At first skeptical, Gary started to try saving people's lives and stop disasters from happening. With the help of his friends Chuck and Marissa, Gary became a man with a mission, even though he doesn't know why or how the paper gets to him every morning.

    Now and Again

    CBS (ended 2000)
    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

    CBS (ended 1992)
    Based on the highly successful Back to the Future movie trilogy, this series is set, um, "after" the events of the last film, as the adventures of Marty McFly and Doc Brown in their DeLorean time machine continue. Joining the ride is Clara, (Doc's wife from Back To The Future Part III) Jules and Verne (their sons) Einstein the dog and Jennifer (Marty's girlfriend). And apparently there's a Tannen in every time as relatives of Biff keep popping up, and creating conflict. Mary Steenburgen and Thomas F. Wilson reprise their roles from the movies. During live portions of the show, Christopher Lloyd reprised his role as Doc Brown and was joined by Bill Nye, who conducted experiments that were used in the show. The series won 4 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Film Sound Editing and Outstanding Film Sound Mixing of Season 1-2.moreless

    CBS (ended 1993)
    By the year 2104, mankind has spread among the stars. Fort Hope, on the planet Avalon, is one of the far-flung outposts of trade and diplomacy. Maintaining order on the wild, new frontier is the responsibility of the Space Rangers. Fort Hope's best Ranger team is commanded by Captain John Boon. His pilot is Jojo Thorsen, a lithe, tough blonde from the planet of New Venus, where no men live. The flight engineer is Doc, who has been wounded so many times that much of his body – including his heart – has been replaced by artificial parts. Zylyn is a missionary from the Grakka, a race of fierce warriors who have renounced their old ways to embrace peace, but still continually battle their buried emotions. And the newest member of the team, Daniel Kincaid, a general's son who's quick on the draw but still wet behind the ears. The team flies into action in Ranger Slingship 377, the Lizzy. The commander of Fort Hope is Commander Chennault, backed by Colonel Weiss, who would rather be back in civilization in Central Command. Due to low ratings, this midseason replacement was cancelled after four episodes were aired on CBS. The two filmed but unaired episodes were later shown in Australia before all six episodes were eventually released on Region 2 (UK) and Region 4 (Australia) DVD sets.moreless

    Welcome to the Project Geeker guide at TV.com. Welcome to the FABULOUS WORLD OF TOMORROW!

    Welcome to overcrowding! Pollution! Crime! Five hundred home shopping channels! Yes, you heard right. It's worse than you ever imagined. FIVE HUNDRED HOME SHOPPING CHANNELS. The human mind cannot bear such untrammeled terror.

    In the future, there are two simple rules to remember:

    NO SPITTING.

    DON'T CROSS MISTER MOLOCH.

    Mister Moloch is the CEO of Moloch Industries, the giga-corporation which owns and operates most of the Earth (not to mention the moon, mars, and most of the more upscale parts of the asteroid belt). Moloch is one small step from world domination. And that's a step he's eager to take.

    In order to achieve his goal of total conquest, Moloch initiated Project GKR (Geno-Kinetic Research). Helmed by the brilliant but unstable Doctor Maston, the aim of Project GKR was to create the perfect corporate warrior; an artificial human with fantastic powers, whom Moloch could use to crush all who opposed him.

    Project GKR succeeded beyond Moloch's wildest dreams, resulting in a synthetic man - known as "Geeker" - with complete control over his own molecular structure. Geeker had power enough to destroy the world... or conquer it, for Moloch.

    But before Geeker could receive the programming which would enable him to control his powers and make him a slave to Moloch's will, he was stolen by a streetwise thief named Lady MacBeth, who was aided by an intelligent dinosaur named Noah. Lady MacBeth and Noah thought they were stealing a device they could sell on the black market. But when they opened the canister they had stolen, instead of some new high-tech weapon, they found Geeker.

    Without his final programming, Geeker was innocent and childlike; possessing fantastic powers but largely unable to control them. Noah and Lady MacBeth - whom Geeker promptly nicknamed "Becky" - realized they had something incredibly valuable on their hands. But they also realized that neither of them were hard-hearted enough to sell a human being.

    It was clear that Moloch meant to use Geeker to destroy anyone standing between him and world conquest - probably starting with Becky and Noah. Moloch would stop at nothing to get Geeker back. Becky and Noah had no choice but to keep Moloch from capturing Geeker at all costs.

    Now Geeker, Becky and Noah are on the run from Moloch. They ought to be doomed, really, just the three of them against the awesome forces of Moloch Industries. But soon, Moloch will learn the truth of that old saying:

    THE GEEK SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH.

    The series was a collection of various tales that range from the tragic to the comedic. They may be scary or just thought-provoking. Most episodes have unexpected endings and a moral lesson. But, no matter what, it's "a journey into a wondrous land, whose boundaries are that of the imagination." Rod Serling, creator and host of the series, won two Emmys for outstanding writing (1960 & '61), and the Golden Globe in 1962 for best TV director/producer. Reruns of the original Twilight Zone can be seen on the US Sci Fi channel. This is the Original 1959 series, not the CBS The Twilight Zone (1985) version nor the UPN The Twilight Zone (2002) version.
