I noticed the popularity of the "Spaced" thread and decided to post about this classic yet short-lived series.
I don't watch FoxFamily (Yes, I know it's owned by ABC now but at the time it was Fox) but a very nerdy sci-fi friend of mine suggested this show one day. It's about the starring quarterback of a small town football team who gets bit by a werewolf at a bonfire party with some fellow football players (It's a very gory scene and I laughed at the thought of children watching this) and becomes a werewolf himself. He gets help from the goth kid who has a locker next to him. They become fast friends and Tommy's werewolf powers start attracting demons, ghosts, zombies, other werewolves (in fact an evil clan of werewolves that want to rid the world of humans), Catwomen, mutants, poltergeists, and of course werewolf slayers. It only lasted three seasons and much like other classics struck down before their time (Futurama, Invader Zim, and TV Funhouse) it had a petition started by it's fans to save it (unlike the others however, it wasn't very long). The show had a ton of references to old horror/sci-fi movies/tv shows like Evil Dead, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Milfy the Vampire Slayer the name might be wrong), Catwoman, Class of 1999, The Wolfman, Star Wars, Star Trek, The Invisible Man, tons of comic superheroes and villians, Poltergeist, and so much more.
It was pretty much the American equivalent of "Spaced".

I did like this series. It had a lot of neat plots and the Goth kid was also a movie geek whose knowledge of which would often save the day. I'm generally a fan of scifi or paranormal shows anyway. That's all I really have to say about this.

On another note, that channel has not been the same since ABC took over. I liked it so much more as a Fox network, even though I hate Fox with a passion. The family channel was actually somewhat decent. Now it just plain sucks.

The end of a story is only the beginning.
