1996-08-16 00:00:00 - Worst fears confirmed.. - (timg@carbon.com)


Well, I've suspected for the past month or so that NWM was no longer since UPN has been advertising all of their new/returning shows very heavily, and sadly NWM wasn't one of them.. It truely makes me ill to think that they could give such an intellegent and interesting show the boot. I had not intentionally set aside time to watch TV since my late teens, untill Nowhere Man showed up. Great acting, great stories, a genuine sense of involvment, and ongoing direction. Anyway, I fear it's too late, but is anyone organizing a letter campaign to UPN? Does anyone think that'll help? I'm kicking myself for not having taped the series... (I've been watching the reruns, and they're almost as good the second time.. In 5 years it would be nice to revisit them) Just my 2 cents, Tim Gary Carbon Based Corporation

They probably won't listen, but it is a good idea to stand up for what we believe in. I don't know what their mailing address is, nor how to find it, so if anyone knows it or can get it, that would be great...better yet, there must be an e-mail address to someone over at UPN who would be high up on the ladder.

You can find multiple UPN addresses as well as e-mail and snail mail addresses of the other networks at http://pages.prodigy.com/nowhere-man It is a web page devoted to saving NwM. Click on the link for project: Alliance. Each day we send one e-mail and one snail mail to a tv network or production studio encouraging them to pick up NwM. On August 26, the day UPN starts their fall season, their official web site will go online at http://www.upn.com They will provide an e-mail address.

I see, you ridicule a guy because he has a life, and isn't up on every little bit of news from the world of network TV ... Some people watch a little tube for a diversion, others go to conventions and wait for press releases and know the day it happens when a show is cancelled or renewed... Get off his back... P-t-K

Thanks for posting these page addresses. They probably need to be reposted once a week or so since I didn't know about them. I've written 3 e-mails to various locations so far, and plan to followup with a letter this weekend.. Let's go poeple! I can't be the only one who just found out can I? Anyone not written a note to some of the sites above?? Thanks also to those maintaining the web pages! -Tim

"Git yer Giant babies who channel Elvis and Big Foot finds O. J.'s knife! stories here, folks." Its really sad to see a newsman that I had respect for reduced to fronting for twaddle like that with nary a wink, or a smile, to let on that it could be taken as tongue in cheek. Alan Bell
