Laurie is utterly correct, and please allow me to second her comments
 whole-heartedly.  This is an incrediably civilized and welcoming and SAFE list.  In the
 words of Terry from 'Wayne's World,' "I love you, man!!" LOL

I just want to thank Jean Prior, McLisa and Don, and all the long time FORKNI-L
 list family.  This has always, with brief exceptions, been the most civilized,
 considerate, friendly list I've ever been on.  I have never been on any other
 list where courtesy and tolerance towards other views have been as well upheld
 as they are by the list owners and members here.

I'm sure I speak for Don and Jean when I say thank you for the compliments on
 our listowning.  Take a bow yourselves, Forkni-lers -- you're respectful and
 tolerant and kind to each other, and that's why the list is like that.

McLisa, smiling at all of you even if you can't see me

    Kyle Schmidt has grown on me as a vampire and as an actor.  As far as
the Tony character, I guess that even Lifetime thought we couldn't handle
it, or that perhaps it would be too complicated for us to deal with.  Since
we're women.  Or perhaps they didn't want to frighten away the guys from the
series?  I'd no idea Christina Cox was Joan.  How obtuse am I?

    Your brothers sound dreadfully close-minded.  So how do they view Spike
TV?  and ESPN?  As MCP TV, by chance?  (male chauvinist pig television)
Knives cut both ways, you know.  I find it odd that a network that is
promoted as a women's network should be viewed as a Femi-Nazi network.  They
must be real pieces of work, your brothers.  I once received a letter from
Jerry Falwell calling me a Femi Nazi.  I didn't like it very much.  I won't
say anything further here, although I did write a great deal more which I
deleted.

   I enjoyed the most recent episode of Moonlight.  I've been hoping that
the new channel Chiller  TV might bring Forever Knight back into the public
eye once again.  They are airing Night Gallery and the old version of the
Alfred Hitchcock Presents and Werewolf and American Gothic and Good vs Evil
and and Brimstone...and many other classics.  I have Direct TV and have been
enjoying this channel very much for all the old friends I've been
revisiting.

  Perhaps it's just a forlorn hope, but wouldn't it be great to see it once
again every day and welcome new fans?  I've no idea if there is a chance in
hell, just a hope it might show up again...

 I read when the series started that the rights to the Tony character was being
 reserved for a separate series/production. I don't recall if that was a separate
 Lifetime series or another production company. I thought the Lola character
 of the most recent Moonlight episode made a far more interesting, LaCroix-ish
 "old vamp" than Josef. If the sereis lasts, I hope she returns.

  That's true, Tanya Huff has stated that there was a possibility that Tony
 might get his own series, but IIRC, that hasn't happened ... yet.

Josef is IMO such a bland and completely superfluous character that I wouldn't
 miss him if he never showed up again. But then I can't imagine ever having
 another master vampire that could match Nigel Bennett's LaCroix. I agree that Lola
 was a much better "older vamp" but I think it's unlikely she will return given
 the episode's ending.  But then again, LaCroix returned to FK after being run
 through with a flaming stake, so I suppose anything is possible. It would have
 been great to see a character like her going head to head with LaCroix in FK.

  I feel the same way. And GWD as a guest star would be interesting ... had
 never thought of that!


>I'd no idea Christina Cox was Joan. How obtuse am I?



  And a very memorable role it was. She also showed up as a cop in a flashback
 in another ep ...  I recall a scene with Schanke and the Caddy. Christina Cox
 was the cop who was writing a ticket because the Caddy was illegally parked. I
 recall Schanke digging through the contents of Nick's dash looking for the
 registration and discovering an old driver's license ... Close Call maybe?.   In any
 case, I don't think I would recognize Christina in that one if I didn't know
 it was her.

    Remember that "For I have Sinned" is from 1992.  A lot
    of us change in 15 years.  I had to get the DVD out and look.
    You can see that it is her if you know to look.  The sound
    of her voice is the same, but her French accent is very
    different.

        Could he do it as Nick?  Vampires don't age, but actors do.
        And, as good looking as he still is, GWD isn't 35 anymore.

          Yes, that was "Close Call".
