1996-01-09 00:00:00 - How I Pulled My Dad Into the Conspiracy - (Shhhh@hair.net)


Having watched NwM since the beginning, I had talked on and on about it to anyone who hadn't seen it already. Friends, family...especially family. Of course, I couldn't convince my parents to watch the show. Sounds too weird, they remarked. Slowly but surely, I kept telling them about the latest episodes in the hopes that they would watch it and possibly even enjoy it. I'd tell them about what happenend to Tom, when Tom did this or that, when his wife showed up...blah, blah, blah...all to get the interest stoked. Last night, Dad watched the first episode. This morning, all he could talk about how great the show is and how he could really enjoy a show like that. He asked me a billion questions about what has happened to Tom since the first episode so I spent about an hour re-capping everything up to the Christmas episode. Needless to say, my dad is hooked. Keep up the good work, Larry. You have another convert in the ranks. Cheers, Chris

Sounds like what happened with my mother and a couple of my friends. I had to keep harrassing them over and over to watch it but it finnaly worked, in different ways. The first episode my mom saw was the Christmas one (oh great that sure made sense to her ;-) but she has gotten many of her questions answered from "Absolute Zero". My friends are a different story. One of them is hooked on Voyager. Why? I can't figure it out (try DS9, it has a point). But he never hung around afterwards for Nowhere Man. After I saw an episode and loved it, I only watched one more before I was blabbling about it all the time. I finally got her to check it out. Another one of my friends is hooked on X-Files, so it was an easier sell. I'll keep trying to get more people till the idiots at UPN decide to get rid of Nowhere Man in exchange for a couple of "new hip comedies" that nobody watches. -Brian the Snorf ________ / \ ____/ O \ ( \________________________________________ / _____/ \ / \_____ MAY THE SNORF BE WITH YOU! \____/ \ / \________________________________________________/ | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | ///// ///// ///// /////

I have been telling her how great the show is for months, but she never watched it because it competed against Monday Night Football. She finally watched the pilot, though, and she's hooked. Not only did she call me during every comercial break to ask me 20 questions, but she has already asked to borrow my tapes of the entire season to date. Hey, word of mouth is an incredible thing. Spread the word, everyone! Tom (and Larry) deserve our support! Chris Benson
