Bizaardvark Wizard of Oz Episode

Since the Disney Channel show Bizaardvark was renewed for a 3rd season this year, I figured I should cooperate with an episode which would make progress. Here's the story for this petition. When I've watched both seasons, they were really amazing and somehow I had a thought after seeing one of the episodes. That thought was: A special episode of Bizaardvark with a spoof on The Wizard of Oz and I already got the name Ozaardvark last year with the characters from the show [like in the picture above] for the roles. It would be funny & enjoyable for viewers and fans everywhere. We see that in some TV shows past and present has some references to the movie [quotes, themes, etc.] and such because it's legend in movie history, but this one would be great for fans of both Wizard of Oz and Bizaardvark to watch whether a half-hour or 1 hr. special like they’ve never done before. If I can help Disney Channel make that happen, then so can you. I don't care what people say about the show or its stars, it's a great one and we can hope for an episode like this to occur unless we do something about it together. This would also work without 2 of the show's main creators Josh Lehrman & Kyle Stegina since I've learned that they left, but it'll be okay without them 'cuz we can always remember that in the first place, it was they who made the show from the beginning. Just imagine Amelia, Paige, Frankie & Bernie going somewhere over the rainbow and down the Yellow Brick Road. If they're going to make some videos, Oz is the perfect place to do it and there's no place like home for Bizaardvark. Sign this petition, support and share! Good luck. #Ozaardvark

Petition to MTV

Cancel MTV's Made in Staten Island or remove the borough's name from the title

The portrayal of Staten Island as a cesspool of gangsters, meatheads and low lives appears to be main and focus of MTV show development in recent years. The launch of this new show "Made in Staten Island" is just another iteration of the aforementioned. It is built on the premise that kids from Staten Island all grow up surrounded by the mafia in their lives; this is far from the truth.  If anything these kids are growing up in the opioid epidemic that is taking the lives of their friends and family, they are suffering the breakdown of traditional family values. These are the real epidemics surrounding our youth; ones that do not descriminate and impacts all equally. Perhaps  MTV should focus on these epidemics and their impact on our youth rather than how "lucky" Karina is to have the guidance of her grandfather, notorious mob murder turned informant, "Sammy The Bull" Gravano. A show like this demeans what it is to be from Staten Island; something that should never be encouraged especially when it is untrue.  Staten Island has the one of the highest per capita incomes out of the five boroughs and we also have several higher education institutions with very good graduation rates and excellent Public Schools serviced by caring teachers.  For MTV though promoting and glorifying individuals of poor moral character seems to sell more than addressing real issues that kids are dealing with. This is evident by the other series that are active or have been on the network such as the Jersey Shore, 16 and Pregnant and the likes thereof.  I am asking that you stand with me and sign this petition to cancel or change the title of this show and protect the reputation of our home.  PLEASE SHARE WITH ALL VIA TWITTER, FB, IG OR WHATEVER SOCIAL MEDIA OUTLET YOU USE   Thank you, Joseph Maniscalco

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

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.
