Storyline

This short lived superhero show was about a Children's book writer named Nicholas. In the daytime, he was kind, funny, and caring. At night, he would transform into Jon Sable, a superhero/vigilante. His sidekick of sorts, was a blind man nicknamed Cheesecake, who pretended he was a stand up comedian (He even had his own laugh track!!!). Written by Pat McCurry <ccgrad97@aol.com>

It went from decent to very good in six episodes.

Sable was beginning to grow into a great show. In one episode his blind assistant is attacked and uses a masterful trick to live. It was one of the most memorable fight scenes I've ever seen. They took out a lot of the comic book aspects out of the show...I missed the cool outfits from the comic, but it was starting to get up on it's own two feet when the show was quickly cancelled. I was lucky enough to tape all the episodes, but I'd love to see a DVD of this show. Maybe a few last unaired episodes somewhere? They might have been even better than 5 & 6 which are wonderful.
