People Unite!....The Power of Blogging...NUTS!!!!

If you are a Jericho fan, you will know what I am talking about if not let me explain.  Jericho is a series that was cancelled before the second season started.

Jericho is a small town that goes under nuclear attack and the town's families living through the aftermath. 

 

The town and the characters are common names you will find in the bible

What is so amazing about the series, it keeps you on the edge of your seat and is so thought provoking and compelling.

I couldn't wait for the next episode to air.  It could easily happen to us!

Then one day, I read that the show was cancelled, the last episode ended in a way to make you think it was all over. 

I was teary-eyed (I mean it), I was shocked and I was angry

I decided to do my part to help get it back on the air.

It seems to me I was was not the only one who felt this way. 

You see it was the fans who brought back My beloved Jericho for it's second season. 

People around the world worked hard to get the 2nd season going. 

 

People, United!....The Power of blogging.....NUTS!

 

In the last episode of Jericho, one of my favorite characters, Jake,  was talking to a rival trying to overtake the town, the small town of Jericho was being threatened....

 

 

The season ended with the words "NUTS!"  We will preserve our town and face it..."It's going to be nuts!"  Meaning.....WAR!

Bloggers around the world had an idea, that was to send nuts to CBS. They definitely did something that opened up CBS's eyes.

 CBS realized it is what the people want, a second season of Jericho

They were willing to fight for it and do whatever it takes to get the series back on the air! 

Jericho is getting a second chance, the power of the people...truly amazing. 

We the people, have a voice, a very strong voice.  We can make a difference, one voice at a time. 

How fortunate are we that can communicate around the world! 

It only takes minutes and seconds to reach someone across the world!

 

Blogging is powerful, imagine the power of many voices, voices with similar interests, to me we can change the world.  I say make the content of your post compelling, use your voice to better your communities and the causes you believe in. 

Don't Sweat The Small Stuff, pick and choose your battles very carefully and let your blog help you along the way!

Yahoo for the blogging community!  I have a "bad hair day" once in awhile and have to voice. Not always the better choice to do that though....My husband loved that show but got bored...

Jane-Wow, that is truly amazing....I love it and feel honored!  The power of the people!  Thank you for bringing it to my attention.  I might have missed it!

Sally-Never sounds like rants just hoola dancing and tropical breezes!

Lysa-I am telling you if you think activerain is addictive so is Jericho.  I would get so upset when the episode ended knowing I had to wait another week.  I honestly cried when I heard it was cancelled.  I think finally TV land found something good and a little on the controversial side.  The problem to me it's very real and can happen to us.

Jo-Anne-thanks for commenting and stopping by.  Yes human beings can be extraordinary if they will go out of their way.  The fans of Jericho did just that.  I do believe we have voices that are so strong and powerful we should use them.  Imagine how much we can change one voice at a time!

GREAT ARTICLE!  I'm with you, no show has ever touched me like this and made me actively work to save it. As sad and angry I was over news of the cancellation, I felt empowered being able to fight for what I believed in via the internet.  It was the network of the many fan blogs that brought about the cohesive effort and gave us the power to be heard.

Kay-Thank you...I have to tell you that I had the same reaction.  It aint over until the fat lady sings right?  Instead of getting down about it.....I wanted to make a difference...even if I am one voice...I was joined by so many.  My husband is the one who really led the way for me.  Thank goodness Jericho has the fans that they do and I imagine the viewers have increased with all the voices out there.  thank you so much for commenting.

Sheepishly I say I watched every episode.  Being from Kansas I get as much joy out or ripping the program apart as I get from the program itself.  I like the show, I really do...

But...

  • there are no mountains in western Kansas
  • no western Kansas town looks that good
  • Denver isn't a mere two hour drive away from anywhere in Kansas

Now that I have that out of the way I'm proud we even got a mention that doesn't have to do with that stupid dog, the little girl and that gosh darned trash can of a man.

Chris-You are so funny but glad you are a fan!  Can't wait to see the second season.  I don't think I have ever felt so strongly about a TV show as I do Jericho.  Action, Romance, Comedy...I love it!  Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
