Trivia

The only time money other than an actual world currency was provided for the show alone to appear believable. All other monetary forms were made on printed paper. See more »

Goofs

Quinn leaves his Midwestern-looking house (brick houses are scarce in earthquake country) and jogs through Golden Gate Park to the Berkeley campus, which is across the Bay. Rembrandt, in a hurry to get from Telegraph Hill to Candlestick Park (due south), drives west. See more »

This is AWESOME

This is the greatest TV series ever! I hope it hits the shelves! A movie would be da bomb! The special f/x are so cool! Too bad the series died. Hope for a renewal! !
