|Title card, yanked from a fansite.|
I wasn't familiar with Longstreet until fairly recently- it's not on dvd and doesn't show up in reruns that often.
James Franciscus plays Mike Longstreet, a blind insurance investigator. He lost his eyesight when a bomb exploded, killing his wife as well.
He spends the pilot learning to deal with his blindness and figuring out who was behind the bomb.
It actually works well as a comic book style origin story- his training involves not just blind navigation and echo locution, but a workout montage as well. He gets a radar cane and a sidekick- Pax, a white German shepherd.
I'm going to follow up with episodes later because he even gets a mentor- a self defense instructor played by Bruce Lee!
