Hot enough to burn through 30 years of Federal files, The Greatest American Hero episode “Fireman” originally aired this date (May 6) 1981. One of Ralph’s students, Tony, gets mixed up in an arson rap of a stereo store when he repossesses (legitimately) the car used in the crime. Worse? The Federal records depot building was torched in a similar fashion a few weeks earlier. It’s up to Bill, Ralph and Pam to clear Tony of any wrongdoing and find out who set the fires.
To completely …uh…smoke out the guilty party who torched the Federal records depot, Bill and Ralph bait Mr. Moody and Maxwell doesn’t mince words in his spiel. Moody then tries to give Maxwell the hot foot.
