I didn`t know about the troubles the series had until i read about it in the forums.
I almost cried. :cry:
I also instantly signed the petition.

(btw this is my first post. Hello everyone)

... and this is my first welcome! Welcome to PEEL! BTW, does anyone know if there's any word from Fox about the petition? I assume that we're all signing it and Fox are just ignoring it.

Well, it is an online petition. It has to be pretty darn miraculous for anyone important not to ignore it.

Beleive it or not, snail mail STILL is the most effective way to get our message to Fox that we want to save this great show!
Online petions may be good, but they need to see the paper!   :cool:

Online petitions are too easily manipulated (one person using dozens of bogus email accounts to sign the petition), as to have any real impact. Written letters count for so much more, simply because they're physical. It shows people care enough about the show to actually sit down and write a letter themself. So sign the petition, but more importantly write letters to FOX.

BTW, welcome to PEEL, Azazel. Enjoy it here.   :D

BTW 2: We already have several threads about this:

I dont think we can do anything  :( No matter what we do, Fox will still ignore us.

Ha! Fox has no Idea what it or its fans want and besides, They can't cancel everything. My take is this. Unless the ratings contradict me That 80's Show, Sucks. That 70's show is a strong show and they will keep showing that. We know the Greg the Bunny and ARCTU and Pasadena Are comming. Bernie Mac isn't a very strong show and because Tidus is on at 9:30 that's pretty late. Futurama was Canceled because It didn't get the kind of ratings that King of the Hill got at a later time slot and the Simpsons does better than King of the Hill and the Simpsons are pretty much Fox's cash cow and we all know that the Simpsons aren't going anywere. Fox also Cancled The X-Files. So here is the

Cancled list:
1)The X-Files(9:00-10:00) Sunday
2)Futurama(7:00-7:30) Sunday
3)Family Guy[I think we all know this] (8:00-9:00)
4)The Tick(8:30-9:00)

On the Brink:
1)Tidus(9:30-10:00)Wednesday
2)Bernie Mac(8:30-9:00)Wednesday
3)That 80's show(8:00-8:30)Wednesday
4)Ally McBeal(9:00-10:00)Monday

Comming Soon:
1)Pasadena
2)ARCTU
3)Greg the Bunny

It's slowing down though. I was hoping it would get to 100,000.

Whoa, mArc! You're actually sending that stuff to Fox? Way to go mArc!  :) You'll be the hero no one knew before!

And it's good to hear the 80's show on the brink of getting cancelled. I can sleep easy now.  :)

Good job, Marc. It's a good thing we have a rich german around here to do stuff like this. I had to stop eating for weeks just to buy a damn book of stamps.

Haha, Ally and 80's Show are sucking. I'm surprised about Bernie Mac though. I thought that show was doing well(not that I care one way or another).

The X-Files is only cancelled because the show won't go anywhere next year. This is Gillian Anderson's last year as well as the series creator Chris Carter. Without Mulder and/or Scully or Chris Carter The X-Files just isn't The X-Files. You try and watch it without them, I woun't be able to.

I wouldn't watch The X-Files with only Agent Doggett and Reyes, it would totally suck, so if the FOX execs have made ONE good desicion in their careers this is most likely it.

Maybe it was just me misreading something, but I thought Rough Draft had volunteered to do the printing and shipping of the petition.

It's from the Star Trek:TNG episode "Darmok". In this episode Picard tells the story of the mythic Mesopotamian king Gilgamesh to an alien captain named Dathon. Dathon's people, the Tamarians, speaks entirely in metaphors, hence the weird sentences.

Christ on a bike, I'm sorry I asked.

Actually I vaguely remember watching five minutes of that episode and laughing heartily before putting my boot through the television screen.

I never heard that phrase before. It struck me as very funny.  :) Having the name 'Gilgamesh' & never knowing of that ST:TNG episode seemed a bit strange.

not everything started and ended with ST.  Isn't Gilgamesh some guy in mythology?  Norse perhaps?

yup. it's some mythological guy. but he's from the babylonian or assyrian mythology. that legend is pretty old i think. like 3000 -2500 years (first written version of it).
