Jericho's Fuzzy Future


To say that to some extent Jericho Fans are frazzled would be an understatement. 4 Months have gone by since the cancellation of the show a second time; 4 months of waiting with very little to sustain them. This is no ones fault per se; the producers of the show have been attempting to negotiate new deals for Jericho while continuing on with their daily responsibilities. Such things take time so the fans mission, which they have chosen to accept, is to wait and believe in tomorrow.
The “chosen to accept” part is important here. Yesterday on the CBS message board Cingramaol wrote: “Those of us who are still here, four months post-cancellation, are probably the most hardcore of the show's hardcore fans.” This is true but we have all witnessed and welcomed a slow influx of new fans as well. I can only imagine what it would be like to come into the fandom at this point. They are brave souls who come in with pure excitement for the show and they inspire us to continue.
Of course we have lost a few along the way. The face of Jericho Blogging has changed decidedly over the last 6 months as Jane from the Jericho Monster dropped down to one daily Jericho blog from three and then finally decided to morph the Monster itself into a blog about change in new media. Jane inspired me to begin blogging and I will never forget first getting to know her and realizing just how much content she was taking in and filtering on a daily basis. Her interviews with the fans, cast and crew were ground breaking. Two more Jericho bloggers it appears we have lost are Amber from Watching Jericho and Teresa from the Jericho Bulletin. The latter sadly has completely removed her blog from the web. Kystorms from Jericho on CBS dropped the CBS and also came close to ending her blog. But now I see that MikesMom has been added to the list of contributors to the newly designed Jericho blog. I look forward to reading her posts.
We also nearly lost the popular forum Radio Free Jericho when the owner openminded1 decided it should close. A member, Ka4ist, took it over and with the help of Maybei and a whole host of dedicated mods has overseen its revision and growth. I visited the other day and the place looks great.
I could go on, but that is enough for now. Fuzzy is fine by me as long as we keep moving and in this fandom the movement is the one thing you can really hold onto.

Terocious, thank you. You make the profound into simple. Knowing you has enriched my life. You're a fine person and blogger.

I love Jericho and I loved blogging it but this quote sums up my feelings very well:

Some think it's holding on that makes one strong; sometimes it's letting go.
-- Sylvia Robinson

I learned much from blogging Jericho and I made some true friends for which I am grateful. I love Jericho as much as I ever did but it was time for me to move on.

I also would like to add...just because you can't 'see' us, doesn't mean we are not there. CBS knows we are there! CBS knows we are everywhere!

I have met so many great people thru' the wonders of Jericho and I do miss them, but I am still present where it counts I think. I just can't keep up with everything eh...!

'Fuzzy'....absolutely perfect Tero!!!
