It Made You Think! Now, Give Me A DVD Set!
I wish this show had survived. It was very funny. They shot 9 episodes and only 7 ever aired. I guess that the trouble was that the larger part of the audience took the show too seriously. It was the wayward, out-in-left-field concepts that made the show so entertaining to those of us who didn't mind thinking a little bit.

The town mayor was an ex-actor named Manhatten, who came out to start and run his own town, Manhattan, Arizona

The Sheriff came to town after loosing his wife, to raise their son in a healthy environment (his wife died when her small craft was upset in the ocean during a ecology protest, and she was scooped up into the tuna fishing vessel and ultimately canned along with the fish)

Among the townspeople were some oddities, such as the old couple who lived in an underground bunker with an arsenal of military weapons (just in case!).

The town was adjacent to a secretive military base where the sheriff's girlfriend was serving. Odd things happened at this desert base.

Episodes included "The Killer Bees' and 'The Killer Sagaros', the later actually more plausible than you think.

Each episode would end with an actor off set explaining the episodes 'message' and would end with the phrase "We work in television. We know better than you".

I worked on 6 of these episodes for Stu Segall Prods. and wish that somebody would finally see fit to put them all in a DVD collection. Everyone I mentioned them to started watching them and taping them religiously. They were very creative and funny, a spoof for the intelligent among us.
