more
During the pilot, Pam is wearing a pair of high heels. When she, Ralph, and Bill are captured, you can see that she has switched into a pair of sneakers. A few minutes later, when the three break out of their cell, she is back in a pair of heels. See more
Hey, guys, come on please, man. All I wanna do is go back to my car, huh? Look, I don't want any trouble.
Jesus loves you, my friend.
That's terrific news.
As originally broadcast, the pilot episode included the song "Rocket Man" on the soundtrack. For the 2005 DVD, due to licensing issues, the song has been replaced by a version of "Believe it or Not". See more
