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 Netflix
In light of the recent news of Dominion being cancelled by Syfy. I propose a change for it to be saved/picked up by Netflix. The show is not only the sequel to the cinematic hit Legion but, it has interesting plots and characters as well as a big following of fans who had loved the show since the first episode. It deserves to be saved and continued on with another season.
Petition to Ted Sarandos, Greg Peters, Kelly Bennett, Netflix (Reed Hastings Chief Executive Officer Netflix Inc.)
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
Petition to Harmony Gold and Big West/Studio Nue and Tatsunoko
Harmony Gold Free Macross to the Western World
More than a decade has passed since we have last seen a complete and literal presentation of the original 1982 Macross TV series here in the United States. The ADV English dub of the 1982 Macross TV series was released on DVD in 2006! No other Macross TV series or movie from the ongoing Macross franchise has been seen outside of Japan since 1995! I have finally realized what the problem is: Harmony Gold and its international Macross trademarks! I, Tony Bui, started this petition because it does not make sense to me for Harmony Gold to continue blocking any of the ongoing Macross franchise from being released outside of Japan. Harmony Gold has held onto the 1982 Macross series via trademarks for three decades! In that time, Harmony Gold could not legally or creatively produce anything like what Studio Nue, Artland, Big West and Bandai Visual have done for the Japanese Macross franchise! While Macross in the USA has been at a standstill since 1982, Macross has been an ongoing franchise in Japan, which has resulted in many Macross productions, such as the 1984 Macross: Do you remember love? Movie, the 1987 Macross Flashback 2012 OVA, the 1992 Macross II OVA, 1994 Macross Plus OVA and movie, the 1994 Macross 7 TV series, the 2004 Macross Zero OVA, the 2007 Macross Frontier TV series and movies and the 2016 Macross Delta TV series! Macross is a story originally created by the staff of Studio Nue and then produced through Tatsunoku Productions Ltd. and licensed by Big West. The “Veritech fighters” that you know from the Macross Saga have always been called “Valkyries” designed by the original visionary creator: Shoji Kawamori! Shoji Kawamori is also the man who has designed many of the other mechanical designs for other Japanese anime TV shows like Transformers - Optimus Prime, Eureka 7 and Gundam 0083. Harmony Gold has done nothing in the making of the original production of the 1982 Macross TV series. Since the year 2000, Harmony Gold has been sending cease and desists letters to companies world-wide who were willing to release any Macross series related video productions or merchandised goods. Harmony Gold has used their branded product “Robotech” to block any new Macross productions that were to be released outside of Japan via trademarking the Macross name and logo! The 1982 Macross TV Series is one of three Japanese anime adapted to the United States market to be branded with TV series name “ROBOTECH” by Harmony Gold. The TV series ROBOTECH is made up of three different anime series: the 1982 Macross TV series, the Genesis Climber MOSPEADA TV series and the Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross TV series. These three TV series were edited together to make into one TV series under the name ROBOTECH as agreed upon by the Revell model company and Harmony Gold. The original storyline of Macross is not inherently connected to those two other anime series. Macross is a story about pop music and clashing cultures, transforming war machines and love! Apart from the love triangles, music and transforming mechanical designs, those two other anime series have nothing in the common with the original Macross. Harmony Gold has also consistently sub-licensed poorly engineered and manufactured toys and goods without crediting the original mechanical and character design creators! Like the Robotech II (OVA), the Shadow Chronicles (OVA), and the Robotech Academy Kickstarter TV series have been abandoned by Harmony Gold in anticipation for a Robotech movie that was supposed to be in production since 2007! Harmony Gold has yet to follow through on an original, high-quality Robotech production. Recently, Harmony Gold has twice use the Kickstarter website to generate revenue for new Robotech properties. The Robotech Tactics Kickstarter has been successful only because of the Macross mechanical designs of Shoji Kawamori and Kazutaka Miyatake. In no way have the original creators been compensated by Harmony Gold for their designs and work outside of Japan. The Robotech Academy Kickstarter failed even when trying to use the reputation of the deceased Carl Macek. I cannot see how Carl Macek could have made any meaningful contribution for the proposed series: Robotech Academy. I do respect Carl Macek for being one of the people who had introduced Japanese anime to the United States, but that marketing style of 1980s anime has ended. Many current anime series have been released in their original format without any adaptations made for the North American audience. I state that there is no legal nor ethical right for any company to use trademarking on a 30 years old TV series to block all new derivative TV works, especially when Harmony Gold has had no part in the making of the original TV creation! I also state that Harmony Gold has never really had new, original or successful ideas for their ROBOTECH franchise. Sign this petition if you agree that all of the Macross franchise international license should be granted only to the original creators and producers: Studio Nue, Artland, Big West, and Bandai Visual! The world-wide Macross fans need to be free from Harmony Gold's rule over Macross! Long Live Culture!
Petition to ABC, Ben Sherwood, Channing Dungey
Renew the Reality Television Series "The Quest"
The ABC-TV reality show "The Quest" marks a unique concept in television reality series - that of a scripted reality show in which the contestants, (here, dubbed "Paladins") are immersed in a fantasy world. Their job is to react to the situations put to them, overcome barriers related to the story, and avoid elimination each week, ("becoming the 'one true hero'"). This show has sparked the imaginations of millions of viewers and has created an armada of fans, now known as "The Quest Army". We are on Facebook ("The Quest Army"), as well as Twitter (search for #TheQuest or #TheQuestArmy). In addition, the producers, contestants, and fans have interacted a lot on these social media sites, to an extent not seen before in Television/Social Media circles. All of us in "The Quest Army" come from diverse backgrounds, but share a love of a story that has connected all of us with a fantasy world that we would want to inhabit. Coupled with the interaction of all those who made it, gives us an excitement for this show not seen before. It has been observed by many online fans that this show has "connected families" and brought back the notion of "family television viewing" again. We, as the collective known as "The Quest Army", respectfully request that you renew this series for another season, so that we might continue sharing in this wonderful fantasy world brought to us by extremely talented individuals and continue the tradition of "family television viewing".
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. So we better hurry if we want to have Hallmark and Feeln give the series a second season.

Save Person of Interest!!!
Person of Interest is one of the most unique shows on TV today. It has built a large fan base that reaches from America to China to Turkey to France and everywhere in between. We've built great friendships around this show. It entertains us, thrill's us, makes us cry and makes us laugh. It gives us LGBT representation and gives us some of the truest representations of a mental disorder. We've been fighting to keep this show alive and would love to see another network pick it up, even if it's just for one more season. Don't let a show we love so much disappear. And that includes all characters, Reese, Finch, Fusco, Root, Shaw, and Bear! We want either a redo of season 5, an alternate universe, a spin off, anything where we can have the whole cast return.
