Sony has launched a little video network on Myspace--they're calling it the Minisode Network. They condense classic Sony TV shows down to a five minute episode. There are 3 PF minisodes on there, all from Season One, I think. Can a fee-based (and/or advertising supported) Sony Internet TV channel be far behind? That would let them sell their product straight to the viewers without having to sell these old shows to affiliates, and would give them the advertising revenue that normally goes to stations. One day... :wink:

Thanks, PJ. Smile

I watched the 3 minisodes, 2 of which had the songs edited out. What's the PF without the music? It's like chocolate chip cookies without the chips. I don't know what Sony's thinking.

Hey, guys: Very Happy

I'm ALL FOR ANYTHING that will get TPF out there among the masses, as it were. Perhaps if ENOUGH "viewers" enjoy these little "minisodes" of our favorite series, they'll actually PURCHASE S1 and S2, leading up to the eventual release of S3!! I know it's a long-shot, but we must REMAIN HOPEFUL, people!! Laughing Wink

way cool, at least it's a start, maybe they'll show full episodes later, and go beyond season one and two.
