Wonderful things are happening in the 'verse.

Universal HD is showing Firefly in HD, and as a Series!

Sci/Fi Channel is showing a Firefly Marathon on August 10th (a Friday) from 8am to 4pm.

And of course, there's the Shiny Serenity Collector's Edition coming out August 21st.


Some well-deserved "Thank Yous" are in order. Past experience has shown that cards and letters, while gratifying to the fandom, can be a nuisance to the PTB, and give a bad impression. E-mails are more effective, especially if you say what you want in the subject title. The odds that all the correspondence, or ANY, will be read is slight. It's volume that counts, with titles mentioning Serenity or Firefly. So please don't ask for Sequels and new original programming. Universal already knows what we want. It's much more polite on our part to simply Thank them for what they've been willing to do so far. Courtesy Will be noticed, as will high ratings for the shows and high sales numbers for the CE!

So, that being said, here are Contact addresses for all three venues:

Universal HD is a webpage, http://www.universalhd.com/Contact_Us/

Sci/Fi Channel's e-mail address is feedback@scifi.com

and Universal DVD's feedback address (From the serenitymovie.com site) is a web page, http://www.universalstudios.com/homepage/html/contact_us/contact_form.

As an example of a letter...
Subject: Firefly is still Flyin'. Thanks, Universal HD!

Dear Uni HD,

Thanks for deciding to broadcast Firefly in HD on your Network. Universal has been very good to the Browncoat Community this past year, and it is greatly appreciated.

Thanx,

Thanks for posting this, FM!

I was on the road to Kansas and didn't have time to do it, so... really appreciated!

Folks are sending thank yous to Uni HD, even if they don't get the Channel. This is a good thing; Let's Uni know we support them showing the BDSeries, even when we can't see it ourselves! We Need to let them know we support ANY effort on their part to get the Sereniverse out there where we and others can see it.

Bumping this to the top in light of Joss' statements in this interview


http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/news.php?id=6846

Please folks, let's make this DVD be a big seller!

And say a particular thank you to Universal.

And if you feel like being really expressive, take a picture of yourself holding your BDCE when you receive it and post it on www.bigdamnthankyou.com.
Let's let Uni know we're here. In numbers.

Waiting. Willing to buy their product!

Anony had a great idea about printing up the article where Joss says the fate of the 'Verse rests on the shoulders of the sales of the CE.

Here's the thread, I'm going to hang one up in my business, as well as sharing with my movie place, my libraries and the local colleges.

There's a showing of Firefly every Saturday night on the UniHD channel.

There's a marathon on the SciFi channel coming the 10th of this month!

So much FF goodness!

There are some banners to promote them both at these sites:

Or make your own, if you're of a mind to.

Spread the word, don't forget to email Uni and SciFi.

Thanks fellow Browncoats!
