Storyline

Chandler Smythe, a reporter, is killed be a demonic-looking gang member. He awakens in a police interrogation room and is offered the chance to join "the Corps," a group of heavenly agents who struggle against the Faustians (folks who make a deal with the devil) and Morlocks (what the Faustians become when their deal falls through). He teams up with Henry MacNeil, a black man from the 70's. Together they travel the streets of Hollywood (a center of demonic activity, naturally), fighting evil. Written by <crow_steve@hotmail.com>

Quotes

[opening narration]
Deacon Jones: A man torn from his family, murdered in his prime, only to return to Earth, resurrected as an agent of the Almighty Corps. With no magic, no special powers, forbidden from intimate contact, unrecognizable to those from their past lives, Chandler Smythe and Henry McNeil now fight to save lost souls against the minions of darkness. It is a battle of Good versus Evil. G vs E, that's what it is!

Hip, funny, dramatic, and brilliant.
13 August 1999 | by (Maryland, United States) – See all my reviews

The Pate brothers have created a brilliantly entertaining show in GvsE.

Chandler Smythe is a reporter who gets killed after witnessing a murder. He is apparently too bad for Heaven, but too good for Hell so he's given a chance to work for the Almighty as an agent in the Corps. As an agent, Chandler helps the Corps to save people who have made deals with the devil via the devil's agents, which are called Morlocks. He is placed back on Earth as a mortal with no special powers. If he does good work, he'll have a shot at Heaven the next time he dies.

The writing is clever, not patronizing. Their amusing use of celebrity guest-stars along with Deacon Jones' "Morlock Killin' Tips" shows an irreverent sense of humour. The camera and direction are very unusual and add greatly to the atmosphere of the show.

Highlighted by stellar acting and a hip/funky/pseudo-retro soundtrack, this show is one of the best I've seen on television.
