The Greatest American Hero: My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys 

The Greatest American Hero: My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys

One of the most well written, acted and dramatic episodes of the show. This and 'Don't mess around with Jim' should be at the top of the list.

Ralph wants to ditch the suit after a near fatal accident is caused by his crime fighting. Meanwhile, Bill's best friend and mentor on the force has turned bad and wants Bill to back him up. Something which Maxwell just cannot do.

At the same time Bill's hero is turning sour, Ralph's hero is coming to town. The Lone Ranger played by original actor Hart. Ralph has already told Pam and Bill that he is giving up the suit but after speaking with his childhood idol, the real man not his character, Ralph realizes what it means to be a hero and why he cannot refuse.

Maxwell has to deal with his friend in his own way and the only choice is to go after him and stop him from theft and possible murder. A very poignant moment for this ultimately corny show. Definitely an A+ episode.

Believe it or not,
I'm walking on air.
I never thought I could feel so free-.
Flying away on a wing and a prayer. Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me.
