"Forlorn" is the fourth episode of the television series Sleepwalkers. It was a science fiction series which began airing on NBC in late 1997. It told the story of a team of researchers who used technology to enter the dreams of psychiatric patients in order to diagnose their problems. Although nine episodes were produced, NBC canceled national airings of the series after just two episodes. Five episodes went on to be seen only on the West Coast and the show's final two episodes were never broadcast in the United States but did air elsewhere.

The show was created by Stephen Kronish and David S. Goyer, who would go on to produce the Blade films.

Releases

All nine episodes were released on VHS in Japan during the late 90's by Columbia TriStar Home Video, but were rental-only titles and could not be purchased directly.

Warner Vision in Germany released most of the episodes on DVD as both individual PAL Region 2 titles and as box sets. The German releases feature a Dolby Digital 5.1 track in German, but the English track is the same Dolby Surround that the show was originally broadcast in.

On October 20th, 2005 it was released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in Australia as a three-disc set[1] but it only features six of the episodes in random order. Each disc features two 45-minute episodes combined into one 90-minute film (Something Is Buried in Bethlehem - Night Terror, Forlorn - Counting Sheep, and Eye of The Beholder - A Matter of Fax).

At the present, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment does not currently have any plans of releasing the show on DVD in the United States because of its low ratings. Actor Abraham Benrubi has said that he would like to see it released.
