  • Who remembers the TV show S.W.A.T.?

    I just saw a trailer for a new movie based on the old series. I guess it comes out in August and stars Samuel L Jackson (For the kids out there, "S.W.A.T." came out in the mid 70's and ran alongside "Emergency" for a couple of years).

    Should be worth my eight bucks to see how they remake it (or for a laugh if nothing else).

            I have heard of it, being 15, I am too young to have seen it. I had heard rumors that they were going to make a EMERGENCY! movie but that was like last year.

              All I hear now are wah-wah pedals and keyboards!!!! I am now going to hear the theme song all day long!

              Good thing I like the show and the theme song!!!

              If it's got Sam Jackson, I'm definately in. He's a bad mother---SHUT YO MOUTH! (Not as good as the original, but I love Samuel L Jackson!)

                Mark Shera....................(very very heavy sigh)

                I had such a crush on him as a teenager............as for the theme song, I used to twirl the baton to that one

                  I remember it. I watched it. Seems like the network's mad programmer cancelled all of my favorite shows. I will NEVER forgive them for cancelling Crime Story. NEVER!

                    I remember SWAT well, but I thought "Police Story" was the best, especially the episodes with "Dandy" Don Meridith.

                      I remember that show. I used to watch it as a kid. I also remember all the junky plastic SWAT toys they used to sell as well.

                          I had all the SWAT toys. You just can't find a good toy M-16 these days.

                            I just saw they are releasing a remake of this show in the theater. I hope they don't go crazy and remake all of these old shows, like Kojak or Starsky and Hutch. Though when I was a kid I wanted their cool red car with the white stripe.
