Storyline

A woman creates a community center in a old gym that belonged to her father in the inner city and calls it Powerhouse. As things turn out, that move has her opposing criminals whom a group of five teenage attendees of the center manage to find and capture. Furthermore, that incident is but the first of a series of informal cases that compel the kids to investigate as detectives, where they employ their knowledge of science, fitness, and other areas to solve the crimes, all while addressing serious issues that affect the youths of the city. Interspersed in the show are uncommercials that promote bodily health. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

From The Folks That Brought You The Bloodhound Gang...
2 May 2003 | by (California, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Was this show maybe a spinoff of 3-2-1 Contact's The Bloodhound Gang? I watched this show when it was on PBS back in the day. A bunch of kids, ranging in age from about 18 down to 13, would go around and solve mysteries of sorts, traveling around in a spiffy orange Volkswagen bus. I remember the show had a really low-budget look, like it was shot in 16-millimeter. Man, does anybody else remember this program?
