With Season 1 ending on a cliffhanger, decent ratings, and good fan response, pre-production on season two began. It only got as far as the writing stage when Universal bought out PolyGram Productions. Universal canceled the show, stopping dead in its tracks. Executive Producer Bryce Zabel made attempts at reviving the series, and then at a TV-movie that would wrap up the major loose ends of the series, but to no avail. See more »
I admire the series for managing to include and balance everything: buddy action, romance, music, special effects, humor, mystery, a strong underlying morality, and rarest of all on TV a deep, authentic sadness. The worst episodes are the hey-let's-add- another-gimmick episodes. The best are the ones that stick to the implications of the basic premise. I understand that production was suspended because of a change of corporate ownership or something, and I hope someone can get the act back together for more episodes without losing quality or momentum. The development that ended the last episode was something that, with good writing, could have propelled a fine continuation.
