    FOX (ended 1996)
    People say I'm... lucky. It all began in a plane crash thirty years ago. One hundred and six lives ending in a single heartbeat. No one survived... except me.

    A photojournalist named Chance Harper (D.B. Sweeney) who, as a child, was the sole survivor of an airplane crash, finds himself in the wrong place at the right time. Saving other lives while risking his own, he has incredibly good,incredibly bad, incredibly "Strange Luck." Sadly, the show lasted for only 17 episodes. Although it developed a fan base, it still didn't help for the show to return for season two.moreless

    Jennifer Coolidge (Bobbie Morganstern on "Joey") has booked the final principal role in the comedy pilot, about a diverse group of people who live at a temporary housing complex in Los Angeles. She'll play the mother of Zac Efron's character in the project. Her character, Sherry, is described in the casting notice as follows: "Mid 30s-early 40s. Sherry is a fun, impulsive single mom with a flair for the dramatic. She has raised her sixteen years old son, Cody, all by herself, and has worked hard to give him everything he could ask for and more; he has no idea that she has made her living as stripper, and she would die before letting him find out. She is fiercely protective of him, but also close enough in age-both literally and emotionally to be his friend. Fun and adventurous, she's full of big dreams and infectious optimism." While not specified, Coolidge's involvement is likely in second position to her duties on "Joey." Boris Kodjoe, Cameron Richardson, Reg Rogers and Michael Simpson also star in the CBS Paramount Network Television-based half-hour, which Peter Lauer is directing from a script by creators Ted Cohen and Andrew Reich.moreless

    Spider-Man Unlimited

    Follow
    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

    FOX (ended 1997)
    In the year 400 A.D., a young Irish man, Conor, sets out to rid his land of the invading Romans, but in order to accomplish it, he must unite the Celtic clans. Roar chronicles the extraordinary life of a reluctant 20-year-old orphaned Prince who is forced to rise above tragedy to lead his people to freedom. Conor's allies include his trusted advisor, Galen (a wise man who possesses the secrets of magic and power), Tully (a cocky teenage troublemaker), Catlin (a beautiful former slavegirl but now a fearful fighter) and Fergus (Conor's devoted protector). Their enemy is Longinus, appearingly a normal 30-year-old man but who is actually the 400-year-old Roman Centurion sorceror of the evil Queen Diana. In this fight for freedom, what's most important for Conor and his people is the Roar - the roar of the land, the roar of the people - a voice that echoes through every living creature and is the power of life. OPENING CREDITS: The opening credits had the following voiceovers: Long ago, at the edge of the known world the last Celtic tribes were fighting for survival. Europe had fallen to the Romans and this remote and untamed island was the final stronghold of the Ancient ways. and 400 AD, in a land of a hundred warring tribes, a young prince comes of age. Having lost his family and the woman he cherished, he has sworn to unite his people and defend his home. Bent on destroying him is a Roman Queen, Diana and her eternal love, Longinus, a 400 year old man who cannot die. Between history and myth a great battle will be waged, in the name of a timeless power called ... THE ROAR! FILMING LOCATION: The series was filmed entirely on location in Queensland, Australia. BROADCASTING: 13 episodes were produced and filmed, but only 8 were originially aired in the United States on Fox. The complete series was aired in other countries throughout the world until finally in April 2003, a U.S. channel (the Sci-Fi Channel) picked up all 13 episodes.moreless

    Beetleborgs

    Beetleborgs

    Follow
    FOX (ended 1998)
    This guide covers the program known as "Saban's Big Bad Beetleborgs" (in its first season) and "Saban's Beetleborgs Metallix" (in its second and final season). It was the third "companion series" to the Power Rangers franchise, and eventually rose in ratings to point it was number 1 in all key demographics. The show was about three typical pre-teen kids, Drew, Roland, and Jo, living in the city of Charterville, where they tend to hang out as Roland's father's comic book store, Zoom Comics. One day, on a dare, the trio entered the local haunted house (known as Hillhurst Mansion), and encounter a gang of crazy gang, child-hugry monsters! While trying to escape, they bumped into a pipe organ, accidentally freeing a wacky blue phasm by the name Flabber. As thanks for releasing him from his prison, he gave them a wish, which they were unanimous on: the kids wanted to be their favorite comic book superheroes - the Beetleborgs! But in fulfilling their wish, Flabber accidentally releases the Beetleborgs' enemies, the evil Magnavores, from the comic book world as well. Now the kids, as the armored, insect-powered, (adult-) cyborg warriors called the Beetleborgs, must defend their city from the Magnavores, which include Noxic, Jara, Typhus and their boss, Vexor, as they release evil creatures also out of any issue of the comics. The comic arsenal is also at the kids' disposal, including powerful weapons and three giant fighting machines known as the Beetle A.V.s. The shy but courageous Drew takes the form of the Blue Stinger Beetleborg (and later, the Chromium Gold Beetleborg). He also has the civilian ability of telekinetic powers. Jo, his tomboyish younger sister (who later goes through a change of actresses due to a magic spell gone bad), is the Red Striker (and later Platinum Purple) Beetleborg, and has the civilian ability of super-strength. And the budding magician Roland is the Green Hunter Beetleborg (and later, the Titanium Silver Beetleborg), with super-speed as his civilian ability. Then in "BeetleBorgs Metallix", Art Fortunes, creator of the Beetleborgs comics, creates better and more powerful armor for the heroes, to combat a new line of evil which are created by Art's criminal insane brother, Les Fortunes! His creation of Nukus, Horribelle, Vilor, and their Crustaceans are the new enemies of these new Metallix-powered Beetleborgs. The supporting cast includes Flabber's child-hungry roommates, known as the House Monsters (which include vampiric Count Fangula, tightly-wound Mums, dim-witted Frankenbeans, incomprehensable Wolfgang, and later the fiesty Little Ghoul); Roland's butt-kicking, bike-riding grandmother Nano; Roland's Zoom Comics-owning father Aaron (and later his mother, Abby); Heather, a pretty young girl who works at Zoom and Drew has a major crush on; and Van & Trip, two millionaire brats who tend to bully around the kids. Big Bad Beetleborgs was adapted from the 1995 Toei Metal Hero program, "Juukou Bii Faitaa (Heavy Armor B-Fighter). Beetleborgs Metallix was adapted from the 1996 Toei Metal Hero program, "Bii Faitaa Kabuto" (B-Fighter Kabuto). The series aired Mondays to Fridays, and Saturday mornings, on the Fox Kids block of the Fox network, from its inception, until the fall of 1998, when reruns of it moved to the UPN Kids block of the United Paramount Network. It has not aired in the USA since 1999, though continues to run in other countries, most notably the United Kingdom. The series ended due to two major factors: Toei stopped production of its Metal Hero series, meaning no series to adapt for a third season (which was tentatively titled Beetleborgs Force), which would have meant much higher production costs. And secondly, Saban Entertainment needed to free up more money to fund the Ireland co-production Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. The toy line even continued after the show ended its run! Beetleborgs (both seasons) was a production of Renaissance-Atlantic Films. A co-production of Toei Company, LTD. and Bugboy Productions, Inc. And copyrighted by Saban Entertainment, Inc. and Saban International, N.V. (which is now owned by Disney, and goes by the name of BVS Entertainment, Inc.) (One last FYI: Shannon "Jo #1" Chandler and Elisabeth "Heather" Lund were nominated for "Best Performance by a Young Actress in a Saturday Morning TV Program" at the YoungStar Awards for the series)moreless

    FOX (ended 1997)
    Welcome to the Ned and Stacey guide at TV Tome. The idea may not have been totally original--a man and a woman who can't stand each other enter a marriage of convenience--but the execution of Ned and Stacey makes it one of the most truly underappreciated sitcom classics of all time. Besides having first-class writing, N&S feaures eye-opening performances from its lead characters. Thomas Haden Church, best known as Lowell on Wings, created a different persona for himself and his impeccable and uncanny comic timing is a joy to watch. Debra Messing is just about perfect in her role as Stacey, and many will find her performances here even more fun to watch than her later role on Will & Grace. Greg Germann (later to be seen on Ally McBeal) and Nadia Dajani do not let down the show's high standard in their supporting roles. After the show's initial run on the Fox network, Ned and Stacey became an integral part of the USA Network's "USAM" comedy lineup, as it was on and off that network from 1998 until April 2001, gaining new popularity as it caught the eye of many a viewer who never saw it in the first place, including many Will & Grace fans who were curious to see this earlier incarnation of Grace Adler played by Debra Messing. After that, N&S junkies were out of luck, waiting and hoping that some network would pick up the 46 episodes of the show and begin showing them again. Then, on October 20, 2003, to our great delight, the cable channel WE (Women's Entertainment) began running the program again. It was Ned and Stacey heaven for their fans until late July 2004, when the network abruptly stopped running the show. We can only hope that some channel somewhere in the US will pick up the series once again. Until then, we'll just have to rely on memories. We hope this guide will help. If we hear of its return, we'll let you know, and you let us know if you hear anything first. If you have any questions about the data herein, e-mail me at Procyon3001@aol.com Pictured L-R: Nadia Dajani, Greg Germann, Thomas Haden Church, Debra Messing N&S showing in UK As of October 2004, Ned and Stacey can be seen by viewers in Great Britain on the Paramount Comedy channel. It's on every day at 2:30PM with repeats at 12:05AM, apparently! N&S in Australia TV Tome users tell us starting December 1, 2004, Ned and Stacey will be broadcast weekdays at 10PM, Australian EST, on the cable network Foxtel on TV1.moreless

    Quicktime Crash-landing on a mountain side, THE VISITOR (formally Adam MacArthur) mysteriously emerges from the wreckage of the downed craft, seemingly unhurt. His sudden appearance creates a manhunt by opposing national security departments (including the FBI, headed by Douglas Wilcox, and the NSA, headed by Colonel James Vise), each with its own agenda to find out who Adam is, how he survived, and why he returned. It appears that Adam, missing in action since World War II, is still the young man he was 50 years ago prior to disappearing into the Bermuda Triangle. Adam eludes his pursuers by finding refuge with Nadine and Tyler Walden, a single mother and her 13-year-old son.
