| NBC: console me with a series DVD release!
I remember looking forward to 'Sleepwalkers' with much anticipation. At that time, X-Files was already high on its critical and public acclamation and success, and this new series looked to be a show in the same vein.

It premiered; I watched; I was impressed. It was a spooky mix of the 'Files and Outer Limits. The possibilities seemed endless as to how entering the dreams of a patient can help them conquer their problems.

Then NBC dutifully went and cancelled it after (correct me if I'm wrong) 5 episodes. Typical of NBC, though, a network that seems to delight in tanking shows I get hooked on. I didn't intend for this to be a rant, but Earth 2, Sleepwalkers, JAG (yes, it was originally on NBC) The Pretender, Profiler, BOOMTOWN!!! (I will NEVER forgive them for that one...)...all shows on NBC that I've loved but have been cancelled.

I will never forget a scene in what was perhaps the last episode aired...

Dr. Nathan (Greenwood) and Kate (Watts) had been arguing over something, and it was causing some tension between them. Nathan fell asleep later, and dreamed of a dead team member approaching him in a stop-action-photography-like sequence where he says: "Listen to Kate!" I know it sounds silly, but it was totally creepy and sent shivers down my spine.

We never find out any more from any of this series, and I really wish NBC had given it a chance. It could have been another X-Files.

But then, since the Boomtown fiasco, I've boycotted all NBC products.
