Trivia

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.

A fun time all too shortlived
4 June 2002 | by (Baltimore, MD) – See all my reviews

The show takes the storyline of the first movie but has Eric remain "alive" in the interests of putting other wrongs right and helping those who cannot help themselves. Cheesy at times but Mark Dacascos' superior physical ability and charisma save the show. I suspect it would have been easy to have focused a great deal on the action part of Eric's character but Dacascos does a great job of giving Eric Draven emotional depth. The three regulars (Gomes, Stuart and Dacascos) have good chemistry and play well off each other. Eric's brief scenes with Shelley stay true to the idea of theirs being a great love, giving the show a good balance of action and romance. It's unfortunate that the show was ended so abruptly; a made-for-tv movie or straight to video release that resolved the issues brought up in the cliffhanger finale to the first season would be appreciated by many fans of the shortlived series.
