Who Loves You Baby?

.

I understand that word has come from the creators of Jericho that they would like to see less money spent on campaigns and that there is much speculation as to why. There have been a number of theories floated on the boards but I would like to offer another here because I feel it simply cannot be overlooked and if true correcting it cannot be emphasized strongly enough.
.
If the folks who make the show watch the boards and have seen discontent lead to anger and eruption and if they have also taken note of fan insistence that only season 3 will do then they may feel that our continuing to invest in Jericho may be leading to eventual disappointment. From there it would not be that big of a stretch for them to imagine us turning our frustration on them if the outcome of their efforts does not jive with our expectations.
.
How would we change this if it were true? It might be time for some Unconditional Jericho Love. We love and respect the creative team behind Jericho and we love the premise so let’s promise to try to keep on loving Jericho. The time between cancellation and now has most certainly shaped the realm of possibilities for the next incarnation so for the good of the many, and out of respect for one another’s investment of time, money and energy let’s be prepared to love whatever new Jericho development comes our way. Then if we do not we will have come by it honestly as the expression goes and we can reevaluate our position at that time.
.
Even if this turned out not to be the reason for their request what could it hurt to reassure those working hard on our behalf that we appreciate their efforts and are openminded about what they will produce?

A very good point. I'll take Jericho in whatever form is decided, but I haven't stated that often enough.

Thank you for this! I will be thrilled with any new Jericho, no matter what form it takes. The fact that the creators love this story as much as we do, and are working to continue it in any way possible says much about them, and how they feel about us.

Can't wait to see what's next!
