    Highway to Heaven was Micheal Landon's second pairing with Victor French (the two both starred on Little House on the Prairie). This show was about Jonathan Smith, an angel sent down by God, aka "The Boss," to partner up with ex-Oakland cop Mark Gordon. They would be assigned duties by the Boss in which they would help people see a better life, and sometimes help each other. The show ran for 5 years on NBC. Each episode began with clips of that episode. Then the sky would fill with a heavenly shot of clouds. The clouds would fade away, and the soothing theme music would begin to play, and the highway to heaven was open to all. The show ran for a seemingly short five seasons and is shown today in reruns on the Goodlife TV Network (Monday through Friday 1 p.m. EST and 7 p.m. EST) (Also, it will show on TVLand, every day at 8pm EST.

    NBC (ended 1973)
    Night Gallery was creator-host Rod Serling's follow-up to The Twilight Zone. Set in a shadowy museum of the outre, Serling weekly unveiled disturbing portraiture as preface to a highly diverse anthology of tales in the fantasy-horror vein. Bolstering Serling's thoughtful original dramas were adaptations of classic genre material--short stories by such luminaries as H. P. Lovecraft, Fritz Leiber, A.E. van Vogt, Algernon Blackwood, Conrad Aiken, Richard Matheson, August Derleth, and Christianna Brand. Variety of material brought with it a variety of tone, from the deadly serious to the tongue-in-cheek, stretching the television anthology concept to its very limits. (CREW INFORMATION SUPPLEMENT: Jaroslav Gebr was the artist for the pilot film's three gallery paintings. For the series, all of the gallery canvases were painted by Tom Wright. The gallery's metal sculptures were created by Phil Vanderlei and Logan Elston. Most episodes contained multiple story segments. For the listing of episode credits, crew information is listed under the primary story segment except where a production aspect--music, cinematography--differs among the segments.)moreless

    Welcome to the Thriller guide at TV.com. This hour-long anthology series was hosted by Boris Karloff, who each week brought you a tale of spine-tingling suspense. Karloff would open each episode with a brief onscreen appearance (in the tradition of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents"), setting the scene for the story to follow and introducing us to the cast. Occasionally the hour was divided into two or sometimes even three separate tales, and Boris Karloff himself acted in several episodes. The earlier entries lean more towards straight mystery and suspense, while later shows deal directly with horror and the occult.moreless

    NBC (ended 1988)
    "When people told themselves their past with stories, explained their present with stories, foretold the future with stories, the best place by the fire was kept for the storyteller." The Storyteller, shown in 1988, starred John Hurt as the Storyteller and with the help of Jim Henson's Workshop of muppets, actors, voices and costumes as well as visual effects, brought a new dimension to television. Nine stories were shown in this series, which was followed a few years later by Jim Henson's The Storyteller: Greek Myths. This series was to feature some of Britain's finest actors of the time and some who would propel themselves into the international limelight within the next few years. Sean Bean, Jane Horrocks, Brenda Blethyn, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, Joely Richardson, Bob Peck, Alison Doody, Gabrielle Anwar, Jonathan Pryce and Miranda Richardson all appeared during the show's short run. The real stars of each episode, however, are The Storyteller and his dog, voiced by Brian Henson. Please note that the synopses in the episode list and the episode guide detail most or all of the story for that episode and will spoil the shows if you are planning on watching.moreless

    The Snorks

    Follow
    NBC (ended 1989)
    The Snorks were very much like their competitors The Smurfs, except that they live under the sea. The premise for the show was quite elaborate: In 1643, the captain of a ship under pirate attack discovered a tiny race of beings that lived underwater. After reaching the surface, the rescued captain shared his story of Snorks with a disbelieving world, while underneath the waves, an excited Snork by the name of Uncle Galeo was spreading the word about the surface dwellers. Cut to modern day, where the Snorks have evolved much like humans, living in similar houses and eating similar foods. The main characters of the series were teenager Allstar, his girlfriend Casey, and their pals Dimmy, Daffney and Tooter (so named because he only spoke in whistles). As one would expect, Allstar also had a wacky pet and a rival. The pet was an octopus, logically named Occy, while the rival was Junior Wetworth, the spoiled son of the governor of Snorkland. While The Snorks were an obvious attempt to cash in on the success of The Smurfs, the series was not without its own charm. Specifically, the relationship between the Snorks and the surface dwellers was very well designed, with the humans being drawn in a more traditional style to play up their "otherworldly" differences. Also, The Snorks succeeded in concentrating more on humor than on cuteness, taking the show beyond the level of mere Smurf-imitator. Snorks currently air everyday on Boomerang in the US.moreless

    NBC (ended 1991)
    In 1966, the gothic soap opera Dark Shadows premiered on ABC and ran for 5 years, making exactly 1,225 episodes. Today, it is known as one of the most popular cult classics of all time. In 1991, Dan Curtis remade the show as a weekly prime-time drama. NBC bought the series and aired it mid-season 1991. The series wasn't up to NBC's standards in ratings, so the network cancelled the show after only twelve one-hour episodes.

    Dark Shadows: The Revival Series remade most of the beginning storylines and the episodes that transported Victoria Winters back to 1790 (in the original series, Victoria went back to 1795). The series starts with the resurrection of Barnabas Collins, who was released from his coffin by Willie Loomis, the bumbling caretaker on a quest for legendary family riches. Dr. Julia Hoffman attempts to cure his vampirism, and release him from the curse that Angelique Bouchard put on him two hundred years earlier. Later on, Victoria is transported to 1790 during a séance in which the Collins family was trying to contact Barnabas' sister, Sarah, who died in 1790. Trapped in the past, Victoria becomes the governess of Sarah and Daniel Collins, and the governess who was hired to tutor the children, Phyllis Wick, has taken Victoria's place in 1991. Victoria stays in 1790 for a while, and many people accuse her of being a witch for knowledge of the future and many other things. She is put on trial and Peter Bradford (her first friend in 1790 Collinsport) tries to save her from being hanged.moreless

    Welcome to The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! guide at TV.com. Cartoon Summary The Mario Bros.; Mario and Luigi, were two plumbers from Brooklyn. On one of their plumbing jobs, they were in the middle of unclogging a bathtub drainpipe. Without any warning, the drain suddenly pulled the brothers in, and warped them to the Mushroom Kingdom. Upon their arrival, they rescued Princess Peach Toadstool and Toad from King Bowser Koopa and his army. Although Princess Toadstool and Toad are now safe, the Koopas are still at large. On top of that, the warp zone leading to Brooklyn had closed. It's up to Mario and Luigi to not only liberate the Mushroom World from King Koopa, but to find a way back to Brooklyn. Live Action Summary Set after the events of the Donkey Kong games, but prior to the events of the cartoon, this portion of the show shows us how Mario and Luigi used to live, running their plumbing shop in Brooklyn. Their friends include Radigator and Edison the Electrician, not to mention the many guest stars that come to visit. The Theme Song: Plumber's Rap Hey paisanos!

Character Guide Mario Mario The main character, and unofficial leader of the heroes. Being a plumber, he can can do just about anything that involves plumbing, and he can use plumbing tools for a lot more than just plumbing! Mario also has a huge taste for Italian food. On this show, he and Luigi got sucked down a drain in Brookyln which took them to the Mushroom Kingdom, and now they have to find their way home. Luigi Mario Mario's younger brother. Although he tends to have a more cowardly attitude towards danger than Mario, he's probably the saner of the two. Unfortunately for Luigi, the others tend to treat him like a fall boy, causing him to end up doing a lot of dirty work. Like his bro, he's a plumbing pro, and he has a fondness for Italian cuisine. Princess Peach Toadstool She's the ruler of the Mushroom Kingdom, which has been taken over by the Koopas. She's also the most reasonable thinker of the group. She and the Marios have to find a way to stop the Koopas so she can reclaim her kingdom. NOTE: On the cartoons, she was never called Peach, so the guide will usually refer to her as Princess or sometimes Princess Toadstool for continuity's sake. Please refer to her as Princess in your submissions. Toad Princess' assistant. Toad often has a lot to say, and usually cracks jokes here and there. Though he doesn't look like he's capable of much, he's proven he can pull through when things get tough, and is often fairly resourceful. King Bowser Koopa The leader of the Koopa Troop is big, bad, and proud of it. He's friends with no one, and even his henchmen are treated poorly by him. However, he does have a sense of humor, and it shows. His goal in life is to conquer the Mushroom World, one land at a time. He usually hangs out with either Mouser, Triclyde, a Troopa, or sometimes all three of them. In many episodes, he will don a costume and go by a different name, usually just for the heck of it. NOTE: On this show, he was never called Bowser, so the guide will usually refer to him as Koopa for continuity's sake. Please refer to him as Koopa in your submissions. Important Notes for Submitting information: Episode Recap: An episode recap should be VERY detailed, almost narrating the episode. One should be able to read a recap and have as much knowledge of the episode as someone who saw the episode. We encourage you to submit an episode recap if you able to watch any episode. Episode Notes: Notes should provide key information in little bullet points. But I still want all notes in complete sentences. Goofs: Goofs should follow the same format as Notes.
