"CRITICS ARE CRITIQUING" ABC'S TREATMENT OF MEN IN TREES
But perhaps the most notable thing about the 2-year
old show, which stars Anne Heche as a New Yorker living in Alaska, is the blinding stupidity with which ABC has treated it.
No wonder its fans have grown tired of ABC's fondness for jerking their chains. Thanks to all these bizarre scheduling moves,
the ratings for the show have gone down, but network executives, not the show's cast or writers, are to blame for that.
It's been a while since I've aired this complaint, which still
generates a lot of mail and seems timely again in the wake of ABC leaving duds like Cashmere Mafia and October Road on the
air week after week to diminishing returns. All the while ABC is sitting on a cache of 11 Men in Trees episodes, which aren't
scheduled to begin airing until Feb. 27. I understand that ABC is trying to preserve some fresh product to get us through
the last months of what's left of this ragtag season, but how much worse could Men in Trees do than these losers? [ABC]
You would need a compass, GPS and a gypsy fortuneteller to know
how to find them [the show] if you care enough to watch."
But considering ABC's track record with MIT — 234 time slots
in two years! — I'm not holding my breath.
MEN IN TREES "HAS GARNERED PRAISE"
Michael Ausiello, TV Guide:
I don’t know about you guys, but there's something about all of these Trees duos coupling
up in real life that warms my cold heart. Now, if only ABC would show MIT half as much love as the actors have shown each
other, maybe we'd all get our happy ending. Speaking of which, don't forget to catch MIT in its new Wednesday at 10 pm/ET
time slot beginning Feb. 27. Mark your calendars. Using erasable ink.
Linda Stasi, NY Post:
is so good, so clean and understated that it's a pleasure to behold.
Barry Garron, Hollywood
A surprisingly refreshing romantic dramedy full of appealing characters.
"Elmo is a community of people that rally behind each other when the
chips are down," Heche says. And the town casts a similar spell on anyone who stops by. Marin's book editor, Jane (Seana
Kofoed), falls for a local named Sam (Ty Olsson), aka "Plow Guy." Annie (Emily Bergl), a wide-eyed fan of Marin, meets the
love of her life, the na´ve Patrick (Derek Richardson).
But unlike this season's SATC knockoffs, Men in Trees
distinguishes itself by removing Marin from fashionable Manhattan. One of the show's best assets is the Alaska setting, and
nature plays a significant role in many of the storylines. This show is about an intelligent, funny, good-hearted woman who's
left the rat race to find her true place in the world. I just wish more viewers would join her there.
MEN IN TREES ACTORS POST THANKS FOR TREES ON ABC'S MEN IN
TREES MESSAGE BOARD
Scott Elrod - CASH: I just want to say thank
you to everyone whom donated to the save the trees campaign, what an amazing idea you guys are AWESOME!!!
Seana Kofoed - JANE: Most importantly, we thank
you for making us proud. Don't get me wrong, crackers are great and peanuts are funny, but buying trees to provide food for
people in impoverished nations?! I mean seriously, that is the coolest, classiest thing ever. But know that we,
too, believe in Men In Trees. We love everything you're doing on the show's behalf, we feel insanely fortunate to have
such wonderful, dedicated fans, and you make us hugely proud.
Emily Bergl - ANNIE: I know that other cast
members have expressed the following sentiment much more eloquently than I ever could, but please accept my thanks as well
for your amazing support! We have all been so touched that our "little show that could" is being fueled by such grassroots
Jenny Bicks: If you are reading this, that means
our strike is over and I can finally blog again! It is a pleasure to be back in your midst, and let me just say that
it is not lost on any of our cast, crew or writers how fervent and loyal you guys are. This tree for life program
is just perfect and trust me, we have been adding a few trees into your forest.
Sarah Strange - THERESA: We are so proud that
our little show has inspired you to bold action. This warm, generous community that you've built. It shows how we're all the
same and have a responsibility to do good, to do right by our fellow Earthlings. It's heavy. I'm humbled. And grateful.
Lauren Tom - MAI: We just got wind of what
the fans on this board have been up to in support of our show--and on behalf of the entire cast and crew, I'd like to say
a Huge Thank You for all your efforts. Your creativity, generosity, time and hard work are very much appreciated, and beyond
touching to us.
Timothy Webber - JEROME: We, the cast, are constantly
amazed and humbled by the depth and breadth of your support. We also feel, "on set" how special this show is, and we all express
it often from the "stars' to the day-players, to the one day TADs. We thank you. (Page 3)
