I remember this series well and watched it faithfully. I particularly liked the character played by Otis Young. As I recall, he was handsome and strong and a wonderful actor to boot. I especially enjoyed the relationship between the two main characters. I also recall Gloria Foster playing his wife and, as always, she made a strong impression on this viewer. Twenty-five years or so later, she played the Oracle in The Matrix 1 and 2, but, unfortunately, she passed away before Matrix 3. I know the series wasn't on for more than 1-2 years, and I distinctly remember being extremely upset when it was canceled. If this series is available anywhere, in either format, I'd love to own it.
