OnTheBubblepodcast.com 

In this episode we explore the fan-grievances-campaign that caused a change in writing and execution from the showrunners of FOX's Sleepy Hollow. 

V.H. (SpoilerTV) - Quote. “Sleepy Hollow is a smart, well-written & acted show that is entertaining, exciting & emotionally affecting.” Unquote. 

J.W. (Spoiler TV) - Quote. “Sleepy Hollow is a great show with a cast that has great chemistry. Reverting back to what worked in season 1 will bring the fans back, the last episodes & upcoming ones proves that.” Unquote.

R.G.R (Rotten Tomatoes) - Quote. “ Thank you so much, Fox! Just thank you so much for interfering with a once bonkers show by turning it into boring formulaic stuff. Absolutely poor decision on your end and this season which held great promise, turned into a snooze fest on most of its episodes. Because when it was great, it was spectacular and hilarious. When it wasn't... it was below average. Not even sure we're getting a third season to correct this, because that last episode sure felt like a goodbye and a damn fine goodbye at that. Oh well, still hoping for a second chance...” Unquote. 

By A Prayer (iTunes US Store)
Sleepy Hollow S2 was Quote. “ALL OVER THE PLACE” Unquote . 

Me Name Here (iTunes US Store)
Quote. “Loved the first season and a half, but not buying the sudden change of tempo of the way the characters are getting altered. Unquote.

In this episode we break down the recent #Save99 #Renew99 fan campaign to saved Brooklyn Nine Nine for a 6th season.

After being cancelled by FOXTV on May 10th, a massive online campaign fired-up and flooded influential channels such as Twitter with countless messages of support for a renewal. Those messages weren't just coming from fans, but were also being sent by popular comedians, actors, directors and more.
