Vengeance Unlimited complete 

is a TV series broadcasted during 1998-1999 which lasted for just one season of sixteen episodes. The show starred Michael Madsen as Mr. Chapel, a mysterious and pragmatic character keen on serving justice to those who have been ignored by the law (similar to The Equalizer). The show originally aired Thursdays at 8:00 pm up against Top 5 hits Friends and Jesse.

When Mr. Chapel takes a case, his demand is simple. Either pay a very high fee, $1 million, or promise to do him a favor at some time in the future whatever, whenever and wherever he needs you then your debt will be paid in full. In the series pilot, it becomes clear that Mr. Chapel has been doing this for quite some time, as he calls in more than one such favor to help his clients. A running joke throughout the series came whenever one of Mr. Chapel's former clients paid their debt. Mr. Chapel would say, "We're even. I'm out of your life. Forever." The client would invariably respond, "Thank God!"

Chapel makes few promises. Those that he does make, he will fulfill (or die trying). On one occasion, he handcuffs one man in a car, with a dump truck hurtling toward it; when the man gives in, Chapel dives into the car to unlock the cuffs and pull the man to safety at the last instant.

Emlyn's Moon was the second in The Snow Spider Trilogy written by a great children's author Jenny Nimmo. It was often suggested (unfairly in my opinion) that the books were difficult to get into because of the complicated subject of child loss (for more information see the Snow Spider pages on Little Gems).

Shoot to Kill is a four-hour drama documentary reconstruction of the events that led to the 1984–86 Stalker Inquiry into the shooting of six terrorist suspects in Northern Ireland in 1982 by a specialist unit of the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC), allegedly without warning (the so-called shoot-to-kill policy); the organised fabrication of false accounts of the events; and the difficulties created for the inquiry team in their investigation. 

The film, written by Michael Eaton and directed by Peter Kosminsky, was made for Television, and screened in two parts over successive nights in June 1990. However, the programme was not broadcast in Northern Ireland itself, a precaution that Ulster Television said reflected legal advice that it might prejudice future inquests on the deceased, which had been suspended.

Sunset Beach, the one-hour daytime drama from Aaron Spelling, premiered January 6, 1997. It was both Spelling's first daytime venture and the first new serial to hit the television airwaves in eight years. The show has developed a solid fan base that Soap Opera Digest called "remarkable for a newcomer" and it didn't take long for the show to become a cult hit here in The UK. Set in a small coastal California community, Sunset Beach made its mark on television by combining traditional daytime drama storytelling with the natural beauty of Southern California's beach locations and was supported by a talented and ethnically-diverse cast. TV Guide noted that "Sunset Beach had become a cult hit with growth potential" for the daytime serial viewer. This fact had become particularly true with teen viewers who enjoyed Sunset's suspenseful and quirky storylines like "Terror Island," a take-off on the popular Scream movies. Also popular was the storyline "Shock Wave," highly publicized earthquakes followed by a treacherous tsunami which caused mayhem at the beach. Sunset Beach also blended real-life news into its storyline, such as the Presidential scandals. Sunset Beach featured some of the most recognizable and popular stars on television as well as the hottest newcomers to daytime. They portrayed core family members and friends living in Sunset Beach who came from all walks of life-rich, poor, heroes, villains, lovers, friends and enemies. Families such as the Richards, the Deschanels, the Torres and the Cummings, were all interwoven, often coming together at the funky blues/rock club, The Deep, or at the cyber coffeehouse, Java Web. They worked as police officers, lifeguards, reporters, waiters, lawyers and restaurant owners.
