Tropical Heat

Tropical Heat is a Canadian action series produced in co-operation with Mexico and Israel that aired between April 8, 1991 to October 18, 1993. The series ran for three seasons totaling 66 episodes. Season one was filmed in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico due to tax breaks the production was eligible for under the North American Free Trade Agreement. Season two was filmed in Israel. Season three was filmed in South Africa, with some sequences shot in Mauritius; the plot revolves around private investigator, Nick Slaughter, an ex-DEA agent, who after arriving in the fictional resort town of Key Mariah and setting up a detective agency there, meets up with local tourist agent, Sylvie Girard, to solve a variety of different cases. Rob Stewart..... Nick Slaughter Carolyn Dunn..... Sylvie Girard John David Bland..... Ian Stewart Ian Tracey..... Spider Garvin Eugene Clark..... Ollie Porter Pedro Armendáriz Jr...... Lt. Carillo Ari Sorko-Ram..... Sgt. Gregory Allen Nashman..... Rollie Graeme Campbell..... Rupert The series was popular in Serbia, where it gained cult status.

In a tumultuous social environment – with a UN trade embargo imposed on the country and civil war raging nearby – Nick Slaughter's character became a tongue-in-cheek role model among urban youth, a symbol of opposition politics. During the 1990s, the series was broadcast on four Serbian television stations – TV Politika, NS+, RTS 3K, RTV Pink – and rerun numerous times. Aside from its dry humor and exciting plot, the show was well received because its idyllic tropical island atmosphere was an absolute contrast to mid-1990s Serbia; the reruns in the then-isolated country made the show immensely popular, turning it into a minor national cultural phenomenon. The notion of Nick Slaughter being a received hero in Serbia began in the Belgrade suburb of Žarkovo where, now-legendary, graffiti "Sloteru Niče, Žarkovo ti kliče" appeared. Soon afterward during the massive months-long protests throughout winter 1996–97 against the alleged election fraud perpetrated by Slobodan Milošević and his party at the November 1996 local elections, the slogan "Slotera Nika, za predsednika" became popular on banners and badges as a symbol of opposition to the regime.

Another popular slogan was "Svakoj majci treba da je dika, koja ima sina k'o Slotera Nika". Serbian punk band Atheist Rap paid a tribute to the series' protagonist in the song "Slaughteru Nietzsche" with its graffiti-based chorus "Sloteru Niče, Srbija ti kliče" on their 1998 album II liga zapad. In 2008, Rob Stewart performed the song with the band on stage. Many local bars and summer patios in Serbia were named Tropical Heat in honour of Nick Slaughter and the popular TV show, they were located along the rivers, to resemble "The Key Mariah Spirit". No one associated with the show was aware of its extraordinary popularity in Serbia until December 2008 when Canadian actor Rob Stewart who played Nick Slaughter in the series accidentally discovered it by stumbling upon a Facebook fan group named "Tropical Heat/Nick Slaughter" with some 17,000 followers. After familiarizing himself with the cause and the circumstances of his Serbian fame, the unemployed 48-year-old Stewart, along with a filmmaker friend Marc Vespi and his sister Liza, decided to attempt to make Slaughter Nick for President, a documentary about it.

To that end, they contacted the band Atheist Rap and it was soon arranged for Rob to appear on stage as their guest at the To Be Punk Festival in Novi Sad on June 6. By late March 2009 the news was leaked to Serbian press and several media outlets carried items that Rob Stewart would be coming to Serbia in May or early June as guest of Atheist Rap in order to film a documentary on his character's popularity in the country during the 1990s. Stewart and his partners contacted Srđa Popović, former activist of Otpor!, the Serbian student movement that played a significant role in bringing down Milošević. On June 3, 2009, Stewart arrived in Belgrade to a hero's welcome with enormous media attention afforded to his visit. With Atheist Rap and Popović as their hosts and guides through Serbia, in between the documentary shooting schedule, Stewart made the media rounds, appearing on talk shows, giving interviews, making public appearances such as planting of the maple trees in Žarkovo with John Morrison, Canadian ambassador to Serbia.

As a result of their June 2009 stay in Belgrade and Novi Sad, a six-minute documentary promo was put together and entered in the Roma Fiction Fest in Rome, Italy on July 8, 2009 under the "work in progress" section. Two episodes of the show were re-edited into Criss Cross. IMDb states this received a release in 2001. Tango Entertainment released the complete series on DVD on January 8, 2008 in a 9-disc set entitled Tropical Heat: Sweating Bullets Complete series.

Cherian

Cherian/Cheriyan is a Syrian Christian surname of West Asian origin, presumed to be a derivative of Zecharya and a variant of Zacharias popular among the christian community of Kerala, southern India. The final -n is the Malayalam third-person masculine singular suffix. In India it is found only as a given name although this trend is changing in the present generations, but in the United States and United Kingdom and Australia, it is used as a family name among expatriate families from Kerala; the accepted explanation is that this name is of Semitic origin, presumed to be a derivative of Zecharya and a variant of Zacharias. This is supported by the fact that Kerala was one of the chief centers for ancient spice trading between the West and East and there was a historic Nasrani community with religious, linguistic and genetic connections to the Levant and Middle East; the final -n is the typical Malayalam third-person masculine singular suffix. There is an alternative hypothesis suggesting an Armenian origin for the name.

This relies on the empirical observation that names ending with ian is probable to be an Armenian name. The original candidate Armenian name is Khatcherian which means “follower or son of the Cross”; this theory takes support from the fact that there have been significant presence of Armenians in India Chennai and Kolkata, who migrated to India to escape persecution from Turkey.
