The title character was a hunky federal marshal, but the real star was a high-tech 18-wheeler equipped to catch bad guys. Inspired by a 1987 TV-movie and produced by Glen A. Larson of 'Knight Rider' fame. Think of this big crime-fighting rig as KITT on steroids.

Superstar producer Steven Spielberg was lured to TV with an iron-clad contract that guaranteed his series a two-season run whether it was successful or not. That series, Amazing Stories, ran from September 28, 1985, through May 15, 1987. Though the stories in this sci-fi-fantasy anthology ran hot and cold, all had the advantage of solid celebrity casts and an all-star lineup of directors, including Clint Eastwood, Martin Scorcese, Danny DeVito and, of course, Spielberg himself.
