Something that worries me
« on: January 08, 2008, 03:40:00 PM »
Now that Nick GaS MIGHT be staying on Dish Network, do you think they will cancel the switch to Turbonick? If so it sucks for people like me who have Comcast.

It's everywhere. Google it up to get swamped, although I don't know where it first came from.

Wikipedia has/had it, and I'd like to think that Wikipedia is pretty on top of things in the Information World.

Remember, Wikipedia said on 10/31 they would get rid of GTP and FIO. But its Jan, and they are still here.

It ALSO said that on Christmas day, it would add "Where In The World Is Carman Sandiago?" (Was looking forward to that too!!) and "Masters of the Maze" and neither were added.

Yeah, that would've been SO SWEET if they would've added WITWICS and MOTM, but I'm guessing that the copyright holders of those shows (Along with the Family of the Late Lynn Thigpen) had something to say against the resurrection of those shows.

Nick never owned either of the Carmen Sandiego shows - they were both under public broadcasting / NPR licenses - or Masters of the Maze - the Family Channel aired that, which was bought by Fox; I believe Disney technically has the rights to it, now - so that was a really stupid rumor.

...exactly what would Lynne Thigpen's family have to do with anything?  It's not like the Chief was selling crack out the back dooror anything to disgrace the family.

For those wondering, I HAVE in fact realized the typos on the topic Let me amend it now. Something** and worries**

Anyways, just to add along with the "Wikipedia is bull" theory they said about a month ago the show was canceled because a kid got "Severely Injured while crossing the moat". :lol:

Just to say, you can edit topic titles by editing the initial post of the thread. I'll do it for you this time because I'm feeling nice.

I thought we actually had a real article that said Nick GaS would move to TurboNick, but I don't remember where I saw it... Maybe it doesn't actually exist?

First of all, I'm not saying that Nick ever owned either show. I'm saying that the CURRENT ACTUAL copyright holders hold those rights. Secondly, I'm not trying to start a bunch of rumors, I'm meerly stating THEORIES about why those shows never made it (If it was true that they ever were) to Nick GaS. Lastly, and I'm not entirely sure of this, but I believe that when a TV personality dies, the next of kin inherits ALL aspects of the deceased person's life, including the ability to grant (or dissallow) permission to use the deceased's image for broadcast. My theory about Thigpen's family is based on this fact or the fact that they don't wanna be reminded of the fact that she's dead now.

Yeah, because Carmen Sandiego is the ONLY indicator of someone being alive or not.

I had people staring at me in this Grecian Internet Cafe because of the headdesk.  Congratulations.
