The background art is kinda quick and dirty on this one, and I am downright ashamed at the cheesefactor of the logo. On the other hand, I think I am a smidge proud at how accurate the cheese factor is.

Yes, the inspiration for this strip is a little show called Street Hawk, which remains one of my favorite guilty pleasures of the 80s. Think Knight Rider on a motorcycle, with Frank Fontana from Murphy Brown giving periodic sass-back instead of a disembodied William Daniels.

It only ran for about 13 episodes, and had great music. Cheesy, stereotypical 80s vigilante hero with super high technology, but still pretty good.

Anyway, this is my roundabout way of bitching about the current crop of television while simultaneously attacking the most obvious hypothetical fall-back lineup.
