    Joe Rorchek was a 30-year veteran of the Los Angeles City Fire Department who specialized in arson investigations. His sons were also firemen - Ted on the ground and Chris from the air, as a helicopter pilot. Other cast members included: Haley, a young woman trying to prove herself as the city's first female "smoke eater," and Danny, a homeless 13-year-old boy adopted by the Rorcheks. Of course, he joined the Fire Department's Explorer Program so he could fight fires as well. Along with lessons in fire safety, the audience saw examples of the work of rescue operations, paramedics and even scuba diving for underwater fire protection - a danger most people didn't even know existed!moreless

    (ended 1990)
    Dragnet (1989) was a syndicated revival of the classic Dragnet (1951) and Dragnet (1967) series, which were based on the 1949 radio drama, all of which starred Jack Webb as LAPD detective Joe Friday. Webb died in 1982, however, and this revival decided not to re-cast his famous character. Instead, the 1989-1990 series, also known as Dragnet: The '90s or The New Dragnet, starred two younger detectives, but kept to the original formula of voice-over narration and sticking to "just the facts". Though 52 half-hour episodes were made, this series has generally faded from public memory, likely due to the lack of Joe Friday's distinctive character and also to the success of shows like Cops and police dramas such as Hill Street Blues and NYPD Blue. This series had no relation to the 1987 comedic film Dragnet which starred Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks. The series was filmed at Universal City Studios in Universal City, California with the support of the Los Angeles Police Department's Chief Daryl Gates and Commander Bill Booth. NOTE: IMDB shows a release date for the series as October 4, 1989, and lists, for example, the episode "The Payback" as airing on October 11, 1989. However, copyright registration records list the earliest publication date as October 24, 1989. This guide uses publication dates from the United States Copyright Office.moreless

    Wish Me Luck was a British television drama about the adventures of female secret agents during World War II who worked for a group code named 'The Outfit.' This group was based off of the real life Special Operations Executive group of WWII. It aired from 1987 to 1990 on the ITV Network, lasting three seasons. The show was created by Lavinia Warner and Jill Hyem and was made by London Weekend Television. It was filmed on location in France and England. It dealt with its character seriously, showing strong female characters who dealt with extreme conditions during wartime. The first season was directed by Gordon Flemying. The second and third seasons were directed by Bill Hays. The first two seasons revolved mainly around the missions of SOE agent Nancy Wake. Keeping with the realistic tone of the series, much of this character's dialogue was taken from the real Nancy Wake's autobiography 'The White Mouse.'moreless

    E-Street follows the lives, loves, losses & triumphs of the various citizens of the fictional suburb of Westside of Sydney, Australia. At first the show was predictable and boring, standard fare by Channel 10 to compete with Home & Away but Channel 10 had faith and, in a bid to increase ratings, killed off perennial favorite, Sarah McKillop in a shock murder. Soon After, the Soap regained viewers by serialising the drama. Then with the arrival of Sonny Bennett in 1990 began a 3 Year High for the Australian Production, helping to encourage Young Talent (Toni Pearan & Melissa Bell to name just a couple) and really introducing the term "Plot Twist" to Australian Dramas (Werewolves and 3 Main Characters Being Blown Up In Their Car). So Sit back (Maybe not at 4am in the morning!) and relax with the Highs & Lows, Highlights & Tragedies, Comings & Goings of E-Street!moreless

    Welcome to the Van der Valk guide at TV.com. In his time with the Amsterdam Police, Commissaris Piet van der Valk has seen it all. His cynicism sometimes shocks even his assistant Johnny Kroon. Their caseload brings them into contact with the city's many subcultures from drug-users to sexual perverts. Van der Valk is known for his ability to break difficult cases by pursuing his famous hunches. However, his superior, Hoofdcommissaris Samson, is always more concerned with the political and public relations ramifications of van der Valk's investigations. The city meanwhile provides an attractive backdrop for the stories. The character of van der Valk was created by the author Nicolas Freeling in a popular series of novels, though none of the storylines in the televison series are directly based on the books. Van der Valk initially ran for two series, but was resurrected in 1977 by Thames Television's Euston Films subsidiary, shooting on location using 16mm colour film. A second revival followed in 1991. The theme tune, Eye Level, was very popular when the show was first broadcast, spending several weeks in the British music charts.moreless

    MTV - Music Television (ended 1996)
    House of Style was MTV's groundbreaking catch-all infotainment series on fashion, designers, models, shopping, personal style and the arts. Hosted by world famous model-personality Cindy Crawford, there were no closed doors in regards to fashion shows, movie sets, and access to celebrities, designers and artists. While the show was shot in a casual, hand-held style and edited in a breath-taking manner of cuts, the show approached models, fashion and fashion with level-headed seriousness. Information was presented in a matter-of-fact style; guests were treated with reverence and models, designers and everyone featured were presented and treated as leading artists of our society. Each show was unique from the each other - there were no set studio or stock opening. There was a brief introduction of the episode - taking place indoors or out - from the mundane to the spectacular. The show's content/segments were also random and varied in length and breadth from episode to episode. They covered the full gamut of all fashion - from personal style how-to to the history of Vogue magazine to a designer runway show to every topic in between. When Cindy Crawford was host, there were also many episodes and segments devoted to her life and business ventures from the making of her workout video to her cover photo shoots. Todd Oldham was a frequent how-to contributor when Cindy was the host - his segments usually involved re-purposing an old item (furniture, clothes, etc) into something new & different. There was also a regular feature on shopping with a celebrity. The series started out as a quarterly covering the seasonal fashion changes then increasing in frequency to almost monthly basis until Cindy Crawford left. The series was not as successful with the other hosts and decreased in frequency. The series has not been officially canceled and presumably will return again. There are also many "recap" episodes with segments re-purposed/ edited or re-edited from other episodes - sometimes with new introductions, sometimes without - so it's difficult to keep track of every episode with any accuracy.moreless

    Leg Work was one delightful show that was on CBS back in 1987. Unfortunatly for that tv season it was the first casuality of the year being cancelled after just six airings. LEG WORK had one of the most interesting opening sequences for a television series. All three lead actors in the series were listed in the opening credits as starring. The way that it was done Margaret Colin was the first star of this show as the series revolved around her role of Claire McCarron a hot shot sexy female dectetive. Clare had lots of contacts in the series like her brother Lt. Fred McCarron of the New York Police Department who was played by Patrick James Clark and Clare's best friend was Willie Pipal a chief prosecutor for the New York City Court who was played by Frances McDormand. Francis has went on to bigger and better things since LEG WORK went off the air, she has been twice nominated for an Academy Award and winning one for her role in Fargo in 1997. Margaret has done several films since and a few other television series such as the critically acclaimed Now And Again for CBS. LEG WORK only completed 10 episodes of production. CBS only aired 6 of them however TV Land has over the years aired the remaining unaired episodes a few times.moreless
