Plot Details/Summary

I only watched an episode or two of this one, so I can't recall a whole lot about it. The protagonist is a former astronaut of some sort, who makes it his mission to clean up the crime in his city. He might have been a police officer in his "new life" or he might have decided to become a sort of quasi-superhero. In either case, I distinctly recall his space suit being the gimmick that makes him an effective crime fighter in the show. I seem to recall the protagonist being a young, dark-haired man, and I think he had a friendship or an alliance with a young woman (maybe a fellow cop, or someone from the space program?). I don't think there were alien beings in the show. The criminal threats were all quite terrestrial, IIRC.

Timeframe and other Publication Details

This was a syndicated tv show I saw on American television, probably around the late 90s to early 2000's. I believe the show was filmed in Canada, though I'm not certain. I don't think it lasted very long - it was pretty dreadful. I can say for certain the show is not Space Cop or Gerry Anderson's Space Precinct.

    Sounds a bit like Green Lantern, except that was a film. – Darren Jul 4 at 8:53

    Reminds me of the 1970's TV series The Greatest American Hero, except the protagonist, Ralph Hinckley, was a blond high-school teacher. – Spencer Jul 4 at 16:53

Sounds like Super Force

Super Force is an American action-adventure TV series which aired from October 1990 to May 1992.

The series is about a former astronaut turned cop who uses a highly advanced combat armor and motorcycle to fight crime in the city of Metroplex during the future year 2020. Among the features of the black battle suit were enhanced strength and armament and a force field that protected the wearer from virtually all known weapons, whereas the motorcycle had an array of James Bond-type gadgets and weapons.

    Wow, wasn't this a surprisingly topical question: "during the future year 2020". 😄 – ZeroOne Jul 4 at 21:54
  • That's definitely the show I was trying to remember! – Helbent IV Jul 5 at 13:23
