Sci-fi televison show which aired a scant eight (hour long) episodes on NBC from Sept.1983 to Dec. 1983. The absolutely ridiculous plot centered around a character named Johnathan Chase, an English college professor at NYU who had the impressive yet bizarre ability to transform himself into any kind of animal (think Wonder Twins). Of course he used these powers to battle all manner of crime in seedy pre-Black Monday New York City.I've heard The Sci-Fi Channel has aired reruns in recent years.
