    ABC (ended 1999)
    This is the story of a man who claims to be Cupid sent to Earth as a punishment. To earn his place back on Mount Olympus, he must reunite a hundred couples without the use of magic. He has been stripped of his powers and has become a normal human being for the length of his stay among us. Because of his claims, Trevor is thought to be delusional and placed under psychology study. He must attend Claire's therapy groups on a regular basis, where he usually likes to interfere and contradict her. Although the show is based on a fantasy premise, it is mostly an excuse. There has been no proof so far that Trevor really is Cupid and for all we know, he really could be just another nutcase. Yet, his ability to bring couples together, his great knowledge of Greek mythology and many other elements can only make one wonder.moreless

    "My name is Thomas Veil, or at least it was. I'm a photographer, I had it all: a wife, Alyson, friends, a career. And in one moment it was all taken away, all because of a single photograph. I have it; They want it; and they will do anything to get the negative. I'm keeping this diary as proof that these events are real. I know they are. They have to be." On August 28, 1995, Thomas Veil, a professional photographer, has his identity suddenly erased by a mysterious conspiracy. Nobody recognizes him, including his own wife. His studio is empty, his art show at a gallery has vanished. His entire past ceased to exist in a moment. People are chasing him, but he doesn't know why, except that it has something to do with "Hidden Agenda", a picture of a brutal execution he took a year earlier, now missing from his studio. He has the negative, "they" want it, and the hunt is on. Tom Veil is on the run, trying to find out the truth of what happened to him while at the same time evading his unknown pursuers.moreless

    NBC (ended 1991)
    In 1966, the gothic soap opera Dark Shadows premiered on ABC and ran for 5 years, making exactly 1,225 episodes. Today, it is known as one of the most popular cult classics of all time. In 1991, Dan Curtis remade the show as a weekly prime-time drama. NBC bought the series and aired it mid-season 1991. The series wasn't up to NBC's standards in ratings, so the network cancelled the show after only twelve one-hour episodes.

    Dark Shadows: The Revival Series remade most of the beginning storylines and the episodes that transported Victoria Winters back to 1790 (in the original series, Victoria went back to 1795). The series starts with the resurrection of Barnabas Collins, who was released from his coffin by Willie Loomis, the bumbling caretaker on a quest for legendary family riches. Dr. Julia Hoffman attempts to cure his vampirism, and release him from the curse that Angelique Bouchard put on him two hundred years earlier. Later on, Victoria is transported to 1790 during a séance in which the Collins family was trying to contact Barnabas' sister, Sarah, who died in 1790. Trapped in the past, Victoria becomes the governess of Sarah and Daniel Collins, and the governess who was hired to tutor the children, Phyllis Wick, has taken Victoria's place in 1991. Victoria stays in 1790 for a while, and many people accuse her of being a witch for knowledge of the future and many other things. She is put on trial and Peter Bradford (her first friend in 1790 Collinsport) tries to save her from being hanged.moreless

    DR1 (ended 1997)
    Originally created for Danish television as Riget, Morten Arnfred and Lars von Trier's supernatural thriller The Kingdom chronicles the bizarre occurrences at the title hospital, the largest and most respected hospital in the country. While the series deals with such real-life complications as murder investigations and malpractice suits, a more villainous force may be unleashing itself upon the hospital staff. After a patient (Kirsten Rolffes) sees the ghost of a young girl, many of the staff members find themselves involved in frightening and bizarre situations like an ambulance that appears every evening but then instantly vanishes. Eventually, a female doctor (Birgitte Raaberg) becomes pregnant, but the accelerated development of her fetus could be a sign that the evil forces have found a way to enter more permanently into the world.moreless

    Welcome to the Ultraviolet guide at TV.com. Ultraviolet charted the exploits of an investigative government unit, armed with the latest weaponry, whose aim is to track down and exterminate Code 5 infected subjects while attempting to work out their agenda. A policeman, Michael Colefield, is reluctantly drawn into the group after a confrontation with his 'turned' former best friend, Jack Beresford, when Michael, defending himself after being bitten, is forced to 'kill' Jack. Stylish, dark and often humourous, Ultraviolet delivered a blend of vampire myth with a modern slant. It is notable that the programme never once mentions the word vampire, instead referring to the antagonists as 'leeches' or a 'code 5 infection'. A pilot for a potential US series was made, a composite of all that was good in the 6 episodes of the British version, but no series was commissioned.moreless

    Showtime (ended 2001)
    Tales of the City (and it's sequels) follow the soap-operaish lives of the people living in 1970's and 1980's San Francisco, and are based on Armistead Maupin's novels. The show centers around Anna Madrigal, the eccentric landlady at 28 Barbary Lane (who welcomes her tenants by taping homegrown joints above their doors), her tenants and the others implicated in their lives. Tenants include Mary Ann Singleton, a naive midwesterner who moves to California to start a new life; Mona Ramsey, a **** who is unknowingly Mrs. Madrigal's daughter; Michael "Mouse" Tolliver, a gay Floridan who moved to California to avoid letting his parents find out he was gay and Brian Hawkins, a horny straight guy trapped in a gay city... People involved in their lives are Beachamp Day, Mary Ann's boss, and his wife DeDe; Edgar Halcyon, Anna's boyfriend, and his wife, Frannie who are DeDe's parents; Dr. Jon Fielding, the on-again-off-again boyfriend of Michael's; Mother Mucka, a whorehouse madame who is mother to Mrs. Madrigal; and Connie Bradshaw, a school friend of Mary Ann's; among others. The show was originally produced for Britain's Channel 4 & USA's PBS. When PBS aired it in 1994, it broke their ratings records, and in 1998, Showtime and Channel 4 produced the follow-up, More Tales of the City. The latest series, Further Tales of the City aired on Showtime in May 2001 -- but was not aired in the UK. The other 3 "Tales" novels, Babycakes, Significant Others, and Sure of You, have not been adapted for TV as of yet (Just for the record, "Babycakes" is not in any way related to the film that starred Ricki Lake). According to Maupin's official site, a script for "Babycakes" is being developed as a two-hour telefilm -- though it's still in the developmental stage at this point. There's been speculation about the departure of three of the leads from the original series, which was cleared up on Armistead Maupin's official site... Chloe Webb (Mona) asked for more money than they were offering, Paul Gross (Brian) was filming the TV series "Due South," and was therefore unavailable. Marcus D'Amico expressed "ambivalence" about reprising his role as Michael, so they recast the part. If anybody has any information they would like to contribute to this guide, please feel free to! If you know of the European airdates, they would be greatly appreciated. Although many of the actors were credited as "stars," many only appeared in an episode or two, so I've tried to track down which episodes and list them as "guest stars."moreless

    Welcome to the Snoops guide at TV.com Savvy and seductive private detective Glenn Hall (Gina Gershon) doesn't let the Bill of Rights bog her down. Investigators working for her agency must be willing to treat the Constitution as nothing more than a flashing yellow light on the road to truth, justice or a big retainer. Manny Lott (Danny Nucci) is a whiz with a mini-cam and a mini-mic and loves a woman in a mini-skirt. But he also carries a mini-tranquilizer gun and will likely shoot you if you annoy him. Roberta Young (Paula Jai Parker) is prone to brazen deeds like stealing a deadbeat dad's toupee and holding it in "escrow" until dad forks over the child support. Glenn's newest recruit is former police detective Dana Plant (Paula Marshall). By-the-book and straightforward in approach, Dana seems an odd choice, like water to Glenn's oil. But Dana's conservative nature belies her brilliance as a sleuth, and Glenn can tell that Dana is secretly thrilled with the opportunity to "color outside the lines" for the first time in her life. Conflicts and quirks aside, the private dicks of Glenn Hall, Inc. will make sure that no one gets away with murder in the city of angels. David E. Kelley, the Emmy, Peabody and Golden Globe Award-winning creator and executive producer of "The Practice," "Ally McBeal," "Chicago Hope" and "Picket Fences," takes a fun look at a sexy ensemble of unconventional private investigators in Los Angeles.moreless
