CINESCAPE POLL

CineScape Online has covered Crusade lately, and their latest magazine has info on the cancellation. They have now a poll which asks which genre TV show are you looking forward to most? Crusade currently leads, so if you have not doen so yet, go and choose Crusade.

Many people have asked wether the petitions run will help save Crusade. The answer is no, more is needed. We are working on a special save Crusade section for this site. The 2 things you can do now: write to TNT/SFC (use the addresses below) and spread the word about the June 9th marathon. If the ratings are good, Crusade can be saved.

CRUSADE/BABYLON & MARATHON

TNT, in a totally surprising act, will hold a Babylon 5/Crusade marathon on June 9th. Crusade's first episode, War Zone, premiers on June 9th (Wednesday) at 10PM ET/PT. Before it, at 8pm ET/PT, A Call to Arms will be re-aired. After War Zone, Thirspace will air at 11pm ET/PT. In the Beginning will be shown at 3AM on June 10 ET/PT. TNT will also show all of Babylon 5 starting March 15.

This shows that TNT likes Babylon 5. Airing A Call to Arms at 8 PM (which is a good air time) as a start for a Babylon 5 Marathon is also a good way for fans to support Crusade. If that Marathon gets good enough ratings (especially ACTA and War Zone), a second season for Crusade could happen.

Inorder to save the show, get anyone you can to see it. Tell fans about this. Post it on usenet and message boards. Spread the word.
