Trivia

The term "harsh realm" originates from the grunge speak hoax of 1992 when a sales representative from Sub Pop Records told a persistent New York Times reporter that the grunge kids in Seattle had their own terminology (they didn't) and that "harsh realm" was one of their key expressions (it wasn't).

Goofs

In the title sequence, Hobbes's military ID card lists his rank and military pay grade as "LT/03". Hobbes is Army, and that rank/pay grade is consistent for the Navy. See more »

User Reviews

Great TV show. Shouldn't have been taken off.

The show is about a guy named Hobbes who is put into a sort of alternate reality (like the matrix, but knowingly). Hobbes wants to get out of this alternate reality and the only way is to kill a guy called Santiago. Chris Carter's (creator of the x-files) directing makes the show very good and have a great plot and acting. Another cool thing is the constant use of the song "Climbatize" by prodigy. Overall a great plot and very well made show. Was one of those summer shows on fox that was really good but never made it.
