Did You Know?


Mark Dacascos did not particularly enjoy working on the show, claiming in an interview that it left him physically and emotionally 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.

If ever a series had everything...
13 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

I admire the series for managing to include and balance everything: buddy action, romance, music, special effects, humor, mystery, a strong underlying morality, and rarest of all on TV a deep, authentic sadness. The worst episodes are the hey-let's-add- another-gimmick episodes. The best are the ones that stick to the implications of the basic premise. I understand that production was suspended because of a change of corporate ownership or something, and I hope someone can get the act back together for more episodes without losing quality or momentum. The development that ended the last episode was something that, with good writing, could have propelled a fine continuation.
