We do not feel that SciFi gave Tremors an opportunity to gain its audience. We think it should be given another chance. And we think
we can make it happen!
- In spite of the episodes being shown out of order and being uncerimoniously yanked off the schedule for months, Tremors stayed on
the list of top ten SciFi shows for it's entire run, including reruns. Stampede Entertainment admits the series came very close to the
ratings goals. If given a proper opportunity to gain an audience, there's no reason it can't do even better.
- There is a movie coming out in December that is already getting good advance reviews. That kind of publicity can't help but give the
series a ratings boost.
- Tremors continues a fan favorite WORLDWIDE. It's not just a US phenomonon. There are Tremors websites set up as far-flung as the
UK, Australia and Russia. This means the potential marketbase for the show is just as wide. Fans of the series have logged in from Japan,
the Netherlands, Italy, Sweden, the UK, Australia, and Russia.
- Tremors is family entertainment. How many shows that feature guns can be said to be family entertainment? While the guns are there,
the people are never the targets. The show displays good family values and high moral standards. We NEED more shows like this.
- The Tremors series has definite DVD possibilities. The movies have always done well in the video market and there's no reason to think
the series won't do the same. The worldwide popularity of Tremors almost guarantees DVD sales will be successful.
- SciFi can't expect to run a network on one show. Stargate is great, but it's just One Show. People like diversity.
- Tremors isn't a flash-in-the-pan. There are three successful movies with another one on the way and the series has gathered even
more fans. This isn't something that's just going to go away.
- It's not too late for Tremors. It's still on the regular Friday night lineup and still fresh in people's minds. Fans not active in the mailing
lists and forums may still be unaware that it's been cancelled.
Please do the following:
1) Write a letter or postcard to the SciFi Channel. E-mail is nice, but not enough. Send e-mail AND postal mail.
2) Your letter should be brief, but polite and well thought-out, using proper grammar and spelling. (I know a lot of you are still in school -
get one of your English teachers to proof the letter before you send it. It will look better and you might get extra credit!)
3) Don't threaten, not even as a joke. Don't criticize - that's not what the letter is for. Just tell them you like the show and think it
deserves another chance.
4) Tell them why you like Tremors, and why they should give it another chance. Remember, they see the bottom line - they'll want to
know what's in it for them. (There's a whole list up above, and I'm sure you can think of more!)
5) Remind them that Tremors fans are worldwide, with Tremors sites set up in the UK, Australia, and Russia, as well as the US. Fans of
the series have logged in from Japan, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Sweden, Germany, the UK, Australia, and Russia.
6) Get your family, friends, and co-workers to write as well.
7) Do not say that you are writing as part of a campaign. They want to hear from "you," not "us."
