Bring the Old Republic era of Star Wars to Netflix
It's no surprise to anyone that the Star Wars franchise has experienced a massive resurgence lately, with The Force Awakens released last year and this year with the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. However, it's about time that the stories from over 3,000 years before the Battle of Yavin be told to both new and old fans of the franchise. The Knights of the Republic series of games as well as the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic serve as the main vehicles to tell stories of characters such as Darth Revan, Darth Malak, Bastila Shan, Darth Traya, Meetra Surik, Darth Malgus, Satele Shan, and the list goes on. The popularity of this era in Star Wars history is felt throughout the fanbase, and I feel it would do a massive disservice to us if these stories weren't told. Why Netflix was chosen was because of the wealth of great content they have produced over the years, such as Narcos, House of Cards, and especially everything that Marvel has done and is still currently working on. Not only that, but Netflix can serve as a platform to tell these stories as they were meant to be portrayed: dark, foreboding, and a touch on the mature side. This can also give us fans our healthy dose of Star Wars while we're waiting on the new movies or the new season of Star Wars Rebels. The Old Republic era is a pivotal point in the Star Wars timeline because that's where everything changed, from the Jedi Civil War and the fall of Revan, the First Jedi Purge, and an omnipresent darkness that not only watched the chaos from afar but also kick-started the downfall. Our fanbase would love to see this on Netflix, and I feel that you would enjoy creating and adapting these stories as much as we would enjoy watching them.

Create a Percy Jackson TV series called Percy Jackson and The Olympians
We the people of the Percy Jackson fandom, believe that in order to form a more perfect world a non-animated tv series based on the original series Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan be created. The show will be casted in such a way that the characters match the descriptions in the books, which include all of the details of each specific character (Ex: Luke's scar and Annabeth's hair). The show will have each season based on a different book and be 10-13 episodes long. Each episode will be compsr of one or two chapters in the book each season is based off of. It will be available to watch worldwide. The show will be available to viewers on Netflix, Hulu, and/or Amazon to increase production value. It will be straight from the book with some occasional small additional twists that will be added into the storyline to help keep viewers hooked. We do ordain and establish this petition for the Percy Jackson fandom.

Save Stargate Universe
We the audience humbly ask you to consider our case that it would profit both Netflix and MGM Studios to cooperate in reviving the television series Stargate Universe (SGU). Information has emerged subsequent to SGU's cancellation which demonstrates its viewers to be far more numerous than heretofore believed, and ideally suited to become Netflix customers. We hereby petition Netflix to evaluate SGU in this light. As epic space science fiction, SGU has highly focused appeal to a desirable and exceptionally avantgarde demographic: Geeks, technophiles, early adopters--viewers in the coveted 18-49 age range who embrace tomorrow's technology today, and who prefer to watch series via the Internet through gaming consoles, laptops, PCs, smart phones, tablets, iPods, smart TVs, etc. Thus, though the Nielsen ratings measure conventional audiences with laudable accuracy, SGU's uniquely unconventional viewers went largely uncounted, watching in ways and time frames beyond The Nielsen Company's purview. This gave SGU the illusory appearance of unpopularity and skewed its reported demographics. There is considerable evidence that SGU's audience is large, enthusiastic, and still clamoring for the show's return: When Syfy announced SGU's cancellation, the resulting social media firestorm prompted an article by Forbes, and an unprecedented "open letter" from Syfy to fans. The "Save Stargate Universe" Facebook page dwarfs all other "save a series" pages, with over 79,000 followers, and has inspired two more Forbes articles. On July 6, 2012, SGU won five out of the six Constellation Awards that a TV series can possibly win, even defeating the hugely successful Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead in the "Best Series"category by more than five to one. The voting public decides the Constellation Awards. According to Alexa statistics, the Stargate franchise, led by SGU, brings more search traffic to mgm.com than all of MGM's other movies and shows combined. Smart-DVR manufacturer TiVo published an article about the extraordinary popularity of SGU re-runs among its tech-savvy customers. Over 11 million Netflix customer reviews rate the Stargate franchise an average of 4 stars out of 5; over a million of these reviews are for SGU, and rank it the best part of the entire franchise. As you know, each Netflix customer may enter only one rating per series or movie. The fan fiction work "Stargate Universe: The Virtual Third Season" has surpassed 250,000 downloads. Please let SGU be remembered as a pioneer of the Internet television revolution, led by the visionaries at Netflix. All Stargate and Sci-fi Fans should support this petition savesgu.net Special thanks to Blake Linton , Laurence Moroney, Chris Zellmer, Suzanne Phillips, Kelley Hirst, Evgeniya Lazarova, James Hannah, Torben Krogh Madsen and TheDudeDean aka Dean Bairaktaris

AIR "TRIAL BY FIRE" FILM ON NETFLIX AND/OR PBS!!!!!!
Did you know that up to 7% of all children and up to 8%-10% of all adults who sustain a traumatic injury to a limb or have a simple blood draw will be diagnosed with CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome), a chronic, painful, insidious neurological disease with no cure? Did you know that the pain CRPS patients can suffer is ranked worse than cancer, childbirth and amputation? Did you know that CRPS has the horrific nickname as the "suicide disease?" Those who live with CRPS every day do...including the mom of Charles Mattocks, the sister of the late Bob Marley. So imagine what happens when her son, Charles Mattocks, a celebrity chef and an advocate to raise awareness on Type II diabetes, with the help of some amazing people put together a documentary called "Trial by Fire" a film based on CRPS/RSD. Imagine what happens when others join the "TBF movement" and begin promoting this "little" film. Imagine what happens when this documentary gets submitted to film festivals and now, after just appearing at its first festival, it wins two awards. This "TBF movement" grows. And it grows. And it grows.We have countless people who have CRPS literally begging us to see "Trial by Fire." Their families and friends are begging to see it. Those who have joined the "TBF movement" are begging to see it. But they are also begging for better treatment... earlier diagnosis, compassionate pain management doctors, knowledgable emergency personnel, effective medications, wider medical coverage for infusions, and A CURE!!!! We can't let them down, can we? Dare we? So how can you help? We ask you to please SIGN THIS PETITION asking Netflix and/or PBS to AIR "Trial by Fire." Let's educate the WORLD that this disease exists! Let people see that indeed this disease does not discriminate. Rich/poor, young/old, male/female... YOU CAN GET CRPS! We ask you to sign, SHARE on Facebook, share on Twitter, email to your friends and family. We ask that you JOIN our movement on Facebook and Twitter. Movements matter. We matter. Make this happen. Thank you! "Trial by Fire" Team www.trialbyfiremovie.com email@example.com
Petition to CBS
Make Star Trek: Discovery available on Netflix for US and Canada!
Star Trek: Discovery, the first Star Trek series in over a decade, will not be available for most Americans and Canadians to watch (As things are now). The plan CBS has is to make people sign up for their CBS All Access online service, forcing potential watchers to pay $6 a month, or $72 a year to watch Star Trek: Discovery. This is an extremely poor choice for several reasons. Here are two: 1. Star Trek fans who can't afford to pay $72 a year for Discovery won't be able to watch the new show. 2. If it is available only on All Access, Star Trek Discovery will have far fewer watchers. Only people who are already fans of Star Trek will be willing to cough up $6 a month to watch Discovery. The number of people who will watch Discovery will not increase, in fact some may sign up for a month of All Access, then decide that $6 isn't worth it. 3. There are far more people who watch Netflix than CBS All Access. All Access missed the boat with online streaming. With almost the same price as Netflix and a fraction of the selection, CBS All Access is basically doomed to fail. TL;DR Making Star Trek: Discovery available in the US and Canada only on CBS All Access is a very poor choice. Nobody will watch it, but putting it on Netflix will gain viewers and make the show available to Trek fans who can't pay for All Access. Thanks for supporting this petition! Email me (Paul) any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org . Emails to this address will be forwarded to my private email, so expect a speedy response.

Netflix 4k on Pascal GPUs as promised initially.
"Pascal GPUs meet the highest standards for PlayReady 3.0 (SL3000) and support HEVC decode in hardware, bringing the capability to watch 4K premium video on the PC for the first time. In coming months, consumers will be able to stream 4K Netflix content and 4K content from other premium content providers on Pascal-enabled PCs." This is what was promised to us with the release of the pascal line of GPUs. But they didn't fulfill, and neflix 4k is only supported on Intel's Kaby Lake CPU line. Now the Nvidia 1xxx series has proven to decode the netflix standard but netflix still refuse to support it on Nvidia GPUs. Help me change their minds.

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, email@example.com

Netflix: Bring The X Files back to Netflix US
The X Files ran for 9 seasons, and was recently picked up by Fox and now has 10 seasons. The show is still popular, and Netflix is probably losing a lot of new subscribers by removing it. It’s one of the greatest shows from the 90s. Please bring it back.
