    Showtime (ended 2000)
    An 30-minute anthology of horror stories, THE HUNGER, hosted by Terence Stamp in season 1, and David Bowie in season 2, premiered on Showtime on July 20, 1997. Created by Jeff Fazio. The show remided us of "The Twilight Zone" and "The Outer Limits," but it actually a much darker and adults-only type of show. The show centered mostly on the horror, combined with erotica and fantasy, followed by amazing segments with the hosts. The show had a few blanks, but overall it was a another anthology-series worth watching.moreless

    Follow
    Showtime (ended 1993)
    Kurt Vonnegut's Monkey House is a 1991 series from Showtime that featured Vonnegut himself hosting televised versions of some of his stories. The stories first appeared in his book Welcome To The Monkey House. In particular, the film features recreations of the stories Next Door, The Euphio Question, and All The King's Horses. Typical of Vonnegut's other works, the stories are darkly humorous and filled with quirky characters. The science fiction undertones are reminiscent of The Twilight Zone and Ray Bradbury's works. For instance, the title story involves an overpopulated, futuristic world in which the world government is trying to curb the population through optional suicide parlors and mandatory birth control that takes the pleasure out of sex. All of Vonnegut's writings involve the lone rational mind trying to survive a senseless and bureaucratic world, and this collection captures some of his most peculiar and creepy expressions of those very themes. moreless

    It's Garry Shandling's Show is one of the first original programs created by the fledgling Showtime network in the mid-80's to compete with original HBO comedies like Not Necessarily the News. It lasted about 70 episodes. Slightly racier and self-effacing interpretation of several traditional comedy formats including sitcom and talk show, the program was the first to star stand-up comedian Garry Shandling. The show introduced much of the country to Shandling and paved the way for his more successful run as late-night talk show host Larry Sanders on HBO's, The Larry Sanders Show.

    Showtime (ended 2001)
    Tales of the City (and it's sequels) follow the soap-operaish lives of the people living in 1970's and 1980's San Francisco, and are based on Armistead Maupin's novels. The show centers around Anna Madrigal, the eccentric landlady at 28 Barbary Lane (who welcomes her tenants by taping homegrown joints above their doors), her tenants and the others implicated in their lives. Tenants include Mary Ann Singleton, a naive midwesterner who moves to California to start a new life; Mona Ramsey, a **** who is unknowingly Mrs. Madrigal's daughter; Michael "Mouse" Tolliver, a gay Floridan who moved to California to avoid letting his parents find out he was gay and Brian Hawkins, a horny straight guy trapped in a gay city... People involved in their lives are Beachamp Day, Mary Ann's boss, and his wife DeDe; Edgar Halcyon, Anna's boyfriend, and his wife, Frannie who are DeDe's parents; Dr. Jon Fielding, the on-again-off-again boyfriend of Michael's; Mother Mucka, a whorehouse madame who is mother to Mrs. Madrigal; and Connie Bradshaw, a school friend of Mary Ann's; among others. The show was originally produced for Britain's Channel 4 & USA's PBS. When PBS aired it in 1994, it broke their ratings records, and in 1998, Showtime and Channel 4 produced the follow-up, More Tales of the City. The latest series, Further Tales of the City aired on Showtime in May 2001 -- but was not aired in the UK. The other 3 "Tales" novels, Babycakes, Significant Others, and Sure of You, have not been adapted for TV as of yet (Just for the record, "Babycakes" is not in any way related to the film that starred Ricki Lake). According to Maupin's official site, a script for "Babycakes" is being developed as a two-hour telefilm -- though it's still in the developmental stage at this point. There's been speculation about the departure of three of the leads from the original series, which was cleared up on Armistead Maupin's official site... Chloe Webb (Mona) asked for more money than they were offering, Paul Gross (Brian) was filming the TV series "Due South," and was therefore unavailable. Marcus D'Amico expressed "ambivalence" about reprising his role as Michael, so they recast the part. If anybody has any information they would like to contribute to this guide, please feel free to! If you know of the European airdates, they would be greatly appreciated. Although many of the actors were credited as "stars," many only appeared in an episode or two, so I've tried to track down which episodes and list them as "guest stars."moreless

    Fallen Angels

    Showtime (ended 1995)
    Fallen Angels was a neo-noir anthology television series set in somber Los Angeles right after World War II and before the election of president John F. Kennedy. In Europe the show was known as Perfect Crimes. The program ran during 1993-1995 on the Showtime pay-cable station. The episodes had a gorgeous look and, although filmed in color, mimicked what was done by Hollywood filmmakers during the film noir era of the 1940's and 1950's in terms of tone, look, and story content. The series was produced using top-notch directors, well-known hard-boiled fiction writers, screenplay masters, inventive cinematographers, and first-rate actors. In addition, the art direction gave the series the ambiance and historical look required of a show devoted to noir set in Los Angeles. The ensemble group of craftswomen and craftsmen took a turn each week at the helm to produce many, many memorable episodes and a visually stunning series. Each episode began with a cool and restrained jazz score as the sultry Fay Friendly told her audience what would develop in the episode. Her words were wistful, melancholic and foreshadowed the pain to come. "It's a role call of tormented souls confronting their monsters within; it's a picaresque look at Los Angeles back in the forties. It's the world of pulp on celluloid, pure translations that augment the stark power of great short fiction." --James Ellroy, Novelist By Lou Delgado Produced by: Showtime Networks Inc. and Propaganda Filmsmoreless

    Showtime
    Inside the NFL is one of the longest running, Emmy award winning sports shows on cable television today. Each episode has some of the most exciting player profiles, interviews and footage as well as expert comentary from past players from around the NFL. Current hosts include James Brown, Cris Collinsworth, Phil Simms and Warren Sapp who provide the in depth coverage that fans have come to expect since the shows long history. Inside the NFL began in 1977 with its original hosts, Al Meltzer and Chuck Bednarik, but is wasn't until 1979 that the show started to take form, with the hosts that would be on the show for the next 22 seasons, being Len Dawson and Nick Bounichonti. In 1990, Cris Collinsworth joined the cast of the show, and the three-man setup was there for 5 more seasons until they added some others to fill that 4th spot, whether it was Jimmy Johnson for his lone season in 1996, or Jerry Glanville, who was there from 1997 to 2001. In 2000, Dan Marino joined the cast after retiring from 17 years in the NFL, and was immediately a fan favorite. After the 2001 season and the shows 25th season, Len Dawson, Nick Bounichonti, and Jerry Glanville left the show because in Len and Nick's case, they were getting too old and Cris Collinsworth took the lead host role. In 2002, Bob Costas and Cris Carter came on the show, and joined Cris Collinsworth and Dan Marino. That foursome went from 2002-2007, ending with what was supposed to be the last ever episode of Inside the NFL, on February 6th 2008. Then for the 2008 NFL Season, Inside the NFL was picked up by Showtime, and the current cast for that show is James Brown, Phil Simms, Cris Collinsworth, and Warren Sapp. Historical segments from the show included the Cover Story, Where are They Now, NFL Crosstalk, Teeing Off, and now there are segments called Grab Bag, King for a Day, Phil's Pet Peeves, and Ask Warren Anything. Inside the NFL is now going into it's 33rd season and it now the longest running sports show on TV, and the second longest non-soap oprea show TV only behind The Price is Right.moreless

    Dead Man's Gun, produced by Henry "The Fonz" Winkler, is about a pistol forged in hell which brings sorrow into the lives of those who possess it. Each week, a different guest star would have the gun come into their possession in one way or another; usually they end up dead. One of the best things about the show were the great guest stars, usually former big-time actors who aren't quite so mainstream any more, who appeared on the show. Kris Kristofferson is the regular on the show, narrating every episode. He and the gun are the only links from episode to episode.moreless

Linc is the politically conservative proprietor who caters to a diverse crowd. And a very vocal one indeed. The patrons speak their minds, and although the comedy might be sophisticated, it is definitely not politically correct. LINC's also stars Pam Grier, and Georg Stanford Brown. Tisha Campbell guest stars as Linc's beloved daughter, Rosalee. The irreverent ensemble comedy series was created by Tim Reid (WKRP IN CINCINNATI and FRANK'S PLACE) & Susan Fales-Hill.
