UPN is 10!


So in lieu of of an E Card, I just wanted to take a brief moment to reflect on some of the choices that the UPN Network has made over the last decade. Let's review, shall we?

HOMEBOYS IN OUTER SPACE -Ty and Morris spend their days hopping from one galaxy to another in their Space Hoopty, an intergalactic vehicle. It's guided by a sassy onboard computer named Loquatia and maintained by their trusty yet clueless mechanic, SCOTTY from Star Trek. Along the way, Ty and Morris pick up odd jobs, encounter hot space babes and struggle for cold hard cash.

SHASTA MCNASTY - Yeah I really Don't have that much to say about this besides BABY BUSEY

THE SECRET DIARY OF DESMOND PHIEFFER - It's a Sitcom about Abraham Lincoln's #1 Slave and his Horny Wife. Only 4 episodes aired till every political group in the country called for it's removal.

AMERICA'S GREATEST PET'S - Don't Know Much about this Show, other than it featured something called "Teacup Chihuahua!"

DIRESTA - This Show Guaranteed One Thing: 100% Diresta All the Time or Your Money Back.

I DARE YOU Apparently America Took the Dare and Watched...We Lost!

LOVE BOAT: THE NEXT WAVE - Finally! This Hour Long Extravangza included the 2 most important Ingredients to make it the Most Popular Show of All Time 1.) Robert Ulrich (as the Captain) and 2.) ALF as a Special Guest Star. What Happened? God Only Knows?

MARKER stars Richard Grieco as Richard DeMorra, a carpenter from New Jersey who comes to Honolulu to attend his father's funeral, with no intention of staying more than a couple of days. Soon after the funeral, Richard discovers that Joe gave out hundreds of poker chip-sized markers each engraved with the image of a rose. People who received the markers -- typically for an unrewarded, good deed -- were instructed to redeem them with Joe for help, favors and friendship.

THE WATCHER was an anthology program in a similar vein as the old Alfred Hitchcock Presents and the Tales from the Crypt. The program's only recurring character is "the Watcher," played by rap star Sir Mix-A-Lot.

And Of Course....

THE XFL

UPN You've come a long baby!

Kinda Makes You ThankFul we Have Shows like "Two 1/2 Men"

Sure if it took all that fine programming to bring me Veronica Mars and America's Next Top Model I'll take it. Yeah I will.

Well according to Mr. Johnson of North Carolina, "The Secret Diary of Desmond Pfeiffer is one of those shows that only sounds stupid if you've never seen it. This show is not the stupid, racist sitcom that everyone thought it was. It turned out to be smart and funny. I've got every episode of this show on tape. It's a shame that the general public didn't give this great show a chance"

Hmmm, if only anyone knew about it...
