    Follow
    NBC (ended 1991)
    This action adventure series was a joint effort from Disney and Steven J. Cannell productions. AKA: Disney Presents The 100 Lives of Black Jack Savage ========================== Summary 1: The story goes that Black Jack Savage a 17th century pirate was hung in the courtyard of his castle for his treacherous deeds, in order for him to escape hell he must save a life for every one he's taken. Now in modern day NY surfaces another Pirate of sorts "Barry Tarberry", he's been bad, swindiling the IRS out of funds and they want him, now to escape his purgatory Barry flies out of the country to a little island that will grant him immunity called San Pietro. He buys an estate, sight unseen that just happened to belong to Black Jack Savage. The ghost wants to strike a deal with Barry, for every life saved Barry can have half credit toward his own impending fate- the agreement sealed the 2 pirates start trying to save lives on this small carribean island. ====================== Summary 2: Long ago the evil pirate Black Jack Savage ruled over the sea. However, he was finally captured and was hanged for his crimes in the courtyard of his own castle. Years later Barry Tarberry, a world famous millionaire and ruthless man has been charged with stock market fraud. To escape his crime he comes to a small island paradise. Only to soon discover he's trapped with all his accounts seized by the government. He now has only an old castle the locals believe is haunted. To Barry's dismay, the owner of the castle is the only one able to see Black Jack Savage, who is living on another spiritual plain until he saves 100 lives for those he killed. Jack tells Barry that he is heading for the same fate unless he too saves lives with Jack. Barry and Jack work together keeping the secret from the entire island, who now believe he is crazy. In the process Barry falls in love with Danielle, who cares more for her people than a love sick man. Also there is Logan "FX" Murphy, the local inventor, who once worked for the government. He wants only to be payed but Barry strings him along for the ride. Barry and Jack bring the bad in and make the island safe for all again ========================== Filming Location: Florida, USA ========================== The Disney production THE 100 LIVES OF BLACK JACK SAVAGE/NBC/1991 told the tale of Black Jack Savage (Steven Williams), the ghost of a legendary 17th century Caribbean pirate who was teamed with Barry Tarberry (Daniel Hugh-Kelly), a crooked Wall Street wheeler-dealer who both needed to save 100 souls to compensate for the damage done by their sinful life. Unfortunately, once Black Jack left the safety of his castle haunt on San Pietro Island, he was fair game for the Snarks (who could transport Jack back to Hell through an entrance at the base the tree where he was originally hung). To battle the Snarks both Black Jack and his human counterpart Tarberry teamed up to defeat these hellish spirits so they could get about saving souls and thus win their way into salvation. Aiding them in their mission was inventor Logan "F.X." Murphy (Steve Hytner) who fashioned a "snark buster" (resembling a vacuum cleaner) to ward off these sniveling, soul snatching netherworld nuisances. Logan called the machine a "Proton Ion Positive Negative Field Adjuster." A con-artist millionaire to salvage souls of others in exchange for their own redemption from perdition. ====================== The Blackbird - The high-tech speedboat on the fantasy adventure THE 100 LIVES OF BLACK JACK SAVAGE/NBC/1991. The Blackbird was built by scientist inventor Logan "FX" Murphy (Steve Hytner) from the body of a SR71 spy plane to help his friend Barry Tarberry (Daniel Hugh-Kelly) battle crime around the Caribbean islands. The Blackbird moored at a secret dock at Blackbird Castle on San Pietro Island. The speedboat took its name from a pirate ship once captained by a 17th century buccaneer named Black Jack Savage (now a ghost who joined forces with Barry to win his way into heaven). =============== Production Companies * Stephen J.

Maybe she does push too hard when it comes to trying to straighten out people's lives, but the one group capable of benching her honor is her own children. Sydney's biggest challenges often arise when she must lay down the law, or exercise a little leniency, at home with her kids: Mike, a reluctant college student intent on taking a non-academic route to finding himself; sardonic 16-year-old Neal; computer-obsessed, 13-year-old Marshall who communicates with his dad on the Internet; and hyperactive, 11-year-old Ellis.moreless

    In this short-lived attempt to revive Carol Burnett's TV career in the early '90s, the approach was a little different from earlier series. This time Burnett would take on a different persona each week, and each installment resembled a sitcom episode. As always, the "company" of background performers appeared as different characters each week, with special guests dropping in from time to time. Some episodes featured Jeremy Piven as a member of the company, who was later replaced with Peter Krause. Meagen Fay and Richard Kind went on to appear in Burnett's next series, "The Carol Burnett Show" (1991).moreless

    "Tony Danza (Who's the Boss?) returns to television as a divorced sportswriter raising two teenaged daughters in this charming comedy." "Tony DiMeo (Tony Danza) misses the old days. The days when he could bang out his sports column on a noisy typewriter. The days when athletes were role models, not millionaires. The days when kids always listened to their parents. Well, two out of three. These days, Tony has an assistant, computer- whiz Carmen, to get his column e-mailed successfully to his editor. And sports - well, it seems no one cares about the game anymore. Plus, Tony's raising moody Tina (16) and hypochondriac Mickey (13) on his own since his wife took the "job of a lifetime" and moved out of state. It's a challenging life, to say the least." "More often than not, Tony's overwhelmed by all the women in his life - it's hard to be a man's man when he's surrounded by estrogen. But despite Tina's tantrums, Mickey's illnesses, and Tony's frequent technological breakdowns, the DiMeo family is never short on love. When Tony feels like it's bottom of the ninth, bases loaded and he's at bat with two strikes, he just looks at his DiMeo team in the dugout and knows everything will work out fine." (NBC press release) NBC's entertainment president at the time, Warren Littlefield, gave the series a 22 episode commitment based on Tony Danza's name alone. He then proceeded to debut it in a tough time slot with no lead-in smack in the middle of NBC's coverage of the World Series -- which would be preempting it every other week its first month on the air. Gee, and it's a mystery why it lasted as long as it did? The final 8 episodes out of that 22 were not produced. The Tony Danza Show is produced by Katie Face Productions / Kokoro Productions / NBC Studios, in association with Columbia TriStar Television.

    NBC (ended 1994)
    This would be daytime television's last network game show, until 15 years later when CBS will replace Guiding Light with Let's Make A Deal. Taped @ Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada, Ahmad Rashad hosted this anagram word game where three contestants (sometimes a returning champion) played. The object was to guess scrambled up words. However, you must answer a question before picking a letter. The person who answers correctly picks a letter where it's inserted in the right position. Then the player had 5 seconds to guess the word, otherwise play resumed. The first round had 7 letter words where correct questions paid $100 & solving the word paid $100 per letter. Round 2 had 8 letter words; $200 & Round 3 had 9 letter words; $300. Also, one of the letters was considered the "Lucky Slot"! Place that letter & guess the word, you won a $500 (or better) bonus in addition. The Lucky Slot always started @ $500 @ the start of the game & grew $500 per play when it wasn't solved. One contestant hit every Lucky Slot (driving Rashad crazy in the process with all those sirens) & ending up winning $20,700! If time was short, the car horn off Hollywood Squares (Davidson) was heard. A speed round was played & the Lucky Slot was out of play. The winner got some merchandise prizes & got to face Caesar's Challenge. BONUS ROUND 1: 200 big balls from a Keno cage containing letters were released. Dan Doherty called the letters out & once the producers found a 9-letter certified dictionary word, the gong sounded followed by the announcement of "CAESAR SAYS STOP"! Depending on how many days the champ has won, the champ got to place letter(s) into the right slot. Then had 10 seconds to solve the word. The correct solve earned that player a new car & retire undefeated! If not, the champ came back to defend the championship. Winning words included "CAFETERIA" & "GONDOLIER" (from that same lucky contestant). BONUS ROUND 2: The player had 30 seconds to solve 5 anagram words. The first word had 5 letters, 2nd-6, 3rd-7, 4th-8 & 5th-9. This bonus round failed that only one old man won the car. Contestants stayed up to three days when this bonus round happened. In both cases, if the car was won, Rosner's trademark of dropping balloons (like on Just Men! & Hollywood Squares-Davidson) would happen. Caesar had only a 2 car streak while JM & HS had 4. At the end of the show, Rashad & Doherty would go out into the audience, pick people to play for chocolates & coins, solving simple 5 letter words while the credits rolled.moreless

    After 22 years, To Tell the Truth (1990) came back to daytime network tv, but on a new network (NBC).

    Two games were played per show & the cash awards were; $500 per incorrect vote ($1,000 minimum) & $3,000 for a stump.

    The audience game was called "One on One", where an audience member met a guest who told two stories. The panelist each asked a question per story. The audience member then had to guess which story is the truth. If the audience member is right, s/he wins $500. If incorrect, the guest wins $1,000.

    Gordon Elliott had to get out of the show due to a clause in his contract. Lynn Swann replaced him, making him the 3rd African-American host of a network tv game show (Adam Wade & Nipsey Russell were the others). Alex Trebek replaced him in February while also hosting Classic Concentration & Jeopardy! On one episode, Alex had to rush to the hospital for his wife had a baby, so Mark Goodson hosted for two days (he previously subbed back in 1967). It would mark his next to last television appearance before he died in 1992 (the 20th season opener of The Price Is Right is his last).

    There is no editor for this show. If you would like to be the editor look here for details.moreless
