The Greatest American Hero (1981–1983)

The Greatest American Hero was an American comedy-drama television series that aired on ABC. The series features teacher Ralph Hinkley (changed to Hadley, after John Hinckley Jr. shot President Ronald Reagan in 1981) and chronicles his adventures after a group of aliens gives him a red suit that grants him superhuman abilities. Unfortunately for Ralph, he immediately loses its instruction booklet, and thus has to learn how to use its powers by trial and error, often with comical results. Stars: William Katt, Connie Sellecca and Robert Culp. The entire series is here.
