I'm not sure of that FOX-68 here doesn't show it to my knowledge, anyone
in viewing distance of Syracuse correct me on that one?

I think you're dealing with an individual Fox synidcate there.

Ok, Ok...I know I said I was going to boycott, but my mom was watching

advertised that "Will Natalie loose her mind when Nick develops amnesia?
Don't miss Forever Knight tonight at 9 on USA"

For those who can FTP or don't have the time to WWW to Jamie's site, Laurie
has put most of the SOS-FK stuff on the List FTP site



It's an anonymous login.

Also, don't forget that Deb's 2nd season publicuty GIFS have just been
added--and don't they look NICE!  (Good job, Laurie!).  Check out the FKGIFS

Subject: Cutting hair.

Take it from someone who knows... cutting hair is not a wonderful idea.
I went to Manchester with waist-long hair, and came back with a long
braid and the rest of my hair short enough to stick up w/o hair spray.
It's now nearly a year later, and my hair can barely make it past my
collora (the braid went in May, btw).  Believe you me, lopping off double
digits of hair length is /not/ something that can be easily replaced.
Then again, I did look great an a Pernese riding helmet, but that's
another story. :)


Btw, if anyone onlist is in the Milwaukee area, drop me email at
jap8@c........  I'm visiting a friend up there and wouldn't mind
getting together with fellow fans. :)

Wasn't Ron kicked out of the NBFC also, and also for reasons that he
didn't know about (at least at the time he told us)?  If you do find out
why, please let me know privately.  I'd be real curious as to how someone
could get kicked out of fan club.

Subject: USA, FK and NIQ??!!  AARGGHH!

Okay Gang, what is up?  What happened to "Hearts of Darkness" which
was normally scheduled?  Of all the episodes this year, it's the only
one I don't have on tape, because my two-year old decided to play with
the VCR and taped over most of it with RUGRATS.

Thankfully, I can wait for my syndicate to repeat it and play the new
episodes... (Yup, we finally get a local station to pick it up in
Eastern Nebraska, and then WHAMMY!)  More letters will be going out.
My Syndicate, KETV, said they will continue to broadcast the rest
of the years show that come through, and would be interested in picking
it up again if offered.

I guess it's a good thing that I can't seem to sleep between the hours
of 2:00am and 4:00am.  Anybody who's interested, and in the Omaha, NE
viewing area, tune to:

                    KETV- Channel 7
                    2:00am Sunday Morning

They are scheduled to show STRINGS.

I have always liked Uncle. I never thought he was an evil person the way a
lot of people seemed to. He always seemed to me to have Nick's best
interests (or at least what he thought were Nick's best interests) at heart.
I suppose my perception could be coloured by the fact that I only started
watching in the second season, and in the first episode I saw, LaCroix was
*nice* to Nick!

However, now that I have seen the first and third seasons also, I don't see
any reason to change my judgement of Uncle. I still think he's not such a
bad guy. Although he did a lot more outwardly evil things in the first
season, there were also a couple of episodes where he looked after Nick
(like taking the blame for the problem with the civil war photographer in
"Unreality TV").

I think he still cares for Nick, and that Nick is only just noticing this
fact. I do NOT want LaCroix to become all sweetness and light, but I would
like it if he and Nick got on better.

Do I know how you feel!!  After all the years this show has been on in a
reasonable time slot when I wasn't watching it (stupid, stupid me!) only now
do I start to really love it.  I've only seen ONE whole episode, MBIAV, and
I'm anxiously waiting to find out if my station will air anymore next week or
not.  It's on at 10:00pm btw, stupid lucky me!  I don't deserve to get it at
a timeslot like that, considering I'm just a newbee, with all you poor
veterans out there getting it at some godawful hour.

I was watching tv last nite. I was bummed because FK was replaced last
nite with Silk Stalkings. However, I was hoping they would show it later.
Anyway, after Highlander is a show called C/Net. It's all about the
Internet and last nite they had a show about UFO's. They gave their
address and so I was  wondering if maybe one of us who has a home page
or knows how to do this (etc)  could email them and set up a link to them?

Not bad  and at least we know that they are receiving many letters from
us. Hopefully, they will pass on the word to USA and TriStar. :)

Here's another idea which I found from the Vampyres-L list:

There is a new magazine coming out called "Impaler" Here is some info I
got from the list about it and thought maybe we could send them a press
release or something. What do you think?
Impaler will be appearing twice in 1996 and  quarterly if possible in
1997. As the only lifestyle magazine for the Undead, we have 100%
freelance availability.

Subject: mail crash again-- Pine help?

     Dear list,   forgive me if I send a blank message; I don't have the hang
of this AOL program -- and don't particularly want to get it, since I miss my
Pine account.
    The help I want is re: the following situation:
    There are two or three huge pieces of mail in my pine inbox that have
occupied all the storage so that when I try to enter it, I get kicked back to
the Unix prompt with the message "bug detected in pine:  no more free
storage"    I have some saved-message files inside Pine that are inside
brackets, eg [fkfic] and [sos-useful] that I am unable to download to try to
create space.   I would be happy to be able to download the contents of my
inbox as well.
    The two or three pieces of mail in my inbox have multi-meg attached
files.  I believe if those can be removed -- either deleted or downloaded --
I'll be OK.  Does anyone know how to do this?
    My sysop/admin appear to be offline because of the blizzard.  We have
just gotten another hit of snow so I'm assuming they can't get to their
equipment for tomorrow as well.  That's why I'm troubling the list with this
problem.  Thank you all for indulgence and help.

     Incidentally, I usually troll through the list and try to bounce things
that are asked for. I can't do that until I'm back on pine because that's
where they are stored.  So I apologize to anyone who needs an address or
other info -- will try to catch up if Pine comes back up with  my inbox

Thanks, Laura/Apache

I wouldn't.  It's the conflict and contrast between the two of them

me if Nick destroyed him (he'd still be in flashbacks, so he wouldn't

        Why not send the shorn locks, artfully coiffed into several braids,
bound with black ribbon, to Kay Koplovitz (sic) with a note that the fans
are in mourning for the loss of Forever Knight and according to their
customs are cutting their hair to demonstrate it to the world.  We could

As suggested, I wrote back to WKBW last night, and got the following

concerned, the third season is going to be completed.  Unfortunately, she
ignored or did not respond to my queries about asking for the fourth season
at NATPE, or how she got the information that there wouldn't be a fourth
season offered.

Howdy all--I hate to duplicate info that may have gone out, but I seem to have
missed this warning on the list (I've been too busy to do more than skim my
digests this last few weeks.)

If you are printing/copying/handling/handing out the News Releases, please
check to make sure the URL is correct.


Jamie pointed out to me last week that it's CznJamiMR, NOT CznJamieMR--no "e".
 I sent out Emails to a few people warning them of the correction, but no one
emailed back that they'd fixed it.  My messages may not have reached them!  So
please *do* check.

Thanks, and sorry to be so paranoid & fussy.

I wouldn't like to see LC destroyed.  I'd like to see flashbacks where they
had a grand ol' time together.  They must have for at least part of the
first 700 or so years.  I sort of see LC as being "amused" by Nick's quest
now, rather than being angry.  Sort of like "Oh, it's a phase... a 100 year
phase, but a phase never the less."

Sounds like a wonderful idea!  I'll miss the Murder She Wrote re-runs, but I
can live with it.  I can't see supporting someone who thinks my needs and/or
wants would be met by drek like Campus Cops.  I'll even take it a step
further -- I'm going to write a letter to my local cable company complaining
about the abrupt downturn in the quality of programming on USA and ask them
to drop USA from their line-up (they did it once before, you never know).
I'll even cc: it to Ms. Koplovitz for good measure!

The NATPE Strike Force is assembled and ready to charge into battle.  The

Convention Center January 24.  Objective: a fourth fantastic season of Forever

Support your troops!  Write your local syndication station TODAY! Tell them to
ASK for Forever Knight at NATPE!

I MEAN IT! WRITE! DO IT NOW!  Then e-mail Karen Tobin and tell her what
station you wrote to.  As of yesterday, our station-contacted count is only

C'mon folks, I KNOW you can do better than that!  If we, your Strike Force,
can take time off work *and* use our own money to get there, *and* face down
Corporate Leaders in the name of saving FK, YOU can write a letter to your
station, so our time and effort are not wasted!

WRITE NOW to your local syndicated station. DO NOT DELAY.  These people will
be leaving for NATPE at the end of next week, and Monday IS a Federal holiday.


Then get involved in Forever Knight Appreciation Week!

DO IT, people!  We NEED your help to succeed in this! Without all of you
contacting your local syndicated stations, we, the Strike Force, might as well
stay home.

Subject: SOS-NAPTE: We Have Ignition!

The NATPE bags were ordered as of today.  Total cost, NOT including express
shipping to Las Vegas, will be $3300.

As of today, I have less than $2000 in pledges.

We are COMMITTED to pay for these bags.   Our supplier is doing us an
*incredible* favor by rushing them through in this time frame.

So, if you have pledged, mail your check, payable to Laurie Cohen Fenster, to:

P.O. Box 00000
Xxxxxxxxxx, XX  00000-0000

If you haven't, e-mail me with the amount you'll be sending and THEN mail the
check.  $10, if possible.  More, if you can afford it.

We have a $1300+ short-fall, and still have to cover shipping.

Mail your checks NOW.  The bags will be completed on 1/18, and must be paid
for at that time, so if possible, please mail your check by 1/15.

Also, we need to get NATPE flyers/brochures printed up. Anyone who is willing
to copy 1000 double-sided sheets and mail them to our hotel in Las Vegas,
e-mail me NOW.

We need 20,000 flyers/brochures!  That means at LEAST 20 volunteers willing to
copy 1000 flyers each.  CONTACT ME!

This is an excellent idea, something we can plan for, and gain more
support for.  Hit them in the "pocketbook" so to speak.  Let them know,
that even in a month's time, after they've walked away so arrogantly, that
we still have the power to hit back, and we have long memories!  But for
now, if they're out, forget about them and concentrate on TriStar.

Should we be looking for another network to pick it up, or what would be
involved here?  Would it be inappropriate to write to another network,
send them some comments from some of the reviewers, fans and affiliates,
and ask them if they'd be interested in  the product?  How is this
handled?  Can we take an active part in searching for a new home?

That's a good cousine, Celeste. Let's scare our new members. Maybe we can

I have a copy of Post Crypt, but it's been converted to Amiga

Conventions: Also consider any local gaming  (Role-playing, i.e.,
dungeons and dragons, etc. - email me if you've never heard of it and
I'll give more details) conventions. Many gamers are also fans of FK
(and vampire fans in general, I know 'cause I've talked to many of
them myself <g>) and would probably lend a hand to the cause.
