80s TV Shows: Visiting Viking

Voyagers!
1982 - 1983


Click image to watch Voyager! opening
This was a one-season time travel series about a pirate from the past who travels around fixing "problems" throughout time with a boy he saved in 1982.  I don't believe I ever saw this one, but in this photo, the pirate guy looks exactly like my high school boyfriend (or at least how I remember him).  It's kinda freakin' me out, actually.  Moving on...

Trivia: 
The guy who looks like my boyfriend, Jon-Erik Hexum, was expected to be the next big thing in Hollywood, but he tragically died in 1984 as the result of an accident with a prop revolver on set of his new TV series, Cover Up.

  1. I remember this show. I also remember (vaguely) his death. He looks like my cousin Tony. Was your ex's name Dave? (Lol. Just had to.)

  2. Another show that sounds cool that I don't remember. The actor also look a little like Face in the old A-Team. He's quite cute. Sad that he died so young.

  3. I remember this show! I was so sad when they cancelled it. And yeah, I remember my mother telling me the actor had passed. He sure was cute!

  4. The boy also reminded me of someone from my childhood. Wonder if he'd be a household word featured on VH-1's 'Remember the '80s' had things gone differently ... Interesting that he's bringing to mind others for so many people.
