We all have our favorite old-school TV shows that we love to rewatch as a guilty pleasure, and ABC’s action-drama series ‘The Fall Guy’ from the early ’80s is undoubtedly one of them. What was once the best of the best in TV writing and cinematography can now often seem corny and cheap, but with shows like ‘The Fall Guy,’ the cheese is exactly why we like revisiting them.
Rewatching our favorite shows from way-back-when fills us with a distinct sense of nostalgia – reminiscent of the good old days when TV was unapologetically light-hearted and didn’t take itself too seriously. Those days sadly seem to be gone now.
So you can just go ahead and keep your Game of Thrones, or your This Is Us. ‘The Fall Guy’ is for sure one of these TV series that aimed to provide pure action-packed entertainment. And now that we’re in 2019, it still does.
