  1. The second instalment of the show turned me on to this woefully under-appreciated entry into the blaxploitation wave of films that proliferated throughout the seventies. Abar's super powers aren't anything like flying, jumping or turning into a jelly fish on command. After a freak science experiment gone wrong, Abar develops the power to heal his community from the ravages of racial repression.

  2. Another WTF film from the '70s---I gotta track this down, lol.
