Earth 2 - Still gutted that NBC cancelled it!
I tried watching the premiere episode but wow, the writing, acting, SFX or something was just so off, I couldn't get into it. Interesting premise, tho. Someone should give it another shot, and bring back Clancy Brown.

Nope - Jake 2.0 was a UPN show, not a FOX show.

Awww, man! Thanks for posting that Plymouth link! I was working the mail room at Columbia Studios when this aired, and the office of Lee David Zlotoff (creator of this and MacGyver) was on my route.
The day after Plymouth aired, he was actually in his office, so I told him how impressed I was by it (and MacGyver).
He seemed surprised that I knew who he was.

You can watch the episodes on YouTube, but this is my favorite scene from the Pilot.

I remember watching that show and thinking "a female Data," and I wonder if she cribbed a little from Spiner's performance. Then I finished The Caves of Steel and thought a female R. Daneel Olivaw. Nevertheless, I liked the show.

How about "7 Days"?

I came in to mention this one - I really enjoyed this show, and it had a great premise. Got a bit cheesy later on though.

Re: Sci-fi Brilliant but Canceled or little known gems

My fav lost gem is/was VR 5, Lori Singer, Michael Easton and new thingies called computers!

A thread a few weeks back about bit torrent downloading of shows unavailable on DVD mentioned an eBay type site that had offerings of taped TV shows not commercially available. I checked it out, and found VR 5, and a couple of other obscure items as well! I'm watching VR 5 right now!

A quick search turned up several of the titles mentioned on this thread.
Stop having fond memories and do something about it!

You know, regarding Earth 2, Deborah Farentino (Eureka) was hot. She was the Lena Headey of the 90s.

Anyone remember UNSUB? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096720/
It was made post "Manhunter" and featured David Soul, M Emmet Walsh and Kent McCord as FBI profilers. I keep hoping someone will release this on DVD to cash in on the popularity of CSI and Criminal Minds.

I didn't realize she was in Eureka. Now I have to decide whether I want to watch that or not!

You should. It's a wonderfully fun series.

I probably would if Hulu had more than 5 episodes from Season 2. Maybe one of these days I'll run across it.

Strange New Worlds

I saw it when sci-fi reran the handful of episodes -- but I missed the last 5-10 minutes and never have seen it since. I've looked everywhere and I can't find it. It's one of the few things that really irks me.
