Indeed it is!

Phooey on me for not knowing there was a TV series made. The clue certainly sounded like Evil Dead to me.


Just started watching it this weekend. It is full of Evil Dead goodness!

I will count this. It is actually the original Charmed. I believe the reboot is not set in San Francisco. I do not support remaking of shows, so I not 100% sure.

I meant original or reboot. I thought that the reboot was set in San Francisco, but I see that it was moved to a fictional city. I tried to watch it, but couldn't get past the second episode.

In a dystopian near-future Los Angeles, residents live under a regime of military occupation by the government. The main family works against itself- one working for the government, and the other against. But when they learn what is really going on, they work together to bring down the government and their shadowy controllers.

The man had hidden his identity because the government was rounding up people that had skillsets like his.

That's it! Sad that it was canceled right as it was getting to the alien part.

It was cancelled? I have the first series recorded; haven't actually watched it yet! (There were many, many ads for the series.)

Clue:

A cool car and someone who doesn't exist.

Apparently so: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadillacs_and_Dinosaurs_(TV_se...)

I had to search for that, so not the right answer.

The show by necessity changed gears a few times. During those changes of gear, some who were hooked by the premise of the show instead of the story that they were telling jumped ship. It was a great show in my opinion, but others would call those changes in the story 'jumping the shark'.

Until I actually see it, I suppose I won't know whether it goes truly Dark Angel.

Funny that you mention that one... it's one that I have in the queue. I was going to watch it... heard bad things and didn't. Then recently I heard good things and thought I should make up my own mind.

Dark Angel, in the second season, goes in a totally different, and weird, direction to the first. The first season is almost certainly SF. The second, not so much.

Not that either season is bad. They just don't seem to be about the same story.

On one of those Hollywood back lot tours we saw Josh Holloway step out of the sound stage building or whatever those studio buildings are called while filming Colony! Must have been an early season since they moved to Vancouver for season 3 I think.

I think the move to Vancouver was after the ratings went down and they were trying to cut costs.

I'll guess The Good Place, but I'm fairly certain that's not right.

I've never seen it, but it seems plausible based on the clones(?): Orphan Black?
