How many people here think that ABC will be the network to buy Nowhere Man? I think that will be the one! Lee

Although I love the show, and would like to see it renewed, I really have doubts about ABC. They'll probably turn it into some soap opera Lois and Clark type thing. And then they'll start putting humour in it, and have a crossover with Home Improvement, and make Tom a guest star on Tool Time, or bring Wilson on Nowhere Man as one of "them". But I might be wrong and it could be a good thing. We'll just have to wait and see... -MKS

The programmers would probably worry that us viewers would get confused about wheather NWM was a comedy or Home Improvement was a drama (well... it's /not/ funny...). One thing that I can just about guarantee, though, if NWM ends up on ABC, "Next week, a very special Nowhere Man: Tom Vail takes crippled children to Disney World and learns the real meaning of the war has stumbled in." _________________________________________________________________________ -Microsoft Network is prohibited from redistibuting this work in any form, in whole or in part.

Look at it this way, if it's renewed and it sucks, DON'T WATCH IT! If it's renewed and it's good, WATCH IT! What's to lose? SAVE NOWHERE MAN! Check out my Nowhere Man website with news, ideas, theories, campaigns to save the show, and more. http://pages.prodigy.com/nowhere-man

I can't imagine ABC taking the show, especially since they gave up on Twin Peaks Jay

I mailed them, and recieved this response: No, we will NOT be picking up NOWHERE MAN. We had to make space for a few new shows this year and in the process lost good FOX shows such as SPACE, KINDRED, STRANGE LUCK, PROFIT. We would pick up one of those shows first before we would consider picking up NOWHERE MAN Thanks for writing MJ FOX Scheduling

I think FOX is much the better network as far as taking a hands-off approach to reworking the whole premise. With their success with X-Files after it's rocky start, I feel they might be more inclined to micro-manage a show that shows promise like Nowhere Man does. However, if they won't pick it up, I too, would be happy with ABC.

I watched the entire runs of both Space and Strange Luck. Both had great potential that was rarely explored. I found a single episode of each that really gelled into a show I'd want to watch. Same goes for American Gothic on CBS. But Nowhere Man was great nearly every week. david

Actually, the reason why Space was cancelled, first and foremost, is because it didn't get any ratings and had an incredibly HUGE budget. -Augie, still bitter over last year's VR.5 debacle with FOX -- -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Augie De Blieck Jr. * "I've got to start drinking more.

Now, the network I'd like to see NwM on would be Fox. I think NwM is perfect for the target audience Fox goes after. Plus, we might even get to see a Nowhere Man/X-Files crossover. -- "Just dig a hole that is deep enough, and everyone will want to jump into it." -Sum Chin, Zen Philosopher -Glyph~

I missed an episode > of Nowhere Man to watch it (although I taped the NwM episode). I too enjoyed Profit. Like NwM, it had an interesting concept involving conspiracies, but from a different angle. It also was able to build suspense well, something which Kindred and Space:Above and Beyond weren't able to do consistently. Did anybody else have trouble with scheduling tv watching time? In the Philadelphia area, Nowhere Man and Profit were scheduled at the same time. I ended up watching NwM on my black and white tv while taping Profit on the color tv (which was the only tv with a vcr) since I wanted to see the babes in color. ;> The real bewilderment for me was when Murder One had two hour episodes. Then, my three favorite new shows were on all at the same time. Of course, NwM won everytime (I just -had- to watch each new show when it came on). Thanks Larry Hertzog for a great season. Too bad it didn't continue.
