This series was shown in my region of Britain in a ridiculous lunchtime slot, as 'filler.' As a result whenever I have mentioned it to people over the years, I get a glazed look in their eyes, and the question: 'Tenspeed & what?'
I seem to recall a senior US network executive called the introductory film the best 'pilot' he'd ever seen; I caught the second half of the pilot and was instantly hooked.
For the following few weeks I used to cycle home from school, watch the show and then cycle back late, ditching Physical Education class. (It's ok, I turned out alright).
It ended too soon but sometimes - when a show is cancelled - we can at least treasure it as something, which didn't run too long and eventually go off the boil...
The Tenspeed character resurfaced years later in the show JJ Starbuck, which has so far not been shown in Britain. I hope that gets released too.
