    "If you need help, then look no further. Angel Investigations is the best. Our rats are low..." "Rates!" "It says 'rats.' Our rates are low, but our standards are high. When the chips are down, and you're at the end of your rope you need someone that you can count on. And that's what you'll find here -- someone who will go all the way, no matter what. So don't lose hope. Come on over to our offices and you'll see that there's still heroes in this world." For over two centuries, Angelus was one of the most vicious vampires ever to walk the earth. Then he killed the wrong girl, and her grieving Gypsy family cursed him with the return of his soul, causing him to suffer remorse for all the hundreds of innocents that he had killed through the years. Now he goes by the name Angel, and he fights to protect the helpless from those who would prey upon them as he once did himself. After three years of living in Sunnydale, fighting alongside his girlfriend Buffy, Angel has moved to Los Angeles to continue the good fight. Aided by a few old friends and some new ones, Angel must take on vampires, demons, lawyers, and all of the other dark forces that Los Angeles has to offer.moreless

    The WB (ended 2003)
    Legend tells of a caped crusader, Batman, guardian of New Gotham, and his one true love, Catwoman, the queen of the criminal underworld. Their passion left behind something extraordinary, a daughter, Huntress. Half metahuman, she has taken up her father's mantle and under cover of the night, fights to protect the innocent and helpless. Joining her in this struggle, Oracle, who was once Batman's protégé, Batgirl. She was caught in the crossfire of the war between Batman and Joker, now she fights crime a different way, a master of the cyber-realms and mentor and trainer to heroes. Together, they have taken in a young runaway, Dinah, a metahuman herself with powers to open hidden doors to the mind, powers that she is only beginning to explore. Together, these three are the protectors of New Gotham - the Birds of Prey. "Birds of Prey" was a fantastic series, loved by many fans. Unfortunately, the show was one of the many that did not get to live as long as it should have. The show had so much going for it - an interesting storyline, addicting characters, a good theme, and a wonderful cast and crew. With an amazing start within the 13 episodes, who knows what this show would have turned into? All we know, it would have been amazing. The cast has already begun to move on, but now all we can ask for is a DVD box set so we will have something to remember our loved series by. Start off by signing the DVD Petition Online.

    The WB (ended 2002)
    The tight-knit Oblong clan lives in Hill Valley, a toxic valley downstream from your typical industrial waste site, which has caused a variety of bizarre physical and emotional abnormalities. At the head of the dinner table is the loving, limbless, tirelessly upbeat patriarch Bob Oblong and his adoring, alcohol-and-tobacco-addicted, bald-but-beautifully-wigged wife Pickles, who frequents the Rusty Bucket bar, owned by transexual Anita Bidet (who was originally to be named Sofonda Cox!). The family includes their conjoined twin sons Biff and Chip, who share three legs and three buttocks, but can't seem to agree on anything; sweet, tattling, 4-year-old daughter Beth, sporting a cucumber-like growth sprouting from her head; and youngest son Milo, a one-haired optimist who has every childhood emotional disorder and behavioral problem ever diagnosed. Other members of the family include Bob's mother, Grammy, who's a vegetable; Milo's narcoleptic scottie dog, Scottie; and the chain-smoking family cat, Lucky. Milo used to go to a special school for "the pathologically high-spirited," but now enjoys his days at "normal" school with fellow valley outcasts including the zaftig, toad-like Helga Phugly; gothic and death-obsessed Creepy Susie; bulbous-bottomed Mikey Butts; and brainy, spitting, lower-jaw-lacking Peggy Weggy. Milo and the gang constantly clash with the Debbies, a giggling gaggle of wealthy, popular, seemingly cloned "hill" girls of the same first name. As far as the Debbies and their parents are concerned, anything that isn't perfect - like them - isn't worthy of their attention. "Normal" school is headed by Principal Davis. Other members of the school staff include Nurse Rench, who has a scary operating contraption in place of her right arm, and the homeroom teacher, Leland. Aside from hanging out in the clubhouse in the Oblongs'back yard, the kids often find themselves hanging out at the local store "A to Zed." Bob's disregarding boss at Globocide Industries is the aristocratic father, George Klimer. His wife, Pristine, is a Barbie-like, former Debbie, who used to be school friends with Pickles when both girls lived in the hills - before Pickles married Bob and joined the "grotesque" side. Their attractive daughter, Debbie, is leader of the Debbies; and their not-too-bright but popular son Jared, together with his best friend Blaine, is a well-coifed tormentor of the Clubhouse kids. Executive producer Bruce Helford ("The Drew Carey Show," "Norm[show]," "[show]Nikki") and writer/executive producer Jace Richdale ("The Simpsons") bring to animated life the strange world of underground cartoonist Angus Oblong. Created by Oblong and Richdale, this half-hour comedy series is executive produced by Helford, Richdale and Deborah Oppenheimer ("The Drew Carey Show," "Norm," "Nikki"), for Oblongs Productions, Inc. in associate with Mohawk Productions and Jobsite Productions, distributed by Warner Bros. Television. Mary V. Buck and Susan Edelman are the winners of The Casting Society of America's, award for "Best Casting for Animated Television Voiceover" for The Oblongs. The Oblongs is inspired by characters in the book "Creepy Susie and 13 Other Tragic Tales for Troubled Children" by Angus Oblong. Milo, Susie, Helga, the Debbies, and Milo's Narcoleptic Scottie all originated in this book, which is aimed at adults in the guise of a children's book. Special thanks to Angus Oblong, without whom (the show and) much of the information in this guide would not have been possible!

    The Crow: Stairway to Heaven

    The Crow: Stairway to Heaven

    Follow
    The WB (ended 1999)
    Exactly one year after his death, rock musician, Eric Draven, returns to earth in a symbolic and literal leap from the bridge that joins the Land of the Dead and the land of the living. Possessing the mystic powers of The Crow, he is neither living nor dead, searching for a way to right what has been wronged.

    The Crow: Stairway to Heaven continues the legacy of Eric Draven and expands on the mythology of the successful feature film franchise. Joined as soulmates, Draven and his girlfriend Shelly were inseparable — until they were brutally and senselessly murdered.

    Now, their souls cannot rest. Their romance endures through time and death, creating an incredible longing between the young lovers. Draven seeks redemption by helping others, fighting for those who cannot fight for themselves. Through each act of justice, he is taken one step closer to his own salvation.

    A foot soldier on the side of good, at Draven's core is a powerful force that transforms him into The Crow — his alter ego.

    Draven's return to Earth arouses both suspicion and curiosity from Daryl Albrecht, the police lieutenant who has never given up his crusade to solve the vicious crime that cost Eric and Shelly their lives.

    Eric also has other earthly allies. He and Shelly remain connected to Sarah, a 13-year-old kid who is streetwise beyond her years and who regarded the dead lovers as family. While her rebellious nature can be her worst enemy, she is the grounded voice of reality for Eric.

    Even a dead man needs to get a life. Although Eric Draven has been changed forever, he must exist, at least for now, in the world of the living.

    During the opening theme of the show, the voice-overs of Eric and Shelly say:

    SHELLY: People once believed that when someone dies, a Crow carries their soul to the Land of the Dead

    DRAVEN: But sometimes something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can't rest

    SHELLY: Then sometimes, just sometimes, the Crow can bring the soul back to put things right

    DRAVEN: Things can never be right, my soul will never rest, until we are together again.

    The Crow: Stairway to Heaven was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.moreless

    Strange and supernatural with a humorous bent, Dead Last chronicles the misadventures of a fledgling rock band on the verge of being discovered when the rockers accidentally stumble upon a magical ancient amulet that gives them the power to see ghosts…whether they want to or not. Suddenly, their popularity skyrockets - if only with the dead - as they find themselves eternally stuck with the unwanted task of helping an endless parade of apparitions resolve their unfinished business so they can move on to the next world. In the band, The Problem, are Vaughn Parrish (the brooding and charismatic guitarist and singer, who sometimes lets his ego get the better of him), Scotty Sallback (the band's hulking drummer whose rough-and-tumble exterior hides a good-natured soul) and Jane Cahill, (the beautiful bass player, who often serves as the peacemaker of the group, mediating artistic differences between the two guys). Only 5 of the 13 episodes aired on the WB in 2001, the remaining episodes were later aired on YTV in Canada.moreless
