Just saw today that a movie remake of The Fall Guy is in the works with Ryan Gosling.

I don't know, I just can't see it working as a movie instead of a series. And, a pet peeve of mine, if a movie remake is successful it's rare that there is a sequel or TV version because the 'stars' of the remake can't make the same commitments as lesser known actors.
If you have Amazon Prime, Fall Guy seasons 1 & 2 are now available for streaming.

I started watching the first few episodes of S1 and I couldn't remember if I had ever seen the pilot episode before. With those types of shows, like Fall Guy and The A-Team, there was always a lot of implied violence and, even with bullets flying everywhere, nobody actually died. It was for that reason that the pilot was surprising as a violent death is a big of the storyline.

With the pilot I was also surprised to see a cameo by Farrah Fawcett. Taken into account this was in 1981 and, the relationship between Lee Major and Fawcett, this show was 'meta' way before meta was cool. :LOL:
