Picks and Pans Review: Friday, January 6
ABC (9-10 p.m. ET)
It's not easy to play scenes with a high-tech machine. That's the task that faced Roy Scheider in Blue Thunder, the 1983 film about a futuristic police helicopter. In this series spin-off, seasoned with a touch of The A-Team, James Farentino plays a Vietnam veteran turned maverick special forces agent who uses the chopper to fight the forces of evil. His cohorts on the SWAT-style missions are played by former footballers Bubba Smith and Dick Butkus. (Premiere)
