I love this show and one of the fan sites is back online.

There are a lot of cars seen in this series missing. For example, there's a dark grey 1983-87 LTD Crown Victoria (or Grand Marquis) which was crushed in scrap yard with a man captured by bad guys, or a light grey Jeep Cherokee which rolled over several times during a chase with the Viper. And they've blew up a Beetle in an episode because they shot on the gas receiver.

Oh! And there's a Charger, Road Runner, GTX or Coronet seen in an episode which deals with street racing, and at the end, one of those muscle cars flipped over and explodes!

I used to watch this show and wish that they would release it on dvd, It has a nice selection of Chrysler pre-pros, Concepts and mules but I have a question as to how it should be listed on this site.

The Pilot was a "made for TV" movie with an imdb number of 0324452

The 1994 Season has a separate imdb number: 0108983

and the 96-99 Seasons (Syndicated Revival of the 1994 season) have a different imdb number: 0115413

I think the one match for all of them is the best option. On IMDb 1994 series has for example season 1, 2 and 4. On FilmWeb 1994 season has photos from later series. IMO 3 matches is at least a one to many.

PS.
In USA this show also is not available on DVD? I thought that is only eastern Europe problem.

Yes I agree that they should all be listed together I just wasn't sure which imdb number should be used. As far as the DVD this show has not been released on DVD anywhere

If we think of "Viper" as a one big whole, then made for TV pilot would be the first episode of 1994 series and its 1996 reincarnation would be the next season of this. I think 0108983 is the best option (but I'm here new and I don't know much about how this site works).

I remember watching this show during it's first run on TV. The number of prototypes and show cars fascinated me. It was an excelent way to enhance the "near-future" setting.
A question though. Should the regular appearance of the main vehicle (as a standard Viper RT/10) be included as a separate vehilce? I think this would make sense seeing as they used two different vehicles to portray the two different forms of the "Viper/Defender". Also, I think it would be worth posting the off-road version of the Defender (the one said to be built on a Dodge Dakota 4x4) as a separate vehicle also. Yes it is supposed to be the same "Defender" vehicle. But it was clearly a separate vehicle used in the production. I don't mean that every duplicate car used to portray the "Defender" should be given an entry of its own... just the radically different vehicles such as the stock Viper RT/10, and the off road version.

I agree mycroft as well as the Viper GTS used in the later seasons. I am hoping that khaosth will upload these images

I agree also - seperate Viper from defender. I don't really see need to seperate defender in off-road mode from defender, but civilian Viper is for me something different than Defender.

Defender, Viper, Barracuda, Epic and Joe's bike pictures I will add at the end. I won't add GTS pictures for a time, because I have found only first series. I will looking for next three seasons but I don't know when - not in this month unfortunately.

And I'm sorry for making so many unknown - I'm trying to find names of them but I don't even know where to look for infos.

I would still list the Defender in 4x4 mode as it is not a Viper, but a Dodge Dakota, but it is up to you as your the one uploading the pictures ;)


as far as the unknowns, your not doing that bad and most of the ones I have been able to identify as I validate them

My yellow 1969 Dodge Coronet 500 was in that episode! All of the extras at the drag race scene were the owners of the cars they used. I think it was somehow cheaper to hire the owners as extras and get them to bring their cars then to just rent the cars. It was filmed at an old airstrip, we had a ton of fun doing burnouts all morning long, just to lay down some rubber and make it look like a drag strip! They really bagged on that Viper that day!

The yellow '66 GTO blows up at the end of the scene. They had an old '66 Lemans stripped out to stand in for the actual explosion. It was pretty scary as the car didn't roll quite where they had planned for it to go! Obviously, they only had one take to get that shot! I also remember how hard it was to put the fire out. The vinyl dash caught, and was next to impossible to put out. It was just like a tire fire I guess, but it really made me think about the safety of those old cars.

I used to have a VHS recording of this episode, but somewhere over the years it was lost, it would be nice if it was released on DVD.

You now can buy all 4 seasons on DVD at least in Germany.

btw, can an admin change running time? It was running from 1994 to 1999.

EDIT: I've bought season 2 DVD today (they didnt had season 1 :(), so expect high quality pictures in the near future. Maybe Tomorrow.

Helicopters have fake US aircraft designations. Even the Canadian designation is wrong, because C-GLDL is a Cessna and C-FSQY is a DeHavilland.

@Purzel89 > you should rather use imcdb's own image hosting for posting additional images in comments: click the link "store pictures" above the comment area.
As sometimes free hosting services lose pictures (e.g. from CougarTim's comment here above).

Added and waiting for approval. Thats Episode 2.11.

Some information i like to share:

Walker Brandt plays the main role of Gwen Reardon in Ep. 2.14. In the same year she also played the wife of Pierce Brosnan in Dantes Peak but she dies in the very beginning of the movie.

Heather Medway, who plays main female character Cameron Westlake, is the wife of Danny Bilson. Danny Bilson is one of two creators of "Viper"
