Enjoyable -- What Happened?
19 November 2000 | by KrindaSee all my reviews

Okay, this was a short-lived series that should have continued.

I especially got a kick out of the suspenseful, action-packed pilot (first episode), and loved the relationships that developed, especially between "Kaz" (Richard Tyson) and "Billy" (Jarrett Lennon), who was kidnapped, and ended up in huge and exciting (and VERY FUNNY!) adventures. I liked the icehouse scenes the best, and that car scene (into the bay) was HOT!

Whatever HAPPENED to Richard Tyson?! He was funny-cool!
