 how can he make a statement like that plus he only saw the debut episode
 of Voyager.

 GW>        Among his most degrading entertainment assignments,
 GW> Shatner listed his role in the 1970's KINGDOM OF THE SPIDERS and his
 GW> late 1960's rendition of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds." He explained,
 GW> however, that the original cut included his reading from "Man from La
 GW> Mancha" intercut with his "interpretation" of the Beatles hit in order
 GW> to provide a sort of literary contrast of the times.  The purpose of
 GW> the release containing only "Lucy" was "to DEGRADE me!" Shatner
 GW> exclaimed. 

 Hey the man needed work! Plus he had been through a bitter divorce with
 his first wife which pratically left him pennyless and living out of his
 pickup truck.(he stated that on an interview with Howard Stern)

 GW> Shatner included "The City on the Edge of Forever" (which he labeled
 GW> "The City on the Edge of the River") and "The Trouble with Tribbles"
 GW> were his favorite Original Series episodes.  He also mused that the
 GW> show's finale "Turnabout Intruder" ("where a woman entered MY body!")
 GW> was one of his most unforgettable TOS shows.

 Bill must be suffering from memory loss. When I last saw him at a convention
 he stated that his favorite was "The devil in the dark"(the Horta episode)
 because his father died either just before filming began or while they were
 filming the episode.

 GW> Since we had our fill of Shatner and parking and seating
 GW> hassles, Teri and I didn't bother to stay for the rescheduled blooper
 GW> reel. If I was teaching at Teri's school where she works, I'd stamp a
 GW> fat D-plus (D+) for the convention's grade, with the only saving graces
 GW> being the informational bits and Shatner's appearance.  If I were to
 GW> repeat my oath from last year not to attend another Creation
 GW> convention, I'd gladly do so with crossed fingers. But I'd ALSO add the
 GW> caveat that Creation needs to come up with another convention site with
 GW> better parking and audience seating AND a convention host with a
 GW> tumbleweed's inkling about handicapped accessibility issues.

 Good idea!

 8:00 ET

 PA> Will it be competing with Babylon5?

 Who knows! If one of your local stations telecast B-5 on Wednesday's at
 8:00 then yes it will compete in your local station area not nation wide.



 PA> Possibly Sliders?

 Sliders is not on FOX's fall lineup but it hasn't been cancelled and may
 return as a mid season replacement somewhere in FOX's lineup. Not necessarily
 on Wednesday nights.

 What is so smart about that time slot?

 I have proof read Clarke introduction to the latest edition of 2001 in
 it he states that The Sentinel did not give rise to the idea for the film.
 Mow read the intro to 2010 in it Clarke stated that the book and movie 2001
 were made simultaneously. Clarke worked hand in hand with Kubrick. Feeback
 was given freely among them. The movie was released first followed a few months
 later by the book.

 Kubrick rewrote the screenplay changing Saturn to Jupiter. Clarke elected
 to keep Saturn as the focal point in the book.

 St> Sure, the STAR WARS trilogy were razzle-dazzle fun, but they lacked the
 St> palpable depth of 2001.

Against the law? So is mail fraud. BTW, it's NOT against the law to give their
PO Box # to ALL the junk mail senders in the world. :) (heheh)

Also, NO! The VNP does NOT work by email or post. You have to FAX it. (heheh)

Can anyone tell me that name of that 3rd Highlander movie? I've seen two
different versions and am not sure which one is the real one.
Highlander: The Sorcerer
Highlander: The Final Dimension.
  OLX 2.1 TD  Is it Immortal, or is it a Highlander.

You mention a couple of possible outcomes, to the sliders season finale.
Too bad none of them are even remotely going to happen since they
cancelled it. Oh well, we will just have to find another show to enjoy
and watch it go away too.

LAst word was that SeaQuest's been renewed, but nothing more. They're going to
have to top (and explain how EVERYone survives :) ) the cliffhanger they gave
On the bright side, there's plenty of opportunity to catch what we missed this
