    FOX (ended 1998)
    Imagine being able to sense danger, crawl any wall, be strong enough to bend steel, and have more agility than any other human? For Peter Parker, this is a fact. Except he doesn't think of it as a gift. In his final year of High School, Peter Parker was bitten by an irradiated spider. After brief hallucinations, Peter wakes up with incredible powers--much like that of a spider. Thus, to make some extra cash, Peter takes on the persona of Spider-Man, and tries to pursue a career as a pro wrestler. When he witnesses a robbery, he lets the criminal escape, simply because "it's not his problem". Then, when his dear Uncle Ben is killed, Peter finds that the murderer is none other than the criminal he failed to stop before. Now, Peter uses his powers to stop crime, as he learns that "With great power, comes great responibility". Beginning in November of 1994, John Semper and crew launched the most accurate portrayal of Peter Parker to be animated to date. Where previous animated incarnations focused on action, this version provided the same three dimensional Peter Parker found in the comics. Complete with the familiar supporting cast, a hapless lovelife, doting Aunt May, and grumpy J. Jonah Jameson, the show places Peter during his college years at ESU. In the 65 episodes, Spidey faced almost all of the major Spidey villains, old and new (except for the absence of the Sandman). Even the comic's second stringers like Rocket Racer, Madame Web, and the Prowler have appeared on the show! It was later followed by the somewhat weaker, short lived series Spider-Man Unlimited, which followed Spidey's adventures on counterearth. Spider-Man Airing Times Saturdays at 11:00am on ABC Family Every Night at 10:30pm on Toon Disney Each episode airs in their order of production, not original airdate. Therefore, the reruns are all in the correct order. Spider-Man is currently part of Disney's new Jetix block. Note: These times are for the US only, in Eastern Time Zone. Character Bios Peter Parker/Spider-Man: Peter is a kind of shy and quiet guy. He's a science-wiz, and he has a crush on his best friend Mary-Jane Watson. Peter also works for the Daily Bugle, a local newspaper, for minimum wage. But whenever trouble calls, he transforms into his web-slinging alter-ego Spider-Man. As Spidey, he has the power to sense danger, crawl walls, has super strength and super agility, and is armed with spider tracers, a powerful light on his belt, and artificial webbing. Mary-Jane Watson: MJ is a gorgeous red head that has always lived next door to Peter, but doesn't actually meet him until their blind date. After breif on-again off-again relationships with both Peter and Harry Osborn, she eventually marries Peter. Unfortunately, after a battle with the Green Goblin, she disappears, and the one who returns may not necessarily be who she thinks she is. Although she's always the enemies' first target, she remains safe due to the work of Spider-Man. Aunt May: Aunt May is Peter's elderly aunt. She's been taking care of Peter since his parents passed away when he was young. She always supports Peter when he is in need, and Peter does the same. J. Jonah Jameson: Old JJ is the grumpy-yet-quick witted editor of the Daily Bugle. For some reason, he has always hated Spidey, considering him a "menace". Eventually, it is revealed that his wife was gunned down by a masked man, which may explain his hate toward Spider-Man--a masked man. He also has a son, John Jameson, an astronaut. Felicia Hardy/Black Cat: Felicia began as the rich and sometimes spoiled daughter of the Hardys'. She and Peter once dated (pretty impressive on Peter's part), but her life changed dramatically when she discovered that her dad was once a spy called "The Cat". When she got involved with his past, she was caught in an experiment that trasformed her into an agile, strong beauty called "The Black Cat". She now occasionally accompanies Spidey whenever he needs her, but her real interest is her love Micheal Morbius, who now fights vampires alongside Blade. Harry Osborn: Wealthy son of industrialist Norman Osborn, Harry is one of Peter's best friends. He seems somewhat wimpy at first, but he has dark secrets. He has dated Mary-Jane and shared an apartment with Peter. He later becomes the next Green Goblin (see below). Robbie Robertson: Robbie works at the Bugle with Peter, and is JJ's right hand man. He is married with one son, who occasionally gets in trouble, but overall he has a happy, strong family. Despite his boss's beliefs, he always stands up for both Spidey and Peter. Dr. Curt Connors: Dr. Connors is a brilliant scientist who works with neogenics. Because of a war injury, he only has one arm. He always helps Spidey when in need, sometimes even when he may be in danger. He has a wife and one young son, both of which who have his back. Dr. Connors also shares the alterrnate identity as the Lizard (see below). Enemy Bios Dr. Otto Octavius/Dr. Octopus: Dr. Otto was a very good and smart scientist, but when and experiment goes wrong he becomes eight-handed Dr. Octopus. He is one of Spider-Man's most deadly villains. Wilson Fisk/Kingpin: Wilson Fisk is the notorious crime-boss also known as Kingpin. He is cause of almost everything that is going wrong when he is around. Him and his "Henchmen" will do anything to destroy Spider-Man. Eddie Brock/Venom: Eddie Brock used to be the Daily Bugle's best reporters, that is, until Spider-Man continued to humiliate him. He was subsequently fired from his job and blamed Spider-Man for it. Later, Brock comes in contact with Spider-Man's black costume and takes on the new persona of Venom. As Venom, Brock possesses all of Spider-Man's powers, minus spider-sense, but to a much higher degree. Cletus Kassidy/Carnage: When Venom's symbiote spawned, it found the perfect owner: serial killer/psychopath Cletus Kassidy. Kassidy's insane mind is what powers the almost invincible alter-ego of Carnage. Though he has most of the same weaknesses of Venom, his powers involve morphing his hands into blades, shooting out sharp symbiote knives, and much more. He enjoys agitating Venom by calling him "Dad". Norman Osborn/Green Goblin I: Norman is the wealthy industrialist that owns "Oscorp". He has a rigid relationship with his son, Harry. After being exposed to toxic chemicals, Norman gains enhanced strength, but the chemicals also cause his sanity to erode away. When he becomes paranoid and close to insane, he dawns the Green Goblin armor, a hi-tech suit equipped with super bombs, a powerful glider, a who knows what else. He is one of Spider-Man's toughest foes, mainly emotionally, because his son is one of Peter's best friends. Harry Osborn/Green Goblin II: After the disappearance of his father, Harry is haunted by nightmares and hallucinations--and his inner demons are released. Somehow his father reaches him from the other dimension, and leads him to the Goblin gear, where he becomes the next Green Goblin, with the same suit and technology as the previous one. He blames Spider-Man for the "death" of his father, and will stop at nothing to get revenge. Mac Gargan/The Scorpion: Mac Gargan was hired by Jameson to spy on Peter Parker to find out how he gets those spectacular shots of Spider-Man. After failing miserably at it, Jameson comes up with a better use for Gargan...by subjecting him to a process similar to how Spider-Man got his powers. Gargan was bombarded by radiation and scorpion DNA, and emerged as the natural enemy of the spider. Thus, the Scorpion was born. The radiation began to slowly drive the Scorpion mad, and now seeks a way to turn himself back to normal. Dr. Curt Connors/The Lizard: After trying to grow his severed arm back by using Lizard DNA, Dr. Connors accidentally transforms himself into the ravenous, bloodthirsty, Lizard monster. Now he transforms into it whenever he is angry, but as long as he stays calm, he can control the beast within.moreless

    FOX (ended 1999)
    Millennium was a television series that premiered on Friday October 25, 1996. The series was Chris Carter's much anticipated follow-up to the very popular The X-Files. Millennium focused on the work of ex-FBI profiler Frank Black, who had retired but was brought back in as a consultant. Frank had a special ability to see into the minds of serial killers and to get into their heads. He also worked for a mysterious organization called the Millennium Group which seemed to take a special interest in serial killers and end of the world prophecy. In the first season, Frank lived in Seattle with his wife Catherine and daughter Jordan. The show focused on Frank's work as a profiler. He spent most of his time in the first season trying to solve serial murder cases. During the second season, the show primarily on Frank's relationship with the Millennium Group. He separated from his wife after his violent rescue of her from a stalker. Frank learned that the Millennium Group was a secret society that believed that the world was coming to an end. During that season, Frank spent much of his time working with Millennium Group member Peter Watts and fellow investigator Laura Means. After the death of his wife at the end of the second season, Frank severed all connection with the Millennium Group and returned to work with the FBI. With the help of special agent Emma Hollis, he began to investigate the Millennium Group itself. The show changes direction again this season, however much of the long term questions that were raised during the first two seasons are answered. The show was canceled at the end of the third season, with an unfinished ending. In later 1999, the show received a conclusion of sorts in a crossover with The X-files entitled "Millennium." However very little closure is brought by this episode. There is however as of late rumors that Millennium may be brought back as a movie of some kind in the near future and finish the story. Show Type: Mystery/Thriller/Horror As of late, there has been some speculation in 2008 about the possibility of a "Millennium Movie" however, it is not know how likely this is yet. First Telecast: October 25, 1996 Last Telecast: May 21, 1999 Episodes: In total 67 Color Episodes (67 one-hour episodes, 6 two-part episode) were produced.

    FOX (ended 2001)
    This series is a spin off of the Spider-man show in 1994. Hijacking a space shuttle to save John Jameson, who crash-landed on another planet as the result of Venom and Carnage attacking his ship during its flight into space, Spider-Man ends up stranded on Counter-Earth, an Earth-like planet in the same orbit on the other side of the sun. On Counter-Earth, he finds a high-tech society where humanoid animals, also known as beastials, rule under the leadership of the High Evolutionary, while humans, the minorities, are seen as second class citizens and must be "tagged" with tracking devices that prevent them from attempting to rebel against the beastials. If that wasn't bad enough, Venom and Carnage are about, having their minds set on global domintation through the help of the Synoptic - a hivemind producing spores that turn people into its mindless slaves. This series ended on a cliffhanger, as Marvel's bankruptcy brought the show to an unexpected end after the first season. Six episodes were produced for the second season, including a conclusion to the first season's finale (which was intended to be a multi-part episode), but never aired. There are currently no plans for a home video release, although Disney has acquired the rights to air and release episodes of the series.moreless

    "I am the wild blue yonder. The front line in a never-ending battle between good... and not-so good. Together, with my stalwart sidekick, Arthur, and the magnanimous help of some other folks I know, we form the yin to villainy's malevolent yang. Destiny has chosen us. Wicked men! You face...The Tick!" The life of a superhero is not easy. There are not enough dangers. However, someone must fight evil and protect good. The few who face this challenge have to leave behind comfort, security and a little sanity. Jumping from roof to roof in one single jump, the mysterious blue justice defender The Tick (Patrick Warburton) patrols The City, and his limited knowledge of human life doesn't interfere with his desire to protect society. The frustrated and well-behaved accountant known as Arthur (David Burke) left his job to join The Tick as The Moth, and now they're a crime-fighting duo. Arthur has always secretly wished being a superhero. Well, not so secretly, since he used his moth outfit (which looks more like a bunny) to work. On this fight against injustice, The Tick also counts on Batmanuel (Nestor Carbonell), a Latino superhero who never promotes himself without a worthy cause. His kryptonite is Captain Liberty (Liz Vassey), the government's number one weapon on the battle against supervillains. The Tick is based on the 'cult' comic character created by Ben Edlund. There was an animated version a few years ago. Check it out here. Originally planned as a 2000-2001 midseason replacement after The Simpsons on Sunday nights, and apparently never thought of as anything more than strike filler for a writer's strike which never happened, FOX toppers Sandy Grushow and Gail Berman changed their minds, keeping Malcolm in the Middle in the slot for another year and pushing The Tick back to fall. When The Tick finally went on the air, it was dumped on Thursdays. They didn't promote it very much, and needless to say, it didn't last very long.moreless

    FOX (ended 1998)
    When the planet of Zenn-La comes under attack by Galactus, a cosmic entity obsessed with satisfying his undying hunger by consuming planets abundant with life, a man known as Norrin Radd bargains to stop him. He offers to help find planets fit for consumption yet not containing life. Galactus accepts the offer and empowers him with the power cosmic, as well as removing the memories of his humanity, thus creating the Silver Surfer. The Surfer serves as the faithful servant to Galactus until a confrontation with the evil Thanos awakens his memories of his home planet and his love Shalla Bal. After defending Earth from Galactus, the Surfer is allowed to go out on his own only to discover that an angry Galactus has moved Zenn-La into an unknown area of space. Now facing isolation, hatred from those whose planets he helped destroy, and an ever-present threat from Galactus, the Silver Surfer roams through space seeking out his home and helping those he meets along the way. Silver Surfer had aired on Saturdays on Fox Kids. It only lasted one season with 13 episodes. A second season was planned, with 8 episodes already written, but was canceled because of bankruptcy.moreless

    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

    Kindred: The Embraced was a prime-time drama by Aaron Spelling that revolved around the lives and loves of the clan-based vampire society of San Francisco. The series was inspired by the role-playing game Vampire: the Masquerade by Mark Rein Hagen but took many liberties such as allowing vampires who have recently fed to withstand sunlight. The many changes from the source material alienated some fans of the game, and the series never found its mainstream audience, ending after only seven episodes had aired.moreless

    FOX (ended 2005)
    Something Wicked Has Washed Ashore... Something wicked this way comes to Point Pleasant, a usually quiet New Jersey beach town, when a sudden, violent storm washes in more than the tide. After local lifeguard JESSE PARKER (Sam Page) sees the beautiful CHRISTINA NICKSON (Elisabeth Harnois) floating in the ocean, he dives into the dangerous waters to save her life and bring her to safety. Little does Jesse know that his heroic rescue heralds the beginning of a battle between good and evil. Jesse brings Christina to the home of DR. BEN (Richard Burgi) and MEG KRAMER (Susan Walters), whose reclusive daughter JUDY (Aubrey Dollar) takes an instant liking to their new houseguest. The Kramers have seen their share of hardship – their youngest daughter passed away a couple of years ago – and Christina appears to bring light back into their house. For Christina, Point Pleasant offers both a respite from her protected boarding-school existence in New York, and the opportunity to search for her long-lost mother, a Point Pleasant native. Unbeknownst to Christina, her arrival in Point Pleasant has a profound effect on the small seaside community. Her presence awakens repressed feelings, unlocks suppressed desires and heightens emotions among the residents. Tensions flare between Jesse and best friend TERRY BURKE (Brent Weber), who secretly pines for Jesse’s possessive girlfriend, PAULA HARGROVE (Cameron Richardson). Paula’s hot-to-trot mother, AMBER (Dina Meyer), attempts to rekindle her relationship with the good Dr. Kramer, her childhood sweetheart. Even the strong love between Jesse’s parents, Police Captain LOGAN (Alex Carter) and church-going SARAH PARKER (Clare Carey), is tested, especially when the mysterious and charismatic LUCAS BOYD (Grant Show), a man with ties to Christina’s father, moves into town and begins to insinuate himself into Christina’s new life. As Christina and Jesse fight their budding attraction, Christina enlists Jesse’s help to search for answers to her family’s past, all the while trying to suppress the evil inside her – and the power that comes with it. While Christina never knew her mother, she will come to realize that she’s never known her “real” father, either. Christina is the offspring of a mortal woman and the Devil – and the battle for her soul has begun. Point Pleasant is a 20th Century Fox Television Production. Marti Noxon ("Angel,” “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”), Marty Adelstein, Dawn Parouse ("Tru Calling") and Neal Moritz serve as executive producers. Point Pleasant was canceled after eight airings, but the complete first season of thirteen episodes is now available on DVD.moreless
