    ABC (ended 1995)
    Loving, a soap opera created by Agnes Nixon & Douglas Marland in 1983, aired for 12 long years on ABC, but never was a success on daytime. The show premiered as a TV movie on primetime, and during it's early years, it centered around the blue-collar Donovans and the blue-blood Aldens. The stories revolved around alcoholism, post-traumatic stress syndrome, murders, and all storylines known to the world of soap operas.

    In 1995, ABC no longer wanted to keep Loving on it's schedule. The ratings kept falling. Yet, ABC didn't want to just make it disappear, so they asked the head writers to write a storyline which could allow some of the character to return in a spin-off called "The City." The show's last storyline about a serial murderer was one of the best of the show. The show ended on November 10, 1983 with 3,169 episodes.moreless

    CBS (ended 1991)
    Guns Of Paradise is the sequel series of the 1988-90 television western, Paradise.
    Paradise centered around grizzled gunfighter Ethan Allan Cord, who assumed custody of his late sister's four orphaned children. Ethan's sister, Lucy Cord Carroll, died in St. Louis in the 1890s and her children traveled to the West Coast to live with their uncle in Paradise, California.
    Cord attempted to change his life by becoming a rancher and raising the children in a converted farmhouse he rented from the town banker. The oldest of the children, and only girl, was 13-year-old Claire Carroll, who shared some of Ethan's supervisory duties, especially while he was away. Her brothers were Joseph, 11; Ben, 9; and George, 5.
    Despite attempting to settle down with his new brood, Ethan was often hired on odd jobs which utilized his gunfighting skills. Amelia Lawson, the banker from whom Ethan rented the farmhouse, became his romantic occupation. Ethan's best friend, Native American John Taylor, had a knack for being in the right spot at the right time, usually to help Ethan out of a jam.
    Guns Of Paradise finds Ethan giving up on farming and taking the position of town Marshall, sometimes to the chagrin of the citizens and always a negative to outlaws.moreless

    Three con men are released on parole and recruited by the government to use their skills to take down other criminals. Charlie O'Bannon is a computer hacker, Isaac (Ice) Gregory is a street hustler, and Alphonse Royo is a conman and smooth talker. Under the supervision of FBI agent Christine Kowalski they take on a major criminal with some kind of elaborate scheme. Players ran on NBC at 9:00 PM from 1997 to 1998, but was cancelled due to low ratings, which were due in part to frequent pre-emptions and the occasional timeslot jump. The network gave the timeslot back to the affiliates toward the end of the run, so many areas did not air the final episodes. Since the end of Players, each cast member has shown up in numerous film or television appearances. Creator Dick Wolf later cast Ice-T in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as Detective Fin Tutuola, and prior to that, co-starred with Costas Mandylor in Exiled, the Law & Order movie that focused on former castmember Chris Noth's character Mike Logan.moreless

    As like as two peas in a pod; as different as chalk and cheese. Michael Murray and Jim Nelson are about the same age, grew up together in the same (unnamed) Northern city, are lifelong members of the Labour Party, and presently find themselves suffering inexplicable, extreme stress.

    Michael Murray is a charismatic and successful local politician, newly elected Leader of the City Council, poised to embark on a national career. An unscrupulous political opportunist surrounded by flunkies and yes-men, he has no friends, employs his elder brother Franky as an underpaid chauffeur, and scarcely remembers he has a wife and family at home.

    By contrast, Jim Nelson is rank-and-file, unambitious, high-principled, loyal to his many friends in the community, devoted to his job and to his wife and children.

    Michael is haunted by his past: by his humble birth, by the charismatic Union-leader father he never knew, by his classmates at school (and one sadistic little girl in particular), and most of all by the headmaster he blames for branding him a "loony" and sending him to a school for emotionally disturbed children.

    Jim is proud of his working-class roots, is nostalgic for the past, and… is headmaster of a school for emotionally disturbed children.

    Both believe they are being driven insane: Michael by a conspiracy he thinks he can unmask; Jim by something vague but terrible, inexorable, deadly, and having to do with bridges.

    Political agitators begin to drift into the area, led by the extreme-Left political theorist Mervyn Sloan and his two action men, Lou Barnes and Peter Grenville. When they convince Michael to call a Day of Action, the entire city comes to a standstill. Except for one small and insignificant site inadvertently overlooked by Murray's pickets: the school where Jim Nelson teaches.moreless

To create a common background for the separate stories, they are set in the futuristic city of Betaville (a nod to Jean-Luc Goddard's classic science fiction movie Alphaville). Each episode is introduced by a host character called Paradox.

    Betaville is an utopian city where crime, violence, disease and other problems of society no longer exist. But all this has a dark side: virtual reality is taking over real life, people are struggling to keep control over their near-perfect machines and their own humanity.moreless

    Welcome to the Wasteland guide at TV.com. "A Cocktail of "Friends", "Ally McBeal", and "Sex and the City."- Vanity Fair What is it that you really want out of life? Life has no master plan. Six twentysomething friends who went to college together are now living in New York trying to find themselves, through out the good and bad times. From Kevin Williamson, the creator of Scream and "Dawson's Creek" comes a new drama that defines the new age of your coming of age. One would say it is better than Dawson's Creek, because they are the right age to know what they are talking about. Just add a little dash of technology age around 1999, and "Wasteland" gives you one of the enjoyable/ 'guilty pleasure' shows of the 1999-2000 season. The series was also know as "wasteLAnd", which was suppose to feature them in L.A. (hence the title), but they ditched the idea of them in L.A., and made it New York City. READ THE GUIDE WITH CAUTION! Just to let you know that I think some of the notes might be offensive to people, so read with caution! I added notes from what I heard and what I read everywhere around 1999-2001 about the show. Wasteland went on hiatus, where it was suppose to return on December 1999, but was pulled off the schedule and cancelled. Come 2001, It was picked up by ShowNext, a subdivision of Showtime Networks. It ran COMMERCIAL FREE, regularly on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. For a year durning it's run, ShowNext aired ALL episodes 5 times straight (see broadcast history below), before Shownext put it off their schedule. Opening Theme Song:

Some interesting of Trivia about Wasteland (and "Mulholland Dr." the TV Pilot rejected by ABC and now a feature movie): "Wasteland" took on the 9 PM time slot of Thursday Nights on ABC. ABC Execs. choose "Wasteland" over David Lynch's "Mulholland Dr.", which was suppose to be his big return to TV, which he vows never to do again. Justin Theroux one of the stars of "Mulholland Dr." was originally suppose to be in "Wasteland" decided to go with "Mulholland Dr.". "Mulholland Dr." was supposed to go up against NBC's "Friends" (8 PM Time Slot), but ABC wanted a stupid twentysomething "Friends" clone show that America would "like." Other twentylike shows durning the 1999-2000 season was WB'S "D.C.", "Jack and Jill", NBC's "Cold Feet", and FOX's "Time of Your Life". "The motto of ABC that year was that they were going to go 'young.' They gave us these wonderful shows like Wasteland with Rebecca Gayheart and things like that. That was what they wanted – they had a whole spate of shows that were "dramedies," as they were calling them, about kids with their heads up their asses." - Justin Theroux, one of the stars of "Mulholland Dr.".
