Looking 4 SciFi Eps with Motorcycles, Colleges, RealEstates

I'm doing research on something (and no I'm not telling you). I'm looking for episodes of science-fiction TV shows that have scenes of schools/colleges, motorcycles, and Real Estate house sales/Realtors and Hospitals, a Newspaper Office (like Lou Grant) and a Radio Station and an Ice Rink/Roller Rink.

For example, I know the second season premiere of SeaQuest had Captain Bridger riding a motorcycle, as well as an episode of Babylon 5, numerous Doctor Whos and of course Galactica 1980. I got an old Spider-man and Quantum Leap that has scenes of a College and the Sarah Jane Smith episode of Doctor Who that has the school and the Doctor Who with the Hospital on the moon. And the Quantum Leap that takes place at the Radio Station (the DJ and the Dr Ruth episodes). Just post what you know, and Episode Titles please so I can find them.

Strange. I've got a few though:

The Six Million Dollar Man has a 5th season episode titled Rollback that has a roller derby team at the center of it's plot.

Sliders has a 5th season episode titled Easy Slider that features motorcycles.

Charmed has an 8th season episode titled Battle of the Hexes that shows Billie in class at college.

Also, these may be the worst possible episodes to feature your requirements.

There's always the infamous Galactica 1980 for motorcycles.

A strange amd mysterious request! Well here goes...

Schools: DS9 had several episodes such as In the Hands of the Prophets depicting Kieko's school.

Hospital: The Twilight Zone episode Twenty-Two takes place on one. Also, since the main character on Lost was a doc, there are plenty of hospital scenes, just look up any Jack-centric episode.

Never mention that fraked series,was freaking ridiculous with the flying motorcycles,the time travel polt line,and the fact that somehow they were almost superheroes,jumping high etc,all they were missing was the laser eyes.

The original Night Stalker tv series had an episode, "Chopper," about a headless motorcycle rider . . . .

And, as for newspaper offices, you can count every single episode of THE NIGHT STALKER, THE CHRONICLE, LOIS & CLARK,THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, and a good chunk of SMALLVILLE.

Re: Looking 4 SciFi Eps with Motorcycles, Colleges, RealEstates

The serieses "Street Hawk" in the 80s and "Superforce" in the 90s both featured motorcycles.

The pilot episode of "The Flash" featured a motorcycle gang that took over Central City.

And the Lobo two-parter ("The Main Man") in Superman: The Animated Series featured Lobo's flying hog, as did the Justice League ep "Hereafter".

Didn't Ace Rimmer ride a motorcycle in Red Dwarf's "Stoke me a Clipper"?

I am assuming this is for thematic edited montages of these subjects. Or writing some type of college paper?

What you list is so general examples would endless. We could be more helpful if we had at least small idea of what its needed for. It would benefit your needs more.

The Sliders pilot that started it all features what is meant to be U.C. Berkeley, and it even has Professor Arturo teaching a graduate level Physics class.
