The Block

created by  Will Hines, Matt DeCoster

"The Fun Squad" was Channel 102's first-ever #1 show, and remains first in the memories of all who've seen it. Ex-Squaddies Will Hines and Matt DeCoster returned with "The Block," whose low-budget, high-concept style borrowed equally from "The Fun Squad" and cult NYC movie "The Warriors." Audiences gobbled up the first two episodes and begged for more. But weather and deadlines finally conspired against "The Block," forcing an indoor change of pace for episode three, and the audience asked for the check.
