    In No Opportunity Wasted host Phil Keoghan (The Amazing Race) provides selected participants with $3,000 and a clear schedule for 72 hours. Their challenge is to use this to pursue a once-in-a-lifetime experience they've always imagined. In a format similar to Australia's Who Dares Wins, contestants have no idea what's about to happen until Phil meets them at their home and place of work. No Opportunity Wasted premiered on Sunday, October 3 at 8:00 PM. On October 21, the program received a new timeslot: Thursday nights at 8 P.M., with repeats throughout the week. Recently, No Opportunity Wasted was moved from the Discovery Channel to FitTV, a sub-network unavailable to many cable and satellite viewers. Whether this was due to low ratings is unknown, since the previous timeslot change seemed to suggest that the program had been doing well.

    Reasonable Doubt is a television series that aired from 1991 to 1993. It is a drama that starred Mark Harmon who played Detective Dicky Cobb and Marlee Matlin who played Assistant District Attorney Tess Kaufman. In the series Tess Kaufman is a deaf yet highly successful attorney who is followed by her interpreter Ben Douglas. Dicky Cobb was a tough cop that is assigned to work as an investigator for Tess mainly due to the fact that he knew sign language. During the series they both work together solving crimes. Both bump heads along the way because Dicky is a man who doesn't always follow the rules, and Tess is a by the book type person. Reasonable Doubt is a show that kept you thinking and never failed to interest the viewer. During its short run and few seasons it gathered lots of fans and to this day is still a great series. moreless

    Anthony Head (that bloke from Buffy and the Nescafe ads) was asked by those nice people behind Warrior Women Documentary with Lucy "Xena" Lawless to front a programme on True Horror and fortunately he said "Yes." In True Horror, Anthony explores the truth behind the long established Hollywood Myths of Vampires, Demons, Werewolves, Witches and Zombies and discovers that behind the stories we've all seen on the Silver Screen lie even more disturbing origins. Unlike other documentaries where the presenter is based in the studio providing quirky links between films of reporters in the field, Anthony was hands on throughout the production. He met and interviewed experts as varied as the Head of the Vatican's Exorcism Department and Chief Druids and travelled to such far afield places as the Caparthian Mountains, Zululand and France. Initially a series of 5 documentaries each of 50 minutes it looks like there could be more in the future.moreless

    The adventures of A.R.K. is a show about a group of vet volunteers,a vet.and a vet assistant who in every half hour episode help animals in need. At the end of every show during the end credits they talk about the animal that was featured in that episode. In each episode there is an animal in need that they try to help, but in some episodes it also can deal with that issue and another issue and it will be connected somehow. There is one boy who even has a monkey for a pet. This show deals with some pretty serious issues involving animals. You would be surprised at some of the things that these kids go through to save these animals. Even though sometimes they have to go through some tough things to save them, but no matter what it takes to save these animals they always come through. In the last season there was only one episode {changes in the air} to show the changes that are happening in the show, but even though there are a bunch of changes going on, they still find a way to save the animals and help them out. This show shows that animals have feelings too and should be treated like humans are because they are just like us. Information about Season 1 Season one introduced you to the characters and showing you how much they love animals and showing you some of the challenges that they would go through to save animals from bad situations. You learn why some of them like animals so much and you learn that animals should be treated with the same respect that humans get. You learn that animals are almost just like us because they have a way to communicate with other animals and all kind of stuff. In this season, you learn animals should be treated with respect. Information about Season 2 In this season you get reintroduced to the characters and their love of animals .You see them go through a bunch more tough challenges to save animals lives, but in this season you see that some animals can be harmful in their own defense. You see that some people can get hurt if their not careful around animals. You also that one of the vet volunteers, after a shark attack struggles to see how much he really loves animals. A lot of things are happening in this season but the message remains the same. Animals should be treated with respect. Information about Season 3 In Season three there was only one episode but this episode showed a bunch of changes happening at the animal shelter. You see one of the volunteers is going away back to his hometown.Another volunteer got accepted to college and a bunch of other changes are happening but you still get the message that you should treat animals with respect and change is not all that bad all the time.moreless
