Saturday School: Strange Days at Blake Holsey High (2002)

When Discovery Kids (now The Hub) began programming NBC's Saturday morning block, they brought some diversity into the latter network's schedule that had been missing for some time. In addition to the return of animated programming to NBC, DK also had some live-action dramas, as opposed to NBC being overrun with sitcoms (teencoms) since the 90's.

One of those dramas was the Canadian-produced science-fiction series, Strange Days at Blake Holsey High, which spent 4 seasons on the air (2002-6). A decade earlier, it might've fit right at home with other live-action fantasy shows with a high school theme, such as ABC's Bone Chillers.

The final three episodes of the series were stitched together into a TV-movie, which was the last anyone had seen of Blake Holsey High. When DK became The Hub 3 years ago, the series was dumped in the network's vaults and has hardly been seen.

Here's the intro:

I didn't see enough of the show to merit a rating.
