This is my tribute to the 1980s badass character, Robert McCall, better known as "THE EQUALIZER".

When I did my Atari 7800 commercial, I had a lot of people asking me where the song I used came from. The tune was the theme to THE EQUALIZER, an action series on CBS during the latter half of the 1980s. The tune was penned by Stewart Copeland, the drummer for THE POLICE.

The Equalizer was interesting in that it featured a lead character in his mid-fifties.

Robert McCall was a retired secret agent who wanted to correct his past sins by helping people in trouble. If you happened to be a villain causing trouble for someone that McCall was protecting, watch out. He may have been over fifty, but that didn't stop him from being one of the toughest characters on television.

The lead role was played by Edward Woodward, who was fantastic in making you believe that this "old guy" could easily and efficiently dispatch of opponents who crossed his path.

This is a little montage I put together of great "Robert McCall" clips.
