Anybody remember the late 70's show "Cliff Hangers"?

I have only vague memories of this show from childhood - one part was a vampire story, one part a murder mystery, and one a sci-fi western. I thought it was pretty cool at the time, but I guess the premise failed miserably. Each week the three series had about a 15 minute segment, each of which ended with a cliff-hanger. I have read that the producers royally screwed up because they satrted each series half-way through the story, and only the dracula story actually ended.

Anyone have any info on the show - websites, etc.? Thanks.

Sounds like it was an interesting idea.

I remember it. It was a good idea, albeit poorly executed. I would love to see it revisited with decent scripts and acting this time around.

This is weird... today, looking at the release for the S.W.A.T. season one DVD, I had a flashback of this show "Cliffhanger". Now here's a thread for it I take it a DVD release is out of the question?

It would be nice to see some of this show available either on DVD or at least on line or something. I remember parts of it were rather cheesy, but in a good "Dr. Who" sort of way.

Thanks for the other links. Anyone know of a site with still-pics from the show?
