    CBS (ended 2005)
    JAG (military-speak for Judge Advocate General) is an adventure drama about this elite legal wing of officers trained as lawyers who investigate, prosecute and defend those accused of crimes in the military, including murder, treason and terrorism. Navy Cmdr. Harmon "Harm" Rabb (David James Elliott), an ace pilot turned lawyer, and Marine Lt. Col. Sarah "Mac" MacKenzie (Catherine Bell), a beautiful by-the-book officer, are colleagues who hold the same high standards but find themselves clashing when they choose different routes to get to the same place. The unmistakable chemistry between them must be held at bay for professional reasons as they traverse the globe together with a single mission: to search for and discover the truth. Helping them with their mission is Navy Lt. Cmdr. Bud Roberts (Patrick Labyorteaux), a lawyer who proved his grit and determination when, after losing a leg in a land mine field while on a mission, fought back and became even better at his job, and Cmdr. Sturgis Turner (Scott Lawrence), a JAG lawyer who was Harm's friend at the Naval Academy and now has a friendly rivalry in and out of the courtroom with him, as well as with Lt. Cmdr. Roberts. Also on the team is P.O. Jennifer Coates (Zoe McLellan), formerly Admiral Chegwidden's outspoken assistant, and now assigned to help the new JAG settle into the job.moreless

    Battlestar Galactica

    Syfy (ended 2010)
    The Best Show on Television? Yes, according to Time Magazine, The National Review, Rolling Stone and New York Newsday. Praised by The New York Times, The New Yorker, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Chicago Tribune and many other publications, Battlestar Galactica won a prestigious Peabody Award in the spring of 2006. Ronald D. Moore, the producer of Carnivale and writer for Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, boldly re-imagined the original 1978 space opera of humans versus the robotic Cylons. He teamed up with fellow executive producer David Eick on a powerful and dramatic update of the Galactica story. Gone are the technobabble, disco-themed costumes and Egyptian helmets of the original series. The modern show introduces new elements to the Galactica story. The Cylons have developed human-form models that are indistinguishable from real humans. The Cylons have a monotheistic religion in contrast to the polytheistic religion of the human Colonies. The approach is serious and intense, with a focus on tough political, philosophical and religious issues set in a tale that manages to keep the focus on realistic and not always perfect characters.

    In the miniseries, the Cylons launch a massive attack against the humans and wipe out the Twelve Colonies, sending the 47,000 survivors on a desperate search for the fabled 13th colony -- Earth. Season One Overview The Cylons declare war on humanity, wiping out billions in an unprovoked first strike. The Colonial fleet is all but eliminated leaving just a handful of ships, including the soon to be decommissioned battlestar Galactica. Galactica is manned by a crew that never expected to be involved in real duty. With the president gone and the government all but eliminated, Laura Roslin, the Education Minister, takes on the mantle of President of the 12 Colonies. Gaius Baltar, a top researcher in Artificial Intelligence, inadvertently betrayed humanity by allowing a Cylon agent into the defense network, rendering it and all of the Colonial military forces impotent in the face of the Cylon attacks. He sees her everywhere when no one else can. He initially attributes this to stress-induced hallucinations. She tells him that she implanted a chip in his brain during their time on Caprica, which enables her to talk to him. Over the season Baltar falls in love with the Cylon, Number Six, eventually betraying humanity again and again. A lone soldier is trapped on Cylon-occupied Caprica, having given up his seat on a transport for Baltar, as he believes that his own life is not as important as one of the greatest minds of their time. He struggles against the odds, trying to stay alive amid the hostile Cylons. He is surprised to learn that Sharon Valerii, the pilot of the transport, returned for him. However, the truth is that she is actually another human-form Cylon. Sharon and Helo spend the season trying to escape Caprica. Sharon also finds herself falling in love with her human target. The season ends with her pregnant and fighting to save his life. Meanwhile, the copy of Sharon onboard Galactica (known as "Boomer") has set off several bombs and engaged in other acts of sabotage. The season ends with a stunning turn of events after a successful mission to disable a Cylon base ship. For a more detailed overview of the first three seasons, visit the pinned thread titled "Battlestar Galactica in Just Ten Minutes" located in the forum. Awards and critical praise The 2003 miniseries was the highest-rated miniseries on the Sci Fi Channel (soon to be known as Syfy) at the time. It was also the most successful cable miniseries that TV season.

    The first regular season premiered to excellent viewer numbers and critical acclaim. After the midseason break in Season Two, the show received widespread recognition from the mainstream media, including several outlets not always known for their interest in science fiction. As mentioned above, Time Magazine named BSG the best show on television for 2005. Rolling Stone Magazine and New York Newsday also named BSG the best show of the year. Many other publications like the New York Times and the Chicago Tribune lavished praise on the series.

    The American Film Institute added the show to its list of the ten best television shows of 2005. The show won Emmy Awards in the usual sci-fi categories of special visual effects but it also received Emmy nominations for writing and directing. It also won a prestigious Peabody award for its general excellence in creativity in the television medium. The Sci Fi Channel has used creative means to promote the series, including the release of certain episodes as free streaming video on the official website. In the month leading up to the start of Season Three, the Sci Fi Channel aired a Web-only series titled Battlestar Galactica: The Resistance. The brief, 2 to 3 minute episodes revealed key events from the time period between the Season Two finale and the Season Three premiere episode. Another Web-only series was shown on the official website in the lead-up to the Season 4.5 "final" episodes. A Battlestar Galactica television movie, "Razor", was broadcast in late 2007, followed soon after with a release on DVD. The story followed the struggles of Admiral Cain and young Kendra Shaw as they tried to survive the Cylon attack on the Colonies. The hard-hitting movie was well received by fans and critics. Even though the series "ended" on March 20, 2009, with the two-hour broadcast of "Daybreak, Part 2", the Sci Fi Channel (Syfy) will broadcast one final Battlestar Galactica television movie. "The Plan" is scheduled to air in the fall of 2009. The Galactica franchise will live on, even after the final movie and DVD. A prequel series, Caprica, began production even before Battlestar Galactica ended. The pilot movie will be released as a stand-alone DVD in April 2009. The movie will later air on Syfy along with regular episodes of the new series in 2010. For more information about this look at the early days of the development of the Cylons on Caprica, please consult the separate guide for that series. Original Broadcast History: Season One October 18, 2004 - January 24, 2005 - 8:00 PM SKY One (UK) January 14, 2005 - April 1, 2005 - Fridays @ 10:00 PM Sci Fi Channel (USA)moreless

Unbeknownst to Kagome, she is the reincarnation of priestess Kikyo and possesses the "Jewel of Four Souls" (the Shikon jewel). One ill-fated day, Kagome locates an ancient well near her home and is abruptly transported through the well and into a feudal Japan, inhabited by demons. There, she encounters Inuyasha, son of a powerful demon father and a human mother, who is pinned to a tree by an enchanted arrow. Kagome frees Inuyasha from the tree before she learns that all of the demons, including Inuyasha, are after the Shikon jewel in her possession. To prevent the jewel from being stolen, Kagome accidentally shoots it with the enchanted arrow, shattering it into thousands of pieces. The evil Naraku also seeks the jewel for his own reasons. New allies, Kagome and Inuyasha, join forces with Shippo, a small fox-demon, Miroku, a monk, and Sango, the sole surviving demon-hunter, in order to combat Naraku and recover the fragments of the "Jewel of Four Souls".

Naraku is also a half-demon like Inuyasha, but born in a different way. Naraku can choose the time of month to return to his 'original' form. He uses this time to re-arrange his body into a stronger and more powerful form. Naraku also gains the ablilty to make offspring, later. Koga - Koga is the son of a leader of the wolf demon tribe. He has 2 Shikon jewel shards in his legs (one in each) which gives him super speed. He first comes into the story when he attacks the village where Rin lived.

    Created by Craig McCracken, The Powerpuff Girls has become popular with a broad audience. The Powerpuff Girls first incarnation was as a project for Craig McCracken's college class at The California Arts Institution in 1992. Three years later, the crew at Cartoon Network saw it and gave it its first pilot in 1995. Later on in the following year, The Powerpuff Girls had their second pilot, and finally a TV series in 1998.

    The show is about three little girls who were created in a laboratory experiment by Professor Utonium, who combined sugar, spice, and everything nice in an effort to create the perfect little girl. However, the professor accidentally added some "Chemical X" into the mix, and the three girls were born from the resulting explosion. With their super charged powers, they challenge the forces of evil so that justice will prevail.

    The Powerpuff Girls is one of Cartoon Network's original animated series and is part of the collection known as Cartoon Cartoons.

    The Powerpuff Girls is one of Cartoon Network's highest rating shows.

    Characters:

    Blossom - According to the closing credits' theme song, Blossom is "commander and the leader" of the Powerpuff Girls. The most intelligent and intellectual one of them all, she comes up with most of the plans to defeat the villains. She has very long red hair. At times she can be bossy but she always finds a way to keep her sisters from fighting each other. Her element is everything nice.

    Bubbles - Bubbles is "the joy and the laughter" of the group. As the sweetest one of all, she is overly sensitive and just hates to fight with her sisters. Even though she may seem bubbly on the outside she really is tough on the inside and proves at times to be hardcore as her sisters. Her element is sugar.

    Buttercup - Buttercup is "the toughest fighter." Her philosophy is to fight first and ask questions later. She is the most eager to defeat the villains on their missions. Though she seems tough all the time, she does have a sensitive side to her, which she rarely shows. Her element is spice.

    Professor Utonium - The creator of The Powerpuff Girls, Professor Utonium is their father-figure who guides, teaches, and loves the girls.

    Mojo Jojo - The most maniacal of all the villains, Mojo hates The Powerpuff Girls with a vengeance. He used to be known simply as Jojo, the Professor's lab assistant, but after The Powerpuff Girls' birth, the chemicals that created them affected him as well and mutated his brain. Ever since then, he's dedicated his life to crushing them and the world that loves them.

    Him - Known as the evilest of evil, Him is a devil figure who despises The Powerpuff Girls. His plans to destroy them are typically the most psychologically twisted, but he always fails in his efforts.

    Fuzzy Lumpkins - A country hillbilly. Fuzzy doesn't really care about world domination or taking over Townsville. He just wants people off his property, and turns into a dangerous monster that the girls must fight when anyone violates his personal space.

    Princess Morebucks - A spoiled brat with a rotten temper. Princess is rich and gets anything she wants -- but when she meets The Powerpuff Girls, having super powers is what she wants most but can never have. She uses technology to act duplicitous, in hopes of either joining or destroying the Powerpuff Girls, but her efforts always fail.

    The Mayor - The dumb, but lovable ruler of Townsville. He mindlessly watches over Townsville and when there's trouble he uses the hotline and alerts the Powerpuff Girls right away.

    Ms. Bellum - The beautiful brains behind the Mayor. Whenever the Mayor does something stupid, she corrects it. He would be lost without her. She is also an important female role model for the Powerpuff Girls. In many ways, Ms. Bellum and the Powerpuff Girls are the most powerful people in Townsville.

    Ms. Keane - A teacher at Pokey Oaks Kindergarten who is a mentor to The Powerpuff Girls. She is gentle and kind, and when there are problems in the oom, she shows The Powerpuff Girls a better solution without violence.

    The Amoeba Boys - Three villains that desperately try to come up with crimes worthy of getting the Powerpuff Girls attention, so they can be considered super villains and go to jail. But they're just amoebas, and their efforts never really come to much.

    The Gang Green Gang - A gang comprised of 5 mutated green-skinned teens. Their names are Ace, Big Billy, Grubber, Snake, and Lil' Arturo. Unlike most villains they are not that concerned about taking over Townsville. They just love to commit petty crimes.

    Sedusa - Yet another villain, Sedusa is a medusa-like figure who has snake-like hair, the source of her superpowers. She is a master of disguise who uses her feminine wiles to seduce men into giving her want she wants and escaping crimes.

    The Rowdyruff Boys - The evil male counterparts of The Powerpuff Girls, these three boys were originally created by Mojo Jojo, using snips, snails, and puppy-dog tails, which he mixed together in a disgusting prison toilet. Their powers are a fairly even match for the girls.

    In a lost age, the world is divided into four nations: the Water Tribes, the Earth Kingdom, the Fire Nation, and the Air Nomads. Within each nation, there is a remarkable order of men and women called the "benders" who can learn to harness their inborn talent and manipulate their native element. Bending is a powerful form combining martial art and elemental magic. In each generation, only one bender is solely capable of controlling all four elements. That bender is the Avatar. The Avatar is the spirit of the world manifested in human form. When the Avatar dies, it reincarnates into the next nation in the cycle. Starting with the mastery of his or her native element, the Avatar learns to bend all four elements. Throughout the ages, the countless incarnations of the Avatar have served to keep the four nations in harmony. Then, the Fire Nation launched a war against the other three nations. Just as the world needed the Avatar the most, he mysteriously vanished. A hundred years later, the Fire Nation is near final victory in its ruthless war of world domination. The Air Nomads were destroyed, the Air Temples ravished, and all airbender monks eradicated. The Water Tribes were raided and driven to the brink of extinction. The Earth Kingdom remains and fights a hopeless war against the Fire Nation. Many believe the Avatar was never reborn into the Air Nomads and the cycle is broken. In the desolated South Pole, a lone Water tribe struggles to survive. It is here that the village's last remaining waterbender Katara and her warrior brother Sokka rescue a strange 12-year-old boy named Aang who has been suspended in hibernation in an iceberg. The Water tribe soon discovers that Aang is not only an Airbender--the extinct race no one has seen in a century--but also the long lost Avatar. Now Katara and Sokka must safeguard the child Avatar in his journey to master all four elements and save the world from the Fire Nation.

One hundred years have passed, and Fire Nation is nearing victory in the war. Two years ago, my father and the men of my tribe journeyed to the Earth Kingdom to help fight against the Fire Nation, leaving me and my brother to look after our tribe. Some people believe that the Avatar was never reborn into Air Nomads, and that the circle is broken. But I haven't lost hope. I still believe that, somehow, The Avatar will return to save the world. Chapters 3+ Water. Earth. Fire. Air. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony, But everything changed when the fire nation attacked. Only the Avatar, the master of all four elements, could stop them. But when the world needed him most, he vanished.

Character Bios & Super Powers: Robin was formerly the sidekick of the legendary vigilante, Batman, Robin has moved beyond sidekick status to become the Gung-Ho leader of the Teen Titans. With no powers of his own, Robin relies on nothing but his wits and brains to solve problems. After years of training with his former partner, Robin has become fearless and determined, giving it everything he has and fighting to the death. He also has a full loaded utility belt, which includes a Bo-Staff, Birdarangs, Smoke Pellets, Freeze Disks, Explosive Bombs, Electro Disks, and a Grappling Hook. Robin has grown to be a very talented fighter when battling enemies by using his Speed, Martial Arts Skills, Intellect, and reflexes. Robin's primary goal is to find out what this criminal mastermind "Slade" is up to. He even disguised himself as a master thief, Red X, to try and trick Slade into revealing his plans, but unfortunatley Robin's plan backfired, and Slade knew the whole time that Robin was X. Robin's determination to catch Slade even caused him to be caught by Slade and was forced to be his Apprentice in order to save his friends lives. Ever since Slade's 'apparent' death, Robin has been haunted with one question: Is Slade still alive? Super Powers: He has no powers, but he is a very highly trained Martial Artist, has outstanding speed, Awesome reflexes, an intellegent mind, and a full loaded utility belt including Birdarangs, a Grappling Hook, a Bo-Staff, Freeze Disks, Explosive Bombs, and Smoke Pellets. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Starfire is the peacekeeping one, she hates to see the others fighting. She often appears weird to the others with her alien customs and lack of knowledge about Earth. She also has a crush on Robin even though she doesn't show it much. Super Powers: Flight, great strength, star-bolts (energy blasts from her hands), eye lasers (from the episode "Transformation" and onwards). -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Beast Boy is the joker of the team, he enjoys playing pranks and doing things just for a laugh, he ends up as the target of many pranks himself as well (mostly by Cyborg). Unable to take anything seriously, he makes jokes and one-liners even when fighting Supervillians, Beastboy seems to have an interest in the character Terra, who joins the team for a short while. Super Powers: Can change into any animal. However it is unclear exactly where the limit of his power is because he doesn't seem able to transform into any made-up animals or any alien creatures (except in "Betrothed"), but he can become a dinosaur or other extinct animal. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Raven is the mysterious one, she reveals little about herself and doesn't let anyone into her room. Raven has to remain calm in any situation as her powers are driven by her emotions (a bit like Starfire's). We discovered in "Birthmark" that Raven has been destined to end the world since she born. Super Powers: Telekinesis (this includes moving herself to levitate), she can create solid shapes (hands, shields etc...), out of dark energy she can also pass through walls (although she has only done this 3 times), telepathy (see "Haunted"), teleportation (as seen in "Deception"), she can also unleash her soul-self (as she did in "Nevermore" and "Aftershock (1)"), she can stop time (as shown in "Birthmark"), and can send people to alternate dimensions, like she threatened to do to Beast Boy in "Every Dog Has His Day." -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Cyborg is a talented engineer with a passion for vehicles, he built the Titans' car and the submarine and is very protective of both of them. Except when it comes to the car, Cyborg is pretty laid back, he plays a lot of video games. Super Powers: Great strength, Enhanced Vision, can turn right arm into a sonic cannon, a chain saw, or a hand grapple, has various built in gadgets including a foot laser, a flashlight, a detachable fore arm, and a welding torch. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Terra was the strange new comer. She didn't step in till the second season, episode "Terra." At first, she was welcomed with open arms and gladly stood beside the Titans fighting Slade. But sadly, she turned the Titans over to Slade and revealed she had been working for him since she left Titan's Tower in "Terra." But she redeemed herself by turning on Slade at a peak moment and presumably killed him at the cost of her own life. Super Powers: Terra has the ability of telekinesis. She can move anything made from the earth. She usually gets transported by a moving stone. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Slade is a criminal mastermind whom is very determined to take over the city and destroy the Teen Titans. Patient, cunning, slick, and doing whatever it takes to get what he wants, Slade is easily the toughest foe the Titans have ever faced. Slade often hires other villains to do his dirty work. His first plan was revealed when he launched a "Chronotan Detonator" - a device that can freeze time while we know it. Robin went out to catch him, while the others went for the detonator - but the detonator was a fake to shoot probes into the other Titans. Slade forced Robin to commit crimes as his apprentice or he will activate the probes and destroy the Titans. Luckily, the Titans found out about Slade's plans and defeated him. He later returned and captured the Titans newest "friend" Terra. He tought her how to control her powers and sent her to spy on the Titans and give him everything he'd ever need to know about them - codes, weaknesses, strengths, everything. In his last battle with them, Terra turned back on him and threw him into a pit of lava. He was presumed dead by the Titans, but Robin couldn't help wonder if he was really dead or not considering that his body was never found. Robin got his answer after Cinderblock busted out of jail and he was hurled into a vast forest: Slade was standing right in front of him. And when the other Titans said that they couldn't see him and that he wasn't really there, Robin decided that he was the only one who could stop him. Slade had almost killed Robin, but luckily Robin found out that he wasn't really there and was only in his mind and stopped his nemesis once and for all. The Titans learn that before his last act of cruelity, Slade pulled off one last trick -- the dust in his mask made Robin able to see, hear, and feel him even though he wasn't really there. But the dust didn't trigger on it's own -- someone activated it... but who? A while later, on Raven's birthday, Slade mysteriously arose from the ashes of the volcano Terra made and found out the secret of Raven's birthday -- Trigon. Trigon gave him ultimate powers and he headed out to show Raven the Prophecy that was to come of her destroying the world and Trigon being released into the real world. Raven may have stopped him, but he vows to Trigon that he will fulfill that Prophecy at all costs. Super Powers: Expert martial artist; genius I.Q.; skilled in engineering, robotics, biology, and invention; possibly has moderate skills in sorcery (as shown in "Forces of Nature") uses various weapons, most notably cybernetic strength-enhancing body armor. In "Birthmark," he gained the abilities to manipulate fire, fly, melt through objects, and create fire walls. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Trigon is a giant evil red demon who was banished from the real world, though he has the power to send his voice and energy into the real world. On Raven's birthday, he gave Slade his mystical powers and sent him to show Raven a glance at the horrible Prophecy that was foretold on her birthday by revealing the birthmarks on her that are only visible on her birthday. The Prophecy was of her destroying the world and summoning Trigon back into the real world. Slade vows to Trigon that he will fulfill that prophecy at all costs. Super Powers: Heat Eyes, Manipulate Fire, Superstrength, others not known as of yet. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Brother Blood is the new ruler of the H.I.V.E., who didn't debut until Season 3. After Slade's 'apparent' death in "Aftershock (2)," Brother Blood became the new ruler of the H.I.V.E. acedemy. Brother Blood was able to hypnotize people into helping the H.I.V.E. to dirty work. When Brother Blood found out that his student 'Stone' was Cyborg and was trying to spy on his plans, he was able to talk Cyborg into helping. Cyborg tricked Blood and backfired on him, but this surely wasn't the end of him He later made another H.I.V.E. fortress underwater, and what Cyborg didn't know was that when he was at his school, Brother Blood downloaded his blueprints that gave him acess to anything he'd ever need to know about Cyborg, and was also able to create a doomsday device that could flood the whole city. The Titans were able to defeat him again, but he got away again. Brother Blood later arrived in Steel City, where he hypnotized the new Titans East members -- Aqualad, Speedy, Bumblebee, and Mas Y Menos and made them create a new Titans Tower there and lure Cyborg into it. When Cyborg had fallen for the hypnotized Titans East's trap, Blood had the perfect time to strike and put his master plan to work -- making himself a cyborg as well. This new cyborg form would give him equal powers to Cyborg and was able to take Cyborg down easily and was eagerly ripping through his mechanical body trying to find what made him resist his mind control, but good triumphed over evil and Cyborg was able to defeat Blood once and for all. He now serves time in prison. Super Powers: Expert fighter, high I.Q, and many mental powers including mind control. Blood also seems to be able to create small force fields with his hands and has the ability to walk on water ("Titans East (1)"). After Blood converted himself to cyborg, he gained super strength, energy blasts, and the ability to teleport over short distances. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Red X is a mysterious Super Thief with tons of special abilities, who jumped into town, robbing strange micro-chips. Red X turned out to be Robin, and his real plan was to trick Slade into revealing his plans to him, so he could stop him once and for all. After failing to capture Slade, Robin sealed the Red X suit into a vault. Later, a strange man nabbed it from the vault and gained control of the Red X powers, and began robbing banks, etc. Robin planned to nab X and take care of the problem that he started. Unfortuanatley, X got away, but Robin was able to steal X's belt so he could do no harm. Super Powers: Martial arts, stealth, X-Blasts. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ The Brotherhood of Evil are the main villains in the fifth season.

    CBS (ended 2001)
    Cordell Walker is a contemporary Texas Ranger working out of the Dallas office who believed in dealing with criminals the old-fashioned way--by beating them up. Despite the rules that governed the way law-enforcement officers were supposed to act. Walker's approach closely resembled the "eye for an eye" school of crime fighting. His partner is young Jimmy Trivette, who had grown up in the slums of Baltimore and used football as his ticket to a college education and a career with the Dallas Cowboys until he busted his shoulder. Despite Jimmy's belief in computers and scientific criminology, working with Walker, always seemed to leave him bruised and sore--when Walker was trying to get information or take people into custody it was more than likely there would be a fistfight or karate kicks. County Assistant D.A. Alex Cahill, his sometimes girlfriend, frowned on Walker's methods, even if they did get results. When not on duty Walker and the others hung out at C.D.'s, the saloon/restaurant owned by his buddy C.D. Parker, a former Ranger forced into early retirement after taking a bullet in the knee, who still provided help and advice on cases. Uncle Ray was the wise old Native American who had raised Walker. He died at the end of the 3rd season. Star Chuck Norris, former karate champion and movie star, played Walker in the deadpan unemotional style he used in most of his feature films. Nothing ever seemed to excite him, and the violence on the show had a cartoon quality about it. There was a surrealistic efficiency about Walker--he almost never broke sweat, got hurt, or wasted a blow--using violence because it was necessary but never glorying on it. This is Norris' first time in a TV series.moreless
