In response to Bonnie Hammer's comments about Sci Fi wanting to attract more female viewers, the women of the SaveFarscape.com's forums
have come with a way to show their "support" for Farscape.
The idea is still in the making, and you can give your thoughts in this thread
. The basic plan is as follows: What:
Bra, any Bra. Can be used, but must be clean On the bra write "We Send Our SUPPORT For Farscape!" and whatever else cheeky you can come up with How about demographics? Oh, and please use either wireless bras or remove the wires before mailing... I dont know, but wireless bra sounds somehow all wrong to me... anyway, uisceboo pointed out that those wires could be a major problem for post-room people. When:
So it gets to SciFi HQ in NYC on the 21st of March, the day 4.22 airs. (check here for how long it takes from where you live: http://postcalc.usps.gov/
the post-code in NYC is 10020) Where:
Ms Bonnie Hammer, to make sure she gets a good and lasting visual impression of the fact that women in fact are watching Farscape (and with a passion!)
THE SCI FI CHANNEL
1230 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10020 How:
Put in clear PLASTIC bag, so it's obvious that this is not related to any terrorist-activity (... uhm, well, you know what I mean ). Also put a sticker with "Watch Farscape SciFi Channel Fri 8pm" on the outside. We wanna keep our postoffice employees up to date. It would also be a fabulous gesture if you could use USPS's Breast Cancer Awareness
In addition to writing letters to Ms. Hammer (at the above address), from last Monday's SaveFarscape.com
