Hello World!

This will be my last appearance in this column for two weeks, as we are decamping and taking the family to England. Last time we mostly stayed in and around London, so this time we are going north, to Yorkshire and at least briefly to Scotland as well. On the agenda are Carlisle and Leeds, Rievaulx and Fountains Abbeys, Durham Cathedral and York Minster, Castle Howard and Dove Cottage, the Rollright Stones, Avebury and Stonehenge. Plus, because it wouldn't be a vacation if we didn't do something geeky, fannish or both, Phantom of the Opera onstage in London (I've seen it on Broadway but never there), ice skating in Nottingham (in honor of Torvill and Dean), and lots of tall ships, including visits to Greenwich and Portsmouth.

When we went to England two years ago, we had unbelievable weather; I know people tell stories about days of rain on end in London, but I remember the entire country as blue skies and flowers. We ended up having to buy tourist t-shirts at one of the castles because it was so much warmer than predicted. We had no problem finding internet connections last time, so I imagine I'll be able to keep up with the news if anything major breaks - if, for instance, Enterprise is resurrected - but I won't be answering mail in all likelihood and I'm way behind on comments as it is, for which I apologize.

Happy early spring!

Trek Two Years Ago

These were some of the major news items from March 2003:

  • 'Enterprise': It's A Guy Thing
    A US study of the male/female audience breakdown showed that women watched more primetime TV than men, but not Enterprise, with just 39% female viewership, in marked contrast to UPN rival the WB with 60% of its audience in the 18-49 demographic being women.

  • 'Enterprise' Overnights Freefall
    Pre-emotions and channel-hopping for coverage of the war in Iraq put Enterprise and UPN in last place in overnight ratings, as "Vanishing Point" averaged only a 2.4/4 rating, below its January numbers.

  • Berman Talks 'Enterprise' Mission Change
    Series co-creator Rick Berman elaborated on the promised shift in Enterprise's mission, saying that in "The Expanse", the cliffhanger would "put a new twist on the series as it enters its third year." He said that the change would alter the tone of the series, to be "more dramatically dealt with in the opener next season."
