Not that you would have noticed, as I am the only person in the world who watches jPod (downloaded the night it airs), I am proud to report that Carol Jarlewski is making pavlova next Sunday to thank Kam Fong for burying Dwight’s corpse and not telling Jim.

Pavlova – food of the gods.  And also a New Zealand creation (don’t let the Aussies tell you otherwise).

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but CBC is cutting JPod

So, any jobs for hydrogeologists down in Kiwi-land?

Dear Friends,

Hi all, Raugi Yu here. I play Kam Fong on jPod. Okay, so you have heard that jPod has not been picked up for a second season by CBC. I got the call a couple of days about it.

At first I was upset and disappointed and immediately thought of the great times and experiences I had shooting jPod and how much I would take from that…There was one problem though…I kept wondering why. Why not have a season 2? I started to hear what others were saying. I heard anger, resentment and frustration. So many of you my friends along with thousands, yes thousands, of strangers have expressed outrage over the cancellation of jPod.

I got angry too.

One may think that, “Sure, I’d be angry too if I lost a steady gig like that”. Well that’s not what I’m angry about. Gigs come and go. It is no huge hardship for me to go back to auditioning and booking and living my life as an actor. It is my passion. No. It angers me that the CBC our nation’s television station (yes I know among other things) chooses to cancel a show that is so cutting edge, fun, smart and CANADIAN. So many viewers have gleaned joy from watching jPod week after week. We look forward to it; I dare say we yearn for it.

I’d like to go down swinging. Many of you, who know me well, know that I am quite a loner and I don’t ask for help often even when I need it. I guess I‘m asking now.

I’m a pretty chilled out go with the flow kind of guy, but I recognize that there are times in my life when I’ve got to fight. In surveying the land I recognize that I need a lot of help.

If you feel you can, please call CBC at: 1-866-306-4636, choose option 1 for English programming and choose option 1 again for the “Attendant” then ask for “Audience Services”. Audience Services will answer and at that point tell them how you feel about jPod being cancelled and how you would like to see a season 2.

OR
E-mail them at http://www.cbc.ca/contact/

I alone can reach out to all of you and if all of you can reach even 2 people and we get that people ball rolling…we could possibly be jamming up some phone lines at CBC. Am I being naïve and hopeful? I hope so; it feels better than lying down and taking it.

Thanks everyone! I really appreciate all of you for watching the show and for all the great things you’ve all been saying about it.

Longevity and persistence is the key. Phone or e-mail, if you can do it everyday.

I send my love to you all and just to be clear, that love stays whether you phone, e-mail, write or not.

Thank you all!
Raugi Yu
A.K.A Kam Fong

Hey Joe…if you’re calling the CBC anyways, could you ask them when they’re bringing back Dr. Who for me?? They never answered our last email, and I’m dying to see Series 4 without having to download from the BBC

And yet another twist to the CBC show cancellations: http://www.globesports.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20080310.wsptleafstv10/GSStory/GlobeSportsHockey/home

It’s one thing to be upset at the Leafs for not getting to the playoffs, but blaming, even if only partly, the Leafs for CBC’s economic woes… c’mon, surely the Leafs can’t be blamed for everything going wrong in and around Torontonia, huh?

You’d think the CBC would’ve presumed this time around a non-Leafs playoff run this year when budgeting for shows. I’m hard-pressed to blame the Leafs on this one for now until proven otherwise.
