It's hard to think TV was ever like this...no special effects, weak stories, naff scripts, rubbish acting, terrible music...yes, Manimal hasn't dated well...

The lead man is like an British / American Magnum PI - complete with a Ferrari - and the ability to turn into an animal (but never a cool animal like a wombat or a lizard - although there is the possibility he turned into a shark in one episode).

But it was awesome to watch, and if you get a chance to, try watching at least a couple of episodes (they are all pretty much the same anyway).

And interestingly, it has a strong female lead character that is feminine, and not portrayed patronisingly (that feels a little progressive even today..).
