Repost:Old TV Shows that you should Watch:The Equalizer

Repost of a blog entry from September 2007.

Play the clip above to watch the intro of "The Equalizer"

Chances are if you grew up in the 80s, you probably saw or you heard about The Equalizer. This show involved a character by the name of Robert McCall. McCall was an ex-spy/intelligence operative that decided to provide his services to the public by placing an ad in the newspaper. I know it sounds funny but it is true. People would contact McCall and he would help them with whatever problems they had. To put it in simple terms, he was hired muscle that had contacts with the police and various agencies. The show featured Eddie Woodward as Robert McCall and Billy Zabka aka the blond butthole from The Karate Kid as McCall's son. The show aired from September of 1985 to August of 1989. It is hard to believe that the show aired for only four seasons. The show can currently be seen on Universal HD at the times below. If you have time check the show out!

Two years after this post was written, Eddie Woodward passed away in November of 2009 from pneumonia. He was 79 years old. According to IMDB, a film version of "The Equalizer" is currently being produced. The release of this movie is expected to be in 2011 or 2012. In the Spring of 2008, the first season of "The Equalizer" was released on DVD. According to various reviews, the DVD does not contain the original music. Not only is the original music missing, but some scenes have been edited out. Anyways, "The Equalizer" was an awesome show for the time, and will forever stay in my memory. Peace to You Mr.Woodward!
