ALL TIME FAVORITE T.V. Series
29 October 2000 | by Class-ActSee all my reviews

Why this show was cancelled so soon is a mystery to me. Very believable storylines stemming from many current events in real life! If you enjoy suspense, mystery with a tad of humour all wrapped up in one then seek the reruns. I enjoyed it from the beginning but really got into it after the second season with the new charcters Gabrelle and Stone. Most people I talked to about it loved Peter character, I happen to think Stone had a very unique character and Purcell played it well. You can't help but love Gabby-a photo journalist with a hugh curiosity for info on anything with a heart beat! Good work guys!
