Anyone else remember the TV classic that is Sledge Hammer!
? It was a staple of my Friday night viewing back in my junior high school days during the mid to late 80s. The first season hits DVD
today including the never aired pilot and the infamous season finale where Sledge manages to blow up the entire city with a nuclear device and the words "To Be Continued" flashed on screen. Basically, the show was left for dead, so the creators made an episode as a cliffhanger that could have no possible resolution. Then ABC airs the show on a Thursday night up against a repeat of Cosby or something like that and it scores pretty good ratings. ABC then orders the second season and the creators are stuck--how the hell do we resolve this?!?
I remember waiting all summer to find out...that the second season of Sledge Hammer
took place three or four years before the first one.
