* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: As a OneSeasonWonder, it never got any sort of home video release.



* RecycledSet: Despite being a WalkingTheEarth series, the hotel rooms that Chapel stays in are all the same. Justified in that they're all part of the same hotel chain.
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: If you want your scripted series to succeed, don't put it up against [[Series/{{Friends}} a rival network's best-rated show]].

Added DiffLines:

* EngineeredPublicConfession: This is how Chapel gets one persistent fangirl off his back, by making the perp who she idolizes admit to the murder he's targeting him for, with her watching via hidden camera.

In a post-O.J. world, when people really wanted their vengeance served to them on a silver platter, Creator/{{ABC}} delivered: a 1998 series that starred MichaelMadsen as Mr. Chapel, a vigilante who makes sure those bad guys who thought they got away don't really get away. Someone killed your father and blamed your husband? Someone cashing in on a book deal after getting away with offing someone you hold dear? One quick call to Chapel, and he'll make all your problems go away. Even better, [[TechnicalPacifist he doesn't use guns, nor does he kill anyone.]]

The series was quite critically panned for its subject matter, as Chapel did some mighty bad things, and the timing of its release--as noted, right after the O.J. trial. Creator/{{ABC}} thought it good enough to go up against the juggernauts on Thursday nights. Unfortunately, [[TooGoodToLast the gambit failed]], and the series was canceled after 16 episodes, the last of which was named "Friends", in deference to [[Series/{{Friends}} the show that vanquished it]].

* OpenHeartDentistry: When Mr. Chapel gets shot, he calls in a favor. Problem is, no doctors owe him a favor...but a veterinarian does.
