    Meet Andy French, a 24-year-old captivatingly lazy guy. Together with his nerdy teenage brother Kevin, he lives in a big city loft. However, these two new roommates couldn't be more polar opposite: Andy can never seem to settle on a particular job or girlfriend, while Kevin never gets anything lower than an A in school nor does he get a girlfriend. "The show takes place in the fictional city of Cosmopolis's equally fictional neighborhood of Mission Hill". It's a diverse place with interesting people living in it. Fellow roommates include Posey Tyler, the capricious girl who hides a secret dark side, and Andy's mellow best friend Jim Kuback who's well-connected to the hip downtown scene and has a luxurious job. Across the hall are Natalie, Carlos and their baby. Carlos is a painter, while Natalie is a professor. Next door are Gus and Wally, a gay couple in their 60s. Picked up in the fall of 1997 by the head of programming at the time Garth Ancier, Mission Hill didn't hit the air until long after he left the network. While that in itself is usually enough to kill a new series, achieving a two share on just its second outing certainly helped finish it off. One wonders what the WB was expecting after slotting it so awkwardly (first a "sneak preview" on Tuesday, then, two weeks later, a time period debut on Friday), but both Ancier's successor, Susanne Daniels, and Castle Rock agreed that having the series kick off a lineup consisting of The Jamie Foxx Show, The Steve Harvey Show and For Your Love was asking too much of it. So it went on hiatus after just two episodes. The WB claimed that they would bring it back in the spring, but when the time rolled around they didn't feel it was worth bringing back in season, nor did they feel it was worth pairing up with another long-delayed animated show they mishandled, Baby Blues. It came as a shock to the producers when the network called them up and said they had 15 weeks open that summer to burn off the 11 leftover episodes. Mission Hill was no longer asked to kick off a lineup consisting of The Jamie Foxx Show, The Steve Harvey Show and For Your Love. Now, it was asked to have a lineup consisting of The Jamie Foxx Show, The Steve Harvey Show and For Your Love kick off it. Four weeks of that and the WB kicked Mission Hill off the lineup once again. Finally in 2001, Cartoon Network bought the rights to the series, and aired it in order and in its entirety from May to August in 2002. The series ended up being 13 episodes, which Adult Swim has run on a number of occasions. The scripts were written for episodes 14-18 and 14-16 made it to animatic, but the show got pulled in production. IN addition, 14-16 almost made it to the Mission Hill DVD, but there were further complications.

    "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

    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

    A widely followed TV animation series with fascinating characters, a captivating sci-fi premise, dynamic battle scenes, and a super-high density of information that incorporates Judeo-Christian concepts and psychoanalysis as only a few of the elements that allowed Neon Genesis Evangelion to surpass the realm of all anime that had come before it and made a work worthy of the title "New Century (Neon Genesis)." The show began airing in October 1995 with the planning, original story and production handled by GAINAX, who had previously worked on such shows as Wings of Honneamise and Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water. Hideaki Anno, a representative creator of GAINAX, was at the heart of the production work and his individuality colors every aspect of the show. A manga version by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto began running one month prior to the series premiere and new chapters are still being produced.

    Neon Genesis Evangelion had the ardent support of fans, and its popularity boomed even after it finished its first run in March of 1996. Its influence was not limited to anime fans but also spread to the general populace, and it was even called the third impact, following Space Battleship Yamato and Mobile Suit Gundam. At the height of the Eva boom in 1998, the theatrical Death and Rebirth and The End of Evangelion were released. The theatrical releases were created as a separate version of the climax depicted in the TV series. Four movies retelling the story of Evangelion (without GAINAX) are to follow in the coming years.

    ABC (ended 1994)
    "Sonic the Hedgehog," also known as the SatAM (Saturday morning) series, was the second television program to star the famous video game icon. It followed the slapstick "Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog," which was known mostly for its lighthearted approach. The SatAM, however, took on a much darker tone, telling the story of Sonic and his brave band of Freedom Fighters as they struggled to free their home world, the distant planet of Mobius from the clutches of the evil Dr. Robotnik. The first season was an unconventional mix of cartoon characters and a grim setting. Characters were developed and mature themes were explored. The second season, on the other hand, lightened the tone considerably, emphasizing the more comedic aspects of the show and toning down the series' darkness considerably. The show ultimately ended on a cliffhanger after only two seasons due to underachieving ratings. However, this was not the end of the SatAM. The series developed a cult following over the years resulting in countless fan fiction stories and discussion that kept show alive several years after it had been cancelled. Additionally, the Archie comic book adaptation of the "Sonic" character began to modify itself to more closely resemble the SatAM series and remained in publishing ten years after the show had been cancelled. Furthermore, the SatAM's influence was felt in additional Sonic adventures with various elements of the series being included in the "Sonic Christmas Blast!" special and the "Sonic Underground" series. The SatAM is generally agreed to be the most popular of the American-made "Sonic" cartoons. Characters: Sonic the Hedgehog - An egotistic blue blur of the title with an unsatiable appetite for adventure and chili dogs. Princess Sally Acorn - Daughter of King Acorn, rightful ruler of Mobius; leader of the Knothole Freedom Fighters and Sonic's best friend. Bunnie Rabbot - Cyborg rabbit who was in the process of being roboticized before being rescued by the Freedom Fighters. Antoine D'Coolette - Cowardly royal guard who desperately seeks the affections of Princess Sally. Rotor - The Freedom Fighters' mechanic. Miles "Tails" Prower - Sonic's other best friend...like a little brother; he looks up to Sonic and hopes to make his own contribution to the Freedom Fighters. Dulcy - Powerful but clumsy dragon; joined the Freedom Fighters. Uncle Chuck - Sonic's roboticized Uncle. Dr. Robotnik - Ruler of Mobius; achieved this by overthrowing King Acorn; cyborg villain. Snivley- Robotnik's nephew and lackey. Basic Terms: Great Forest - Vast forest where the Freedom Fighters hide; on the outskirts of Robotropolis. Freedom Fighter - A rebel against Robotnik's rule and not just any rebel, a soldier of the rightful King; different cells are activated when the Acorn King is in dire need; King Acorn kept a list of every Freedom Fighter group. Knothole Village - The village hidden deep within the Great Forest where the Freedom Fighters operate. Mobius - Faraway planet that Sonic and the other animals are from.
