I remember watching this on BBC1 or 2 in the afternoons, I'm guessing on weekends, I couldn't, for years, remember the name of the show, just that there was a cat and a newspaper from the future. And one bit in a lift that stuck with me, turned out to be Fisher Stevens delivering a baby in an elevator XD
I somehow found out the name(I think it was due to Kyle Chandler...doing an IMDB check on him..) a few years ago and had to track down the DVD's. Sadly only seasons 1 and 2 are available on DVD, which means I'll probably see the end again, if I saw it in the first place.
About the actual series, for me its got a level of nostalgic value(whenever I heard the theme tune I almost tear up XD), which sort of clouds my judgement, but I KNOW its a good show(wouldn't have run for 4 seasons if it wasn't), its got great characters and the story's damn compelling! I still wanna know where the newspaper comes from... the cat...well the cat comes with it... I don't wanna spoil anything, its a mystery as well as a Drama-Fantasy.
Main cast -
Kyle Chandler - Gary Hobson
Shanesia Davis-Williams - Marissa Clark
Fisher Stevens - Chuck Fishman
Kyle Chandlers awesome. Saw him in Grey's Anatomy which probably made me IMDB him... didn't right away though, only did it when rewatching the boxset. Fisher Stevens is a odd one, Chuck's kind of annoying, but you love him anyway, he's more recently appeared in Lost, any actor thats been in Lost I'm cool with XD. And Shanesia Davis-Williams is brilliant, I shipped Gary & Marissa while rewatching season 1 XD
