Odyssey, The (Series) (1992-1994)

Odyssey, The
The Odyssey was a family drama series which chronicled the subconscious adventures of eleven-year-old Jay Ziegler who ended up in a coma after falling out of a treefort. As he lay in hospital, watched over by doctors, nurses and his mother (the Upworld), Jay's mind journeyed to another world - one without adults (the Downworld). Jay's two worlds were strangly parallel as he struggled to regain consciousness and to understand his new world where children live in tribe-like clubs, supervised from a distant tower by the mysterious fifteen-year-old Brad.

In the Upworld, Jay fought for his life in a hospital bed; and in the Downworld, Jay's quest was to resolve the five-year-old mystery surrounding the death of his father.

Produced by Water Street Pictures Ltd in association with the CBC and B.C. Film.

My dad and I loved to watch this show. I believe it was on Monday nights. I had a crush on Macro... Still do I think...
