I rarely like TV as much as I liked this one. I wish USA had kept it on. I have so many fond memories of the plots and actually have some old BETA tapes of some of the episodes. The second and 3rd seasons were the best, IMHO, but the entire series was 5 stars of 5. For me to remember a show after all these years that was so little known says a lot about the quality of the writers etc.
