If you're a British Party of Five fan then you probably know by now the situation. If you don't check out the Channel 4 Forum. Basically, when season 4 was nearing its end C4 promised us that the new series of Party of Five be shown. The months passed and nothing came our way in the shape of a new series of our beloved programme. It wasn't until I checked the Forum site sometime in May that I found out Po5 had suposedly been axed. This is obviously a disaster but fair enough. The Big Wigs at C4 have obviously completely lost it and don't care at all about their loyal viewers. Except they are keeping their mouths firmly shut as to whether they actually do or do not have the series. Either that or giving out ridiculous replies like for example, Season 5 doesn't
exist, when we know that season 6 - maybe the last:( -
has just started filming. Not only that but C4 actually
offered us season 5 in a phone vote.....on Dawsons Creek
Day....then denied it all and said they were only
offering repeats. I have evidence. How could they offer to show a
programme they do not have or could not get the rights
If that wasn't
bad enough, three days after the fixed vote I received
this email from Channel 4 viewer enquiries:
Now we are back to "We have no plans to buy the rights at present" OR "We have no plans to buy the rights" (at all?).
There is only one way this is going to get sorted. We have to annoy Channel 4 as much as possable, by any means possible until we get a straight answer. This is the sort of fantastic quote that keeps us Po5 fans together.
"If CH4 think they can beat us into submission with silence I think they're 2 people short of a PARTY OF FIVE episode!!!" Spaceman.
