The Immortal(1970)
7 June 2006 | by pearlpistolSee all my reviews

I was in my early teens when this show aired. First was the ABC-TV Movie Of The Week that started it all. I was in heaven! Having read James E. Gunn's book "The Immortals", I was intrigued with the story line. Television, as a whole, has problems with sci-fi, but for people like me who don't like the mindless idiocy of sit-combs, and the dull conversation of talk shows, programs like this are priceless. I would love to see an updated version, but would sadly miss Chris George as the lead character. I have searched the web for references to this show, and have really found very little. This site is important in the fact that it carries so much info on the show. I now have a complete listing of episodes, air dates, and cast and crew info. There have been several attempts to resurrect the series, but not enough episodes of the original were done to facilitate it being aired in syndication. What a shame...
