As all of you who watch this show know it’s on the bubble for renewed or cancelled and we all know renewal depends entirely on the good will of networks. We can’t just sit back and wait for NBC to renew it when the fans don’t do anything to help. Yes, I know we all talk about it, I know we tweet about it on Monday nights, but we can do better.
So in face of this new letter Eric Kripke posted, I decided to make this post and gather help. Last episode had HUGE drop from episode 10 and this is due to so many people thinking the season ended with the Winter finale. It wasn’t a normal drop from one episode to another, it was significant. I adore this show, it’s my favorite show right now and I’d be heartbroken to see it go.
1) Let’s try to make it trend next Monday. There’s a LOT of tweets during episodes, so why we never trend? Last Monday there was over 20k tweets, we can do better. Add #Timeless and #RenewTimeless to ALL your tweets. Try to post as often as you can during the episode and after. Tweet @NBCTimeless, @NBC and @Sony to let them know how you feel.
2) Tell your friends! Tell your family! Tell everyone you know to watch it. Make your own promotion. We all know the rating system SUCKS and only people with the Nielsen box counts, so lets make this show reach them! Even if you’re from outside the USA you still have friends from there, be it on twitter, facebook or here on tumblr. Get people to watch! We are the best marketing any show can have.
3) FOR THE LOVE OF GOD let people know season 1 ISN’T OVER. I have seen so many questions of when season 2 would start that I knew this episode would have a drop in ratings. Even people who watched the episode thought it was season 2! So let’s do what we can to let them know.
4) If you follow me and don’t watch the show, please give it a chance. It’s educational, it’s fun, it’s silly, it has so much diversity and so much respect for this diversity that it’d be a shame to see such a show off the air. YOU WILL NEVER SEE SO MUCH DIVERSITY DONE RIGHT IN ONE SHOW AGAIN. It’s something that you can watch with your family, that you can watch with your significant other, it’s a show you can watch with your kids, or jut watch alone and freak out over ships, over complex bad guys, over badass women that save Delta Force soldiers, over black guys defying historic racism, over intelligent girls that are treated as intelligent, about people driven by love for the ones they lost, it’s a show that in the end of the day is all about family.
5) PLEASE PLEASE WATCH TIMELESS!! If you can watch it live, please do it! If you can’t, DVR it, don’t leave it up to on demand, record it and watch it as many times as you can. These next 5 weeks are CRITICAL for the future of the show and we need to do something before it’s too late!
@lukegarrwoay, @alecmagnu & i decided to try and make #WeLoveYouIsaiah trend on Twitter this Friday (9th of December)! We will do it at the same time as the posters were announced, around 1pm PST! Isaiah needs to see how much we love him and that he has a lot of fans being “loyal” to him and that we know that he’s a main character!! so lets drown him in tweets and show him how much we love him!! reblog this please to signal boost it so we can get as many people to tweet as possible! we will keep tweeting as long as we want to so if you’d want to join in later that day, thats completely fine! :DD
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH AND I HOPE YOU’LL BE HELPING US SPREAD THE LOVE <33
running through a field of flowers, kissing under the moonlight, flying through the wind on a sunny day, odd looks, wearing beautiful dresses at a ball, cloud watching during the day and stargazing at night.
practicing combat together, holding each other on a balcony all night until sunrise, swearing oaths, a scribbled drawing of your loved one sleeping, feeling secure for the first time.
soft whispers in your ear, walking through a foreign city together, trying on new fashion trends, walking through the hallways like you own the place, doing each other's makeup at sleepovers.
braiding flowers into one another's hair, fiercely protecting what you're passionate about, walking through a forest together, going to an elegant party hand-in-hand.
jumping out of moving cars, stopping at your home for only hours at a time (and watering the plants), seeking adventure, cuddling each other for hours on end, running through a wild storm, taking risks.
holding hands in a big city, finding excuses to go to each other's workplace, escaping paparazzi, flirting with each other in the middle of meetings, going to each other's homes to watch movies and eat food, supporting each other.
sitting at the edge of a cliff together, being completely independent from one another but secretly being so dependent, judging others together, giving each other sly smiles, unleashing hell on anybody who hurts the her.
making each other coffee on sunday mornings, watching the sunrise together, working on cases together with ease, teasing each other, falling asleep on her chest, threatening anybody who might hurt her, wearing her shirt.
climbing to the top of the tallest tree in a forest, endlessly jabbing at each other, fleeting vulnerable moments, sacrifices, kissing with only candlelight.
baking cookies together in a cozy house, going to the farmer's market together, wearing floral dresses and button-ups, braiding each other's hair, basking in the sunlight.
encouraging each other to wear daring clothes, training together, undying support and devotion, walking through the hallways because you know you own the place, holding each other under silk sheets, sunlight streaming through stained glass windows.
doing pushups together, defending each other, kissing each other after a game won, swimming in a bright blue lake together and laughing, complimenting each other.
TIMELESS FANS AND SYMPATHIZERS, we’re on a mission to get this amazing show a second season. We need your help in this! The cast and crew can’t do it alone, they need our help. And us fans can’t do it alone either, we need your help.
It might feel like there’s not much we can do and that we have our hands tied behind our backs now, but we must at least try. If we don’t even try then there’s no way for things to change at all. So what are the small things we can do? Let’s show our love and support in social media. We already try to get the show trending on Monday nights when new episodes are airing, and that’s great, but how about we go one step further?
HERE’S THE PLAN:
CONTINUE MAKING IT TREND ON MONDAYS
This Monday, January 23rd, let’s make it trend! Let us make sure it trends. And every Monday after that as well. It’s not completely hopeless. Kripke said the remaining five weeks are going to be crucial in determining the future of the show, let us take that to our advantage. Once a networks decides to cancel a show, there’s no use in crying to them and begging them to “bring X back”, BY THEN IT’S TOO LATE. But we can use these five weeks to our advantage, five weeks is a considerable amount of time to make an change, LET’S DO IT.
For episode 1x12, let us not only tweet our thoughts with #Timeless, but also #RenewTimeless. DO NOT FORGET TO INCLUDE #RENEWTIMELESS!!!!!
Worried about time difference? WORRY NOT! Not every person can tweet with the Eastern/Pacific showings, and your support is just as important. Starting Monday, wherever you are in the world, TWEET ABOUT TIMELESS, TWEET YOUR FEELS, TWEET YOUR SUPPORT, TWEET ABOUT HOW EXCITED YOU ARE FOR THE EPISODE. Just tweet. I’ve spoken with someone who understands a bit about twitter traffic and analytics and they say sometimes it’s even better when something is being constantly mentioned, so if we spend the entire Monday talking about it, chances are when the episode actually airs it’s going to exponentially increase its chances for trending with a significant number of mentions. Just tweet it whatever time you can. Tweet during your lunch break, tweet when you wake up, when you’re about to go to sleep, when you’re on the bus, or while you’re walking to class, just tweet it. Don’t be shy.
Tweet at @NBC @sony @nbctimeless
Also tweet at the writers, producers, cast and crew so they can also spread the word and see the support they have!
Let’s do this every single Monday from here on out! Let’s try to turn the tables!! LET’S TRY TO BRING THE RATINGS UP!
We could also try and go the extra mile and make it trend on another particular date and time of our choosing, NOT ONLY WHEN IT’S AIRING ON MONDAY. Maybe we could try and do that one of these weekends? This is something a lot of people would have to agree upon and we have to organize it in such a manner that everyone is contributing on said occasion. It can’t be spur of the moment thing with only 10 or so people trying to get it to trend. It has to be organized and collaborative. We could set a tentative date for it and then come up with an actual one that would work for everybody.
Don’t watch Timeless yet? Refer to this post and check out why you should!
Haven’t started Timeless yet but want to give it a chance? PLEASE HELP US TOO! You don’t know it now but if you go back and watch this show after s1 is over and there’s no s2 for you to watch after, you’re gonna regret it. Please help us in our endeavor!!
Watch Timeless and want a s2 too, but don’t understand what all the fuss is about? Refer to this, Kripke, Timeless’ Executive Producer HIMSELF is asking us to do something about it. It doesn’t get any realer than this.
Even if you don’t exactly know what’s going on, WE IMPLORE YOU TO HELP. TWEET EVEN IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT TWEET MEANS. IT’S GONNA MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
So, in conclusion, let’s try our best and do every thing we can think of that might change the perspective of a s2 for us
WATCH IT LIVE IF YOU CAN, DVR IT, WATCH IT IN YOUR DVR WITHIN ONE WEEK OF THE EPISODE, REWATCH IT, STREAM IT ON THE NBC WEBSITE AND/OR APP, PURCHASE IT ON AMAZON, VUDU, APPLE, BUY A SEASON PASS, BY A SINGLE EPISODE, AND SPREAD THE WORD SO OTHERS CAN DO THE SAME!
#TIMELESS + #RENEWTIMELESS @nbc @nbctimeless @sony ALL DAY MONDAYS JANUARY 23 AND 30 + FEBRUARY 6, 13, AND 20! LET’S DO THIS GUYS. WE CAN DO THIS, THERE IS STILL TIME.
Fans are trying to trend #ThankYouHarryAndMatt on Twitter right now! Send them some love, guys! Regardless of where you stand on recent debate in the fandom, these two deserve our support for all of their hard work and dedication!
