    V.R. Troopers

    Follow
    (ended 1996)
    Saban's VR Troopers was the first official "sister series" to the most popular "action fighting kid show" at the time,Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. Much like it, this was an Americanization of a Japanese special effects children's program by Toei Company LTD. The show focused on three young adults in their late teens, Ryan Steele, Kaitlin Star, and J.B. Reese, living in the West Coast town of Cross World City. They regularly attended and were teachers at "Tao's Dojo", a karate studio (Ryan was the most focused martial artist, J.B. was the computer wizard, while Kaitlin was a photographer/budding reporter for the local newspaper, the Underground Voice Daily). One day, Ryan's search for his long missing father led him and his two friends to a strange laboratory. Inside, a digitized head of Ryan's father's friend, Professor Hart, explaind the truth about his life's work, having developed extremely advanced virtual reality technology in secret. VR is in actuality a dimension existing alongside our own, and within it lie mutants and monsters bent on conquering both worlds. The main ruler of them is a creature known as Grimlord, who, unbeknowst to anyone on Earth, has a human identity as billionaire industrialist Karl Ziktor. As he tries to break down the barriers of the true reality to allow his armies easy passage from virtual world, it's now up to Ryan, Kaitlin, and J.B. to defend the planet from both sides of the dimensional barrier. Luckily, they've got assistance, in the form of armored bodies with incredible firepower. This included eventual additions to their arsneal, such as a Turbo Cycle, Techno Bazooka, and a flying, laser-blasting Skybase! Other regular characters on the show included Jeb, Ryan's hound dog, who, after an accident in Prof. Hart's lab, is now capable of speech (and sounds like Jack Nicholson); Woody Stocker, Kaitlin's wacky hat-loving boss at the Underground Voice Daily; Percy Rooney, Kaitlin's bumbling rival reporter at the paper (and nephew of the mayor); and Tao, the wise martial arts sensei who owns the dojo. Recurring villains include General Ivar, a vicious rocket-shaped monster with his own tank; Colonel Icebot, a cold blooded virtual menace; Decimator, a sword-wielding warrior; the Skugs, gold headed foot soldiers, and more throughout. During the second season, the show changed format very slightly. Ryan's father was finally found, though he wouldn't remain safe for long. With him, came an upgrade to Ryan's V.R. armor. Grimlord switched from working in a dungeon to a massive spacecraft, and added new Generals such as DoomMaster (and his Vixens), Oraclon, and Despera. The Skugs now had the ability to become more powerful in the form of Ultra-Skugs! During the first season, footage of V.R. Ryan came from the 1987 Toei Metal Hero series, "Chou Jinki Metarudaar" (Super Man Machine Metalder). During the second season, V.R. Ryan's new form and villains came from the 1984 Toei series "Uchuu Keiji Shaidaa" (Space Sheriff Shaider. Both seasons. V.R. J.B. and V.R. Kaitlin's footage came from the 1986 Toei Metal Hero series "Jikuu Senshi Supiruban" (Dimension Warrior Spielban). Original footage was more common in the second season than the first. Saban's VR Troopers was a co-production of: Toei Company, LTD. and Cyberprod, Inc. It was originally copyrighted by Saban Entertainment, Inc. and Saban International, N.V., which is now known as BVS Entertainment, Inc (a part of the Walt Disney Company). _The theme song (written by Shuki Levy & Kussa Mahchi):_ Countdown control Four, three, two, one We are, we are VR, We are, we are VR, We are, we are VR, We are, we are VR!

    FOX (ended 1998)
    This guide covers the program known as "Saban's Big Bad Beetleborgs" (in its first season) and "Saban's Beetleborgs Metallix" (in its second and final season). It was the third "companion series" to the Power Rangers franchise, and eventually rose in ratings to point it was number 1 in all key demographics. The show was about three typical pre-teen kids, Drew, Roland, and Jo, living in the city of Charterville, where they tend to hang out as Roland's father's comic book store, Zoom Comics. One day, on a dare, the trio entered the local haunted house (known as Hillhurst Mansion), and encounter a gang of crazy gang, child-hugry monsters! While trying to escape, they bumped into a pipe organ, accidentally freeing a wacky blue phasm by the name Flabber. As thanks for releasing him from his prison, he gave them a wish, which they were unanimous on: the kids wanted to be their favorite comic book superheroes - the Beetleborgs! But in fulfilling their wish, Flabber accidentally releases the Beetleborgs' enemies, the evil Magnavores, from the comic book world as well. Now the kids, as the armored, insect-powered, (adult-) cyborg warriors called the Beetleborgs, must defend their city from the Magnavores, which include Noxic, Jara, Typhus and their boss, Vexor, as they release evil creatures also out of any issue of the comics. The comic arsenal is also at the kids' disposal, including powerful weapons and three giant fighting machines known as the Beetle A.V.s. The shy but courageous Drew takes the form of the Blue Stinger Beetleborg (and later, the Chromium Gold Beetleborg). He also has the civilian ability of telekinetic powers. Jo, his tomboyish younger sister (who later goes through a change of actresses due to a magic spell gone bad), is the Red Striker (and later Platinum Purple) Beetleborg, and has the civilian ability of super-strength. And the budding magician Roland is the Green Hunter Beetleborg (and later, the Titanium Silver Beetleborg), with super-speed as his civilian ability. Then in "BeetleBorgs Metallix", Art Fortunes, creator of the Beetleborgs comics, creates better and more powerful armor for the heroes, to combat a new line of evil which are created by Art's criminal insane brother, Les Fortunes! His creation of Nukus, Horribelle, Vilor, and their Crustaceans are the new enemies of these new Metallix-powered Beetleborgs. The supporting cast includes Flabber's child-hungry roommates, known as the House Monsters (which include vampiric Count Fangula, tightly-wound Mums, dim-witted Frankenbeans, incomprehensable Wolfgang, and later the fiesty Little Ghoul); Roland's butt-kicking, bike-riding grandmother Nano; Roland's Zoom Comics-owning father Aaron (and later his mother, Abby); Heather, a pretty young girl who works at Zoom and Drew has a major crush on; and Van & Trip, two millionaire brats who tend to bully around the kids. Big Bad Beetleborgs was adapted from the 1995 Toei Metal Hero program, "Juukou Bii Faitaa (Heavy Armor B-Fighter). Beetleborgs Metallix was adapted from the 1996 Toei Metal Hero program, "Bii Faitaa Kabuto" (B-Fighter Kabuto). The series aired Mondays to Fridays, and Saturday mornings, on the Fox Kids block of the Fox network, from its inception, until the fall of 1998, when reruns of it moved to the UPN Kids block of the United Paramount Network. It has not aired in the USA since 1999, though continues to run in other countries, most notably the United Kingdom. The series ended due to two major factors: Toei stopped production of its Metal Hero series, meaning no series to adapt for a third season (which was tentatively titled Beetleborgs Force), which would have meant much higher production costs. And secondly, Saban Entertainment needed to free up more money to fund the Ireland co-production Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. The toy line even continued after the show ended its run! Beetleborgs (both seasons) was a production of Renaissance-Atlantic Films. A co-production of Toei Company, LTD. and Bugboy Productions, Inc. And copyrighted by Saban Entertainment, Inc. and Saban International, N.V. (which is now owned by Disney, and goes by the name of BVS Entertainment, Inc.) (One last FYI: Shannon "Jo #1" Chandler and Elisabeth "Heather" Lund were nominated for "Best Performance by a Young Actress in a Saturday Morning TV Program" at the YoungStar Awards for the series)moreless

    Sherlock Holmes in the 22nd Century

    FOX (ended 2001)
    Sherlock Holmes has been rescusitated in the 22nd century to combat Moriarty's clone. With the help of a droid programmed with the personality of Watson, Inspector Beth Lestrade of New Scotland Yard, and the Baker Street Irregulars, Holmes searches for clues and usually manages to come up with a solution that keeps everyone guessing. Characters Sherlock Holmes: Sharp as a tack, but not a real people person, this guy is pretty self explanatory. He uses deductive logic (i.e. All lights in this room are green. There is a light on the table. Therefore it must be green.) to solve crimes. If you listen hard, you can usually follow his explanation, at least by the last few minutes of the show. Watson: A compudroid programmed to have the personality of Watson (complete with the phrase "I don't understand, Holmes. How did you know..."), Watson was initially rejected by Holmes, who thought no one, and especially no robot, could replace the real Watson. Watson is great in a tight spot, as he is much stronger than the average human (and most of the non-average ones as well). Inspector Beth Lestrade: Apparently a descendant of the Lestrade in the original short stories, this girl is something else. Wild, reckless, destructive, always bucking authority, and generally "tough-cop", she is always ready to act on insufficient information. But, all in all, she usually settles down enough to be of some service at least once or twice an episode. Wiggins: A would-be boxer, this guy used to play soccer at Princeton. He is one of the Baker Street Irregulars, employed by Holmes to be an extra set of eyes, ears, and legs. Wiggins checks out leads, shadows people, and generally helps Holmes out by gathering facts. He has a girlfriend named Jacey, but as far as I know she hasn't figured into much. Deidre: This girl is also one of the Baker Street Irregulars, and does mostly the same things as Wiggins. However, she sometimes sees things a different way than either Holmes, Watson, or Wiggins, and this unique perspective makes her invaluable. Tennison: Confined to an anti-grav chair, Tennison is the computer expert of the bunch. He helps Holmes out by checking computer systems and security systems. Moriarty: Cloned back to life as an accident, he is again wreacking havoc, though this time in New London. He is Holmes' archenemy, and was basically the model for a lot of evil geniuses with extensive networks.moreless

    Now and Again premiered on CBS television in September 1999 and focused on what would happen if a dead man's brain were removed and placed in a body with superhuman strength and mental powers. Michael Wiseman, now Michael Newman, was drafted to assist a government scientist on a variety of projects. Michael's refusal to give up his family from his "past life," however, proved more difficult to contend with than any in the government could ever have guessed.

    Build a man with the speed of Michael Jordan, the strength of Superman and the grace of Fred Astaire. A guy who's going to look good, be young, be omnipotent. Wild, huh?

    The Six Million Dollar Man for the new millennium maybe? It could have been. It featured a unique concept and a strong cast, many of which now appear in various popular series. but a massive audience never really caught on for the program. Though the program had a strong cult following and many efforts were made to revive it and have it released on DVD. As of 2006, however, no DVD set is available.

    All said and done, this was a series that likely should have done better than it did. It was funny, with great action scenes and compelling emotional plots. It also featured a strong cliffhanger ending, one which there will likely never be a resolution to.

    Where Have They Been and Where Are They Now?

    Now and Again featured a strong cast that now appear in many hit television series.

    Eric Close - Michael New/Wiseman - Close can now be seen as Agent Martin Fitzgerald in another CBS program, the hit procedural drama Without a Trace.

    Dennis Haysbert - Dr. Theodore Morris - Haysbert enjoyed great success as President David Palmer on FOX's 24. He also appeared in a series of commercials for All State Insurance and now stars as Jonas Blane on CBS's The Unit.

    Gerrit Graham - Roger Bender - Graham appeared as Q/Quinn in Star Trek: Voyager. After being largely inactive in television for a few years, he returned with a guest stint on Law and Order. He also recently performed the character Mr. John Willoughby in the film Stick it in Detroit.

    Margaret Colin - Lisa Wiseman - Colin's most recent television work was a guest stint on Law and Order: Criminal Intent.

    Heather Matarazzo - Heather Wiseman - Now starring on the series The Rules: A Lesbian Survival Guide. Also appeared as Lilly Moscovitz in both Princess Diaries films.

    Many of the show staff have also moved on to other popular projects. For example, creator Glenn Gordon Caron went on to create the hit NBC drama Medium.moreless
