    Nippon Television Network Corporation (ended 1998)
    In this world, is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcendental entity or law? Is it like the hand of God hovering above? At least it is true, that man has no control, even over his own will. These spoken words at the beginning of each episode refer to the primary theme of Berserk: Every human is controlled by fate. We are introduced to the main character, Guts(The Black Swordsman), in the first episode. He is a tall man who is indelibly marked with the Brand on his neck. This horrible symbol draws all of demonkind to him. Guts wields a huge sword, throwing knives, an arm cannon, and a repeating crossbow. If one were to look at him, they could tell he's been through a lot. Guts has a prosthetic left arm and is also missing his right eye; in addition to the countless scars on his body. What has happened to this man? Placed in a medieval setting, Berserk tells the story of a younger Guts and the charismatic Griffith. A 100 year war rages between the kingdom of Midland and the empire of Chuder. Among the many armies, there is one group which shines above the rest: The Band of the Hawk. This elite mercenary group on the side of Midland is known as "death on the battlefield." Griffith, the leader of this group, is pursuing his dream and nothing will come in his way, especially with Guts at his side. As soon as they meet, the wheels of fate are set in motion and nothing will ever be the same. This anime is an adaptation of the ongoing manga masterpiece created by Kentarou Miura.moreless

    "Who ya gonna call?" New York City has enjoyed a lengthy respite from the supernatural for some time now. The Real Ghostbusters – Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddemore – did their jobs very well, but have long since gone on to lead more normal lives. Unfortunately, there are always ghosts out there, and they are coming back in full force. Without the Ghostbusters, New York City is defenseless against these menaces. As the sole one still around, Egon knows that he has to do something. However, even with old friend Janine Melnitz and ghostly sidekick Slimer around, he needs a lot more help. Enter a younger team compromised of Eduardo Rivera, Kylie Griffin, Garrett Miller and Roland Jackson. Guided by Egon and boasting more advanced ghostbusting equipment, the Extreme Ghostbusters face off against nastier and meaner ghosts. The Real Ghostbusters had been over for years, but interest in the franchise in general has always remained. Finally, after six years, Extreme Ghostbusters hit the airwaves. Boasting some of the people involved with RGB, EGB turned out some fan favorites (including the "Back in the Saddle" two-parter, which brought back Peter, Ray and Winston). Though not nearly as successful as its predecessor, this second spin-off was far more faithful to RGB than the short-lived Slimer! spin-off from years earlier.moreless

    Spawn is the story of Al Simmons, an African-American employee of the U.S. government who is killed in the line of duty while working as a CIA assassin. Being completely devoted to his wife Wanda, Al sells his soul to the devil - Malebolgia - in exchange for a second chance on earth. But Malebolgia has sent him five years into the future, with no memories, and in the unrecognizable form of a "hell spawn" with superhuman powers. In his effort to make sense of his new existence, Spawn must also use these powers to serve those who allowed him to return –a duty he is not entirely convinced he wants to fulfill.

    He was once a man...now he's a "hell-spawn," battling the forces of evil on Earth -- and in himself. Using his strange powers, he fights to uncover the truth about his identity and fulfill his destiny. One of the comic book industry's most popular and intriguing characters, Spawn explodes on the screen in a maelstrom of fantastic imagery with action, romance, and high-level espionage.moreless

    Exosquad

    USA (ended 1995)
    ExoSquad is set in the early 22nd century, and by that time humanity has made two major advancements. They have developed terraforming methods, which has made it possible for humans to inhabit not only Earth, but Venus and Mars as well. The second major achievement was in the field of genetic engineering, which enabled the creation of a new race, called Neo sapiens. This new race, since it was to be used as slave labor in the mines on Mars, was created to be physically superior to Homo sapiens (referred to as Terrans). A Neo sapien is stronger, larger, and can survive in harsher conditions that his human counterpart. A Neo sapien requires less food and no sleep. One feature denied to the Neo sapien race was the ability to procreate, thus the only way for a new Neo sapien to be created is in a brood chamber. Despite this shortcoming, some Neo sapiens resemble males, while others tend to be considered female. Mentally and psychologically Neo sapiens are similar to Terrans, for they are not any more intelligent and they do experience emotions (although they often seem tempered or dulled).

    Neo sapiens had been created decades before ExoSquad epic begins. Fifty years beforehand the Neo sapiens rebelled against their masters, in an attempt to win their own freedom. A new Terran invention, the e-frame, was instrumental in the suppression of the revolt. The exo-frame is a machine that the user climbs into an operates in part by a cybernetic link. The e-frame becomes a larger, stronger extension of the human body (normally 8'-12' tall with two arms and two legs). When equipped with weaponry, such as missiles or machine guns, it becomes a potent weapon. In battle it can act similar to a tank, in that it is heavily armored and carries more firepower than an infantry soldier. Because e-frames have flight capability they are effective in providing air support for ground troops. They are also used in a manner similar to fighters when two opposing space fleets engage each other. An exosquad is, as the name suggests, a squadron of these exo-frames. The Neo sapiens did not have this technology during their first rebellion, and it led to their downfall. Apparently the revolt was not restricted to only Mars, although that is where the uprising was centered. The rebellion was organized by a Neo sapien named Marsala, who later joins the ExoFleet and is a member during the second rebellion. This first Neo sapien revolt was finally supressed by his capture, after his whereabouts were revealed when his captured (by Winfield?) brood brother Phaeton was threatened with death.

    Although Neo sapiens were granted some rights, as well as control of the planet Mars, they were by no means equal, de jure or de facto, to their Terran counterparts. Many Terrans continued to harbor prejudice against the Neo sapiens, while others did consider Neo sapiens as equals. The First Neo sapien Rebellion actually did little to change the status of Neo sapiens, and many of them hoped to eventually achieve equality.

    The Neo sapiens were not the only disenfranchised people in the solar system. The Pirates are descendants of Earth criminals that were sentenced to hard labor, and were sent to mining operations on the moons of the outer planets. With the creation of Neo sapiens, whose physical abilities made them better slaves, the pirate ancestors were abandoned on those moons. They survived, however, and were able to build spaceships of their own, so that they could attack other (mostly Earth) ships and steal whatever they needed or wanted. Many of them developed a sense of hatred for the Terrans (who lived in luxury) and the ExoFleet (whose sole purpose seemed to be to hunt them), and often the feeling was mutual.

    Phaeton, who had ascended to Governor of the Martian Commonwealth, seized the opportunity afforded him by the renewed Pirate threat. Phaeton had been secretly diverting funds from the Martian treasury to the production of military hardware, building guns, ships, and e-frames. Since the Terrans had not given rights to the Neo sapiens, Phaeton was determined to take those rights by force. He supported, though it probably would have occurred regardless of his support, the assembly of a large task force which had the express purpose of going to the outer planets and eliminating the Pirate threat. Most of the ExoFleet's ships and e-frames were dedicated to this effort. The fleet consisted of several ExoCarriers plus support ships, with Admiral Winfield (whose flag was on the Resolute) in command. Once the ExoFleet had reached their destination and had begun engaging the Pirates, Phaeton and his forces struck.

    The Neo sapiens quickly and easily conquered the worlds inhabited by the Terrans. General Shiva spearheaded the successful assault of Earth. General Draconis was in command of the force that subdued the relatively sparsely populated Venus. The remnants of the ExoFleet that had not been assigned to the assault on the Pirate moons were quickly overcome and were only barely able to contact the task force before they were permanently silenced.

    The task force had successfully reached its first target, and had forced a Pirate withdrawal from the moon Enceladus with relatively minor losses. A temporary crippling loss occurred when Admiral Winfield was knocked unconscious in the course of the battle. Captain Matthew Marcus assumed command of the fleet and ordered the pursuit of the Pirates to their base on Tethys. It was while preparing to attack that they received word of the Neo sapien assault. Captain Marcus froze, and Lt. J.T. Marsh called off the attack. The fleet turned and began the long trip back to Earth, and Marcus was determined to strike at the newly formed Neo sapien Commonwealth. His plan was to attack as quickly as possible, partly because he was angered by the surprise uprising, and partly because the Neo sapiens had not had time to completely consolidate their gains. Marsh objected, and attempted to override the order, on the grounds that the support ships could not keep up with the ExoCarriers, and that attacking without the entire fleet would be suicidal. Marcus had Marsh thrown in the brig and charged with mutiny, and Marsh was sentenced to die.

    The Neo sapiens had both their Earth and Martian fleets converge and intercept the approaching ExoCarriers. It was during the battle that Admiral Winfield awoke, and when he did he immediately ordered a withdrawal. Marsh had escaped from his guards with the help of his fellow members of Able Squad when the attack came, and, with Adm. Winfield's permission, took command of four e-frame squads. By directly attacking the Neo sapien flagship he forced the Neo sapiens to redirect their assault, away from the ExoCarriers, giving them the time they needed to escape. Marsh and his fellow Able Squad pilots were all sentenced to spend a year in the brig for the escape, but it was a year during which no battles were fought, since Winfield used the time to repair and rebuild the fleet.

    At that point the pace of the war increased, and the Pirates were soon drawn into the conflict. The television show ExoSquad chronicled this future conflict, focusing primarily on the heroic efforts of Able Squad, the e-frame group commanded by Lt. Marsh.moreless

Together, they prove more than worthy opponents for the Mandarin's own army of henchmen. Iron Man first aired alongside the Fantastic Four as part of the Marvel Action Hour block. While it's first season consisted of very basic "good vs evil" adventures, it was given a complete overhaul for it's second season, becoming darker in direction, with season-spanning story arcs and tighter animation.

    A renowned scientist, Bruce Banner, develops radical breakthroughs, mainly for use in military - weaponry, through the use of gamma radiation [rays]. Although when the powerful gamma bomb he creates is seconds away from being tested, all goes wrong. When a young teenager, Rick Jones, suddenly drives across the secure testing range on a mere dare! The imminent explosion is bound to wipe out everything in its radius. Bruce Banner along with General Ross sit in the specially shielded bomb shelter and await the results. It's only then when Dr. Banner sees the reckless teenager drive across the field [and hits a rocky bump hurling him out of the jeep and onto the ground] and is forced to sacrifice everything when he attempts to save him. Leaving the shelter, but miraculously getting to the boy in time and shoving him into a ditch to save his life! Yet, there is no time for Bruce to find cover and he is bombarded by gamma rays!

    What ordinarily would've killed any normal man [for that matter, incinerated/vaporized his body], Dr. Banner instead undergoes a hideous mutation of unimaginable proportions. Now, mentally at that of a caveman, Bruce can no longer function as a scientist but instead a primitive beast who can neither control his rage or unnaturally given super-strength. For this gruesome, immaculate green mass he appears to be, he is called the Hulk.

    Dr. Betty Ross [more commonly referred to as Betty - in addition to being Bruce's girlfriend is also daughter of the Hulk's mortal enemy, her father, General Ross - once formerly Bruce's boss], is the only one who can comfort or even reason with the beast. She, many a time, appears in trouble, and the Hulk is there to save the day. She works non-stop [day and night] accompanied by Rick Jones, the guilt-ridden boy, as well as Bruce Banner himself [after he calms down and reverts back into his former self from time to time] on a cure from this cursed life as a monster.

    Whilst the first season was one which had a clear direction and a forumlated story arc, the following season saw the series change it's title to "The Incredible Hulk and She-Hulk", and the episodes became more focused on humour and cliched world domination plots.moreless

    Hanabishi Recca is a descendant of the Hokage Ninja clan, a group of feared warriors from feudal-era Japan. He was born 400 years ago to Ohka, the 26th Leader of the clan, and Kagero, a beautiful young woman. The son of a Flame Master, Recca inherited the ability to create flame from his hands, and thus was destined to become the next leader of the clan. Roughly one year after his birth, the Hokage came into conflict with the troops of Oda Nobunaga, a powerful warlord who was seeking their Elemental Weapons, and were brutally wiped out. Kagero, determined to save her son, used a forbidden Hokage technique to send him 400 years into the future where he would be safe, or so she hoped. At the beginning of the series, Recca is a 16-year old schoolboy, completely unaware of his heritage, despite the fact that he harbours an extreme obsession of all things ninja-related. One day he meets Sakoshita Yanagi, a teenage girl who's life he saves by pushing her out of the way of falling pipes. Severly injured in the process, Recca is healed by Yanagi, and swears that he will become her Ninja, and will always protect her. From then on he refers to her as his "Hime." It soon becomes apparent that an ancient enemy has followed Recca to his new time, one who shares a connection with him from the distant past.

At first the show seems to be just another show about Government spies and greyliens, but look closer and you will see much deeper. The plot thickens. The Greys, it seems, are only hosts for the real aliens, called the Hive. The Hive are much more dangerous than was previously imaginable with the Greys.

Due to the Season's 3 shocker of Eddie's and Tommy's death and the departure of Lt. Cooper, the fans started to lose interest in the show. Ratings slowly started to go down and the show didn't last beyond the 4th season. Still, to this day, the show remains to be one the best show that will be missed.moreless

This plague of nano-viruses, released by the Shadow's servants, the Drakh, in retaliation for the Shadow War (see Babylon 5 season 4 for details), will kill all mammalian life on Earth within five years if the cure is not found.

    CBS (ended 2000)
    Sammo Law is a Chinese law officer and a martial arts expert transferred to America looking for an old nemesis. During the search, Sammo will join the police department and work with a group of detectives on police cases.

    The show ran for two years on CBS, and it endured cast revamps, which were probably the main reason why the show ended only after two years.

    After only 5 episodes, Tammy Lauren exited the show, and both Louis Mandylor and Tom Wright exited the show after the first season. During the first season, a new character was introduced (played by Arsenio Hall) and was soon made a regular.

    People loved the show, because it was a good combination of action, martial arts and comedy, but not enough to keep it going.moreless
