I got an odd email this morning.
I just found your blog entry: http://www.the-medium-is-not-enough.com/2006/06/the_end_of_the_finale_guides.php and I think you may be of some help to me. I’m contacting you on behalf of M80 & Fox Home Entertainment regarding tthe DVD release of The Pretender Season 4.
Since you mentioned Medium in your blog entry, I thought that you may be interested in helping to promote this release.
The Pretender Season 4 is being released to DVD on July 18th.
If you are interested, please email me back and I’ll get you the details.
So what, exactly, is the link between The Pretender (fine series though it was, til the silly fourth season) and Medium. They’re both NBC shows I guess, but is there much of a demographic overlap between a 1996 show about a genius who could pretend to be anyone he wanted, running away from an evil organisation called The Centre, and a 2005 show about a woman who helps a US district attorney by talking to dead people?
More worryingly, what exactly does Jacqueline want me to do to promote it, I wonder? It’s a US release, after all. Was my printing this letter the plan? I’m not sure I want to know, lest my editorial independence be compromised.
