Wow. A blast from the past. I do not remember a single episode of automan when I last saw it maybe at 2nd to 3rd grade which would make me around 9 years old but I remember the odd glowing ball and sharp lines that materialize into a car. It's been on my mind rarely when trying to go back into my past on what I actually spent watching on tv. Once again it just illuminates why no child should watch tv because it serves no real purpose.
