The Good Old Days...
A page devoted to the television shows I wish were still on the air. There is so much crap on
tv nowadays. I still can't comprehend why the life of these shows were so short while atrocites
like Full House and Family Matters had such a long run.
Here was a cool show with many possibilities for growth. Though sometimes I was dissapointed
that they didn't expand on some issues in order to keep it more children oriented, it had much
intelligence and maturity, as well as potential.

Wow, what a great show this was. In one word: brilliant. A one hour action-packed Canadian
television series based on a popular John Woo movie. It was perfectly casted with dynamic
actors who had great chemistry together. It was quirky, hilarious, had interesting camera
techniques, and stunning and amazingly creative fight scenes. I can't tell you how cool
this show was. If it's so great, you're probably wondering why it was cancelled after only
one season. So am I. It seems Canadian producers are afraid of making popular shows and prefer
to stick to political satire and shows that take place in the 1800's, despite the 1.1 million
viewers Once a Thief had; even with it's lousy timeslot. They're such idiots. I have spotted
some episodes on video in Canadian Roger's video stores though, and I recommend renting them if
you get the chance.

The coolest kids show on earth. When I was young we had a tape of the He-Man and She-Ra movie
and I used to watch it almost every day. I found the tape again about a year ago, and despite 30
seconds of it being taped over with The Sound of Music ("Let's go He-Man!" **fzzzt!** "How do
you solve a problem like Maria?" **fzzzt!**), it's still in pretty good shape and watching it
brings back the few good childhood memories I have. I have been able to find a few episodes on
tape in the children's section of Roger's video. Sure they're cheesy, but it's a funny kind of
