Quite the contrary actually! Most of the letters have been quite good=20
and respectful. A handful that I have read I would have preferred they=20
keep some of their opinions to themselves but for the most part I am=20
proud to be associated with people who like Jeremiah.

Anyway, I am working together with the Sean Astin site mentioned above=20
so they have copied the same information posted on my own site. I am=20
running a promotion where anyone who cc's me at the address above about=20
the campaign will be entered to win some great Jeremiah prizes. :)

Yes, this is still the case. We started this campaign because we have=20
been jerked around by Showtime in the past and want to make sure they=20
know what we want. I got a hold of all the contact information for the=20
people who are involved with making decisions about the future of=20
Jeremiah so why not do something rather than sit around and hope for the=20

Showtime never said, "mid-season finale" or "winter finale" or=20
"remaining season two episodes will air on [insert date]". Anything at=20
all to indicate what they were doing or that they inteneded to air the=20
remaining episodes at all. It appeared that they might be pulling an=20
"Odyssey 5" which was cancel the series and hold on to the unaired=20
episodes indefinitely.

What they -did- say was "season finale" and for a short time "series=20
finale". They have (probably as a result of our campaign) also posted on=20
their web site that new episodes (assuming they mean the remainder of=20
season two) are "coming in 2004."

We are making progress and the folks getting our emails are taking=20
notice but will it be enough? We still need to make that push to narrow=20
their 12-month window to January 2004. Also, why not ask for another=20
season or new episodes or how many episodes will air next year. The more=20
we bother them, the more likely they will know how important this show=20
is to them.

Send to both the direct addresses on my site and their online help
service at: http://www.sho.com/site/util/contact.do

I will update the campaign page later tonight but we are making a=20
difference! Please keep sending those emails and just write something a=20
little different if you are emailing the same people more than once.=20
Each unique email will count.

Sudden thought...is Movie Central in Canada airing the show straight through,
or stopping?  If the former, then they'll see the second half of the show prior
to the US.
