(NOTE: This thread begins HERE)
Most of you can ignore this post -- I'm putting it up for various suited humans who may wander by. Phone calls continue to be made. If -- BIG IF -- emails and cards need to be sent, we'll definitely take you up on your kind offers for help. That includes the folks from, I think, Scandinavia. Valiant effort with the Babelfish, guys.
Last week totaled out at an extra 10,000 hits to this website, and the website name is NOWHERE ON THE TORRENT -- that's just the people who took the extra effort to seek us out.
Things move slowly out here, but move they do ...
Also, to the couple thousand visitors and two hundred odd emailers and commenters, I'd like to pass on that the cast and director have been told about your enthusiasm. (Except Aimee. But she's young and hip, and will take a while to track down ...) They're all very moved that you've seen the work and responded. Thanks to you all.
I'd also like to remind you that illegal file-sharing is a bad, bad thing, and I in no way encourage it. All references to downloading sites will be immediately deleted from the this website. You, despite your enthusiasm, should be ashamed of yourselves. Ashamed.
Now, for a small sample for the suits (no links, and I think you know why) of responses from your emails, comments, and websites and messageboards around the world:
"one of the smartest and stylish pilots I've seen in all my years of watching the goggle box ... [If] the DVD comes out I'll have link to Amazon and a write-up on the show."
"Thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank everyone for me, will you. Thank you all so much. Thank you. If you haven't noticed, I cannot stop saying this: thank you."
"... okay, I had tears in my eyes ..."
"When the show made me wipe the constant smile off my face with a wide grin I'd turn to [my girlfriend] and she's grinning too. We both tensed when a trigger was pulled and we both shivered slightly with the line 'You would have missed...' ... [Miranda Zero] never even got a f*cking chance to live, and I'm already quoting her. F*ck us then. F*ck us for putting up with the utter sh*t that spills from TV every second and not DEMANDING better. Because people out there are willing to give it."
"... one of the best 45 minutes of TV I've had the pleasure of watching."
"Just saw the Global Frequency pilot and, simply put it is the best pilot I've ever seen ...Every UK TV forum is buzzing with news of this ... Kudos on making such a brilliant show.
"... Like the best episodes of the X-Files ..."
"Watched it. Watched it again. Watched it a third time ... Simply amazing."
"... Better than possibly all other science fiction shows currently on the air. It has snappy dialog ... It has cool, convincing characters. It has situations you haven't seen before. It has weird science. But what's most cool is that it is all about a paradigm for global action that you can love whether you're red or blue -- ordinary people who are extraordinary in some way who are taking responsibility for fixing things that are broken, regardless of consequences, when the powers that be not only haven't asked them to, but would be pissed off at for trying."
"That was the worst written piece of garbage I have seen in a LONG TIME." (hey, how'd that get in here?)
"How can [anyone] turn down 'Mission Impossible' meets 'The X Files' ?"
"You'll never see this year's best new show ..."
"People have an amazing proclivity to accept and even embrace strange and new ideas. The show is WAY off beat and politically radicalized, and yet comforting and empowering ... It's really a tragedy this didn't work out."
"Moments of utter beauty intermingled with moments of complete horror ... It was even better than the Lost opening episode, which was the best of this year's shows ... I didn't just like this show, I loved it ..."
"I recently had a chance to see the Global Frequency pilot ... I loved it and I bought the entire comic run from Amazon this morning to share with a few friends."
"Just wanted to chime in on how much I loved the Global Frequency pilot ... Absolutely fantastic stuff. Ya'll did a good thing."
"Well, crap. As I finished watching the Global Frequency pilot that recently leaked on the Internet, I had the most bittersweet feeling I've ever had. There are few television shows that I can ever expect to be so original, unexpected and beautifully shot. Even though Global Frequency was one of the best pilots I can remember watching, I was angry and sad when it was over. How could it be possible that I would never see this story develop?"
"So I just wanted to say thank you for giving me even just one episode of a show that is different than anything else on TV. I won't forget it. And now that you've turned me onto the Global Frequency, I've at least got numerous comic stories to enjoy."
"Brilliant. F*cking brilliant."
"This show rocks so much ... Even my non-techie wife loved it.. and that's saying something loud and clear."
"Just finished watching the pilot. Holy f*cking sh*t. That would be the absolute best show on television. It is criminal that that's all we get ... Who can we write to? Who can we call? How can we get this show on the air?"
"WHO. DO. WE. WRITE. ABOUT. THIS?"
"It's 3AM and I just got done watching the show ... It. Was. Great. I got teary eyed at the end of the show, proud of what I think individuals CAN do when they put their mind to it."
"Watching this reminds me why I write. Thanks."
"... Unspeakably good ... I hate sci-fi TV. Flat-out-f*cking-hate-it. My favorite shows are Entourage and Rescue Me, and I loved it."
"It is a great, great, great, piece of TV. It seems like it had the potential to be loved and adored as much as "Lost," was this last season."
" ... I watched the pilot just now and it makes me really sad how much garbage gets on television, turns people -off- to television, and quality, interesting themes and premises like this one get thrown by the wayside ... done right, the Global Frequency can succeed ... Besides, Aleph is hot."
"I'd pay just to have an mp3 of that ringtone for the Global Frequency phones. How do I get one?" (Note: that tone was actually just a temp)
"The best new show of 2005"
"Wow. Just wow ... Anything I can do. Just... Anything."
"If you want to see the best pilot never turned into a series, check out Global Frequency."
"In today's Metro Newspaper which covers the central belt of Scotland, UK (That's Edinburgh to Glasgow) there's a letter: 'Get on the Global Frequency. More details to follow' signed Agent 483, Edinburgh. ... This newspaper has a circulation of about 1/4 million readers ... It's a daily and is the top daily newspaper read in the Central Belt of Scotland. Looks like someone is trying to get a message out there ..."
"I would certainly pay cash money up front to get a couple more episodes made."
Thanks to you all. Even if nothing comes of this, it's great to know we managed to give you 45 minutes of something you loved, something that got you excited, and at the very least something that may have helped many of you discover the comic book series (and put some coin into the corporate overlords' pockets, hint bloody hint).
