However, he was finally captured and was hanged for his crimes in the courtyard of his own castle. Years later Barry Tarberry, a world famous millionaire and ruthless man has been charged with stock market fraud. To escape his crime he comes to a small island paradise. Only to soon discover he's trapped with all his accounts seized by the government. He now has only an old castle the locals believe is haunted. To Barry's dismay, the owner of the castle is the only one able to see Black Jack Savage, who is living on another spiritual plain until he saves 100 lives for those he killed. Jack tells Barry that he is heading for the same fate unless he too saves lives with Jack. Barry and Jack work together keeping the secret from the entire island, who now believe he is crazy. In the process Barry falls in love with Danielle, who cares ... Written by Janet Worth <worthy@planeteer.com>

100 lives of Black Jack Savage was GREAT
1 February 2007 | by gosherry-1See all my reviews

This series is now over 15 years old, but I still chuckle at the antics of Black Jack, the parrot, and Teaburry. One never knew what the inventions would include, but they were always great. I think that the reason this show did not succeed was not the characters or the plots, but rather that it was a summer replacement show, and NBC kept changing not only the time it aired, but also the day. It would skip a week or two and then show up days after the episode before. I too would like to get copies of the entire show, as it was a classic. I think there were 3 of us who watched it. myself, an old friend and the other commenter. The viewer was always rooting for Black Jack when he left the property and had to make it back before the Hounds of Hell caught up with him.
