Who else remembers that very short-lived series (perhaps NBC?) from the early 70's; Priest?
It followed the wild adventures of maverick clergyman Julius Priest as he brought holy justice to Harlem.
Priest by Name... Ass-kicking Evangelist by nature!
Every week he'd get a new mission from his talking Bible (voiced by Casey Kasem). The best episodes had him up against a Satanist biker gang. And all to a heady soundtrack of gospel disco. A few episodes in he got a kung-fu kicking oriental nun as his sidekick. Then it all went weirdly metaphysical which did for the already lousy ratings and the show was pulled from the ratings.
It's never even shown up on video or DVD which fuels the rumours that pressure groups had the original tapes destroyed...

... or have I been eating too much cheese before bedtime again?


p.s. it was the latter!
