    Special Unit 2 (SU2) is a secret division of the Chicago Police Department. They are such a mystery that no one outside of their unit is aware of what they really do, they just know to stay out of their way. The SU2 headquarters is an abandoned subway station that you can only enter through the hidden door at the back of the Golden Eagle dry cleaners. The mission of SU2 is to track down and rid the city of what they call "Links". A Link is a creature that evolved from the missing link between man and beast. The captain of the unit is Richard Page (Richard Gant, "The Bonnie Hunt Show") who is a veteran police officer who will use any method to rid the city of links. Detective Nick O'Malley (Michael Landes, "Lois and Clark: The New Adventure of Superman") is a renegade who acts first and thinks later and surprisingly this gets the job done. Detective Kate Benson (Alexondra Lee, "Party of Five") is a "big thinker" who has an unique ability of being able to track down links. Teamed with Nick, they make the perfect partners, but never seem to get romantically connected althrough they connect in that way. Carl (Danny Woodburn, "Conan") is a petty gnome thief who has turned informant for the unit in exchange for overlooking his crimes. He is always in fight with Nick. Sean Radmon (Sean Whalen, "Amazin Live Sea-Monkeys") is a college professor who informs the detectives about the technical aspects of the links, hopefully in words they can understand. (season 1) Jonathan (Jonathan Togo, "CSI: Miami") is the science guy brought in to replace Sean in season 1. Jonathan has his own unique way of delivering the facts. His methods are totally different from Sean's but he gets the job done just the same.moreless

    MTV - Music Television (ended 2001)
    In the tradition of spoofing and fad boybands, 2gether gained popularity first as a television movie, then as a TV series. Here we meet the heartthrob, Jerry O'Keefe, who is found on a street by a old time veteran record producer, Bob Buss. Bob is sure Jerry will be able to make it big. However, the record labels aren't seeking out solo acts; they want boy bands. So Bob and Jerry set out to find other singers to create a band. On the road, they run into the Linus brothers: Chad, the shy one, and his much older brother Doug. Bob originally wants Chad, but with a little persuasion, he also gets Doug. So they got The Heartthrob, The Shy One, The Older Brother; What's left? They eventually meet The Poser/The Bad Boy (Mickey Parke) and The Cute One (Jason "Q.T." McKnight). Q.T. also has a terminal illness--another good thing for the girls to love. Bob is sure the group is complete, except for one thing: hey don't have a name. After rethinking "Matchbox 30", they settle with the name: 2GE+HER. So our story begins, as they try to make it big in the music business, as they run into sorts of crazy and fun mishaps like: "What if a band member lost control of his temper?" "What if one person decides to try a solo career?" "What if two of the band members were up for the same award?" "What if a band member is gay?" "What if the band starts to lose it's popularity?"

    Showtime (ended 2004)
    The Chris Isaak Show takes an irreverent look at the sexy, outrageous backstage world of rock music. Featuring Chris, his real life band members and an ensemble of oddball characters, the stories offer a fanciful mix of fact and fiction and follow Chris on the road, into the studio and even onto his surfboard as he tries to live an ordinary life - in spite of - his chosen profession.

    Season Three episodes of The Chris Isaak Show air on Canada's MuchMoreMusic. Check their schedule at: www.muchmoremusic.com/ChrisIsaak/.

    Australia's The Comedy Channel has aired episodes in the past. Check their schedule at: http://www.thecomedychannel.com.au/whatsOn/7days.aspx.

    Series Notes:

    There are a lot of quirky bits and dabs in the series that some fans of the show may not necessarily connect with Chris, personally. For example, Chris really does drink Tang, he really does surf, and he really does drive a 1964 Chevy Nova. (It's not red and it's not a convertible, but his own car is very similar to what he drives on the show.) Additionally, his home is in San Francisco, it is modest, and, by his own admission, it's furnished with thrift store bargains. Sharp-eyed viewers will also notice that Chris will occasionally wear multiple tiepins on his neckties, something he was known for doing in the late 1980's and early 1990's, though in those days, he frequently wore them on his jacket lapels. The message on his white Gibson electric guitar "I [heart] Carole L." refers to his first girlfriend, Carole Lowe, who died of cancer in late 1999 or early 2000. (Please follow the link to the Baja Beach Club to read the Sacramento Bee article about Carole and her special message in the Files folder.)

    The character of Mona was also based on a real woman at the real Bimbo's 365 Club in San Francisco, though in actual fact, she's known as "Dolphina." In the 1930's, several different acts played the venue, and one of them was a magician. He had rigged up a series of mirrors that would project an image of anyone who was lying on a rotating table in the basement up into the fish tank located behind the bar. People would come from all over the world to see "the mermaid in the fishbowl" there. As it's a very well known feature (even to this day) at Bimbo's, the writers (and more than likely, Chris himself,) decided that she should be incorporated into the show. So, the character of "Mona," was born. Her purpose is to keep Chris grounded in the wacky world of rock stardom that he lives in. She's his "conscious," his advisor, his therapist, and the one friend he has on the show who has nothing to do with his profession.

    On an interesting note... Chris, himself, has taken a turn on the table in the real Bimbo's. Back in the mid-1990's, he donned a pair of swim trunks, jumped on the spinning table, and went for a "virtual swim" in the fishbowl.



    Season One Notes:

    A considerable amount of time in season one was spent experimenting with relationships between the various characters as the writers tried to figure out where non-band characters might fit with the pre-established unit that is Chris Isaak and Silvertone. Early on, and all throughout season one, the Chris and Yola connection was obvious, and a clear fan favorite. Though the writers were careful never to cross that personal/professional line with the pair, they established a strong sense of mutual respect and playfulness between them that was irresistible to watch. Additionally, Anson seemed to rely on Chris' counsel more often in the earlier episodes, and would frequently be seen alone with Chris at his home, discussing life's various challenges. After episode #12 "Smackdown" however, the Kenney and Anson chemistry began to evolve, and it hit its stride with episode #15 "Storytime." Kenney was something of an older, wiser version of Anson, and that pseudo father/son relationship gradually began to usurp the mentor/pupil relationship that had been established earlier between Chris and Anson. Anson still relied on Chris throughout the series for words of wisdom, so that relationship never ended, but Anson and Kenney connected on a very different level. Fans seemed to really enjoy this shift, and there's no doubt that some of the best moments in season two capitalized on the rather unique relationship between Kenney and Anson.

    Per the Northern California Movies Website at: www.norcalmovies.com/TheChrisIsaakShow/:

    Chris Isaak and Silvertone performed at The Fillmore Theater (1805 Geary Boulevard) in San Francisco on July 12, 2000 in order to obtain actual live concert footage to use in many of the first season episodes. Wherever possible, I've noted where that footage was used throughout the Season One guide. Some of that Fillmore concert was used for Bimbo's concert footage, as well as for many of the tour stops the band made in episode #9, "Tomorrowland."

    Additionally, the establishing exterior shots of Bimbo's 365 Club are actual shots of the real club at 1025 Columbus Avenue in San Francisco. All the interior scenes at Bimbo's were filmed on the Vancouver set.

    This Fillmore footage was only used for Season One episodes.



    Season Two Notes:

    Where season one established the Chris/Yola connection, season two took a decidedly different direction where the couple was concerned. The writers, almost purposefully, chose "not to go there," with the romance, and opted instead to pair them both up with partners who could offer interesting script challenges. While some fans found that distressing, I, personally thought it was a good decision. Believable sexual and romantic tension is difficult to achieve in episodic Television, and when it's there (seemingly effortlessly) between two very likable characters, it's really best just to leave it alone and let it work its magic. There would have been nowhere else to go once Chris and Yola got together, so keeping them apart throughout season two was the right thing to do.

    In addition to this shift, the writers also made a few other modifications to the behavior of some characters and the interactions that many of them had with one another. For example, in the first season, Yola was written as a somewhat stereotypical manager; the micromanagement, the image and style consciousness themes, and the ubiquitous bottle of Pepto Bismol in her purse all contributed to the "neurotic manager" model that could have too easily made her a cartoon character. In season two however, Yola was much more confident; her micromanagement and image issues were minimized substantially, while the "on the threshold of an ulcer" tact was eliminated completely. Yola struggled more in season two with easily identifiable "human" issues (dating, conflicts with her mother, parenting issues) than she did in season one, and I think that made her more "real" to fans.

    The writers also experimented with a Yola/Cody relationship that transcended the sexual encounters the pair shared in season one. Though many fans missed the Yola/Chris relationship, many others (myself included,) found the new Yola/Cody relationship too intriguing to ignore. Both characters grew a great deal in season two, and it was an evolution that they really only could have made together.

    Roly, as well, seemed to have finally found a niche as a philosopher, a scholar, or a voice of reason for the other characters, often bearing a calm and thoughtful style (frequently humorous,) that served as an interesting contrast to Kenney's smart-ass, somewhat self-absorbed manner. Hershel's kinder, gentler nature was enhanced in season two, and he became surprisingly adept at finding a way to say a lot without uttering a word - conveying much of what he had to say through body language and facial expressions – tough to do when you wear glasses… As for Anson? He was just MORE Anson in season two… (As Chris said in season one's episode 5, "You're ten pounds of Anson in a five-pound sack.")

    Perhaps the biggest change in season two had to do with the character of Vivian, whose exit from the show was not addressed. Chris simply no longer had anyone to look after his rather extensive costume collection. Though clearly a supporting character, Vivian was a wonderful female foil to Yola and her neurotic behavior. Viv was very much the "anti-Yola," with her calm, levelheaded demeanor and New Age style. Her departure created a larger void for fans than the producers likely anticipated.moreless

    Growing Pains

    ABC (ended 1992)
    Growing Pains was sitcom originally aired on ABC from September 1985 to April 1992. It went through seven very succesful seasons with a total of 166 episodes, each special in its own way. Growing Pains was about a family of five, the Seavers, who lived on Long Island, New York. Jason Seaver was the father, a psychiatrist, who had his practice at home. (From the 1st to the 5th season) Maggie, his wife, was a journalist who worked for the Long Island newspaper in the first three seasons of the sitcom. She got a job as the news anchor for channel 19 news and worked there through the middle of the 5th season when she decided to stay at home. Jason moved his practice out of the house to an office. During the last seasons, she worked at home writing a consumer awareness column for the local newspaper.

    Together, Maggie and Jason raised four children. They often worried about "who would stay home with the baby" or would "be there for the kids" and the responsibility was often juggled, even fought over, between the two parents but eventually settled. The youngest, Chrissy, wasn't born until the 4th season and suddenly "grew up" from being a toddler to a five year old between the 5th and 6th seasons. The oldest of the four children was Mike. A dare-devil yet charming, Mike helped Growing Pains ratings shoot sky high and quickly became the 80's pin up boy appearing on cover after cover of teen magazines.

    During the 4th season, Mike moved out of the house but not too far...to the loft above the garage. The 2nd oldest was Carol. Carol was the complete opposite of Mike. She was a straight "A" student, (a "nerd" according to her brothers), struggling with social obstacles at school, just like most teenage girls. From wanting a nose job, to dealing with the death of her boyfriend, (Sandy, played by Matthew Perry) to tolerating her roommate at Columbia University, Carol added a lot of comedy as well as a serious side to the show. Next was little Ben. Ben was a clever "con-artist" in the beginning and a little more naive during his teen years, sometimes being his brother's sidekick and other times his worst nightmare.

    And of course, Mr. Leonardo DiCaprio-- then only 16 years old-- joined the cast during the final season when the show felt their ratings were dropping. The Seavers, reluctantly at first, took in a homeless boy, Luke Brower. Luke was one of Mike's students at the Community Health Clinic and quickly became one of the Seavers. Luke left with his father, George, during the end of the final season to help him open up a truck stop in Tuscon. The sitcom ended before Luke ever came back; Maggie got a job in Washington D.C. which required the family to move. In the last episode, the Seaver family gathered around a picnic blanket on the floor of their empty living room, remembering all their pastimes.

    ABC (ended 1983)
    Laverne and Shirley debuted as a mid-season replacement in January of 1976 and was an instant hit ranking number three in the Nielsen ratings for the 1975-1976 season.

    On Happy Days, Laverne De Fazio and Shirley Feeney were two girls who were love interests for Richie Cunningham and Fonzie. Their occasional appearances led to their own series which takes place in the same city as Happy Days: Milwaukee, Wisconsin, during the 1950s and 1960s.

    Laverne and Shirley are lower-society girls who share an apartment and work together at the Shotz Brewery as bottlecappers. Laverne and Shirley are very different people. Laverne is feisty, quick-tempered, and man-hungry while Shirley is more naive and trusting and quite inexperienced when it comes to romance.

    Others in the cast includ Laverne's gruff father, Frank De Fazio, who runs the Pizza Bowl where Laverne and Shirley work on occasion. Edna Babish is the girls' landlady who later marries Frank. Carmine "The Bag Ragu" Ragusa is a singer/dancer who has an on-again, off-again romance with Shirley. The other two main characters of the series are the male counterparts of Laverne and Shirley. Lenny Kosnowski and Andrew "Squiggy" Squiggman live upstairs in the same apartment building as Laverne and Shirley and, also, work at the brewery. They constantly enter the girls' apartment with an annoying "hello."

    In 1980, the series changed scenery. The girls want something new so they decide to move to California. Lenny and Squiggy follow them along with Frank, Edna, and Carmine. The girls want to get into movies while Frank and Edna open a restaurant, Cowboy Bill's. New characters included stuntman and apartment building manager Sonny St. Jacques and neighbor and model Rhonda Lee.

    In 1982, Cindy Williams left the series with her character marrying Walter Meany, a military man who was assigned overseas.

    The CW (ended 2009)
    Motivated by his childhood experiences, Emmy Award-winner/actor/comedian Chris Rock, narrates this very hilarious & touching story of a teenager growing up as the oldest of three children in Brooklyn, New York during the early 1980s. Uprooted to a neighborhood and bused into a primarily white middle school two hours away by his strict, hard-working parents, Chris (played by Tyler James Williams) struggles to find his place, all while keeping his younger brother & sister in line at home and surmounting the tests of junior high school. This dependable, resilient teen brings a unique, comedic spin to his everyday trials & upsets in UPN's new single-camera comedy, "Everybody Hates Chris." The year that Chris turned 13 was 1982. Filled with dreams that being a teenager would be really cool, Chris' entry into adolescence is turning out to be less pleasant. Moved from the projects to the tough "Bed-Stuy" neighborhood of Brooklyn, Chris is still stuck in his big brother role. As the family's "emergency adult," he's accountable for taking care of his younger brother Drew (played by Tequan Richmond), and his younger sister Tonya (played by Imani Hakim) while his parents are working; Drew, although younger, is taller and more confident than Chris, while Tonya is the baby of the family, who gets all of the attention from his parents. Chris' rough, cost-conscious father Julius (played by Terry Crews) works numerous jobs in order to properly support his family. Meanwhile, his very strict, sassy mother Rochelle (played by Tichina Arnold), who works part-time in a small real estate office, runs the household on a very tight budget, while demanding the best for her children. With his mother strong-minded to see him in a good school, Chris reluctantly faces multiple bus transfers each day to attend Corleone Junior High School in the fiercely Italian neighborhood, South Shore. Although being an immediate target for bullies, Chris' innate charm and sharp wit enable him to make new friends at school, such as Greg (played by Vincent Martella), another smart, nice kid...who can't fight, by the way. As Chris Rock pointedly looks back, his younger self is set to find what his family already knows: Chris' sharp, scrappy character is going to take him places. But first, he's going to have to think, talk or run his way through one growing experience after another at both home and school, and on any number of buses along the way. "Everybody Hates Chris" is produced by 3 Art Entertainment and Paramount Studios.moreless

    NBC (ended 2004)
    From DreamWorks animation comes the first primetime CGI-animated series with a feature film quality look to it. Each episode costs $1.6 million and 9 months to make. This CGI-animated series is about a family of white lions who work as performers in the Las Vegas act of illusionists Siegfried & Roy. The show stars Larry, a hard-working white lion in the revue with his wife Kate, a white lioness. Sarmoti, another white lion who is Kate's father - and Larry's father-in-law - clashes with Larry on every subject imaginable. Rounding out the group is Snack, a mischievous gopher and Larry's best friend. It should be noted that the name Sarmoti is actually the acronym S.A.R.M.O.T.I., which stands for Siegfried and Roy: Masters of the Impossible. The show was in jeopardy when in October 2003, Roy Horn was mauled by one of his tigers during a stage show that left Horn in critical condition. Executives at NBC and DreamWorks didn't know whether or not to go on with the show, but as Roy showed signs of improvement, both Siegfried and Roy urged the show to move forward in production. When the show debuted in late August 2004, it got off to a good start with strong ratings. The ratings continued to show good promise for the show through early September 2004, until the ratings started to rapidly decline. The show faced more trouble when it was pulled from November 2004 sweeps, undoubtedly signaling the end was near. In early December 2004, Jeffrey Katzenberg, DreamWorks Animation CEO and show creator, announced that the show was cancelled. A few of the remaining episodes were burned off in late December 2004. The whole series, which consists of one season of episodes and extra features, is now available on DVD for the public to buy.
