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.
Petition to Animal Planet
Animal Planet - Help Us Stop The Illegal Dog Meat Trade in South Korea, China and Vietnam
Each of us has a choice, to play the silent witness, act as an accomplice, or to choose every day to act and defend the right to life that is given to all sentient beings. The latter is the stance we choose to take, and we ask that you please stand with us. South Korea continues to support and permit a horrific and illegal dog and cat meat trade that subjects millions of animals to abuse, torture and murder on a daily basis. While animal protection laws have been put in place to prohibit these practices, the government and its law enforcement do nothing to prevent the continued butchering and sales of these animals. All we see are muzzled mouths, tied up feet, blinded eyes, and the same sad look which is fixed and doesn’t change, when the darkness comes and the smell of blood fills the air. Later we will know that the blood of those poor animals was on our hands, and those millions of dogs and cats locked in cages were waiting for us to give a hand, and we were their last resort. We know that Animal Planet has inspired billions of people everywhere with its knowledge of science and culture. We believe that you can be a voice for these poor animals who have none; we are holding the fate of these animals between our hands and giving it to you - let's make a new history. An age of humanity and tolerance; let's win this battle against such dark forces, giving these beautiful creatures their right to live. We hope that you'll accept to show people - even in a short movie - some of what's happening to dogs and cats in Asia , and how they are sold there as food . Martin Luther King said once that: “The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.”

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

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.
Petition to Hallmark Cards, Inc., Feeln
Give the Rainbow Brite reboot a second season #RainbowBriteSeason2
The Rainbow Brite reboot has been broadcasted on November 6, 2014, airing on Hallmark's streaming service Feeln, has concluded it's 1st (and mostly only season) on November 20, 2014. leaving the reboot of the series abandoned. if you look at the original Rainbow Brite series from 1983, the first incarnation of the series concluded with 13 episodes in less than three years. the current incarnation of the series was done by screenwriter Rachel Vine, with the animation done by Raymond Arrizon. the Feeln original series features the voices of Emily Osment (Rainbow Brite herself), Marcus Toji (Brian), Molly Ringwald (Dark Princess), Cam Clarke (Murky Dismal and Red Butler), Mark Hanson (Starlite), Evan Cooper (Buddy Blue), Marina Flores (Patty O'Green and Mr. "Twink" Glitters), Alexandra Krosney (Stormy and Canary Yellow) and Todd Bosley (Lurky). I had clarified that the reason of the Reboot only having 3 episodes was due to attempted reboots of 1980's cartoons were overshadowed by the success of different Transformers TV Shows and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. another example is the 2011 ThunderCats reboot was canceled due to low toy sales. We must demand Feeln and it's parent company Hallmark to extend the Rainbow Brite reboot for a second season. and my proposal for that specific revival to have at least "26" episodes If the Petition reaches 100 signatures or more. Please support this petition to have the Rainbow Brite reboot come back with a second season or more. Follow the Rainbow Brite account on several social media sites. https://www.facebook.com/Rainbowbrite/ https://www.twitter.com/briteisback also follow Feeln as well. https://www.facebook.com/feeln/ https://www.twitter.com/feeln/ The deadline is November 6, 2017, around the Rainbow Brite Reboot's third anniversary.
