Time to go NUTS for Community (Campaign)

Greetings.

I have one word for you: NUTS. No comprehende? That's Ok. I'll elaborate.

Back in 2006 the post-apocalyptic survival drama Jericho was facing cancellation after a short hiatus. The series finale for the first season saw two groups of survivors, each vying for each other's surrender. The protagonist, Jake, under pressure from the other side was contacted via radio to surrender. Jake would never surrender, never back down, and in the words of the historic figure General Anthony McAuliffe, he replied with one word as the series wrapped: NUTS.

CBS were soon inundated with 20 tonnes of peanuts from scorned fans. After seeing such great support and not being able to find a hungry enough elephant, Jericho was renewed for a second season. I propose we use the same tactics to remind NBC how much this show means to us, even if it's technically not officially cancelled yet. Except we give it some Community flavor, because quite frankly i'm allergic to nuts..

Here's the plan:
1.) Download the SixSeasonsAndAMovie.pdf file from here.
2.) Print the DVD cover, preferably in color but it doesn't matter.
3.) Slip the DVD cover into an old DVD case.
4.) Mail them to the following address:

Head of Programming
C/O NBC Universal Inc.
30 Rockefeller Plaza 
New York, NY 10112

The DVD cover is meant to be, for all purposes, an elaborate joke. It is what I envision the series would look like if it were to run for six seasons until an eventual movie. And yes. I am aware that Yvette Nicole Brown has been replaced by Queen Latifah. It's a joke.


I'm not going to sit on my hands whilst they cancel another great TV show. It's Arrested Development all over again.
Hope you guys like the idea, and I hope you join me in this crusade.

I am sooooo up for this! :D And just in case people have trouble; if you go to your local DVD rental store they usually sell spare DVD covers for like 50c each. I work at a video store so I'll grab one on my next shift! :D

Thanks for the support.

I worked at Blockbuster in my youth, so I have 'procured' quite a few DVD cases in my time.

I plan on sending around 40 of them myself, and I'm in Australia. I'm committed to the cause.

Please RT or share the link here on message boards, twitter, facebook etc.

This idea is amazing!!! I'm in Spain now, but I'm going to see if I can do this. I was already planning to write a letter of sorts, so why not add an awesome prop like this? :D

I thought i'd explain a few things on the DVD cover for those interested. Keep in mind this is what could be possible if the show were to run to a Sixth Season and a Movie:

*Annie Edison discovers Marijuana and becomes a free-spirited stoner. She majors in Law to try and legalize it.
*Jeff Winger finds out his father was Pierce all along, and for some reason has adopted a Justin Beiber hair-do. Probably because it's the latest ironic hipster style.
*Britta Perry got knocked up around Season 5 and found her calling; to be a mother.
*Troy Barnes lost an eye when his Kick-Puncher robot he built went rogue, and he now takes part in street fights for a kind of 'Plumbers Fight Club'.
*Abed Nadir gets kidnapped and replaced by his evil universe twin. The twin, for some reason, has a similar scar to John Locke on LOST and Troy VS Abed begins; similar to the man in black vs Jacob from LOST.
*Pierce Hawthorne has long since passed away, but continues to haunt everyone for fun. Evil Abed is the only one who can see him.
*Shirley Bennet was replaced at the end of Season 4 by Queen Latifah in a desperate attempt to increase ratings.
*Dean Pelton discovers a way to fix his life-time baldness, taking an experimental drug that grows the ugliest head of hear you will ever see.
*Senor Chang is still shunned by the group. Even on the DVD cover, the joke is that no-one cares about Chang. (Although we love him)

The only problem is that Jericho is the reason all the fan-based renewal drives might not work.

Yes, they got another season...under the promise that they would get others to watch. Ratings went down. Jericho got cancelled.

Also, do you know anything about the Save Angel campaign? They actually hired a van to drive around L.A. with a Save Angel billboard. Show stayed cancelled. (Unless you count the comics.)

Point: I desperately want another season of Community. But I worry that fan-drive history will work against us.

To be fair, Angel had the Whedon curse upon't.

Completely agree with you marinica.

The best we can do is try. But I know that if I did nothing i'd always regret it.

Also, Arrested Development renewed: YAY!

Yeah, back a few years ago, Middlefans sent in M&Ms to ABC Family to try and save "The Middleman" (because The Middleman's nickname is MM). The show was never "officially" cancelled, but it never came back. (There's a small, vindictive part of me that hopes the executives ate the M&Ms and got cavities. The kind part of me hopes they were donated to charity or something.)

The things that the showrunner of "The Middleman" told us to do back then were to watch the show (especially on the website), buy the DVDs, and participate in discussion on the show's site.

I'm all for doing things to get NBC's attention, but I'd hate for it all to backfire, too.

The cover had me laughing so much, it is so funny...and clever!

Great way to continue to show our appreciation for this amazing show and everyone involved with it.

It is better to try than to don't do anything at all.

I think this is a great plan. I'm sick of great shows not getting the credit they deserve. I write for a site and did a short piece on the show and your campaign. Hope it helps raise some more awareness.

В немецкой школе запретили домашние задания
В настоящее время в гимназии Elsa-Braendstroem в Вестфалии введена 44-часовая учебная неделя.

Школьники зачастую возвращаются [url=http://pain-148528.livejournal.com/]после уроков[/url] поздно вечером. Из-за этого, по словам педагогов, у них совсем не остается времени на отдых.

Руководство гимназии решило освободить учеников от домашнего задания. Теперь у ребят будет больше свободного времени.

Такое решение связано с удлинением учебного дня. К этому привела реформа образования, благодаря которой все школьное образование скоратилось на один год. Сотрудники гимназии считают, что даже 44-часовая учебная неделя, которая была до реформы образования, - это слишком. Зачастую дети остаются на уроках до 6 часов вечера.

Однако нововведение не повлияет на качество обучения. Запрет на домашние работы будет компенсироваться более интенсивной работой в классе. При этом, отстающим ученикам все-таки будут назначать дополнительные задания.
