Here's a clip.
"The Phoneix" circa 1982
This show description came straight up from Wikipedia:
The Phoenix is a 1982 television series starring Judson Scott which was on ABC for about one month. The plot revolved around an ancient extraterrestrial named Bennu of the Golden Light, who is discovered in a sarcophagus in Peru and awakened in the 20th Century. The series was first seen on a TV-movie on April 26, 1981
After viewing this, my friend and I got to talking about other TV shows we watched while growing up and we noticed a common theme emerging. It seems that we both grew up watching a lot of cheesy sci-fi.
Here are a few we got to talking about.
"Manimal" circa --1983
"The Powers of Matthew Star" circa 1982--1983
"Misfits of Science" circa 1985--1986
Now this last one is for my brother. I know he will laugh his butt off when he sees this.
"Land of the Lost" circa 1974--1976
