Welcome to WaTchers: The Virtual Series!

Five Years..120 Episodes...Not Too Shabby...

Each Watchers season contained 24 episodes that began in September 2002 with our final episode airing June 2008.

We don't create new episodes any longer (and we have no plans to start again so please don't ask). We're sure once you see everything we put into these episodes, thanks to many talented people over the years, you might understand - it's a lot of time consuming work.  However, if our fans decide to stick around we're happy to consider the prospects of TV movies now and then.

From a wealthy family in California, James Wells wasn't expected to pursue a career in the "lowly" field of computer science. With a genius IQ in multiple aptitudes, James's parents imagined much greater things. But despite his family's wishes (or maybe because of them), James chose to follow his heart.

His first big job was with Hubris, Inc., the Council's chief competitor, where he immediately distinguished himself and earned several promotions. James was eventually lured away from Hubris by the Watchers Council, who put him in charge of its main computer center. Although he now made more money and had more responsibility, James soon found his initially challenging job degenerating into boring repetition-a situation which led to several small computer indiscretions, including his tinkering with payroll and his creative use of the network's massive bandwidth. Because of his extraordinary skills and efficient work, the Council quickly forgave his minor missteps.

When Councilor Sebastian Giles, Colonel Jocasta Rosenberg, and Slayer Katherine Allison entered the computer center on February 14, 2130, James knew he was in trouble-and in more trouble than usual. His suspicions were confirmed when Giles and Jocasta asked him to give them access to the Progenitor File, the restricted database consisting of the journals, diaries, and records of Willow Rosenberg. Though Giles promised that he would take full responsibility, James worried that at the very least he would lose both his job and his tech rating and at the worst he would be arrested and sent to a correctional battalion. Having already viewed the encrypted files documenting the existence of the captured cyber-vampire, James reluctantly granted their request. His compliance allowed Giles and Jocasta to gain the information they needed to stop the attempted overthrow of the Council by Tyrell and his fellow High Commanders. With the 314 Project destroyed but Tyrell still in power, James fears he will lose everything.

James is a hacker of the highest order, able to bypass the tightest security and to crack the Council's toughest encryptions. He has an interest in the "literature" (i.e. pop culture) of the 20th century, often making references to works and events that no one else understands. Assisting James in the computer center is his android, Anya, a bossy synthetic from the "twitchy" Hyperdyne series.
