Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Debuting May 1, 2000, the British "dramedy" series Metropolis concerned itself with six friends who'd met while attending college. Keeping in touch after graduation, the six protagonists continued to be linked with one another physically, spiritually, and sometimes sexually. Presented by Granada Television, Metropolis was sabotaged by the network's decision to schedule the program on an irregular, erratic basis. Also, the series never quite made up its mind if it wanted to be a half-hour sitcom or an hour-long drama. At any rate, the whole affair was over and done with after five episodes on May 15, 2000.
