Thanks...and the best is yet to come. This coming week's
episode, "Messages From Earth," is probably the best thing we've done
on the series to this point.

The best techniques are always persistence, and organization;
if you can get others involved as well, in a concerted effort, that
always has an effect.

Some viewers have set up petitions at local SF-oriented
bookstores, which can also be a good place to start.

Thanks. I suggest you download Tapcis and use it; it makes
sorting through the threads a lot easier. Welcome to the club.

The last V movie ended with the armistice, as I recall; and 3
acts means the 3 dramatic sections between commercials.

This would've followed the last version, and have been truer to
the original miniseries.

Problem isn't WB, it's the shrinking syndication marketplace
that's making it more difficult for shows not affiliated with one of
the webs or weblets to find a home.

No, that comment came when I was still a reporter with the
late, lamented LA Herald Examiner, when the V series was still in
production, by one of the producers of the series.
