Okay, so it's not Buck Rogers

In 1984, for some reason, tv networks got it into their heads that viewers would love to see shows about high-tech, heavily armed helicopters flown by either Roy Scheider James Farentino or Jan-Michael Vincent. Below is an amalgamation of their handiwork.

I don't know what bothers me more about the clips taken from "Blue Thunder"--the using of an office building as a way to get a heat-seeking missile off your tail, or the using of a barbecue stand to do it. The fact that Blue Thunder was a police copter only makes it worse, I think.
