Why make three televisions shows when you could make one for three times the price? From the developer of THE INCREDIBLE HULK, THE BIONIC WOMAN and V comes the incredibly ambitious CLIFFHANGERS!, a television series consisting of three wildly different, serialized stories called STOP SUSAN WILLIAMS (about a plucky reporter investigating a deadly conspiracy), THE SECRET EMPIRE (about a cowboy who discovers a secret society of aliens living underneath Wyoming) and THE CURSE OF DRACULA (about the curse of Dracula).
It's a really cool idea, but the question remains: was CLIFFHANGERS! canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold dive into each of the three crazy, action-packed, unexpectedly romantic mini-shows packed inside of CLIFFHANGERS! and figure out what works, what doesn't, and why such a cool-sounding tv series failed to find an audience in 1979. (Hint: It aired opposite HAPPY DAYS.)
