    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

    Dodge City, known as the Sodom and Gomorrah of the plains, is a typical frontier city of the late 1800s with typical problems ranging from rumored Indian raids to bank and stage robberies, cattle rustling, and family feuds. All of these must be dealt with within the law and that task falls to Matt Dillon, US Marshal (James Arness).

    Dillon is a man who prefers the use of logic over the use of the gun but the nature of the people passing through Dodge doesn't always leave him that choice. Aided by various assistants and deputies over the years (played by Dennis Weaver, Burt Reynolds, and Ken Curtis), he does his best to keep the lawless element out of his town and his territory. Matt often solves his crimes through keen observation and deduction, an innovative approach for the times.

    Crucial information about cases is often provided by his beautiful companion, Long Branch owner Kitty Russell(Amanda Blake), while they drink beer or whiskey in her establishment. Matt also often exchanges banter or bounces his theories off of the crusty town doctor, Galen Adams (Milburn Stone).moreless

    "If you need help, then look no further. Angel Investigations is the best. Our rats are low..." "Rates!" "It says 'rats.' Our rates are low, but our standards are high. When the chips are down, and you're at the end of your rope you need someone that you can count on. And that's what you'll find here -- someone who will go all the way, no matter what. So don't lose hope. Come on over to our offices and you'll see that there's still heroes in this world." For over two centuries, Angelus was one of the most vicious vampires ever to walk the earth. Then he killed the wrong girl, and her grieving Gypsy family cursed him with the return of his soul, causing him to suffer remorse for all the hundreds of innocents that he had killed through the years. Now he goes by the name Angel, and he fights to protect the helpless from those who would prey upon them as he once did himself. After three years of living in Sunnydale, fighting alongside his girlfriend Buffy, Angel has moved to Los Angeles to continue the good fight. Aided by a few old friends and some new ones, Angel must take on vampires, demons, lawyers, and all of the other dark forces that Los Angeles has to offer.moreless

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. The core members are Brain, Monsieur Mallah, Madame Rouge, and General Immortus. Their plan is to take over the world. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Kid Flash - A bolt of lightning endowed young Wally West with super-speed, enabling him to become Kid Flash, protégé to the Flash. When the Flash was slain during a great crisis, Wally became the Flash in honor of his fallen mentor. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=~=~=~=~=~ Red Star - Leonid Kovar's exposure to a meteorite gave him powers - enabling him to become Russia's first young hero as Starfire.

    Kagome Higurashi is a modern day young girl who lives with her family by the old Higure shrine. 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".

Shippo - Shippo is a young fox-demon with shape-shifting abilities. He likes Inuyasha and is fiercely loyal to Kagome. Sango - Sango the demon hunter lost her whole village to Naraku's forces. Her preferred weapon is a giant boomerang. Sesshomaru - Sesshomaru is Inuyasha's older, pure-demon brother. He seeks the magic sword that his father gave to Inuyasha. Miroku - A Buddhist monk who, because of a curse from Naraku, has a Wind Tunnel (it's like a black hole) in his right hand. He is also quite the pervert. Naraku - Naraku is the villain of the series. His name translates as the word, "hell". He was born through the thief Onigumo's desire for Kikyo when he called dozens of demons in to devour himself. He has the ablilty to change his form into anything he wants, which he did to trick Inuyasha and Kikyo into hating each other. He has used Inuyasha's brother Sesshomaru to try and get rid of Inuyasha, but to no avail. He also has an 'army' of bug-type creatures, called Saimyosho. 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. He also says that he is in love with Kagome, which makes Inuyasha quite annoyed. Koga wants Naraku dead because he created Kagura who killed many of his friends from his tribe.moreless

    NBC (ended 1973)
    White-haired Ben was the proud patriarch of the Cartwrights, the family at the center of one of TV's most beloved and long-running series. Their ranch, the Ponderosa, was 1,000 square-miles (600,000 acres) in size and sprawled from mountainous shores of Lake Tahoe to the desert terrain near Virginia City in the Nevada Territory. Ben oversaw his frontier empire with the help of his three sons: Adam, Hoss, and Joe. The series was set in 1859 when the series began and would progress through and following the Civil War.
    ---------------------------------- Series creator and producer David Dortort, who oversaw the series during its 14 year network run on NBC, says he first first got the idea for the series writing the 1953 episode of "Fireside Theatre" titled "Man of the Comstock."
    ---------------------------------- By 1959, NBC wanted a big filmed series to promote the sales of color television sets. NBC was the only network investing in color programs since its parent company RCA owned the electronic color transmitting system used by TV. "Bonanza" was just the type of show the network needed to "show off" its living color. In its initial season, it floundered in the ratings on Saturday nights against CBS' "Perry Mason"; it's said its renewal had a lot to do with its being shot in color. In the second season, "Bonanza" more than held its own in the Nielsens. It was the network's decision to move the series to Sunday nights that allowed it explode into a Top-10 hit.
    ---------------------------------- "Bonanza" differed in many ways from the dozens of other westerns on the air during its run. It relied more heavily on the characters than it did on action--though there was plenty of that. Good and bad weren't always as simple as "black hats" vs. "white hats"; many times, good people didn't live happily ever after. Despite that, Ben imparted a high code of ethics upon his sons. Among the principles: 1-Intolerance and bigotry were not acceptable. The Cartwrights often came to the defense of Indians, Chinese, and others who were the targets of the narrow-minded. 2-Once a man had paid his debt to society and was released from prison, he deserved a clean slate and a chance to start over. 3-The land was sacred. Ben's greatest business headaches came from his refusal to allow his land to be polluted and destroyed for profit. When the Cartwrights cut down a tree for lumber, they planted another. Their environmental concerns remain unique for a television series.
    ---------------------------------- Ben's path to his dream home of the Ponderosa (named for the Ponderosa Pine, plentiful in that area) was a long time in coming. He was a seaman, acting as first mate for Captain Abel Stoddard, when he met his boss' daughter Elizabeth and fell in love. She died after giving birth to first child Adam. Leaving the sad memories behind in the Northeast, he traveled to St. Louis and opened a trading company. He met and married the Swedish stunner Inger Inger Borgstrom who loved horses and shooting. She gave birth to son Hoss en route to the frontier, but was killed by an arrow during an ambush. Moving to New Orleans, Ben became an importer/exporter and fell for Creole beauty Marie DeMarigny. He made her wife number three and finally made it to the West. They established the Ponderosa and she gave him another son, Joseph. Marie died several years later in a riding accident. The story of each of these romance were detailed in individual episodes early in the series' run.
    ---------------------------------- The high mortality rate of women encountered by Ben and his sons, known jokingly as the "Cartwright Curse," became a running gag among comedians and viewers alike. If a female became a love interest to any of the show's men, even money says she'll be sick, dying, or dead by the end credits.
    --------------------------- Location filming kept the series from feeling "studio bound" and gave Bonanza a chance to highlight its color cinematography. Though much was filmed on a huge sound stage at Paramount Studios, scenes were regularly shot on the studio's outdoor "Western Street" and on locations throughout Southern California and Lake Tahoe, Nevada. The rising cost of shooting at Paramount eventually forced a move to the Warner Brothers studio in Burbank. To explain the new appearance of Virginia City, Season 12 began with "The Night Virginia City Died" where a huge fire destroyed the "old" town.
    ---------------------------------- Changes inevitably took place among cast members during "Bonanza"'s long run. After several years of complaining about being held back from a movie career, Pernell Roberts was finally sent on his merry way after of Season 6. Prior to that, amid fears of Roberts' departure, Guy Williams was brought in for a few episodes as Ben's nephew Will Cartwright. It's said the cast resented his character being added and he disappeared after five appearances. Beginning with "Sense of Duty" in Season 9, David Canary joined the cast as Ponderosa ranch foreman Candy Canady. He practically became a Cartwright, appearing in roughly a third of the series' total episodes. He disappeared with no mention at the end of season eleven after failing to get a raise from producer Dortort. Young orphaned teenager Jamie Hunter did become a real fourth Cartwright son when he was taken in by Ben in Season 12 and legally adopted in "A Home for Jamie" the next season. In the wake of Dan Blocker's death following Season 13, the cast was beefed up. David Canary returned as Candy (reportedly Michael Landon personally asked him to appear) and Tim Matheson was added a Griff King, a young man paroled into Ben's custody who was hired as a ranch hand.
    ---------------------------------- The loss of Blocker left a hole that simply couldn't be filled. This, combined with the show's move to Tuesday nights after eleven years on Sunday, dealt the series a death blow. Ratings took a nosedive and Bonanza aired it final episode in the middle of Season 14 on January 16. 1973.
    ---------------------------------- After all these years, Bonanza remains hugely popular. Besides the quality of the program itself, having filmed in color has kept it from looking "old". Episodes began to be released by CBS/Paramount on DVD beginning in 2009, and were uncut from their network airing with all the original music intact.

    We can't tell you who we are. Or where we live. It's too risky, and we've got to be careful. Really careful. So we don't trust anyone. Because if they find us ... well, we just won't let them find us. The things you should know is that everyone is in really big trouble. Yeah. Even You.

    Animorphs was originally based on the book series created by K.A. Applegate. Most of the episodes that have appeared are based on one of the books, but some are totally created by one of the Television crew. In this battle against parasitic aliens, called Yeerks, five children, Jake played by Shawn Ashmore, Rachel played by Brooke Nevin, Marco played by Boris Cabrera, and Tobias who is played by Christopher Ralph; was given the power to morph into any creature by an Andalite named Elfangor-Sirinial-Shamtul (Diego Matamoros) to fight Visser Three (Eugene Lipinski) and his fellow Yeerks. An Andalite who is named Aximili-Esgarrouth-Isthill (Paulo Costanzo), the brother of Elfangor joins the battle along the Animorphs.

    It has been over five years since the Animorphs joined up, and given the power to morph into creatures, to fight the evil Yeerks. It was an amazing battle; the Animorphs had some good times, and some bad times, but they were always together, trying to save the world.

    It was June 1996, when the first Animorphs book was released by K.A. (Katherine) Applegate, and now, the last book written was in 2001. The count of 54 regular Animorph books, 4 Megamorphs, 4 Chronicles, and 2 Alternamorphs, and including 26 episodes of the Animorphs TV Series, and an incredible supply of merchandise (transformers, games, etc...) and a television show in 1998 due to the rising popularity of the books.

    Now, that huge battle between good and evil, the human race fighting along side with the Andalites, and many other species, battling against the parasitic aliens, Yeerks, has ended.

    However, due to ratings and the show's inability to outdo the ratings FOX's Goosebumps had achieved the previous year, Nickelodeon's executives abruptly ended the show in the fall of 1999; there was no "big finish" finale and the show never had its own version of the books' ending between the Animorphs and Visser Three. Since the books would outdo the show into early 2000, there had been no plan for an ending anyway. However, it would have been too costly to follow like the books' ending, since the series' conclusion involved a nuclear strike on the Yeerk pool and many other horrific (hard to do with Nickelodeon's budget) battles.moreless
