Bonanza Meets The Towering Inferno
31 January 2005 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

About a group of firefighters.

Bonanza meets The Towering Inferno in Irwin Allen's last ever TV series.

Irwin Allen loved the look of FIRE on film. Just look at The Towering Inferno action scenes (which Allen directed) and his love of fire is obvious. I think Allen once said that "fire is beautiful"? And yes, it is when Allen films it.

Code Red is Bonanza meets The Towering Inferno but made without the gusto, showmanship and fun of past Irwin Allen Productions.

In fact, I remember reading an article suggesting that Irwin was less involved with this show than one would expect.

This series really only features two Irwin trademarks, fires and a Will Robinson type kid - Adam Rich as Danny Blake - who orders around adults all day. Bill Mumy in Lost In Space could get away with being a painful kid but Adam Rich is a really serious pain.

I would not call this series bad but I would not call it good...somewhere in the middle...however the mighty opening theme tune gets ten out of ten!
