Thanks very much, Matt.

 

I've only watched maybe the first third of each of these, but my immediate reaction is that the Notorious Seven was crap - but that may be because I couldn't buy into the humour. Coincidentally, I recently watched the Leslie Nielson movie "Naked Gun 2 1/2", which, if that was the same kind of humour as M&W were trying for, did it so very much better.

 

The "Wonder Cabinet" so far has worked much better for me, but it was too much like X-Files, and I can well understand 20th not wanting at the time (1999) to have two shows that had something of the same premise.

 

It's very interesting to have this glimpse into the past, but I'm not surprised that these pilots failed to be picked up.

Really wanted to check these out. Does anyone still have a copy? The links are no longer available, understandable as its been a while. Thanks!

Thank you Matt, much appreciated. Waited a very long time indeed to see these! The pops on the Megaupload sites (tried those links first) are horrendous but well worth it.

Was wondering if you still had access to these files? Really wanted to watch them but the links are no longer working because it's been so long.

Hi @ComeJoinTheMurder

Welcome to TIWWA! I think so, I'll have a look in my archives next time I'm on my PC (tonight or tomorrow).

Awesome name by the way, from an excellent song, from an excellent TV series! I may have to ask Alexa for my Sons Of Anarchy playlist right now!

Regards,

Graham

      Way back in the 1700s, wealthy men had rooms called "wonder cabinets", which were like their own private museums filled with all kinds of scientific curiosities. Fast forward to present time, where an institute in Philadelphia -- Der Wunderkammern -- that believes that mankind's supposed improvements throughout this century have knocked Nature out of balance... and Nature might be starting to fight back (witness the Ebola virus, AIDS, etc.) It is run by an unseen, wealthy "philanthropist", Mr. Swissky, who hires three people to investigate biological anomalies and monstrosities -- in this episode, the investigation revolves around a man with two heads.

      These lucky three include: Dr. Gordon Wayne, early 40s, a world-renowned heart surgeon who's haunted by a past failure (presently selling heart equipment); Sarah Coleman, 24, a brainy medical student who falls out of favour with her profs because she challenges the establishment; and Dr. Kevin Spitz, 30ish, a neurosurgeon with shaky ethics.

      The pilot began filming on March 22, 1999.

      Morgan & Wong were in the midsts of shooting their movie, "Flight 180" (now Final Destination) when they got the phone call informing them that the series was NOT picked up.

      A ring of mob-like leaders control 'The City', each family representing one of the seven deadly sins, hence the "Seven" in the title. The founder, Dante Alighieri, orders the families to cease and desist all illegal activities. This obviously doesn't go over too well with everyone else so they murder Dante and and frame his innocent, visiting son, Eddie. Wrongfully imprisoned and very angry, Eddie is mentored by an old black dude, Leadbelly and together they vow to bring down each family one by one.
