Note: Before I begin, if you are a negative nancy, troll, or an internet-hard-a$$, leave that sh!t at the door. I KNOW this has been done before. I KNOW this may not work like it did in '06. This post is for those who actually want to see the show get at least one more season, or six. A movie may be stretching it, but i'm optimistic.
I have one word for you: NUTS. No comprehende? That's Ok. I'll elaborate.Back in 2006 the post-apocalyptic survival drama Jericho was facing cancellation after a short hiatus. The series finale for the first season saw two groups of survivors, each vying for each other's surrender. The protagonist, Jake, under pressure from the other side was contacted via radio to surrender. Jake would never surrender, never back down, and in the words of the historic figure General Anthony McAuliffe, he replied with one word as the series wrapped: NUTS.
CBS were soon inundated with 20 tonnes of peanuts from scorned fans. After seeing such great support and not being able to find a hungry enough elephant, Jericho was renewed for a second season. I propose we use the same tactics to remind NBC how much this show means to us, even if it's technically not officially cancelled yet. Except we give it some Community flavor, because quite frankly i'm allergic to nuts..
Here's the plan:
2.) Download theSixSeasonsAndAMovie.pdf file.
3.) Print the DVD cover, preferably in color but it doesn't matter.
4.) Slip the DVD cover into an old DVD case.
5.) Mail them to the following address:
Head of Programming
C/O NBC Universal Inc.
30 Rockefeller Plaza
New York, NY 10112
The DVD cover is meant to be, for all purposes, an elaborate joke. It is what I envision the series would look like if it were to run for six seasons until an eventual movie. And yes. I am aware that Yvette Nicole Brown has been replaced by Queen Latifah. It's a joke.
Now for the personal stuff. I'm sick of seeing great shows cancelled before their time. Arrested Development (YAY FOR RENEWAL BTW!), Freaks & Geeks, Veronica Mars, etc. This is something that I alone wanted to create, because quite frankly, i'm sick of sitting on my hands and moping over things beyond my control.I live in Australia and will be sending 40+ of these myself.
