    Bus Stop

    Follow
    ABC (ended 1962)
    Welcome to the Bus Stop guide at TV.com. The bus stop of this series was a dine in Sunrise, Colorado, a small town in Rocky Mountain country. The continuing characters included Grace Sherwood, the working owner of the diner, Elma Gahringer the waitress, Sheriff Will Mayberry and DA Glenn Wagner. The stories revolved around the people passing through Sunrise, and many an unusual character stepped off that interstate bus. The program earned national notoriety and probably early cancellation due to an episode titled "A Lion Walks Among Us", which was based on a Tom Wicker novel and starred rock singer Fabian Forte as a youthful psychopath bent on murder and mayhem. This segment was widely denounced for its explicit violence and sadism and was cited in Congressional hearings on violence in television. The president of ABC-TV when challenged by an angry senator as to whether he allowed his own children to watch such a series, stammered and admitted no he did not. Shortly thereafter the show ended permanently.moreless

    ABC (ended 1999)
    Welcome to the Wasteland guide at TV.com. "A Cocktail of "Friends", "Ally McBeal", and "Sex and the City."- Vanity Fair What is it that you really want out of life? Life has no master plan. Six twentysomething friends who went to college together are now living in New York trying to find themselves, through out the good and bad times. From Kevin Williamson, the creator of Scream and "Dawson's Creek" comes a new drama that defines the new age of your coming of age. One would say it is better than Dawson's Creek, because they are the right age to know what they are talking about. Just add a little dash of technology age around 1999, and "Wasteland" gives you one of the enjoyable/ 'guilty pleasure' shows of the 1999-2000 season. The series was also know as "wasteLAnd", which was suppose to feature them in L.A. (hence the title), but they ditched the idea of them in L.A., and made it New York City. READ THE GUIDE WITH CAUTION! Just to let you know that I think some of the notes might be offensive to people, so read with caution! I added notes from what I heard and what I read everywhere around 1999-2001 about the show. Wasteland went on hiatus, where it was suppose to return on December 1999, but was pulled off the schedule and cancelled. Come 2001, It was picked up by ShowNext, a subdivision of Showtime Networks. It ran COMMERCIAL FREE, regularly on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. For a year durning it's run, ShowNext aired ALL episodes 5 times straight (see broadcast history below), before Shownext put it off their schedule. Opening Theme Song:

IT IS A BIG N-O. Any emails asking me this, will not get replied, but deleted instead. I also don't do S.A.S.E or tape trading. Some interesting of Trivia about Wasteland (and "Mulholland Dr." the TV Pilot rejected by ABC and now a feature movie): "Wasteland" took on the 9 PM time slot of Thursday Nights on ABC. ABC Execs. choose "Wasteland" over David Lynch's "Mulholland Dr.", which was suppose to be his big return to TV, which he vows never to do again. Justin Theroux one of the stars of "Mulholland Dr." was originally suppose to be in "Wasteland" decided to go with "Mulholland Dr.". "Mulholland Dr." was supposed to go up against NBC's "Friends" (8 PM Time Slot), but ABC wanted a stupid twentysomething "Friends" clone show that America would "like." Other twentylike shows durning the 1999-2000 season was WB'S "D.C.", "Jack and Jill", NBC's "Cold Feet", and FOX's "Time of Your Life". "The motto of ABC that year was that they were going to go 'young.' They gave us these wonderful shows like Wasteland with Rebecca Gayheart and things like that. That was what they wanted – they had a whole spate of shows that were "dramedies," as they were calling them, about kids with their heads up their asses." - Justin Theroux, one of the stars of "Mulholland Dr.".

    Lucan

    Follow
    ABC (ended 1978)
    Lucan, was a show about a baby boy lost in the wilderness of Minnesota, USA. This child was found and raised to age ten by a she wolf as her own. The child grew up in the wild learning his own unique form of socialization. At age ten the wild child discovered by hunters was subsequently captured and taken to a university research center. At the research center this Wolf Boy was experimented upon while being taught basics of coping in so called human civilization. The child raised by wolves started saying LUCAN upon hearing a doctor friends encouragement saying YOU CAN thinking this was his name so the doctor named him LUCAN. LUCAN grew into a fine well educated 20 year old man just as the research university made both he and the research project that supported him a hotbed of political infighting. Lucan's stressed out old scientist, protector, now mentor and close friend "John Randolph" as Dr. Hoagland suffers a non-fatal acccident. In The Pilot Episode: The good doctor no longer able to defend LUCAN against corrupt heartless University foes begged his wolf boy-human hybred friend to escape by melting into the uncharted wilderness of human civilization. In The Lucan Series: show viewers join Lucan on his journey doing good while searching for his natural parents. Lucan always had a strong abiding urge to find his natural parents. The old sick doctor friend felt it was time Lucan left his protected university research world to join mainstream human society. LUCAN used skills honed growing up with wolves to escape the research institute venturing out into humankind's civilization on a quest to find his parents. Series basically chronical's LUCAN's search for his parents played against a backdrop of different intrigues. In each episode LUCAN attempts to cope with human civilization by further developing his own hybred human-wolfen brand of socialization skills. Lucan is dogged without mercy by money grubbing, cold hearted, inept bounty hunter special police investigator and all around boob Don Gordon as "Prentiss". Lucan is sometimes helped by his research doctor friend and mentor Dr. Hoagland throughout the series. Lucan meets new challenges, people and animals who are changed after encountering his unique wolfen-human hybred manner. While Lucan makes many dear new friend's he lets nothing stop his quest following all leads to his real parents giving the series its reason to continue. Since the series never made it beyond 12 episodes the concept was never fully developed beyond what is stated here. The series may have been inspired by the French movie "L'Enfant Sauvage" (The Wild Child) by Francois Truffaut. This movie recounts the authentic case of Victor of Aveyron, a wild boy captured by huntsmen in the depths of a French forest in 1798. And made the subject of a prolonged study by Dr. Jean Itard of the Deaf and Dumb Institute in Paris, an imposing building in the rue Saint-Jacques. The film was released to American audiences in 1970, but has recently been re-released on DVD. ----------------------------------- Production Companies * MGM Television ----------------------------------- Release dates Pilot: USA -- 22 May 1977 Series: USA -- 26 December 1977 ----------------------------------moreless

    At twenty-five years old, the world seems pretty daunting - work, friends, love - every decision you make feels like life or death, because every decision shapes the course your life will take. At twenty-five years old, you either find the courage to pursue your dreams or make certain compromises in your career and relationships that will affect you for the next 25 years. And for six friends in Chicago, living together makes the trauma of being twenty-five years old just a little bit easier.

    The seven guys and girls sharing this Chicago home are caught between youth and adulthood. While some are more lost than others, each of them brings a distinct point of view about what it's like to try and find yourself in your twenties. Some dream about making it big, some dream about finding their soul-mate - and others are just trying to make it through the day. The one thing they all have in common is a vague notion that there's something more to life, but none of them are quite sure what or how to get it. Though they don't know it yet - this group of friends is living through the best time of their lives.

    From the creators of Once & Again, thirtysomething, and My So-Called Life comes a lively drama with all the promise and angst, confidence and doubt that comes with taking your first steps into adulthood.moreless
