I used to love to watch this show
laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate-night back when I lived in the US
(1992) ---- it was my routine twice a week to see "Forever Knight" and
this around 2 am. Not the best-acted show by any stretch of the
imagination, but I was always looking forward to the next episode, even
if it was a repeat. Justin Louis played an ex-con, reformed former
juvenile delinquent who goes to work for a fictional Montreal
newspaper. During the course of his work day, he would be fighting
society's dysfunctions and various crime situations. The cast of
characters are all your usual suspects - grumpy boss, nosy office
busybody, flirty buxom co-worker, on-the-down-low law enforcement
confidante, etc... but still worth a few great TV memories from the
Fans of this show are probably fans of Wiseguy (1987 - Ken Wahl), The Pretender (1996 - Michael T Weiss) and Forever Knight (1992 Geraint Wyn Davies) so I hope respectable, accessible boxed-set DVDs come out soon for us!
Keep it real!
URBAN ANGEL Not bad crime show I remember watching Urban Angel back at the beginning of 1990s. It is not a masterpiece but not a garbage either. Lorne Brass plays a crime reporter Luke nicknamed Urban Angel who has a unique talent of getting into trouble while trying to investigate the crimes he routinely reports on. Well, the police are not at their best again, so who will care if not our brave guy, Luke. Another person joins the parade of a thousand and one amateur detectives. The results are not bad. Sure, there are lots of clichés without which the show would not be so old fashioned, so typical. Luke does not want to be a detective but sometimes he simply has to because time and again not he looks for trouble but trouble looks for him. So, it is not the case "I am tired of what I do, I want to go beyond it". This show is good enough, I would compare it (to some extent) to The Midnight Caller If you saw it you will understand. As far as I know Urban Angel was on only for 1 season, and there were not any major reruns of it.
