Storyline

A woman creates a community center in an old inner-city gym called Powerhouse that belonged to her father. As things turn out, the move attracts the opposition of criminals whom a group of five teenage attendees of the center manage to find and capture. Furthermore, that incident is the first of a series of cases that the kids investigate by using their knowledge of science, fitness, and other areas, while addressing other serious issues. Interspersed in the show are un-commercials that promote health, social attitudes, and physical activity. 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?
