Green light, kid: We did it!”
Voyagers! was quite possibly was my favorite show, at least from 1982-1983. I just heard today that it’s coming out on DVD on July 17th (next Tuesday). I’m very excited, I know this is probably gonna let me down on so many levels watching it, because there’s no way it will live up to my six year old self’s hype.
Strange story: I’ve always been one to forget the name of this show, although great memories of watching it. I was trying to explain the plot to my friend Brian while he started telling me about a show Cover Up which he liked as a kid, but couldn’t remember the name, but the reason he remembered the show was because his parents had made the point of telling him that the lead actor on the show had died playing with a prop gun on the set, he put it to his head and pulled the trigger joking around and the wadding from the blank cartridge shattered his skull and he died a week later, thus helping avoid children playing with guns. I looked the guy up on IMDb and found it was the same actor from Voyagers! (Jon-Erik Hexum) that I’d been trying to explain, creepy – very creepy.
