Post Mortem: The WB and UPN

Sarah Michelle Gellar by Richard Cartwright/FOX

It seems like a more innocent time, when a haircut could rock an entire network. But that's what happened when Felicity star Keri Russell's trademark curly locks were shorn during a summer hiatus in 1999. The early WB fave was never the same after that follicle debacle. Susanne Daniels, who was the creative executive behind many of the network's early successes, and Variety deputy editor Cynthia Littleton have recounted the wild ride of the short-lived six network era in Season Finale: The Unexpected Rise and Fall of the WB and UPN (Harper Books). When reading the story, it's hard to believe two over-the-air broadcast networks were launched only a dozen years before we made a habit out of watching TV on our computers. Both UPN and the WB (which merged to become the CW last year) were born out of their studio-owners' fear that once the government allowed the established networks to produce their own series, they would be shut out of prime time. That never happened. But the youth-orie... read more

Sons Daughters It was another...

Sons & DaughtersIt was another double-shot Tuesday night for Cameron and his crazy family. The first episode reminded me never to borrow money from my siblings. On one hand, when it comes to family, there's no financial interest to pay. But it's the "emotional interest" that kills you. Borrowing $1,500 from Sharon meant Cameron had to sit through Don's pathetic play and work concessions during intermission. If you've never witnessed a painful performance by a friend (let alone a brother-in-law), trust me, you'd rather be in debt up to your eyeballs. Sharon (played by Alison Quinn), by the way, is seriously stealing this show. Not only is she the most hilarious deadpan character ever, I looked up her bi read more

Writer Damian Kindler and director...

Writer Damian Kindler and director Peter DeLuise (Dom's scion, of 21 Jump Street fame) indulged their obvious fondness for Star Trek's "Amok Time" episode for this tale that landed Mitchell in the clutches of a Jaffa warrior sect that follows the Ori. Forced to bolt through the Stargate in a hurry, SG-1 had to leave the wounded Cameron behind. On the positive side, Mitchell's foes nursed him back to health. The bad news was they did this just so he could be trained to fight in a ritual clash to the death. Mitchell's quandary recalled that scene in Stanley Kubrick's Paths of Glory when Private Arnoud received a skull fracture and was bandaged up just so he could be shot. (By the way, Arnoud and his two fellow comrades "died wonderfully," according to the French general who executed them to save his own butt, but I digress.) No, Kindler and DeLuise aren't Kubrick, but who is? Obviously Mitchell had to squirm out of this jam alive an read more

Can you tell me who played ...

Leading man: Hunter's Dryer and Kramer

Question: Can you tell me who played Hunter on the old TV series by that name? Thank you.

Answer: That was former All-Pro defensive end Fred Dryer, who spent three years with the New York Giants and 10 with the L.A. Rams before grabbing a very big gun and hitting the streets as tough-guy detective Rick Hunter on the NBC series. From the TV house of Stephen J. Cannell (The A-Team, The Rockford Files, 21 Jump Street, Wiseguy), the show ran from September 1984 to August 1991 and initially focused on Hunter, a tough, take-no-prisoners, obey-no-superiors kind of cop and his equally cantankerous, red-tape-hating partner, Dee Dee McCall (Stepfanie Kramer). As the series progressed, however, Hunter ran through a few lady partners, which some said was a result of strife behin read more

Premise: Young L.A. cops go undercover in high schools in this teen-oriented police drama, which helped jump-start the new Fox network in 1987. It was the network's most-watched show that first year, and Booker became an insurance investigator who spun off to his own short-lived series. The title, incidentally, is the address of the unit's station house, a converted chapel.
