Good-bye to a Fallen Ranger
Passed Away on 12/6/12
When I got involved with Jericho back in 2007 I never thought that I would meet anyone face to face. The old CBS Board days are now 6 years behind us but along the way I had the pleasure of meeting some of the folks who posted there and on the UHD Board.
One of those Rangers was Lee Frazier, a kind soft spoken man from North Carolina.
I met him at the Ranger gathering in Baltimore in 2009 and again in Boston, MA in 2010. We spoke on the phone or by email on a regular basis. At the Boston gathering they held a mini auction of Jericho items. Lee used the proceeds to make a donation to an organization that helped blind and deaf individuals get out of the house so they could have a better quality of life.
He was a true Ranger and a gentle spirit. He was a real cheerleader for Jericho and was a friend to many in the Jericho Community.
His signature line was Sempe Fi which is short for Semper Fidelis-always faithful. The creed of the US Marine Corps. It fit Lee and his passion for Jericho and his many friends he met through Jericho.
I feel blessed that I had the opportunity to meet Lee. I will miss my friend. May he rest in Peace.
We wanted to pay tribute to Lee, by reprinting his letter that appeared in Issue #3 of the Jericho Season 3 comic:
When asked by someone what I am passionate about . . . I say that I am passionate about my faith, my family AND Jericho - that usually starts a conversation. Never before has a show touched me as JERICHO has . . . and probably will never again. The passion continues with the comic. When I read it I can actually visualize this happening on TV - the continuation of the story gives me more joy than many of you will ever know. The guys on the boards are always teasing me when I say this, but I will say it again - I love you guys ALL OF YOU; I really do. As Always - Semper Fi Lee
If you wish to leave a comment about Lee, please go here and sign the guestbook.
We loved you too Lee! Semper Fi
Operation Netflix Update
In January, we heard that Netflix was talking to Jon Turteltaub's agent about Jericho. Last month, there was a tiny reference to CBS talking to Netflix about making a new series. This kind of reference was also made last February.
As far as we can tell, Netflix is still interested in Jericho and CBS is talking to them.
The news from Amazon (Netflix's top competitor) is even more interesting. Amazon has ordered a pilot based on the movie "Zoombieland", is now streaming the 29 episodes of Jericho, and will be reairing the episodes of CBS' "Under the Dome" (the limited series based upon Stephen King's story of the same name) four days after they air this summer on CBS.
There is certainly a lot of interest in Jericho and post-apoclayptic media!!!!
