I regard My So-Called Life's being put "on hiatus" as a tragedy--in the narrow
sense of a good work of art getting trashed.  This is an exceptional show with
complex, often moving characters.  Like all people--especially teenagers--they
are unfinished, becoming, in a state of going somewhere.  They are not
finished, pat characters acting out ideas or contrived situations.  Both my
daughter (age 10) and I (age 57) look forward to MSCL every week and are
saddened at its probable passing.  My local station here in Boston says
they've been getting a lot of positive calls about the show; they gave me the
following to contact:
 
ABC Productions
2020 Avenue of the Stars
Los Angeles, CA 90067
 
ABC Advisory Hotline
1-800-213-6222
 
Are there other numbers to call or addresses to write to?  I'd hate to see
this show go the same way as Civil Wars, Cop Rock, and other cancelled-out
gems.  Is it possible to get Nickelodeon or PBS or A&E to pick up the series?
Can we get a grass-roots movement going to save My So-Called Life?
