Did You Know?


Although both shows are listed as only having 21 episodes, they each have 22 episodes when re-aired. The first season has 21, but the pilot is approximately eighty-five minutes (twice the length of other episodes). The second season (and series) finale, "Freak Nation," is an hour and a half, which splits the episode during re-airings. See more »


In "The Berissford Agenda" Logan acts like it's the first time he's met and seen Joshua. This is false because he saw Joshua before in "Two". See more »


Logan Cale: In case you haven't caught on by now, this girl's gonna do what she's gonna do no matter what you or anyone else says, so you've got two choices: back off or pitch in.

User Reviews

Wish it could have survived, but needed better writers.
12 September 2002 | by (U.S.) – See all my reviews

The pilot was awesome, and the first season was great. We couldn't wait to watch it every Friday. Jessica was excellent for the part and played it extremely well. The supporting cast also did a great job, and the characters and plot was working very well.

When the first season ended, we couldn't wait for the second season. Unfortunately, as the second season progressed, it appeared that the story writers were running out of steam. It seemed to me that they made a wrong turn with the plot along the way, and they couldn't seem to find a way to get back on track. It was an awesome show, it definately had potential, and it is unfortunate that it had to end like it did.
