Jason Leland Adams,
Sunday nights I sat and watched Angel, and noticed a new show coming on afterwards at 9. Without anything else better to do, and absolutely no expectations, I watched the entire pilot of Black Sash. Each character was represented completely, but you could tell they were rushing to detail each character in the 45-minute segment. Other than that, I was hooked. Each character has some sort of physical/emotional struggle, and their martial arts training ties in with each episode, it's uniquely blended to put on a great episode. The actors do a great job, Russell Wong is great as the mentor, and his grandfather also hands him advice. Good show, sad it got cancelled. Watch for re-runs. Oh, and yes, the actors are all good-looking. That helps.
