The Greatest American Hero: Don’t Mess Around with Jim is episode 3 of season 2 for this series that stars William Katt as Ralph Hinkley, Robert Culp as Bill Maxwell, and Connie Sellecca as Pam Davidson.
However, Sellecca is barely seen in the 2nd season, apparently due to pregnancy. She’s really missed. In fact, it wasn’t until watching these shows again and seeing the completeness of the 1st and 3rd years that I realize how vital the Pam character was. That’s a tribute to Selleca.
The thrill of this hour is the surprise that it holds for Ralph and Bill after they are taken by some bad dudes. The person responsible for their abduction knows more than our heroes anticipate. I really love this part of the story, and I don’t want to spoil it, which is why I’m not going to say much more about it.
It makes sense, though, but in how it deals with human nature and all that has happened to Ralph and Bill in the course of the show.
What I do miss in these second season shows is the absence of Ralph’s son, who has just disappeared. It’s a sad turn of events, considering all Ralph went through to get custody of him in season 1.
