A decent horror show, with some interesting characters.

I saw sad to see this go, as it was a nice update to the original series. Solid acting and writing, more realistic bionics, and likable characters. Really could have gone in some interesting directions.

The main character is a morgue attendant who can not only communicate with the dead but relive a day and try to prevent that person from dying. A bit episodic for my tastes, but there is an over-arcing plot and the acting is very good.

Fairly solid science fiction. A bit dated now, but it was great at the time.

A rather mediocre interpretation of the film. It just seemed unnecessary, as the film really covered the concept fairly well and the show added nothing new to the concept.

I really wish this had been given more time, as the romantic in me wanted to see a happy ending for the main character. Sadly, it seemed unlikely even before cancellation..

I can't recall a single episode of this show, but I did watch it constantly when I was a kid. Was it good, or was it just the best out of the three available channels?

I loved this show right up until the last episode. Unfortunately, they decided that the least likely person had to be the killer, and that character reversal really ruined it for me. Well, not the least likely character. The dog is innocent.

Romancing the Stone on the small screen. I realize that younger viewers likely won't get the reference, as it wasn't a new movie when I was a kid, but it's a fairly simple format. Take a pretty female lead, and add in a somewhat brutish, rude romantic interest. Someone who needs to be fixed. Add in some hazards, both natural and of the gun-toting variety, and some MacGuffin that everyone wants. Standard romance novel stuff.

An every-man sheriff and his teenage daughter move to a town full of super-geniuses and their impossible-to-control inventions. Despite the constant threats to the lives of the people in the town (or the town itself, or the world, or the universe), the show manages to remain funny in every episode. The acting is great, with the Sheriff in particular showing off his comedic chops with regularity. The science is more fiction that real, but that's made clear in the pilot so lovers of science so strange it's nearly magic will feel at home here. Well worth a watch.
