But all is not well in Trinity.
Sadly, our beloved town is now just a memory.
Why? Because of the programming department at CBS. After moving the
episodes they chose to show over four different nights, with two lengthy
hiatuses, and neglecting to advertise the show sufficiently on its own
network or in publications such as TV Guide, CBS put American Gothic on
"indefinite hiatus." However, the Trinity Chamber of Commerce didn't let
our town disappear without a fight. The show's fans were among the first
to buy an ad in trade publications, and there were copious letter-writing
campaigns and petitions. It didn't bring the show back, but AG will
live on through their work.
Virtual Trinity is dedicated to the memory of "Buck's Babe," a medical student
and AG fan who died in a car accident at the age of 24. We'll miss you, Libby.
