Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.


Tv Season Info

This sci-fi actioner was driven by a futuristic, high-tech car that was used to run down criminals. Behind the wheel was an ex-hood turned cop---think `Robocop' paired with `Knight Rider' and fueled by excellent special effects. The series lasted less than a season, but two years later it got a touch-up and returned in syndication.

Critic Reviews for Viper: Season 1

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

Visually and vehicularly, the show is definitely cool. But the plots and characters land firmly on the hackneyed side of the street.

There's enough action, i.e., screeching tires and hardware gimmicks, to attract susceptible viewers with its win-by-hook-or-crook message. The graham cracker brigade and undiscriminating adults might well just buy into this one.

Viper is the virtual-reality hologram of the Lethal Weapon movies starring Danny Glover and Mel Gibson.

Even though the Viper's unspectacular special effects are basically upgraded James Bond or modified Batmobile, the car looks sturdier than the series.

Viper makes one yearn for the earnestness of David Hasselhoff.
