    Tokyo Broadcasting System (ended 1999)
    In an anonymous city in Chinatown, a mysterious pet shop stands nestled between restaurants and pop stores. The storekeeper, known only as "Count," offers a marvelous selection of rare and unusual animals with the ability to manifest their masters' hidden desires, unfulfilled wishes and hopes for a second chance - but there's one catch. The buyer must sign a contract agreeing to follow a specific set of instructions for the animal's care and maintenance. Breaking the terms of the contract results in serious repercussions for which the shop assumes no responsibility-so, let the buyer beware. Character Profiles Count D The mysterious and androgynous manager of the Pet Shop, D prides himself on selling Love and Dreams. He truly cares about his creatures and genuinely wishes his pets and their new owners the best ... but he is also always aware of the dire alternative outcome that is possible should his instructions about care and handling be ignored. D has quite a sweet tooth and as Leon has discovered, D is all too eager to discuss his pets over a slice of dessert and a flavorful cup of tea. He has a pet of his own, a bizarre little creature which is part bat, part rabbit. No one knows what the 'D' in the Count's name is short for. Leon Orcot A detective on the police force, Leon believes that Count D's pet shop is somehow related to an otherwise seemingly unrelated series of crimes. He doesn't have proof linking D himself to the crimes, but Leon is determined to find out the truth about the pet shop. This guide also has information of the mangas that have been released by TokyoPop. Any additional info will be contributed to the Pet Catalog. "In the heart of the city, you will find Chinatown; a mysterious place where rare and valuable commodities are in abundance. Welcome to my petshop; tonight you will find something you desire." -Anime Intromoreless

In total, 44 half-hour episodes were produced. Rip Torn narrated the opening and closing of each episode. There is no music played during the opening credits, but Rip Torn speaks the same line each time: Come with me to a place of wondrous contradictions. A place that is silent and unstirring yet is restless and alive. A place of untold peace and boundless dread. Come with me into the very cradle of darkness where those who dwell, dwell alone.moreless

    FOX (ended 1999)
    I was a cop. My wife was raped, I caught the guy who did it, and I killed him. Two months later I died, and went to Hell. 113 of the most vile creature escaped. The high concept of this story is that Detective Ezekial Stone was sent to Hell for the murder of his wife's rapist. He spends 15 years in Hell, until 113 souls managed to escape. The Devil needs someone to send them back to Hell, but can't do much on the physical plane. So he sends Ezekial after them, with the promise that if Stone recovers all 113, he'll win permanent freedom from Hell. And if he fails, he's damned for good. All of the escapees as well as Stone are supernaturally indestructible, except they can inflict pain on each other. The only way to send someone back to Hell is to destroy their eyes, the "windows of the soul." Worse, some of the escapees spent centuries, if not millennia, in Hell and have developed great power - little of which Stone, a relatively recent prisoner, has himself. Each week, with a little help (and the occasional hindrance) from the Devil, Stone typically tracks down another of the escapees and sends them back to Hell. He is tattoed with the names of each one, and when he sends them back the appropriate tattoo burns itself off. Meanwhile, Stone's ex-wife still believes him dead, but Stone can't resist checking in on her from time to time. This series only ran 13 episodes on Fox, but has a devoted cult following and is rerun from time to time on the SciFi Channel.moreless

    NBC (ended 1998)
    "This powerful one-hour family drama from executive producer John Wells (ER) and creator/supervising producer Matthew McNair Carnahan (Black Circle Boys) centers on the McCallisters, a working-class Irish-Catholic family from New York's Hell's Kitchen, whose five young-adult siblings lead contrasting lives and whose fierce loyalties are often pushed to the limit." "Capturing the compelling, poignant reality of familial relationships, the series stars Tate Donovan, Charlotte Ross, Justin Louis, Sam Trammell, Bonnie Root, Kim Raver, John Spencer and Jill Clayburgh." "Bobby (Justin Louis, Public Morals) an intense, ambitious police detective who works the streets of Hell's Kitchen, believes that his brother Liam (Tony Award nominee Sam Trammell, Ah Wilderness), an emerging union leader, works for a boss tied to organized crime. Also, to Bobby's dismay, his wife Clarissa (Kim Raver, Central Park West) maintains a suspiciously close relationship with Liam. Kevin McCallister (Tate Donovan, Warner Bros.' Friends and Hercules), a young parish priest, and the rest of the family concern themselves with the wild, self-destructive behavior of the youngest of the clan, Amanda (Bonnie Root, Home Invasion). Successful stockbroker and older sister Fiona's (Charlotte Ross, Days of Our Lives) long-term affair with her married boss wreaks havoc on her self-esteem. A sixth sibling [Mikey] died under mysterious circumstances years ago." "The tightly knit clan gathers weekly at the home of their parents, Eileen and Simon McCallister, for Sunday dinner -- putting aside conflicts and focusing on the unwavering love that's at the core of this family." (Warner Bros. press release) After four years of giving them huge audiences from that hospital show he helped bring to the small screen, NBC wanted John Wells to give them another rambling ensemble drama along the same lines -- and the same ratings. Wells latched on to a script from indie filmmaker Matthew McNair Carnahan, and chose this as his next project, claiming at the time that it was as different from ER as night and day. Wells also acknowledged that sudsy family dramas like Trinity have hardly ever been instant hits in the past -- as ER was and as NBC wanted -- and that, as a slow-building show, it needed a patient network who would give it time to develop an audience. Seems he momentarily forgot what network he sold it to. Trinity redefined slow-building (actually, it redefined reverse-building), and was yanked off the schedule at the beginning of November sweeps, three weeks after its belated premiere, two weeks after NBC's programming division underwent management changes. NBC stated they would make an announcement on its future by Christmas, but the coffin was sealed pretty much shut when reruns of Law & Order (incidentally, a slow-building show they somehow did manage to let grow) pulled bigger numbers. NBC never did make that announcement, and Warner Bros. stopped production four episodes early. The following season, John Wells took John Spencer, Kim Raver, Skipp Sudduth, Bobby Cannavale and a lot of the production crew with him -- and proved he wasn't a one-hit wonder. Right around the time Trinity dropped off the face of prime time, the programming chief who developed it, Warren Littlefield, was sent on his merry way. In January, 1999, a Littlefield-free NBC saw Trinity's Friday vacancy filled with a sudsy family drama called Providence. Which gave...well, you all know what came of that.

    (ended 1986)
    Inspector Gadget was a cartoon parody of the 1960's television spy parody, Get Smart. Don Adams played the leads in both shows. There are similarities between the two shows. Both agents only had lots of gadgets or devices that they never could use correctly. Both worked for a chief that they invariably infuriated. And of course, both Gadget and Smart were lovable idiots who always won in the end, usually by accident or by someone else's help. Created by DIC Entertainment, this show was voiced in Canada and Los Angeles, drawn in Korea, edited in Los Angeles and distributed by DIC International. First produced as a 1/2 hour pilot in 1983, it was picked up and produced until 1986 for TV. Years later, Inspector Gadget is seen in 55 countries in 24 languages. Spinoffs: Gadget Boy and Heather, Gadget Boy's Adventures in History, Inspector Gadget's Field Trip and Gadget and the Gadgetinis. A liveaction theatrical movie based on the cartoon was released in 1999, as well as a liveaction direct-to-video sequel in 2003.moreless
