Trevor Garfield (SAMUEL L. JACKSON), a dedicated Brooklyn high-school science teacher, struggled to work within a system where the pursuit of education sometimes took a back seat to the ongoing battle merely to stay alive. He watched his school being transformed into a war zone, his pupils split into camps -- the few eager to learn increasingly outnumbered by those angry at a world that did not include them. Those students began to answer questions with violence.
Working in this siege state, Trevor found his commitment stretched beyond the limits of reason. When he refused to pass one of his volatile and sociopathic pupils, the student retaliated by stabbing Trevor in the back, leaving him on the brink of death.
One year later, his wounds scarred and his spirit shaken, Trevor returns to teach in a Los Angeles school and finds himself in the same world of amorality and violence he had hoped to leave behind. To his new colleagues, Dave Childress (JOHN HEARD), a victim of teacher burn-out, and Ellen Henry (KELLY ROWAN), a fresh and hopeful instructor, he is both a reluctant hero and an inspiring enigma. To most of his new students, he is a cipher to be disregarded.
But Trevor's dedication has been tainted with something darker -- he finds himself challenged by school administrators rendered impotent by their fear of possible litigation and confronted by a group of desperate students who would rather fight than learn. And now, no one is quite sure just how far this transformed man will go.

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation took television by storm in 2000 with its innovative and cutting-edge updating of a standard series concept – in this case, the cop show. Suddenly, instead of simply whodunit, solving crimes was a matter of howdunit, and with what size shoe, and whether anyone left behind traces of evidence that the blue ALS light could pick up.
The O.C. is an idyllic paradise, a wealthy, harbour-front community where everything and everyone appears to be perfect. But beneath the surface is a world of shifting loyalties and identities, of kids living secret lives hidden from their parents, and of parents living secret lives hidden from their children. 'The O.C.' tells the story of the Cohen, Cooper, and Nichol families, and Ryan Atwood, a troubled teen from the wrong side of the tracks, who is thrust into this world, and who will forever change the lives of the residents of The O.C.
"The victims, the cops, the press and the politicians...each has their own perspective." Boomtown depicts crime in Los Angeles from the very different perspectives of the four groups most intimately involved in the pursuit of justice -- the police, the citizens, the politicians, and the media -- and artfully illustrates how they interconnect. Boomtown features Joel Stevens (Donnie Wahlberg, Band of Brothers) as an emotionally drained, dedicated detective; "Fearless" Bobby Smith (Mykelti Williamson, Forrest Gump) as Stevens' easy-going, daredevil partner; David McNorris (Neal McDonough, Minority Report) as a politically savvy and ambitious Deputy D.A.; Ray Hechler (Gary Basaraba, Brooklyn South) as a veteran patrol officer, and Tom Turcotte (Jason Gedrick, The Last Don) as a beat cop struggling to prove himself. Nina Garbiras (The $treet) stars as Andrea Little, a tough metro reporter whose private life is less than perfect and Teresa Ortiz (Lana Parrilla, Spin City) as a compassionate paramedic who has already seen too much suffering.

The team includes Catherine Willows, a hard-working single parent with a checkered past and a teenage daughter she's raising on her own; Warrick Brown, a top analyst with insider knowledge of the gambling world; Nick Stokes, a true-blue stand-up guy who empathizes with victims via his own experiences; and Greg Sanders, the wacky tech analyst turned field investigator. The CSI team members also work closely with Capt. Jim Brass, the former chief, now assigned to Homicide, Dr. Albert Robbins, the ever-professional medical examiner and David Hodges, a lab technician with a specialty in trace and foreign-substance analysis.

Welcome to the Sweating Bullets guide at TV Tome. This show was also know as Tropical Heat. The series - made in Canada, Mexico and as an Israel co-production - tells the story of two private investigatiors; ex-DEA agent Nick Slaughter and ex-travel-agency worker, Sylvie Girard. Mystery, adventure and romance fill this crime-drama with a sense of excitment. Picture the backdrop of a beautiful exotic island, in a town called Key Mariah. This show was part of 'Crimetime After Primetime', a CBS venture that aired after the local news at 11:00ET, before Letterman was on the network, from 1991-1992.
In the ranks of prime-time dramas, this was one of the biggest. Dallas , the saga of the Ewing Family, began as a five part mini-series in 1978. Throughout its thirteen seasons, many actors passed through the gates of Southfork. In the late 1960's, Peyton Place was a nighttime serial drama success-a novelty at the time. But since then, no P.M. show had caught the soap opera crowd's attention… until Dallas . The show first went on the air for a five week run in early 1978, and then fell into a Saturday nighttime slot later that year. Ratings were fair, but they were nothing compared to when the show moved to Friday nights, when the ratings well didn't run dry for a long, long time. The Ewing family lived at the sprawling South Fork ranch, in hoity-toity Braddock County just outside Dallas. Like any good power family, there was a matriarch and patriarch, and three sons- this core group, their extensive romantic relations, and the Barnes clan of rival oilers were all Jacobs needed to create a self-contained histrionic world of intrigue, dysfunction and passion. Borrowing from Romeo and Juliet, the youngest Ewing boy, Bobby, fell for a beautiful Barnes girl. And with a nod to the biblical Cain and Abel, Bobby and older brother J.R. didn't exactly play nice with each other like you might expect brothers to. Whereas J.R. was nearly a hundred percent scoundrel, Bobby had discernable streaks of honesty and integrity…but that patented Ewing viciousness certainly reared its head once in a while. The South Fork ranch housed Jock and Miss Ellie, the king and queen of South Fork, J.R. and long-suffering wife Sue Ellen, and Bobby and Pamela…though why they all lived under one roof demands a little poetic license, because money certainly wasn't a problem, and it wasn't like there was a whole lot of binding inter-family harmony. Here's just a taste of the drama devices that ensued: insane asylums, car accidents, affairs, illegitimate children, gunfights, fistfights, catfights, lies, drinking problems (both real and imagined), poufy 80's hairstyles for the ladies and best of all, notorious season finale cliffhangers.
Growing Pains was about a family of five, the Seavers, who lived on Long Island, New York. Jason Seaver was the father, a psychiatrist and Maggie, his wife, was a journalist.
Together, Maggie and Jason raised four children. They often worried about "who would stay home with the baby" or would "be there for the kids" and the responsibility was often juggled, even fought over, between the two parents but eventually settled. The youngest, Chrissy, wasn't born until the 4th season and suddenly "grew up" from being a toddler to a five year old between the 5th and 6th seasons. The oldest of the four children was Mike. A dare-devil yet charming, Mike helped Growing Pains ratings shoot sky high and quickly became the 80's pin up boy appearing on cover after cover of teen magazines.
