Trivia

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 »

An Interesting Twist
16 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

While NOTHING can replace James O'Barr's comic book/graphic novel The Crow, I did find the movies and television series very entertaining. At first, I didn't think I'd like The Crow: Stairway To Heaven, but I enjoyed all 22 episodes immensely. People have said it rips off the first movie. I disagree. With TV guidelines being different, the writers have added some new twists to The Crow mythos more interesting. I particularly liked how the television series focused on how Eric Draven does or does not do everyday things like eat, sleep, and pay rent. THAT is something that was NEVER done in the movies.
