Rediscovered #1: "The Highwayman"

A new podcast series is making its debut today on the Rediscover the 80s Podcast feed! The new show is titled "Rediscovered" (imagine that!) and will feature reviews of not-so-popular '80s TV shows, movies, and animation. Jason and Wyatt will be rewatching these obscurities either for the first time or reliving since their original run. We'll be trying to select shows and movies that are readily available on streaming services or YouTube so our listeners can also reconnect.

Our first episode covers the short-lived 1987-88 TV movie and series The Highwayman. It was created by Glen A. Larson of hit shows like Knight Rider and Battlestar Gallactica yet only managed to produce a TV movie and 9 episodes. We vaguely remember watching the show in its initial run yet the transforming vehicles have remained memorable over the years.



Thanks to the TVs_SledgeHammer channel on YouTube, we recently rewatched The Highwayman and are ready to give you our take on the new Rediscovered podcast. We'll give you some history of the show, actors who appeared, and a complete episode rundown. We also welcome your comments and memories on The Highwayman and hope you will link over and watch the series for yourself! And if you have any suggestions for TV shows, movies, or cartoons for us to feature on the podcast, we'd love to hear those as well.
