    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

Wonder of wonders, the two hail from the same star-fated city of Los Angeles, but will their individual complications stand in the way of blissful reunion back stateside?

    ABC (ended 1989)
    Dynasty was a larger than life soaps opera that purported to portray the lives of the wealthy rich while embracing the greed, glamour and excesses of the Reagan-era 1980s. The story set in Denver, Colorado, centered around the wealthy but troubled Carrington family, headed by the powerful oil tycoon Blake Carrington (John Forsythe). In the premiere episode, Blake married his beautiful and sweet secretary Krystle (Linda Evans), much to the chagrin of Blake's spoiled daughter, Fallon (Pamela Sue Martin), and Krystle's ex-lover, Matthew Blaisdel (Bo Hopkins). Blake also had trouble dealing with the fact that his son Steven (Al Corley) was a homosexual and, at the end of the first season, Blake accidentally killed Steven's ex-lover when he found him and Steven in an embrace. In the second season premiere, Blake's world turned upside down. Not only was he on trial for murder, but his scheming ex-wife, Alexis (Joan Collins), re-entered his life to testify against him. After the trial, she ended up staying in Devener only to wreak more havoc against him and his new wife, Krystle. Initially, the show was dismissed as a clone of another primetime soap opera, Dallas, which also centered around a rich powerful family who made their fortune in oil. However, Dynasty distinguished itself from Dallas and the other primetime soap operas of its era by by embracing campy over-the-top storylines over realistic ones and larger-than-life fashions. By the end of the 1984-1985 season, Dynasty became the #1 TV show in the United States, beating out its rival, Dallas, and spinning off a second series, The Colbys (originally titled, Dynasty II: The Colbys). However, in subsequent seasons, ratings began to decline as viewers grew tired of the over-the-top storylines, such as Moldavia, Krystle's look-a-like. After 9 seasons and 218 episodes on ABC, the show was cancelled. Two years later, ABC aired a 4 hour mini-series, Dynasty: The Reunion, to wrap up the loose ends of the series, which ended with an unresolved cliffhanger. After its cancellation, the show was syndicated and eventually aired on SOAPnet, the ABC-owned 24-hour soap opera channel. The show received more interest in the new millenium with the airing of a satirical 2005 TV-movie, Dynasty: The Making of a Guilty Pleasure; a 2006 cast reunion special, Dynasty Reunion: Catfights & Caviar, and of course, the release of the first few seasons on DVD.

Despite all the pain and troubles they go through with their lives, whether it involved their cases or home life, at the end of the day, they relax to the smooth music performed by different artists at Natalie's. Audiences fell in love with the show's plot lines and characters. The episodes had a realistic sense about it that made it one of the top ten shows that aired on FOX. Season 1: In this season, Malik Yoba plays Detective J.C. Williams, a black man who is trying to put in life back in order again after his divorce from his ex wife, Chantal, played by Fatima Faloye.

Detective Nina Moreno, played by Lauren Velez, is a young Puerto Rican who was introduced as Eddie's new partner due to J. C. being in the hospital because of his close encounter with death. As she struggles to be a good cop, she also tries to earn respect from Eddie. As for J.C., he is recovering from his wounds caused by his enemy who also killed Sandy.

For Eddie, he tries to get his friendship back with a distant J.C., he is fighting his feelings for Nina, and helps his father who is dying of AIDS. Season 3: In this season, a new detective joins the crew, a relationship heads to a new road, and death takes its ugly toll on two of the detectives. Jonathan LaPaglia joins the cast as Detective Tommy Macnamara, an Irish cop with a know-it-all attitude and a distinctive personality, which doesn't go well with the team, especially J.C. Unfortunately, he was only able to shine his talents for a short while do to his murder. Eddie and Nina goes through many obstacles in their relationship, especially when Nina is trying to recover from a gun shot wound she got last season. Eddie is determined to make it last and asks Nina to marry him; which she accepts. However, in order to make that happen, Nina must divorce her first husband. Nina is also going through the process of trying to get her daughter, whom she gave up for adoption, back into her life. While dealing with that, for a while she starts to question her future as a cop. While Eddie is learning of these new secrets about Nina, he deals with his father's death (or suicide), and unfortunately meets an untimely death. As for Lt. Cooper, she starts an elicit affair with a captain and goes through a rocky separation from her husband and family. Season 4: In this season, two detectives deal with the lose of a friend and a husband, and is assigned to work under a new team. J. C. and Nina are assigned to work under Lt. Malcolm Baker, played by Thomas Mikal Ford, and with their new partners, Detective Alec Stone, played by Josh Hopkins, and Detective Nell Delaney, played by Marisa Ryan. J.C. is coping with Eddie's death and is trying to help his son, "G", grow up to be a man. Nina is trying to survive being a widow and concentrating on being a good detective. As time passes, the two start to form an attraction for each other, which leads to something they both never thought possible. Detective Alec Stone is cocky cop who does what he can to get the job done. Detective Nell Delaney is a tough cop whose smart comments and intelligence keeps her ahead in the game. Finally, we meet Lt. Malcolm Barker, a ferocious cop who knows what he's doing and doesn't let anyone stop him in the actions he makes. Due to the Season's 3 shocker of Eddie's and Tommy's death and the departure of Lt. Cooper, the fans started to lose interest in the show. Ratings slowly started to go down and the show didn't last beyond the 4th season. Still, to this day, the show remains to be one the best show that will be missed.moreless

    "Inspectors eight-one, responding." This 70's crime drama was one of many Quinn Martin Production shows, a roster which included Cannon, The FBI, The Fugitive and Barnaby Jones. It was filmed entirely on location in San Francisco.

    The show first aired on September 16, 1972 in a time slot of Saturday at 9 p.m., playing against two popular half-hour shows, Mary Tyler Moore and Bob Newhart. Due to the success of its first season, it moved into a more prominent spot -- Thursdays at 10, and later, Thursdays at 9, showing in the same time slot as Kojak, Ironside, and Barnaby Jones.

    The Streets of San Francisco starred Karl Malden as veteran detective Mike Stone and Michael Douglas as Steve Keller, a rookie detective who is college- educated in a workingman's SFPD.

    The show ran for a total of five seasons. After the second episode of the 1976-77 season, Michael Douglas left the show; writers explained that Steve Keller was going to pursue a teaching career. The insufferably pretty Richard Hatch was chosen to play the ingenue-detective role, but the show foundered and lasted for only another season, airing for the last time on June 23, 1977.moreless

When things really get screwed up, I'm the guinea pig they send back to take care of it. The catch is, I can only go back 7 days. 7 Days chronicles the adventures of Frank Parker, a "chrononaut" assigned to the U.S. government's "Operation Backstep." The operation revolves around the Sphere, created by Dr.'s Mentnor, Vukavitch, and Ballard from alien technology salvaged from Roswell. The alien power source allows a jump of only seven days, so when a crisis occurs the government assigns NSA agent Frank Parker to jump back in time up to 7 days to prevent it, creating a new timeline where only Frank remembers the old one. Frank is uniquely qualified for the job - he has a high tolerance for pain (required during piloting), a photographic memory, and has had some psychiatric problems that give him a very...flexible mindset when dealing with altered timelines. Assisting him on his missions are project head Bradley Talmadge, head of security Nathan Ramsey, and military advisor and back-up chrononaut Craig Donovan.
