No, I have not disappeared from the planet. Now that that's cleared up...

I heard recently several things of interest. A) Amber has been cast in the sequel to 'The Grudge' as Sarah Michelle Gellar's character's little sister. B) Jason is to participate in a new show on CBS (forgive me, I can't remember the name or plot...) and C) CBS has had Barbara write/produce a new pilot for a show called 'Ultra'...Sadly, there is still no word on Season 2 dvds or any sort of wrap up, basically *anything* to do with Joan...But I thought these snippets on the actors were good. Another point of interest, Constance Zimmer (Lily Waters) plays a character called Brianna on ABC's new 'InJustice'.

Later people! Remember, make good ripples!

Season 2 of Joan news
So my dad emailed CBS Friday and got a response about Season 2 of Joan the very next day! Figures that I email and send post cards to them all summer and don't get a response... Anyway, this is the answer he got:

Hello James,

Thank you for contacting the CBS Store.

At this time, we do not have an exact date for when the series "Joan Of
Arcadia" Season 2 will be available. Please keep checking the website
for the most recent updates regarding the release of new product.

a little hopeful, eh?

From the Creators of 'Save Joan'
We would now like to present to you: Making Good Ripples, an idea inspired very much by 'Joan of Arcadia.' Please, visit the site and get involved. What better way to honor Joan and the lessons we learned from this wonderful show than by carrying on with her mission?

Just a reminder!
Hey everybody!
Just a reminder: don't forget to send lots of e-mail, snail mail, faxes, etc. over the weekend so that inboxes are clogged on Monday!
Thanks for all the support!

Save Joan of Arcadia!: ROUND 2: TIMING IS EVERYTHING.
This message is to let eveyone know that WE ARE NOT GIVING UP! Keep
e-mailing, faxing, calling, and sending letters to CBS and Paramount
asking for a wrap up and season 2 on DVD.

In addition to this, we will soon be launching a new wave of the
campaign, based off of a quote from Nina Tassler, CBS's Entertainment
President. This new wave will be comprised of requests to bring the show back
in 2006.

**"Joan was a sad loss for us," she says.

But that won't stop the network from looking beyond crime. In
developing dramas for fall 2006, "we really are starting to aggressively look
for different kinds of shows," Tassler says.**

We're still here and we're still fighting. We'll let them know we're
not going anywhere. Because, Timing Is Everything.

BLJ --> Another way to keep Joan alive
I know that the fight is not over to Save Joan of Arcadia, not for me, not for you, not for any of us. But it looks like we are going to be facing a long and cold winter my friends. As soon as I heard the news that Joan was canceled I was so upset that words simply cannot express my sadness over losing a show that deeply touched me in a way that I thought something as trivial as television would never be able to do. I’ve been following the activity on this board and have been a silent contributor to our fight. The reason that I am now posting a message is to share with you something that was said to me that introduced me to a new battle-- one in which it’s fate doesn’t lie in the hands of money hungry corporate executives that only care about ratings. My older brother, also a Joan fan, who has been helping me send common thread scarves, sewer walking poems, and letters to CBS and various television networks showed me a way to keep Joan alive. I was talking to him about how unfair it was that Joan got canceled, about how I at least wanted just one more season, just to see Joan become a senior and graduate from school. I wanted to have that sense of closure, I thought that maybe I would be slightly less upset if I could at least see Joan make it through high school and into the world. He told me that he knew it was unfair but that to keep the overall message of the show alive I should “Be Like Joan”. All I could mutter was a confused “What?”. When he asked me why I loved the show so much I answered that it was because Joan of Arcadia inspired me so much. Joan makes a difference, she’s fearless, not afraid to make a fool of herself, and she always ended up helping people in these really amazing ways. And as my brother stood up and started to move towards the door to mail yet another Bring Joan Back letter he said, “Do you think you need to be a character in a television show who talks to God to be able to do those things?”. So that one sentence has led me here. I’ve never been much of a joiner, not because I’m shy or easily embarrassed....simply because I’ve never felt the need or really understood what good I personally could bring to something. This Save Joan campaign is really one of the few things that I’ve ever given all of my effort to. But one of the things I’ve learned from Joan is that it’s all about being involved. You can’t do anything until you start something. So in honor of that lesson that I’ve learned from Joan I plan on starting a lot of somethings this year- in my senior year of high school. So while we are still fighting and working towards saving our show of Joan of Arcadia I’m trying to spread the word on another way to keep it alive. Go out and join something, help someone, or even just listen to someone. Make fools of yourselves, take up something that you suck at, and even if you hate Chemistry take the AP Chem class. In short.... BLJ- Be Like Joan.

This is the CBS link with Joan's diary on it. There is also a question at the bottom right to which you can give 1 of 3 answers about Joan forgiving Adam for cheating.

There were two seasons, but I had originally thought there were 3 because when I was working at the CBS affiliate there were intially just a few episodes shot so they could see how it would do. Then they shot a second series of episodes which would still be considered season 1 but I considered it "season 2" because those follow-up episodes are where the show tanked. They changed the plot around a little, tried to make it funnier and less dramatic. There were lots of shots of Joan walking around with a "confused teenage look" on her face, with "dorky" music beneath. When the ratings started to tank, the writers changed again and brought a few more creative episodes in for the end of the season, plus the cliffhanger where we learn she could have been hallucinating. Then Season 2, where they really did bring back the reasons we loved Joan to begin with, and why even at 8pm Friday JoA could succeed. But alienating viewers once in a bad time slot with a good show, and it is harder to get them back again. Keep up the good fight and thanks.

Check out the Le Mars, IA 'Three Wishes'
What's everybody replacing their Friday night watchings with? I don't know much about time slotness, but I'm gonna be tuning into Three Wishes this fall (one of the first episodes of which was filmed a few miles away from me, I might add [teehee]). It'll be watching something worthwhile and stickin it to Moonves at the same time! Anybody else have any suggestions/plans?

Okay, I realize there has not been much activity for a while. But we aren't giving up. Anyone who would like to help out contact Angie. We're still taking ideas. We're also planning to make the weekend mailings as was done over the 15-18th of July a regular thing until somebody pays attention. I'll give you more info as soon as we've made more decisions. Until then, keep the faith. We'll get something. We just need to keep working.

Ryan on Ghost Whisperer?!
I just got done watching Big Brother, and it reminded me of how last summer, the commercials of the second season of Joan of Arcadia would get me so excited. But tonight, I was disturbed when I saw that Ryan Hunter aka Wentworth Miller is on the show Ghost Whisperer. Talk about a traitor.

Plan B of Save Joan Updated!
Beginning Friday, July 15th, we will have a focused mailing/faxing/emailing effort with Paramount and CBS that will run all weekend and end the evening of Monday the 18th. The goal is two fold: To get season 2 on DVD ASAP and to get a wrap-up movie or mini-series! The idea is to flood both of these places with as much mail, and as many faxes and emails as we can so when they return to work Monday morning they have a ton of things to deal with in regards to Joan. We will do this once a month for as long as it takes. So get ready because we must show the Powers That Be at Paramount and CBS that we are NOT going away until we get what we deserve!

Buying DVDs to save Joan
Hey y'all, a friend was telling me on the weekend that "The Family Guy" was cancelled, but then the network reconsidered based on the popularity of the DVD set (over 1 million sales). I know it is a remote possibility but perhaps high sales will encourage them to bring Joan back, or at least listen to our request to tie up loose ends. (If they know it is worth the money they are more likely to do it)

Oh, FYI, I invited some friends over for a Joan marathon consisting of 2 of the 6 discs (we didn't have time for the whole thing). Now they are pissed off, because they had never seen the show and are hooked. One spoke to me the next day and said she was buying the DVD set if only so she can see the rest of the season, but thinks she will now be buying Season 2 as well. The others don't have the money but are saving up to buy it late July. Maybe we can get other people hooked ;-)

hey everyone. i just wanted to know what the latest campaign for "Joan" was. I recently got an email from a local radio station. Apparently they will be having Amber on the show and want to talk to her about it. Unfortunately I haven't been on in a while so I really have no idea. HELP!

DVD sales
Anyone know how the JoA dvd sales are coming along? They're what the execs will be looking at most.
