For those who may have been curious as to what I’ve been doing for the past two weeks that has resulted in a rather alarming lack of blog postings, I’ve been busy with a variety of school-related activities surrounding the faculty strike currently affecting my campus. As part of this, our students’ union released a set of guiding principles which the administration and faculty will ideally follow within this setting.
Perhaps proving I’m forever incapable of forgetting about Jericho, my mind immediately turned to what I would write for today, Jericho Digg Day. Terocious at Jericho Junction was kind enough to organize this, and I wanted to provide something with real value for Jericho fans to think about. As a result, I have decided to craft a series of guiding principles that CBS and fans should follow when Jericho finally returns to television at some point in the next number of months. I believe that, if these guidelines are followed, the show has a great chance of success, and that the fans have the potential to get the 3rd season they deserve.
Guiding Principles for the Return of “Jericho”
Jericho Digg Day – October 28th, 2007
Before the Date is Announced:
- CBS should be in close contact with fan communities in order to recapture the grassroots elements of the initial campaign to save Jericho.
- The DVD set should be advertised through traditional and new media in a way that reflects its importance to the campaign.
- Fans should attempt to overcome the rifts growing between certain populations in order to present a united front.
- CBS should be responsible for keeping the series in the public eye, not just the fans; however, fans should continue to digg, read and comment on stories to keep their momentum alive.
