M.A.N.T.I.S. (TV Series 1994–1995)50K
M.A.N.T.I.S.: Created by Sam Hamm, Sam Raimi. With Carl Lumbly, Roger Rees, Chris Gartin, Galyn Görg. A paralyzed African-American scientist builds a powerful exo-skeleton in order to walk again, and uses his new abilities to fight crime.
“Sam Hamm and Sam Raimi are super heroes of Hollywood, propagating ideals of tolerance and hope through the super hero genre in prime time TV. This show isnu0026#39;t extra sexy like Gossip Girl, or extra morbid like CSI, or drowning in its larger than life production values like Smallville (which may or may not be sponsored by Highlighter markers, ease off on the lighting gels guys!) Itu0026#39;s an understated super hero drama that definitely paved the way for a more realistic approach to heroes, like we see now in Iron Man and The Dark Knight. The ep, u0026quot;Gloves Off,u0026quot; is a real turning point for the Mantis and one worth checking out on Hulu, if youu0026#39;ve never seen one. Iu0026#39;d love to see this show revisited, now that we see that shows like Buffy, Smallville, and Fringe can be incredibly popular. Plus, CG has come a long way since then. Thanks guys and thanks for making it available on Hulu. Much love, from a viewer who was left changed for the better.”
