Anyone see Dr. Strange (TV, 1978)?

Apparently i heard it's pretty watchable, if so then Superman from 1978 is totally not the punk that was the first cause well, it came out in 1978 and the other one also came out here.

Spider-Man had them both beat by a year.

Based off of that freeze frame alone Nicholas Hammond is the best Peter Parker, over Lesbian Turtle and Justin Bieber Man.

I like it, it actually reminds one of Flash Gordon but a good version instead of the softcore 1980 movie.

Re: Anyone see Dr. Strange (TV, 1978)?

I was totally into watching The Flash back in the early 90's. But it felt like they only made ten episodes.

It always got preempted or moved to another time slot without notice. I used to watch this one too. Best friend and I would chatter over 2-way radios about it when it came one. If it came on.

Re: Anyone see Dr. Strange (TV, 1978)?

And yeah I saw this a few years back. Doc Strange always reminded me of John Holmes (as someone pointed out) mixed with Mike Brady.

Re: Anyone see Dr. Strange (TV, 1978)?

I saw DR. STRANGE on TV when it first aired. All I remember is that it had some location footage in New York City. That was the only thing that impressed me. You're better off with Steve Ditko's original comics.

Me too. I don't remember any details, but I know I did not like it. The Incredible Hulk was a big hit and Spiderman (Nicholas Hammond) was somewhat popular at the time, but I think they overreached with this one.

I've got this dvd set---a VERY well-done superhero tv show, IMO. I'm not that familiar with the Flash comics so maybe some purists would find things to complain about, but this series really captured that early 90s Burton/Batman/Dick Tracy movie vibe, with the sets and costumes, nice Danny Elfman score, and some great effects.

Re: Anyone see Dr. Strange (TV, 1978)?

Saw it on TV when it first came out, because I'm old. I still remember the ad in TV Guide. It was okay, in a 70's way, but Doctor Mordrid is still the best Dr. Strange movie around.

The most interesting thing about watching Dr. Strange today is the sight of Lucille Bluth as the evil sorceress. It would have been a better film if she had just stood there snarking with a cocktail in her hand.

I have seen it. The special effects were chessy but I did enjoyed it.
