I was/am a fan of this show, I was surprised that it was cancelled after just one season.

Re: Raven (1992-1993)

bump.

This is probably the last show that I would have expected to have a soundtrack but I found one in a used CD bin a while back. When watching the show when it originally aired over 20 years ago, I had never noticed that the music of the show was composed by Christopher Franke of Tangerine Dream fame. That immediately got my interest in buying the used CD and after listening to the CD, I decided to revisit the whole series which is available on youtube. The series lasted about 20 episodes.

I find that for a show that aired over 20 years ago, the action / fight sequences were actually very well done back then. No shaky cam / quick edits and it looks like most if not all of the fights sequences were done by the lead actor Jeffrey Meek. Too bad it was cancelled so soon midway in it's 2nd season as ithe show was a lot fun. The setting in Hawaii is gorgeous and Lee Majors as the drunken private investigator sidekick is hilarious. I think it's the last decent martial arts show that I can remember that aired on network TV.

Can anyone think of any recent martial arts shows ?

My friends and I loved this show and were super pissed when it was cancelled and replaced with Walker Texas Ranger. We've never forgiven Chuck Norris.
