NBC will be airing a new Thursday series called FEAR ITSELF, which is a bunch of directors from slasher films getting airtime (and funding) to show
horribly graphic and highly inappropriate visual violence on public television. I am completely appalled and plan to start a letter campaign to stop it.
However, on the other end of the spectrum is Super Pal Universe, 5 kids and one woman (me) dedicated to bringing fun, music, camaraderie, intelligence
and the social action of teens…so kids watching can make a difference by learning about their community, getting involved in their community, and creating
change in their community: act, react and interact!
The way I see it, if I had the funding, Super Pal Universe would be bringing positive options and thought filled, educational and entertaining tv/webisodes to
children through our show rather than more absolutely derivative and negative dreck.
Big thumbs down to NBC on their cashing in on making a profit instead of setting the standard for excellence. I guess that is up to me and Super Pal Universe
(and those out in the world who continue to try and make the world incredible, even without huge budgets or backing.) We will not cave in.
