slow, by pure co-incidence with your recent post on LOOK-IN, I stumbled across this rare item:https://twitter.com/TheProfRog/status/615083513931542529?t=1&cn=cmVjb3NfbmV0d29ya19kaWdlc3RfdHJpZ2dlcmVk&sig=9ce195d6cbdcdfc18547be6462cc5f4817cf6d25&al=1&refsrc=email&iid=2179a4ef047e4b3d9f3061da644d3785&autoactions=1435503939&uid=468390293&nid=244+591
if ever there was a show that qualified for obscure, forgotten and cult tv, its WIZARDS AND WARRIORS....one of those shows that would pop up on the box back in the 80's, prompting the reaction " what the hell is this ? "Although my memories of watching it were hazy, I managed to get a few episodes recently on a bootleg dvd and it holds up very well. Its just a shame about Jeff Conaway's tragic demise.
Didn't it also star Duncan Regehr of (for a few weeks) V: THE SERIES fame?

Yes and he was very good as the villain dirk blackpool ( maybe he was from the seaside resort ? ) When asked about the show in a starlog interview, he replied:" ah now that one I miss but it never had enough time to make an impact ".Indeed it only lasted a mere 8 episodes. Regehr also made a memorable appearance as a ghost in season 7 of star trek the next generation.The 80's craze for fighting fantasy also came in for a lot of flak in the uk being denounced as the work of the devil and corrupting young minds.
