If a B5 fan doesn't get cable or is on 
the internet they may not be aware that
the show has not been canceled.  The
last season four program certainly 
looked like a series ending program. 
The only clue I would have found is the
book "In The Beginning" which states 
that it is now a TNT series.  I have
told a couple of people about the switch
and one got cable and the other told
his mother who is a B5 fan.  I would
guess, however, that many B5 fans think
it is over.  Is TNT doing anything to
attact the attention of B5 fans who are
not on cable or the internet?

I know, I hear from a lot of folks who *are* on the net and who think the show
has been canceled.  All TNT can do is what they're doing, a massive print and
TV ad campaign to let folks know.  There's a ten million dollar value campaign
behind the launch on TNT, print ads, bus ads, there will be commercials on ST
and X-Files, a four-page spread in Entertainment Weekly in the next week or so,
and I've been giving a busload of press interviews lately: TV Guide, USA Today,
Chicago Tribune, others, and I'll be shlepped out to NY sometime in January to
do more press stuff.  They're dedicated to really selling this thing.
