If you’re the type of person who enjoys receiving mysterious and interesting packages on a semi-regular basis. Well then running a television web site is the job for you.
Take this morning for instance. When the phone rang between 11 and 12 A, I couldn’t help but smile. Because odds were good that the voice on the other end of the line was going to utter my two favorite words, “FedEX Delivery!”
Two weeks ago, I received a nondescript plain white envelope containing a simple note and a key. [see below photo]
For days, I lay awake at night wondering what this key opened [Clearly I need a life!] A Car?! A Safety Deposit Box?! My imagination ran wild!
This morning, the answer came in the form of a metallic silver lock box.
After spending three hours sifting through my incredibly messy office for the key that was mailed to me two weeks ago, I finally was able to open it. Inside was a clear USB drive containing some really cool TERMINATOR Video Clips and a DVD screener of the first two episodes of TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES.
I’ll say this for FOX — they really know how to do the TV Screener right. And more importantly, they seem to be marketing the TERMINATOR franchise to perfection. Here’s hoping they give it more of a chance than they did with DRIVE, WONDERFALLS and REUNION. I have a sneaky suspicion they will.
Check back next week for my first look on the new series. Yes, you heard me correctly — I’ll Be Back.
