HARSH REALM Lives!
Well, in history at least.

Frank Garcia and Mark Phillips have just completed (2008) a comprehensive research book, "Science Fiction Television Series 1990-2004", which covers the histories of 58 shows.

One of the shows featured in the book (which covers the show history from creation to cancellation) is Harsh Realm, which contains exclusive interviews with series producer Daniel Sackheim and comic book creator James Hudnall.

"Science Fiction Television Series 1990-2004" should be out by the time you read this. The work features interviews and remarks by actor/ director/ producters Anthony Michael Hall, Bill Mumy, Bruce Boxleitner, David Ogden Stiers, Dean Haglund, Jonathan Frakes, Luke Perry, and Malcolm Jamal Warner (among many others).

For those who really read credits (like me), you'll also hear from writer/ creator/ producers Greg Bear, Gretchen Berg, James Hudnall, Jane Espenson, Jeri Taylor, Joe Menosky, Kathryn Reindl, Melinda Metz, Melinda Snodgrass, and Rockne O'Bannon not to mention producer /director /creators David Nutter, James Cameron, Joe Napolitano, Manny Coto, Michael Piller, Pen Densham and Tracy Torme (also among many others!)

You can get the book from Amazon by clicking the little ad below


or you can order directly from the publisher at http://mcfarlandpub.com/


Garcia and Phillips also authored the book "Science Fiction Television Series 1959-1989", which was released in 1996.

HARSH REALM TV in the USA
Harsh Realm was last seen in the USA in March 2000 when it returned for a full run of the pilot and all eight episodes on Fox's cable station fX. Since then Harsh Realm has disappeared back into the vast wasteland of Television Past, but if it does reappear, it might be on fX.

Harsh Realm has also appeared periodically on SPACE in Canada. HR is not currently on the SPACE schedule.

A good place for news and speculation about Harsh Realm is the newsgroup at alt.tv.harsh-realm. A well-written and informative FAQ is posted at the newsgroup. You can also go back to our title page and use the Harsh Realm Web Ring links to find other HR websites.

You will find a link to each Harsh Realm episode at the bottom of all pages on this site.

HARSH REALM Deep Realm Production Shots!
Here's something exclusive for the hard core HR fans out there!

DDeep Realm - an anonymous source we can only contact by pasting gaffing tape on our monitors in the shape of a big H - has "found" two pix of the HR crew working on "Kein Ausgang" (Episode Three of HR). This is the episode where the boys and Dexter get trapped in a WWII combat sim. The production shots show the crew setting up the climatic bridge scene. 

You'll find the thumbnails at the bottom of our Episode Three ("Kein Ausgang") page. Just click to be virtually transported behind the scenes! Cool, eh?

Thanks to Deep Realm! The rest of you check back here from time to time and see what other HR history turns up, OK?

Slightly OT: Kill Ugly TV - 10/09/02 
FLAtRich rants on the subject of genre TV shows, with an honorable mention for Harsh Realm.


Harsh Realm History
In October of 1999, Chris Carter launched a new show called Harsh Realm on the Fox Network, based on a 1993 comic book called Harsh Realm.

As a long-time fan of Mr. Carter's work, the mysterious powers behind fLAtDiSk SoftWorks and VRContinuum figured it might be appropriate to operate a fan site for the show.

Not being totally psychotic, this is hardly "complete un-official" site - you can look elsewhere for that - but it definitely has its merits. Think of it, rather, as a nice place to scarf up some HR media and info. And please tell your friends: all VCs are welcome!


Harsh Realm Cancellation History
Fox Network cancelled HR after just three shows were aired. Chris Carter confirmed it on the October 26th Art Bell radio show. You can download Real Audio of the show here.

Harsh Realm returned to the air in March 2000 on Fox's FX Cable station, but (as far as we know) it is not currently being shown in the United States.
