One of the greatest dramas ever
20 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It really is a shame that this show is barely remembered. And, if it is remembered at all, it is for the Fabian episode, A Lion Walks Among Us, which caused so much controversy at the time. If you watch that episode today, compared to what airs nowadays, you'll wonder what the fuss was all about. But getting back to the show, I've had the chance to view about 3/4 of the episodes and this is really one of the greatest dramatic series of all time. I would say that of the episodes that I've managed to see, all but two or three of them are great. Unfortunately there is no chance of this ever seeing the light of day again. Its in black and white, there are no big stars that are regulars and the biggest drawback is that the show is owned by Fox, a company which has no interest whatsoever in it's older television library. Really unfortunate but at least a full set of shows reside at both UCLA and the Library of Congress.
