    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

    Fifteen

    Fifteen

    Follow
    Nickelodeon (ended 1993)
    Fifteen follows the lives of High School students and deals with a variety of issues including dating, alcohol abuse, and friends. The series started in Canada, under the name Hillside, on YTV in 1990, but eventually was released, as Fifteen, in the US on Nickelodeon in 1991. Only 65 episodes had been produced until Nick stopped production in 1993. Fifteen was a soap opera for teens, and was Nickelodeon's first attempt at a teen soap opera. The basis of the show was the trials and tribulations of our teenage years, and the plots usually dealt with the struggles to fit in, alcohol, relationships, and school. The show is pretty simple, but overly melodramatic. The characters are all pretty much easy to understand. There was Matt, who was the show's resident athlete. He played basketball, and was an alcoholic. Then there was his girlfriend Ashley. She was sweet and charming, bubbling in innocence. Then she got caught cheating on a test and got sent to another school by her parents. Her stay at the other school lasted just long enough for Matt to ask out another girl, then Ashley returned. Eventually she dumped Matt for the evil (in relative terms) Chris. After that she had multiple boyfriends. Billy was Courtney's younger friend. Billy enjoyed hanging out with Dylan, much to his sister's dismay. When their parents split up, Courtney had been something of a guardian to Billy. Inevitably, Courtney falls for Dylan. Jake never played a huge role. He was always that nice guy who finishes last. Cindy was a minor character at best, and never seen after the first season. I do remember her saying this, however: "This whole school is an ecological disaster area!" Also fodder for season one was Theresa. As dense as she was, she did manage to expose the evil Brooke. Brooke was pure evil. She seemed intent on breaking up Matt and Ashley. She came close but never quite succeeded. In season one she had an understudy named Kelly, who eventually betrayed her and busted her for cheating on a paper.The split didn't help Kelly's fortunes, because she was gone after season one. During season two, Brooke recruited another partner in crime. Well, maybe not recruited. Janice (who got her start in show biz on You Can't Do That On Television. Yaay!) joined her ranks, but she was wholly hated. Then there was the "cool rebel" Dylan who had a rock band. I don't remember buying any releases from them though. The band broke up approximately 632 times, but always seemed to reform. Billy was even drummer for them once. Apparently Dylan was so popular a character that Nick thought a clone of him was in order. Thus we had Chris. Like Dylan, Chris never seemed to do anything extremely bad, be just looked like a loser.moreless

    Julia Sugarbaker (Dixie Carter), Mary Jo Shively (Annie Potts), Charlene Frazier-Stillfield (Jean Smart) and Suzanne Sugarbaker (Delta Burke) are associates at their design firm, Sugarbaker and Associates. Julia Sugarbaker is the owner of Sugarbaker and Associates and is very outspoken and strong-willed. Mary Jo Shively is a divorced single-parent who is just as strong-willed as Julia, but isn't as self-confident. Charlene is the naive and trusting farm girl from Poplar Bluff, Missouri. Suzanne Sugarbaker is the self-centered ex-beauty queen who has a number of wealthy ex-husbands. At the end of Season 5 Delta Burke was fired from the series and Jean Smart left to pursue other goals. Two new characters were introduced: Allison Sugarbaker (Julia Duffy) and Carlene Frazier Dobber (Jan Hooks). Soon, Julia Duffy was taken out of the series and a final cast change brought in Bonnie Jean "B.J." Poteet (Judith Ivey). The series was very successful for CBS, lasting 7 seasons (163 episodes). Reruns from the series continue to air on Lifetime. In 1995, Delta Burke reconciled with the series creators and reprised her role of Suzanne Sugarbaker for the far less successful spin-off Women of the House, which co-starred Teri Garr and Patricia Heaton. Carter, Burke, and Bloodworth-Thomason had all previously worked together on the 1982-83 sitcom Filthy Rich, from which a lot of dialogue in Designing Women was recycled. Nielsen Ratings: (Top 30 or Better) #23 in the 1989- 1990 Season

    Ever wish you could live your last week all over again? Well, my name's Frank B. Parker, and I do it all the time. I work for a secret government project experimenting in time travel. 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. In the third season Ballard retires and his replacement "Hooter" Owsley takes his place as scientific expert and recurring guest star.moreless

Season 5 (Darko and undressedisdabomb, synopses from matthew02) Pushing the tv limits on wearing cock rings, and then showing it! (not his private part of course, but the ring itself) Season 6 (Darko) Most episodes & gay storylines up to date. They filmed in Montreal, Canada. The introduction credits do not follow the typical brown background with the faces of each character; rather, it is more colorful, w/ pictures of bananas and certain hott scenes throughout the series. Undressed also airs in Canada on PrideVision TV. Check local listings for airings in your area. Curious about the ratings? Well on the timewarner site, it said durning July 15, 2002, Undressed (Season 6) took in 2.2 in the ratings. But since it's on cable ratings ranges from .9 - 3.6 (maybe at the most). You can pretty much predict that Undressed averages somewhere between .6 to 2.5 in the ratings per episode. In 2001, they released an original soundtrack which is now out of print.

    ABC (ended 1991)
    When thirtysomething debuted in 1987 it was attacked by some critics as being a self-indulgent examination of the minutiae of yuppie life. Before the first season was over, some of those same critics were covering their tracks by calling it "the most improved show on television." Producers Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz had teamed up before on Family and would go on to create My So-Called Life, Relativity and Once and Again. Often using feature-film techniques, their brand of what could be called "reality" television tackled not only the small subjects, but the big ones too, all the way from life to death, as they followed their characters on the road from the idealism of youth to the search for security and responsibility as they glided toward middle age. And it was even funny sometimes. After its network run came to an end in 1991, thirtysomething became a staple rerun on many other networks.moreless

    Welcome to The Hitchhiker guide at TV.com. A series of mystery-thriller stories, linked only by the character of The Hitchhiker, who would introduce and close each episode in the style of Rod Serling or Alfred Hitchcock. Occasionally stories involved supernatural forces, but most plot twists stemmed only from the dark side of the human spirit. One of the few Canadian shows to come out of HBO, the series re-airs in Canada on the SCREAM network and can occasionally be seen on HBO. There is considerable confusion over how many seasons were in the series, but the creators have released the first and third season on DVD, so the episode guide is arranged accordingly. Originally the Hitchhiker was cast with Nicholas Campbell, but for whatever reason Campbell was replaced with Page Fletcher. Campbell's scenes in the original three episodes were later re-shot with Fletcher which, because the Hitchhiker initially had more interaction with the people in the stories, cause certain scenes to appear very choppy.moreless
