Don't miss Nathan, our Captain, in his first guest appearance on Lost this coming Wednesday, November 8th. It is an exciting cliffhanger episode before the show goes on hiatus, returning in February.

Afterwards, please be sure to write to ABC TV to thank them for casting Nathan in Lost and to encourage them to use him again in more episodes. Feel free to suggest him for other ABC shows as well.

or
ABC, Inc.
500 S. Buena Vista Street
Burbank, CA 91521-4551

Choose "Lost" as the show you are writing about. Your message will be directed to the correct people involved.



Supporting our Captain is supporting our cause!

*Sigh*

I see my post re: Nathan and Lost is getting about as much attention as Nathan's request that we all see Slither did.

I hope that folks will be more pro-active about this.

The fellow who produces/directs? Lost is J.J. Abrams, right? He's making the next Trek film.
Reviving an ailing franchise? Doesn't that sound like someone it'd be a good idea to write to?
Maybe someone could come along and post how to write him or his production company? We'd be sure to write them and say thank you as well.

This is a wonderful opportunity for Nathan folks, and I've read he's said he's thrilled! Let's support our beloved Cappy in his success.

Doesn't hurt that it does Firefly/Serenity some good too.

My daughter who is a big Lost fan has run across one myspace account about Kate ( lead female character on Lost) that lists Nathan as a man from her past and has a little blurb about him being famous because of Firefly/Serenity with some info there for Lost fans who read the site.
This is great exposure for us all!

Sent a thank you! I saw Slither twice in the theater and own the DVD, not only because of Nathan Fillion and James Gunn but because it is one of the funniest gross out movies I have ever seen! Don't worry, I am sure there will be plenty responses to this post.

We didn't have Slither at the theaters, but I bought the DVD, and then, when it turned out that it was a pirate, I bought another one. Just waiting for it to be delivered. It has to be imported from Australia. And I normally don't watch horror or gore, but I'll watch anything with Nathan in. If they include him in paint I'll watch that dry too!

I haven't seen any episodes of Lost (I don't have DSTv where it is shown, but I'll be sure to thank ABC for their actions.

I'm now looking for "Two guys and Girl" dvd's because of him.

I love my captain.

I hate to be a downer here, but to me thanking ABC for casting Nathan doesn't seem right.

Bear with me here, I'm going to back that up.

Nathan, as we all know, is a damn fine (often underrated) actor. ABC cast him in this role because Nathan deserved it, and most likely worked to get it. Rather than thanking them, shouldn't we be congradulating him? He's the one that earned the role, it's not as if ABC just gave it to him.

And I hope this isn't taken the wrong way, because I don't want it thought that I'm not holding out for a revival, but we have to remember that Nathan, Summer, Jewel, Adam, et al, are actors. This is what they do. Seeing them cast in other roles is simply us seeing them making a living doing what they do best. It doesn't mean that Firefly is going to get revived. I just don't want to see anyone getting their hopes up for the wrong reasons.

Send your letters if you must, but I personally think you're taking something away from Nathan's accomplishment by thanking ABC rather than congradulating him.

I have to agree with babywiththepower. Lost is luck to have Nathan. In fact, I hope Lost is THANKING HIM with a large pile of cashy money.

I hear what you are saying. But I see it as a way of showing ABC how popular Nathan is, and thereby helping in opening their eyes as to how very, very talented he is. I would like to change the "one of the most unrated" tag to "one of the most sought after". And that can be done if the Network sees what pulling power he has.

And I would *love* to congratulate him. How do I contact him?

Absolutely! Let's do!

I will send in my letter about Summer the same day I send in my letter about Nathan and mention her award winning role in Serenity. She is such a good young actress.

I understand what you're saying... I truly do.
But...
Thanking ABC is a way to let them know how many fans of Nathan's there are out here and that we're pleased he's on their show. And we'll likely watch it more because he is on there.
It's not meant to be disrespectful of Nathan's ability to get jobs. It's not a way to make Firefly/Serenity come back, it's a way to let folks know they'll have a lot of viewers in BC's if they'd like to.

I think congratulating Nathan is a wonderful idea. Anyone like to post a way to send him emails or a letter? I know when it was announced that he'd gotten the job, there were a lot of congratulatory posts on the OB, a board he does frequent ( just not frequently! LOL)
Perhaps he knows of our congratulations already. I don't suppose it would hurt to say it again?

Nathan is a terrific actor and Lost is lucky to have him. But thanks can influence show development.

Remember that fan reaction to James Marsters changed Joss' plan to kill Spike in the second season. And CW still hasn't figured out that the huge bump in Smallville ratings last season was a legion of Buffy fans tuning in for Brainiac as one of the few opportunities to see James on current TV.

I'm going to thank ABC for a chance to see Nathan again and what helps our BDH helps our cause. Great thread, thanks for the contact info.

And while you're at it, thank them for Day Break with Adam Baldwin too. It's the series that will show while Lost waits for new episodes.

Went to the ABC site and put in my two cents. I mentioned I would be watching my first episode of Lost tonight BECAUSE Nathan will be appearing.I told them to watch the ratings jump tonight, as the legions of NATHAN fans tune in to see our Captain.

Great idea Clementine and thank you DaliLaba!
Watching the ep of Lost right now, and it's great... as usual Nathan looks great and he's doing a great job acting.

Sorry, FollowMal, I should have posted earlier. I've never watched Lost before, but I have set my TIVO to pick it up tonight. I will be e-mailing ABC as soon as I finish watching my favorite BDH!

It's more than a little snippet, but not the whole ep all Nathan.
I do suppose that was more than I should hope for, as there are other people in the cast.
Ooo, you will like it though, I promise.
Now off to write ABC.

Thank you VerseExplorer... you always cheer me up.
And I appreciate it very much.

A lot of the folks on other boards have been posting that they're making a point of saying that they've never watched before and that Nathan being on the show is what drew them to it.
A good thing for them to know.

Thanks for the link, FollowMal! Sorry I didn't post earlier.
After that fabulous episode of Lost, I had to thank ABC for giving the role to Nathan. I told them they had done a wonderful job in casting him for the role and that I would tune into any show, be it drama or comedy, that included Fillion. ;) Woot!
