Subject:      Janette and Leonardo

"The lady smiled in regal calm: her instincts of conquest, of ferocity,
all the heredity of the species, the will to seduce and to ensnare, the
charm of deceit, the kindness that conceals a cruel purpose -- all this
appeared and disappeared by turns behind the laughing veil and buried
itself in the poem of her smile.  Good and wicked, cruel and
compassionate, graceful and feline she laughed."

(Now, doesn't that sound like a description of Janette?  I got it out of
a book of literary criticism, which was quoting a book on art history,
which was quoting Freud's view of a painting by da Vinci.  Goodness knows,
he was probably referring to the Mona Lisa -- though I don't see any
of this in that -- but I like the quote so much that I have decided that,
in the FK universe, Freud was indeed describing da Vinci's portrait of
Janette -- not the early one she left with Nick, but the work of the mature
master, which she commissioned, as she said she would do in PotM.

Since this thought pleased me so much, I thought you might like it, too.

In OtL, Nat turns thirty (golly, I love this ep!).
After the first season, the series went on hiatus for a year, yes?
So, on her birthday in second season, did she turn 31 or 32?  Is she 33
now?  Did a year pass between seasons for the characters, or just for
us?  Is it 1996 in FK, or 1995?

Please do not think that this is a flame, because it isn't.  But I really
would like to know what in the heck does "Embraced:The Kindred" have to do
with FK (or FK being canceled)?  Why all the sour grapes?   K: TE has
been in production since last spring, which is when I first heard of it,
way before FK was cancelled.
Now, I too am terribly dissapointed that FK was cancelled.  I,  like
many others, have been a fan since it was on CBS's Crimtime after Primetime.
I stinks that FOX didn't buy FK (but do you blame them with a vamp series
of their own to show) and it stinks that USA etc. screwed up so royally,
but again, why bash K:TE  when it is a completely different show,
based on a different supposition.  Now, if it was about a cop who happens
to be a vampire etc... I could see the bashing.
I am just so damned happy that *any* major network it taking a risk by
showing and producing a series that is about vampires, since in the past,
no nighttime series about vamps have done well with the ratings on a
major network.  I like K:TE.  I will offer any show that strides to be
different my support, as I continue to offer FK my support.

That's all folks...

Actually, that flashback doesn't have to be in the American colonies. It
could just as easily be England in the 17th century, probably during the
Puritan ascendancy of the Commonwealth. In fact, since the clothes and
attitudes in Fatal Mistake (where Nick thinks he killed Alexandra) appear
to be just before or at the beginning of the English Civil War, it's more
likely to be England. Nick says Matthew took him in when he was lost. My
guess is that Nick and LaCroix followed the Royalist forces, got mixed up
in one of the many serious routs that followed a Royal defeat, and got

Matthew, with his Puritan beliefs, clothes and voice fits nicely into
East Anglia, which is where the Pilgrims came from.

Subject:      Kindred MY Opinons! (spoilers)

        Everyone's talking about how Kindred's diffrent from FK. How they
can eat, have sex, only some can fly, you get the idea. But in my opinon, it
is too diffrent. Not from FK, but from all the vampire ledgends. Whoever
wrote Kindred, IMHO, took only parts of the myth that they liked, and for
what they didn't like, they just made-up new stuff. One of the good points
about FK, is it sticks close to the Ledgends. That really is all i think
about Kindred, and that is all i'm going to say. Is kindred even worth the
time to talk about?? Let's just forget that it is even around, and let's
talk about FK.

Actually Tara, I think some of the stuff definately had to be done there.

But like I said, I could only sit through five minutes of it. But the
opening shots of the GG were really fabulous. And even the arial shot at
the beginning looked like the South end of the City...I'm sure some of it
was really done in SF, but you're right the rest was all Century City.

Which brings me to my ObFK: After *trying* to watch those vamps in SF I
had a dream that *our* vamps were relocated in SF.

It was the best dream I've had in a long time. N&N on cable cars at
night. LC broadcasting from Koit Tower. Even Tracey and Vachon at Vista

The most interesting part though was part memory. When I was younger I
remember there was a truck driver who thought he'd be real swift and take
a short cut by going down the crooked part of Lombard (the crookedest
street in the world, for those of you who don't know), and the fool got
stuck. I remeber it was a MAJOR fiasco, and it took forever to get the
truck unstuck....

I dreamed that happened to Nick in the Caddy. ;-) In my dream it had to
be airlifted out.

10) Janette (or LaCroix) volunteers the Raven for an uplifting benefit

9) Nick actually follows one of Natalie's suggestions for more than half
an episode.

8) Nick and partner make an arrest that goes smoothly and doesn't involve
gunplay or amazing vampire abilities.

7) It is revealed that LaCroix is so hard on Nick because of repressed
memories of his tortured relationship with his own father.

6) Nat does a tricky dissection using a salad fork instead of a dessert

5) Janette dyes her hair blond.

4) Poker night for guys from the precinct at Nick's loft.

3) Nick realizes that if he truly wants to be mortal, he should stop
putting himself in situations that require him to use his vampire
abilities, so he quits the force and takes some type of desk job.

2) Nat meets a guy who's not a serial killer.

Subject:      FK Party Queary

OK, just a thought:

Kira mentioned something to me a while ago about not wanting to watch the
final ep alone (I suggested a BIG bottle of vodka, but that didn't appeal
to her...), so she wanted to know if anyone would be interested in coming
up to our place to watch it. I'll be home from school by then, and since
I haven't met any of the San Francisco contingent yet, I would like too.

Which is what I am asking, I guess. The Bay Area is a big place, and
Healdsburg (15 minutes north of Santa Rosa) is a ways out of the way for
most people, but anyone who's interested, my sister and I have our own
place (finally)with a nice view of the Russian River (assuming the dam
is up) and if there is any interest we'd like to do it.

And it would probably be a nice afternoon thing, because we get FK at
9:00pm (and then again at 11:00) on Saturday.

So let me know if you are interested.

Oh yeah, thought I'd add, Kira is *very* big into gourmet cooking...and
she *loves* getting the chance to cook for other people...she does great
vegetarian gourmet too....

I'm guessing at this one, but might it be Vancouver filmed?  I know
Sliders uses Vancouver for faux-Francisco.  There's also easy access to
all 22 Canadian actors in Western Canada, and could probably swing the
remaining 20 actors that are currently at work in the Toronto area.  ( I
mean no offense to Canadian TV.  I watch more shows made thare than I do
the American stuff, and HNiC is a lifeline after the Foxpuck)

Regardless, I want MY vampire/cop show to be filmed in Toronto. (pout)
Now that SciFi seems to have made a committment to air FK, it would seem
that there's a better shot at original tv movie type things.  I really
doubt the local syndies around here could swing showing FK made for tv
movies in prime time, and SciFi seems to be trying to find something to
air other than Twilight Zone reruns.

Did Matthew really find out that Nick was a vampire?  I thought Nick didn't
tell him and basically told Matthew that what he witnessed might have been
a dream.  Matthew, unable to resolve what he witness, thought he was going
insane and killed himself.

The use of the lists is up to Jaye, of course, but fkspoilr won't be
"former" until FK stops airing in syndication, right?  I mean, LK won't
be rerun until next fall, right?  I can't imagine we'll ever be done
discussing the final ep, whatever happens in it.
I am sure that we *will* discuss the episodes as they air, wherever they
air, whenever they air, world without end...

  I'm with you.  Yours is about the first thing that I have gotten all day.  I
sent a message to the listserver because I thought that I had been non mailed
(again!) but is said that I was set up to get mail.  Now I have gotten nothing
since about 11:00pm last night.  What is the deal? And here I thought my
computer was going on the blink again.

Subject:      Nanette Recruitment Options

        I heartily thank those who have asked for the Nanette FAQ, and hope
that some of those who have requested it consider joining my little fraction.
        Another option exists for those who don't want to completely defect
from their current faction/fraction (although there is nothing in the Nanette
bylaws that says you can't be cross-affiliated): you can be an FoN -- Friend
of the Nanettes. As the Part-Time FoN Cousin Diane says, as in "Girls just
want to have FoN." That will, in fact, be the motto of the FoNs.

        ObFK: Regarding those who have most intelligently answered my ques-
tion about Nick's being or not being a Carouche, I thank you. It was my un-
derstanding that a Carouche only had to drink the blood of animals, and did
not know that specifically implied the blood of "vermin." That's sort of an
ObFK, isn't it? :)

        Thanks, all.

Hello, all!

I've been toying with an idea for a while now, so I guess I might as well
spring it on you.  I'm the Program Director for this year's Midwest
Popular Culture and American Culture Associations' conference, which will
be held in Bowling Green, OH, November 15 & 16, 1996.  I would just LOVE
to see one or more panels (of 3 or 4 presentors each) devoted to FK.  The
papers could be on *anything* related to FK, including discussions of the
show itself, fandom, this list, the SOS campaign, whatever.  And since
we're talking about a culture studies conference here, all disciplines and
all approaches are welcome.  And yes, we do fiction readings, too.

Is anyone out there interested?  Please reply via private e-mail.  If
enough people express interest, I'll post a formal call for papers to the
list (you know, submission guidelines, deadline, registration fees, etc.).

Subject:      ***that*** show

Well, I *had* to delurk to comment on this fiasco.  It's really
hard to believe that FK got ignored to produce this.  I have to
admit that I'm not at all familiar with the game (I think it's a
game? a book?) the show is supposedly based on, but I can't imagine
that the original is this ... well ... vapid.  Not to mention that
they completely destroyed any semblance of vampire lore, except for
the drinking blood part. And of course I could go on about how the
name of a certain club in a certain show *rips off* the name of
another club in another show... based on the first episode,
Jannette's Raven was a much classier and more interesting place
than the Haven can ever hope of being.

I have to say though that I did like the scene where the Nosferatu
guy murdered the pathologist in the morgue, it was so much like
something *Uncle* would have done
<hiding from Cousins>
Of course NB would have carried it off with mch more grace and

I will problably watch one or two more episodes, just to give it
the benefit of the doubt, but I don't hold out much hope.

The ranting ends here, I now ...

Ya gotta love a list that includes people so creative that they write
poetry about list rules!

Just one question, Jamie -- why couldn't you come up with a rhyme for
<http://cac.psu.edu/~jap8/FK/FK.html> ?

I can think of several rhymes for "html", including things like "Blue
Meanies from Hell"!  But I will admit that URLs tend to mess up the meter
of a poem.... :^)
