Notes:

After the success of the movie Blue Thunder, the concept had to come to TV. In this series, an advanced military helicopter is used by, you guessed it, a secret government organization, to hunt down and stop criminals and spies. The show had a successful 4 year run.

Notes:

Similar to La Femme Nikita, this series is about a girl who was unwillingly pulled into a life of espionage by a secret government agency. Since this series was created by a rival network, they were able to take it in a different direction, but the premise is the same. It had a bigger budget as it was an American network and was very successful, lasting 5 years.

Notes:

Somebody had to do it. Death Valley is a comedy about zombies, werewolves and vampires. After L.A. is overrun by the undead, humans decide to try to "live" with the problem, rather than completely eradicate them, thereby creating The Undead Task Force (UTF) to help control the population. This is a very unusual show, with, forgive the expression, deadpan humour.

Defiance

3 Seasons, 60 Minute Episodes

Riding the wave of vampire and supernatural series success, this drama takes the myth in a new direction; one in which Dracula and Van Helsing are working together to take down The Order Of The Dragon, a corrupt secret society bent on world domination.

Notes:

Role-Playing reached it's height in the early 80's and as such, this cartoon series was created to fill that need. The concept is that a group of contemporary teens gets pulled into "The Realm Of The Dungeons & Dragons" and must find their way home, completing quests along the way. Each character has their own skills, which they use to accomplish these tasks, including magic, heroism, thievery and more.

2 Seasons, 60 Minute Episodes

Notes:

Spielberg created this series about post-apocalyptic human society attempting to eliminate an alien force which has overtaken Earth. This is a very dark series, with strong character development as well as decent special effects.
