A HUGE discussion on E2 merchandise!


Alicia <mowlaial@ucunix.san.uc.edu> forwarded a blurb from NBC Xtra
<xtra@nbcxtra.com> about a new replacement show called "3rd Rock From The Sun,"
which they say is: "featuring the hilarious travails of four aliens who have
come to earth to observe human behavior." (Mike fumes: Isn't that interesting,
this should be much better than a show about humans traveling to Earth2
observing aliens)

Nicole <nneilan@unlinfo.unl.edu> notes that there was a section praising NBC
Emmy-nominated programs and Earth2 was conspicuously absent. She wrote a polite
note to letters@nbcxtra.com pointing out the pettiness of this act and asks
others on the list to do the same

Michelle <mick@atlas.earthlink.net> reports, "KNBC has said that they were

on the 'Danziger- Devon 96', so she'd like to do something different, like 'Eden
Advance', 'Let the Journey Continue'.

Ethelyn <mestiza@u.washington.edu> noted there are three bumpersticker designs

Barbara <Barbara407@aol.com> went to the San Diego Comic Convention and noted
that MCA had a booth promoting sci-fi materials and had two E2 posters displayed
along with the books. Barbara left 300 E2EA flyers on the freebie table which
were gone by Sunday, MCA took the flyers and made more at their expense and kept
them on their giveaway table. (Mike: There's still a bunch of fan interest out
there guys!) Gina <GinaT1000@aol.com> adds that the E2 buttons were all gone by
the first day, the seaQuest buttons were still there by the last.

Gina <stara@primenet.com> reports that a representative from Galifrey 96 stated

Network Television"

Jack <jack.wallace@gtri.gatech.edu> posted the following from the August 8 issue
of Soap Opera Update (SOU), in the Inside Info section, there was a piece on
Sabato which said:
"Although unconfirmed as we went to press, SOU has learned that Antonio
Sabato Jr. (ex-Jagger, GH) has signed for at least six episodes of Melrose
Place, beginning with the season opener. Does this mean that the rumors
circulating that Sabato's NBC series Earth2 will return next season are
untrue? Not necessarily, say our sources. If Earth2 does return, it will
be as a mid-season replacement and would not affect Sabato's MP appearances."

hoped to help us to make an impossible journey possible."
