Great show but not given a chance to succeed
22 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

The show was great; however, it was not allowed to become firmly established. In 1990, Iraq invade Kuwait and later in the year, USA went to war to liberate Kuwait. I remember watching an episode of the WIOU when it was interrupted by an announcement that Iraq had invaded Kuwait. After that interruption, it seems that the show kept getting interrupt because of what was happening in Kuwait and finally, it was canceled without much fanfare.

My favorite character was the blond reporter played by Katie McNeil. She was hot and could have been one of our best actresses if the show was not interrupted by the events in Kuwait.
