Forever Knight NetRatings

Last posting to FORKNI-L on Fri, 14 Jun 1996       (Episode Guide)

Here is the final FK NetRatings update I'll be posting to the list. Summarized below are all three seasons worth of episodes.

I'm also signing off of the list, since I'm currently getting WAY too much e-mail (nearly a meg a day... gotta love these mailing lists). It's been a long, strange, bumpy ride, but I've certainly enjoyed the show.

Fun and Fond Memories...
Jeff
