Characters Welcome

(UPDATE 2006: Unfortunately, the these links are all dead but the last one, but the last one was an odd montage that doesn’t illustrate what the others did. You can get into their [awful] web player at the USA site and view some of them by clicking “characters” in the upper right but I’ve got no way to link the specific ones that I had pointed them out here. The great ones with the little psychic girl from the 4400 is NOT on there but the fun ones with Johnny Smith and Monk are there.)

  • The Obsessive Compulsive Detective (#2)
  • The Reluctant Psychic
  • The Gifted Child
  • Everyone Else

    There are a few more, but I can’t find them. View these now, I can’t guarantee how long they’ll be out there…

      I really like these too.

      If I were psychic, I would totally do the “OMG! Never mind,” to people I don’t like, like the one of Johnny and the mailman.

      Saw the Characters Welcome adverts and was curious as to what was up with that. Thought the show might be looking for writers or something.

      What’s to like about this “character’s welcome” line, anyway? I am still trying to figure out what the heck it means and it annoys me more every time I hear it. Are you inviting writers to submit new characters for existing shows? Are you asking people who are considered “characters” to tune in? Are you requesting new show submissions? I am of higher than average intelligence, I write for a living and have a better than average understanding of the English language, but I DON’T GET IT. Am I missing something that everyone else understands, or are there others out there who also just DON’T GET IT? Perhaps that’s your point, eh? Confusion creates annoyance, creates controversy, creates ATTENTION. Is that what this is all about, or do you have some deeper, more profound purpose that went right over my head?
