P2P/Torrent Sites & WEBISODES that are succeeding!
Some of the strongest Jericho fans can be found not just in MySpace and on fan sites, but on broad media sites. I have specifically targeted P2P and torrent indexing sites of which I'm an active member. A strong statement comes not just from viewing, but from PURCHASING the series and using iTunes to purchase tracks specific to the show.
There are two current examples aside from Jericho that have kept the community alive and kicking for cult-favorite shows. One, as most here should be familiar with, is FIREFLY. Firefly is currently continuing with the recent release of exclusive graphic novels, as well. We were not able to get it back on air or finance webisodes YET, but we ARE working for webisodes that can be purchased episode by episode from an online site.
Many seem unaware that SCIFI has begun production and predicts the release of a series of full-length webisodes for the brilliant tv series, FARSCAPE. Farscape was cancelled FOUR years ago, and they are bringing it back through webisodes this summer (2008) with the possibility of bringing it back to television if the series is well-supported online. Yes, SERIOUSLY -- FARSCAPE is coming back!
And check out the series SANCTUARY by Amanda Tapping at Sanctuaryforall.com - a full webisode series that is available through the website. There is tremendous support for media in this fashion, and producers are adapting to today's internet-based audience.
Take a few moments to write or just print out any of the pre-written letters and send via snail-mail. Its just a postage stamp.
Remember, SCIFI is definitely paying attention, and they are willing to try NEW approaches to fit the fanbase.
