The tmnt 2012 tv series to lessen the romance

The reason why, I wrote this, is not to complain like how you would normally see fans upset because they like a character. It is because it is affecting them as well and I'm asking, " Why can't there be a way to please everybody?" I don't understand how if something in a TV show or book ( like tmnt ) is offensive to some people or if the company gets sued, that's when you might see changes, but if fans complain because something in the show bothers them, they're ignored. That's sad, especially when its for the whole audience. I know that it maybe hard to convince the companies why some things should or should not happen, but you should at least try. Even if nothing happens, keep trying because it hasn't happened yet. If you stop, you won't know if it will happen. Besides, if you keep asking, it may show that its worth the time, but if you give up, others might think you lost interest and say, " Why bother listening when they've stopped?" If its worth it, we have to show it! If enough of us REALLY want this, we have to say something. Do something. We have to repeat what it is we're talking about, because it's not fair that some people can enjoy it and others can't. Some fans actually crush on some of the characters themselves, so when love interests come along, that takes away the freedom, because the guy/ girl the fans like is now interested in someone and that can hurt some fans. When these fans complain, I don't think it should be ignored, because everybody's feelings should have the time to be listened to. You don't know all the reasons why they're protesting. It could be hurting, the characters changed too fast or too much. Its all the show is about now. Its used so often. They miss how it was and its not as entertaining. Sometimes TV characters are relatable and sometimes they mean a lot to people. That might be why some may even be thinking of not watching the show anymore and that makes me sad, because its a great show and if people don't like it as much, it doesn't look good for it. I know that not everybody likes it for the same reasons, but why can't there be a way to give everyone what makes them happy? If there was a way, no one would need to complain and everybody would have something to call their own. Sure you can have fan fiction where you're the love, but after its over, it still might not be enough when you go back to the series and are reminded of it again. Romance is okay for some stories, but aren't you tired of it being in nearly everything? There are a lot of TV shows, reboots, stories that have romance, why can't there be something new, or why aren't other kinds of love and other development explored as much? Why don't we ever get to see what it would be like if main characters stayed single or were not interested? It's like every character is the same: Comes into the show, meets someone, likes/loves him/her. Don't you want to see something else? Like more development of characters individually, watching them grow stronger, better and thinking about everyone else they care about like family, instead of pairing development, where they're focusing on a crush, how great they are, if they will like them back, impressing them, then if they do, how they're together and if you hear of one, the other comes to mind as well. Sure they can be strong together, but it seems like they're not that much of individuals like before and all they do is focus on each other. Not everyone or every character is the same or needs a partner. People can be happy by themselves too and the movies and series can still be as entertaining. Why can't the turtles each have a best friend who's a girl? I mean, for the people who like the couples, they could still be happy, because best friends are close. It looks more like the kind of relationship that's best known in the show is the dating kind. Yeah, they're teenagers and yes the family relationship is also there, but the romance seems to get more attention. Why can't we as the viewers, see all sorts of relationships in the show? See what it'd be like if characters had more to their personalities, instead of every time or most times seen in the show, having romantic moments? Besides, once you hear the word "relationship", some people might assume it means dating, but there's other kinds, its not for only one kind. It's okay when some things don't change, but when a story is told differently, don't you feel more excited, curious and it sparks your interest faster when it takes a new turn? There has to be more to the show, something that both people who like romance and don't like it, can enjoy. Maybe if there was a way to make it a little more personal, or had more variety, so that everybody can like it equally. Some fans probably can't say anything except by mail if they don't have computers, but there has to be some who do and can do something. Talk to your friends and family about it. Make videos, Facebook, for examples. The show is for all of us to watch and enjoy, right? So why should this be ignored? Why not give this some time to think about? If we don't enjoy it, we should speak, or it might not change. It is not just a TV show to some people. Besides the romance looks rushed, uncessary and for money. We know it takes money to make the show, but if people enjoy it, wouldn't more money come? Its entertainment, it should be fun. Who knows, speaking out could be helpful to the people making the show, the show itself and to us, especially those of us who want to say how they feel but can't or are scared to. Do it for them, for you, for everyone, because if some people can do the examples mentioned earlier and get it in the TV shows, they had to have good reasons, so why can't this be one of the good reasons too? Why can't we ask too? We care about the show too, we want it to be more exciting to watch too. We actually all have the same thing in common, and that's, we're all asking for what we want to be put in the show, because it would make us happy. True it wouldn't be fair if we got what we wanted and those who like romance were left out. That is why, there should be a way to give everybody what it is they're asking. Please, tmnt fans reading this, if you want something to change in the 2012 show, whether its the romance, or development of characters, or because its boring, say something. We need you to help make a change to get the show as fun as it was before.

Petition to DHX Media, Netflix, The Program Exchange, King Features Syndicate, General Mills

Revived Dennis the Menace (1986 Animated Series) on Netflix with Brand New Episodes.

Over 30th years ago, the animated series of Dennis the Menace was produced by DIC Entertainment (now owned by DHX Media) was aired on television from 1986 to 1988. It's last only two seasons with 78 episodes (234 segments) and continued running in the 90's and 2000's as well. Based on the popular classic comic strip by Hank Ketcham about Dennis Mitchell, a young blond-haired boy with cowlick who gets into numerous scrapes and adventures along his dog Ruff and his friends Joey, Margaret, Gina, Tommy, PeeBee and Jay. Especially he's getting into mischief that's which end up tormenting his hapless and grouchy next-neighbor, Mr. Wilson. Dennis get involved in all kinds of wild and crazy adventures, but always manages to  save the day. This popular animated is full with laugh, fun and adventure that catch it everyone's hearts for all ages. But what if American's favorite troublemaker is back for more excitement and more trouble? We fans very like to see this wonderful cartoon returns with brand new episodes for more fun, more adventures and more mischievous. It's not a reboot or remake, it's "REVIVAL"! With same energy, adventurous and humor of Hank Ketcham's spirit, but more advanced animation quality and richer colors in normal 2D traditional hand-drawn like it was before instead crummy CGI or choppy Adobe flash. The opening credits would be re-recorded version of original 80's theme and the closing credits will be new and different segment. Hopefully featuring the new voice casts for Dennis and his gang, plus the returning of the legendary voice actor (Maurice LaMarche from Pinky & the Brain and Futurama) as the voice of Henry Mitchell, Ruff and George Wilson ever since Phil Hartman die in 1998. And (Madeline: Stevie Vallance) as the voice of Martha Wilson and Alice Mitchell. If anybody are biggest Dennis the Menace fans out there, please sign this petition and we'll be extremely grateful if DHX Media, King Features, General Mills and The Program Exchange would bring back Dennis the Menace as the revival series on Netflix and if they could co-production with other animation studios from Japan and: or South Korea to do overseas animated this show. Everybody will enjoy Dennis and the rest lovable characters once again in new episodes and Direct-to-Video movie series. There is no other brats but with a kindhearted like Dennis the Menace.

Bring Back Sliders

It's been years since the finale of the scifi series Sliders. But a new beginning could close the book to a job unfinished. Those first two seasons had the perfect blend of adventure, fiction and comedy. It was the 90s, it was a time where things were indeed more simple and less complicated. There’s no question that it was the golden era for science fiction on television. Any and every 90s show seems to be getting the nod for a reboot. Whether it be Full House, or the X-Files there’s something missing and it’s Sliders. There’s one supreme advantage that Sliders has over these other shows. It’s the literal unlimited possibilities writers could create for parallel worlds. And I’m afraid that your studio, Universal Studios, fails to see this as an advantage. Jerry O’Connell once said that’s why he loves Sliders so much because “its not like other televisions shows where you’re stuck in a emergency room every episode or you’re stuck in police precinct. It’s a different show every week.” The possibilities are indeed endless with different dimensions. The man to get the job done for a miniseries would be Sliders co-creator Tracy Tormé who has won the hearts and minds of a cult scifi generation. When Slidecage interviewed Jerry O’Connell and talked about a possible reprise he mentioned that Tormé is the boss. And rightly so. He would be the one who has seen what has worked and what hasn’t in his time working on Sliders. His experience with writing and negotiating in a day and age where the parallel universe concept is becoming more widely known is key to success. If you’re truly connected to a story and characters of a science fiction medium you want to know the whole story, not a new one. What would “Back to the Future” be without Michael J. Fox? Or “Indiana Jones” without Harrison Ford? There are many fans here and abroad waiting, hoping, believing that a return will happen. That’s not to say a series reinvention is out of the question, but capping off a cliffhanger story is more important. Obviously it wouldn’t be an easy feat to explain a resolution to the chaos that ensued over two and a half seasons. Trying to tell a new story to new viewers and old diehard fans would require a delicate and precise balancing act.  A theatrical movie would be out of the question. The average movie length is two hours which would likely not give enough time to wrap up the past and give us more action beyond that. A continuation with a new season six could end up in disaster with cast changes or even cancellation without a resolution yet again. It would seem the only viable option is a miniseries that could not only give enough screen time but allow a set finale that would leave everyone happy. Finally at that point, a reinvention or next generation would seem appropriate. Sliders went through a lot in five seasons. Actors left the show, plots drastically changed at times, and the series ended on a cliffhanger. Nevertheless Sliders still had very high ratings and kept continuity in it’s fifth and final season. Many would call the Sliders story a train wreck that could never be put back together. If Universal Studios leaves it a mess, its essentially a cheap shot to it’s fans. Let me explain. Co-Creator Tracy Tormé saw the need for viewers to be “in the know” about cliffhangers from one season to the next. The season one finale told the story about Quinn getting shot and the FOX Network felt no explantation was needed to show Quinn on his feet in the season two premiere episode. Essentially as Tormé puts it FOX wanted to “alienate the audience” and tell them you don’t matter, nor does the story. We do matter and we’re here to tell you that. Most of us would be delighted to see the original fantastic four return. Jerry O’Connell would definitely be interested with Tormé at the helm and I can’t help but feel Cleavant Derricks would be on board, especially after outlasting every other original cast member through its five year run. Obviously John Rhys-Davies and Sabrina Lloyd may be in question. Rhys-Davies had a difficult departure from the series to say the least, and Lloyd is overseas. Deep down Quinn, Rembrandt, Wade and the Professor are the bread and butter. And everyone knows it. Sliders doesn’t need to grow mature. Growing up in the 90s, Sliders was a relatively moral television series. Whether it be the violence of “The Walking Dead” or the sexual obsession in “Game of Thrones”, television shows today are pushing violent and sexual boundaries to the extreme. Sliders is something that was fun, comedic and adventurous in a wholesome way. If you have a good story there’s really no need for sexualizing and creating graphic violent scenes. Networks have really taken what was sparsely seen in the 90s and used it exponentially today for ratings. It’d be great to see the kids growing up today to experience such a show as we did in the 90s. Adventurous. Fun. Clean. Yet smart. Time is of essence. The prolific actor John Rhys-Davies is getting up in age along with the Tony Award winner Cleavant Derricks. Why wouldn’t you take the opportunity to bring back a show with John Rhys-Davies? The man has been a staple in blockbuster movie franchises such as “Indiana Jones”, “Lord of the Rings” and even “007”. It would only take time to tie up a loose end that co-creator Tracy Tormé was never able to finish and thats the wrong Arturo who slid with the Sliders after the episode “Post Traumatic Slide Syndrome”.  The existence of countless Sliders fan websites, fan fiction, it’s success on Netflix and presence in pop culture is still strong. Reviving the show to it’s roots with the original actors would be a television success with Tracy Tormé. It only takes a bit of research to discover how embedded Sliders is in the hearts and minds of TV fanatics. We haven’t forgotten. Take a look. ‘Haven’t you seen? Heard? Haven’t you looked around? Hasn’t any of this affected you at all? The universe has no conscience. So we have to.’ Don’t blow it. Thomas Birchfield www.slidecage.com, info@slidecage.com
