Mark Dacascos did not particularly enjoy working on the show, claiming in an interview that it left him physically and spiritually exhausted. The 60-70 hour work weeks - coupled with the commute from his home in California to the production center in Canada - put a strain on his marriage, and the frequently somber scenes he had to perform depressed him.

An interesting blend of action and the supernatural.
I haven't seen the film with Brandon Lee, but I caught this show while surfing Friday night primetime in Canada. This is about a man named Eric Draven who is killed with his girlfriend, but mysteriously resurrected to "set things right." The episodes aren't as moody as the movie, and take quite a different turn. The events, as to be expected, are continuing adventures, in which Eric tries to find out how he can go back to the afterlife. Mark Dacascos is great in the role of Eric Draven. He has that devil-may-care look that is perfect for The Crow, and the martial arts choreography looks fantastic (without considering that this is a television budget). The stories are always action packed with a touch of mystery in the supernatural. This is a great show with a very cool concept, and I hope it keeps going.
