Watch free episodes of television shows like Jericho on the net

So I have been telling you on and off about my *other* love, Jericho, the best show on CBS (well, the best show ever IMHO) and the NUTS campaign we waged against CBS to stop them from cancelling Jericho. Well, in case you did not hear, we were successful and got Jericho back on the air! That’s right Jericho Fans, we start rebroadcasts of season 1 on July 6th. The way its going to work is that July 6th will be the pilot episode , and then on July 13th CBS will air the recap episode “Return to Jericho” and by episode 12, “The Day Before” back to back.

For the following Friday’s after CBS will air episodes 13 to 22!!! I am so psyched! No, I mean I am REALLY happy about the return of Jericho! I have a absolutely uncontrollable crush on Brad Beyer *who plays the adorable Stanley Richmond * and Skeet Ulrich, who plays our awesome hero Jake Green. Eye candy for sure.

And until the 6th of July, we fans can watch all the shows on CBS Jericho website for free, which is what all of us have been doing, since day one!

Free television shows are becoming the norm for the networks, its the way to get the show its fan base solidly built.

So, when ever I run across a website or blog that deals in free television that can be viewed on the net, I am all about getting the word out. I have never mentioned any before now, because I have never found a site that delivered them, until now that is.

Check out Watch Free Episodes, the selection is great. Love Everyone loves Raymond? Its here. Or are you a Starter Wife fan, check here for where to locate the episodes. Just into Biographies and Documentaries? Yes, you got it, check here! There is a great category list to choose from here, so I think that Watch Free Episodes will one day be the best place on the net to find the show you are looking for!

And if you are looking for the most recent info on what is happening with Jericho, check out Jericho~On~CBS.

peace my friends

Ubuntu Update June 14th

Well, I have to admit this right off the bat…. I have redone my pc a few times since I have been a solid Ubuntu user, but let  me clarify why.

Seems that there is a HUGE amount of learning to be done for things beyond the early steps one takes with using a computer. Feisty is a great setup, and 99 percent of what I needed was easily found in the synaptic area, or in automatix. But there were some things that needed tweaking, such as the real player so I could watch Jericho online , and I quickly found out one does not just set up programs willy nilly…. you have got to know what belongs where, and what will or will not work with what. Lots of whats huh.

I am still completely in love with this operating system, its all I could ever ask for and more.

But I need the damn book so I can learn how to move a file from here to there, or how to navigate to your different folders in the terminal, arrrrrrrrrrg that is driving me nuts. And I hope that for the next distro, I think its called; that they figure out a way to  upgrade from the CD without losing all your data.

What do I love the most about Feisty Fawn?

Ummm the eye candy takes the cake! I have so many choices on what I can have running for my desktop…… its mind boggling. Can you tell how much I love using Beryl? Even when that is off, my desktop is gorgeous!  Oh, and the music player Amarok…. too cool. It sets my files up for me all nice and neat and even gets my album covers, how cool is that?

What do I like the least about Feisty Fawn?

That they cant send me a free book 🙂 Yup, that is it.

Funny thing is, I sit here and work everyday on my most loved project * Jericho on CBS* and I wonder how in the world everyone who owns vista, that hard drive space sucking monster does not know about Ubuntu and if they do, why in the world are they still using Vista?

I worry about Vista users, I think they need intervention.

I will be popping in here as much as time allows me to, as Jericho is now more of my time than when it was cancelled. I am thrilled that my show is back, but now its up to us the fans to get this baby promoted to the folks who have not viewed before, and most especially to the Nielsen families.

I have a few thought rambling around about where I want this blog to go, I am thinking of asking a few friends if they would like to guest blog for me for a bit, it would be refreshing to not hear about Ubuntu or Jericho here I know.

I will be back in a day or so with some of my ideas, see you all then!

Owning more than one blog is NUTS :-)

Wow, I have been trying to like a crazed person to keep up on all my blogs, ever since the May 17th cancellation of Jericho by CBS. This whole move by the fans has been a awesome thing to be involved in. Imagine yourself swept away in a History making move like this? Its hard to let  go off, even for a few moments.

I find myself opening like 20 tabs in Firefox ( thank god for Firefox) just to have my blog Jericho~On~CBS open, the CBS Forums open, the various news blogs such as Find The Boots open, all to be able to be on top of any new information and what the flow of conversation is at the moment.

If you want to see history in the making, go on over to either my blog or the online forums, and if you are a fan, please join and help out!

JERICHO NEEDS YOU!

And what is just as cool as this move I am involved in * and that I love so much* is the fact that I actually met another Ubuntu user, who was experiencing the same problems viewing Jericho on CBS site using real player as I was! I was able to get them over the Ubuntu boards for what I feel is a great community of help!

Speaking of Ubuntu, still love my box now…. I mean love! This is almost a religious experience for me now, LOL! Have you tried it? Want to get away from Microslave? Vista killing your machine? Go over to Ubuntu.com and try out Feisty Fawn today, you can either download a ISO and start right now, or you can order a FREE DISK which takes about three weeks to get. I recommend doing that, its better all the way around unless you are like a total geek 🙂

And yes, you read correctly, the whole system is FREE!! And the help you get from the community is also FREE! No call costs for Tech support, there are so many folks over there who are so great at getting you exactly what you need for what ever problems or questions you have. Also, its great that when you post about Ubuntu, other users will find you and help as well.

greeting from a blogging ghost :-)

I know, been away…. but it was for a great cause!

I have been working my little typing fingers to the bone over at the other blog Jericho~On~CBS

* not a word press blog I am afraid*

I have been lucky enough to have been involved in the biggest internet movement for a television show in HISTORY!

Check out these sites for the dish, and if you are a fan who was unaware that CBS decided to cancel Jericho, please go the petition here, and sign it! The names as of now total 91,986 names. On May 16th we had 5949 names!

IN the space of just 14 days, there has been 158,000 pages of content made with the search terms “save jericho” in them! Every day that online total grows, and I have not even been tracking the other possible terms such as “CBS cancels Jericho” or “NUTS Campaign”

Don’t know about the NUTS campaign? Oh, that is something else, as of now the nut retailer Nutsonline has shipped 18,127 pounds of Nuts to CBS , and there are still 7678 pounds to get shipped! Check them out, its wild!

There have been thousands of calls logged into CBS phones, and just as many emails and letters from the fans who are upset over this move by CBS to show more reality down our throats.

Have you seen what they ( CBS) want to have us watch now? Kids Nation, go to the CBS website and check this show out, I cant see how they will get away with this thing, frankly sounds like child abuse to me.

The CBS forum for Jericho has been a hotbed of activity over the last 14 days, if you want to see what other fans are saying and doing then check out the CBS Jericho Boards.

I know some have been saying that we are getting a tab worked over wrought about the show, but honestly; it boils down to this-

Do you want the major networks to just keep cramming s**t down our throats, all the while making tons of money from advertising off of you watching habits? Do you not think it is time to end all the reality shows, * sorry to fans of AI, and DWTS – but I have had my fill and frankly they stink* and give us back come control in what we see. After all, Its my butt that pays 150.00 a month to even have access to CBS, ABS, NBC and the like.

CBS made some huge errors when taking into account who was watching, leaving out of the tally of viewers those who download the show on XBOX, and iTunes, as well as not counting those who used DVR, TiVo and the like.

Did you know that ratings are based on just a small fraction of Nielsen families who then in turn are said to represent you the viewer?

Go over to http://www.jericholives.com, and see all the information concerning this, and you will see that this is a large group of people who simply have had enough and want to take back control over what we see on our televisions.

Oh, and the stars of Jericho have left some really nice letters to us concerning our efforts, if you are a fan its so worth going on to the boards to see them.

I will be back later this evening with a video made of todays 10,000 shipment to CBS , it will be great 🙂

So, where have I been lately?

I have been waging war on the CBS Television Network.

Why would I be doing that ?

Because they (CBS) took a show away from me, and honestly it ticked me off.

What show, you ask ? Why Jericho, a show all about survival of a town after a nuc war is waged on the USA by internal terrorism ( or so it would seem, but we will never know, because CBS literally stopped the show mid scene, literally!)

The person you can thank most for this attack on a great show, is Ms Nina Tassler. More on my opinion of Ms Tassler’s ability to do her job on my other blog here.

Okay, so where have you been and what have you been doing?

I have been hanging my hat ( and writing ) at my “other” blog jerichooncbs.blogspot.com. I have written more news from there then I have ever done before in my life.

There are links about this war being waged by thousands of other Jericho Fans, a TON of info about the TONAGE of NUTS being sent to CBS.

Today alone CBS in NEW YORK got 1393 pounds of nuts today, and a youtube video is expected of the delivery sometime this evening, when it gets posted, I will surely let everyone know via here and here.There is another 4147 pounds of nuts ready to go for tomorrow.

Check out nutsonline.com for the scoop on tallys for purchased nuts and other info,

Tell me that you would not find this hilarious to see? I would have loved to have been a photog at this scene today.

Check out the playlist for the war effort on youtube here.

CBS , silly , silly CBS . No matter what, we win and you lose, and I am betting right now, that Ms Tassler at least get that.

So, for a few more days at least I will be more there than here, however I will be here with the good dish on how CBS is taking all these thousands of emails, faxes, phone calls, letters, NUTS and of course the now growing list of major newspapers reporting on our battle.

two more important links if you feel you would like to drop by and help out
