    To Have & To Hold

    CBS (ended 1998)
    Welcome to the To Have & To Hold guide at TV Tome. We follow the lives of Annie (Moira Kelly) and Sean (Jason Beghe), a slightly "crazy" and confused newly-wed couple. He is a cop; she a public defender, and their cases quite often put them up against each other as we follow Annie and Sean in their professional and personal lives. Sean's big Irish family is also an important part of the story. There's his grumpy father Robert (John Cullum) and his generous but meddling mother Fiona (Fionnula Flanagan), and Sean's two rebellious younger brothers Tommy (Stephen Largay) and Michael (Jason Wiles), who are both cops. And last, but certainly not least, there's Sean's older brother Patrick (Stephen Lee), a firefighter and established family father who is going through a mid-life crisis. Coincidentally, Patrick's wife Carolyn (Colleen Flynn) is Annie's sister; making them all one big and ultimately eccentric family. To Have & to Hold was created by Joanne T. Waters, and aired Wednesday at CBS during the 1998-1999 TV season. It was a romantic family drama with some healthy doses of down-to-earth humor thrown in. The writing wasn't always the best, but the two lead actors, Moira Kelly and Jason Beghe, put in some excellent work and had a great chemistry between them. Unfortunately, the show was never really given the chance to develop itself and grow on the viewers. No more than thirteen episodes were produced, and only nine of these aired on CBS. The last four episodes have all been aired abroad, though.moreless

    Life. . .and Stuff

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1997)
    "Life... and Stuff" centered on a husband (Rick Reynolds) and wife (Pam Dawber) who tried to keep their love-life fresh and cope with the uneasy truths of modern-day marriage. With his stressful job as an advertising executive and her long hours as a housewife and mother, there wasn't much time for romance or meaningful conversation...so they argued and yelled a lot! Their two sons, Jerry and Shawn, rarely said a word, instead spending their days glued firmly to the TV set. Rick's spaced-out unemployed kid brother, Andy, lived in a motor home in the driveway and spent his days barging in, stealing food and generally mooching from his elder sibling. Jordan, Nancy and Bernie were Rick's co-workers at the advertising agency, and Christine was Ronnie's loopy best friend. Based on stand-up comic Rick Reynold's critically acclaimed autobiographical one-man-show, "Only the Truth Is Funny," the show was compared to "Everybody Loves Raymond," though it was far darker and more cynical. Episodes commonly had a black-and-white fantasy sequence that harked back to "Father Knows Best," "Leave It to Beaver," and other classic shows and films, while Rick would go on to narrate that his life should have turned out like those family's lives. The six-episodes that were produced were slated to premiere in January of '97, but CBS pushed back the airdate to June, in order to completely kill off the series (isn't that usually the case?). Three episodes aired, and although a fourth was scheduled, it was replaced with a rerun of "Dave's World." Initially the show was supposed to return after the following week's 4th of July special, but instead CBS opted to air reruns of "Dave's World" for the remainder of the summer. If you have any additional information on the unaired episodes, please let me know. June 1997----Fridays----8:30----CBSmoreless

    Lonesome Dove is a western television miniseries based on the novel of the same name by Larry McMurty that originally aired on the CBS network in 1989. The series revolves around two well known former Texas Rangers, Captain Augustus McCrae (Robert Duvall) and Captain Woodrow F. Call (Tommy Lee Jones) running the Hat Creek Cattle Company and Livery Emporium in the town of Lonesome Dove. McCrae is a well known womanizer but has also been in love with Clara (Anjelica Houston) for many years. McCrae has often proposed marriage to Clara, but she always rejects him. Clara is also jealous of the time Call has spent with McCrae. Call, unlike McCrae, is a workaholic who has a son named Newt (Rick Schroder) born from a prostitute named Maggie whom Call loved. Call refuses to accept Newt as his son, but Newt works with Call and McCrae trading horses. Also working with Call and McCrae is a man by the name of Joshua Deets (Danny Glover) who is a former partner of theirs from their Ranger days. One day another former partner named Jake Spoon (Robert Urich) arrives in Lonesome Dove on the run from the law. Spoon speaks of settling in Montana and Call is drawn to it.

    CBS (ended 1994)
    Cadillacs and Dinosaurs is the brainchild of Mark Schultz, who originally created the series in comic book format under the title Xenozoic Tales in the year 1986. The television series came to be through the marketing of Marvel Comics, when (years later) the company had acquired the rights to the property and attempted a revival of the popularity it once held in comic format. The series followed the exploits of survival-savvy garage mechanic Jack Tenrec, (who had a passion for restoring classic car shells, mainly those of Cadillacs) and his often-reluctant companion, the lovely foreign ambassador Hannah Dundee (who hired Jack as a liason while she attempted to create clear communication between her land and the modern civilization) as they confronted serious issues facing the futuristic environment that they (and the rest of humanity) had come to inhabit alongside many dinosaurs that were long thought to be extinct. Jack, leading his crew (a band of ecological freedom fighters known as the Mechanics), squared off against opposition in the form of the Council of Governors, the tyrannical Wilhelmina Scharnhorst and her nefarious henchmen among others. The show dealt with many strong ecologicial (one major focus was the question of how the dinosaurs managed to re-emerge after they were thought to be extinct) and political issues that were central to the plot development. As a result of that coupled with the placement amidst a programming schedule that consisted of shows mainly geared toward a younger demographic, it went virtually unnoticed. This show boasted superb animation and was surprisingly well-written. Many fans who can remember viewing it note the superior quality as one of the reasons they first started to enjoy the short-lived series. In total, Cadillacs and Dinosaurs lasted for one full season (13 episodes) and was never considered for renewal.moreless

    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

    The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour

    CBS (ended 1970)
    Considered by many as a "poster show" for the First Amendment, The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour didn't quite begin that way.
    Less than a year after the cancellation of a sitcom also on CBS, the network gave Tom and Dick Smothers another chance with a variety series. This time, the formula worked. The sibling rivalry continued with aplomb, and the show was a better showcase for their musical and comedic talents. Not to mention the high-caliber talent who guested on the show: Mickey Rooney, George Segal, Kenny Rogers, and Liberace, to name just a few. The show was also a showcase for new talent and a venue for hot music. Mason Williams, Steve Martin, Bob Einstein, and Rob Reiner cut their teeth in the entertainment business with this show. Among the highlights in the music department: The Doors, The Who (whose "smashing" appearance ranks among VH1's Greatest Moments In Rock And Roll History), George Harrison, and Paul Revere And The Raiders. The show was also a hotbed of controversy, more or less. Through 72 episodes over 2½ seasons, and depending on the source of the story, The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour was either working their butts off to make the CBS network happy over bits and pieces of their programs being censored, or were just being outright rebellious to see how much they could put on the air. In April 1969, the flashpoint happened: the show was cancelled, despite protests. The battle over the show would actually end in 1973, when a court ruled the Smothers firing to be illegal (they had been officially renewed weeks before their cancellation), and that their First Amendment rights had been violated. The win was financially small compared to the multi-millions won in lawsuits today, but the moral win was a lot bigger: the door opened for more venues or creativity. There remains some question, however, if Free Speech in the form of political satire is still really free. Tom Smothers expressed this in his appearance on the American Public Television series Speaking Freely.moreless
