The series had a hard time attracting ratings as it first aired on Thursdays at 8 against The Cosby Show and The Simpsons who were having a highly hyped ratings duel. CBS moved the series to 8:30, an unusual time slot for a hour long drama and aired a promotional campaign to remind viewers to switch over "After Bill, After Bart." The move didn't work, and the series was relegated to Saturday, and eventually in a last ditch effort to try to build interest for a possible second season was moved to Friday. See more »
Simply said, this series was too advanced for the simple minds watching TV when it aired back in the 90's. The sets were past, present and futuristic giving it a non-era look. The acting was very good and the costumes, sets and writing were added bonuses each week. This series ran for 22 episodes and included an incredible two parter with Mark Hamill playing the Trickster, a role he seemed destined to play. He made the Joker look like Mr. Rogers. David Cassidy, Angela Bassett, M. Emmet Walsh and even Bill(y) Mumy from the original Lost in Space series made guest appearances as NON-forgettable characters. There is positive word that this series will be making it's way to a DVD box set soon. cut & paste this to read more - http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/newsitem.cfm?NewsID=3816
