+1... but i think the sci-fi channel has more in their minds than just
cool shows... i don't think you'll get as many viewers on some of
those as you will for Crossing Over, or other weirdness...

although i personally know a lot more people who'd watch neon
genesis than john edward, the numbers in their market research
might not bear that out...

and that should show you the level of anime the average US
audience is prepared to consume...

i just wanna see Robotech and Star Blazers back on the air, then
we can talk about Bubblegum Crisis/Crash and Area 88...
