    10- Only one season! No commitment!
    9- It's from ex-producers of the X-Files! Marketing
    opportunity!
    8- It was murdered by Football unjustly!
    Look like a hero by righting the wrong and include the
    payoff on the cliffhanger!
    7- Tons of people to interview for production
    documentaries! I have names and contact info!
    6- Large fanbase! Look at those Sci-Fi channel numbers!
    5- The first episode has R. Lee "Full Metal Jacket" Emery
    reprising his role as a drill sgt!
    4- Think of all the cool packaging possibilites!
    3- Most of the cast is unemployed! Lots of eager
    commentary people!
    2- No syndication issues! Easy on the legal noggin!
    And the #1 reason why you need to do Space: Above and Beyond:
    It has a lot of crossover with Buffy fans, thus giving us something to concentrate on other than the "no-Buffy DVDs-make-Buffy-fan-something-something" fever that we're all in
    Please, if you don't want to do it, find someone who will!
    Thanks for reading

    Next to B5, this is the TV series I am most certain to buy.

    Space: Above and Beyond was a great scifi series, too bad Fox killed it too early (like they did this year with the Lone Gunmen [​IMG] ).
    I would buy a SAAB boxset in a heartbeat...

    "And it's sci-fi, which we know sells..."
    Give me SAAB above X-Files any day. I'd rank it over Buffy (seasons 2+) as well.

    Jeff - the difference is that Buffy is a current show, but SAAB has been off the air for long enough to be thrown into the rosy nostalgia bin.

    You can sign me up too. The only problem I ever had with SAAB was that it ended prematurely.

    Please Please Please Fox, if you don't want to do it, give it to someone who will. I can understand that it has limited appeal, but this series was really wronged, and the cliffhanger will never be resolved. PLEASE consider licensing it out!
