Unexpected development, folks.
I wasn't expecting this to emerge, but the other day in my usual searches I found that I had received a response from Fresh TV on one of their pages. I've been telling those folks regularly about fanbase disappointment over Total Drama All-Stars and the lingering hate for the previous seasons and the things they've done, be it character derailment, your choice of any one of those lousy finales, the lameness of the challenges, the abandoning of any meaningful character development, the screen hogs, Feral Zeke, the worsening and nonsensical cruelty on the series, massive continuity issues as seen in TDAS, and the overall crapsack writing. Of course, I've been keeping it civil, but blunt. I know how mad people have been over the series and I've been trying to make that known to them.
So yesterday I found I did get a reply to some of my most recent posts there. This is what they shot to me:
"We've received a lot of feedback. If you'd like to positively contribute you can send suggestions to email@example.com."
We get the message. You're not happy. We've solicited feedback from fans and are addressing their concerns."
I swear to God, this is authentic. I had no idea I would get a reply at all from them.
Personally, I have no idea what to make of it, but on the upside, it seems I did get their attention with some of the comments I made. Even if it may only be briefly. But even at that, I'm quite amazed I got a response at all.
I would suggest fans keep leaving feedback at the email suggested, even though a lot of us are probably familiar with that link already. Keep up the pressure folks, we're not a non-factor in trying to get this formerly-great show back on track. That's all I have to say for now.
