    File downloaded via iTunes on the first try, but it seemed like I’m back to the days of 56kbs rather than broadband.
    But who’s in a rush when it comes to good content.

  2. I thought I heard unsubscribing and resubscribing was the ticket. Tried that, and my download time increased!

    I don’t mind, I truly love the show, but this is a bit annoying.

  3. Excellent interview with Falls.
    I’m trying my best to remember to support the writers in their endeavor for a livelihood, however with the now dwindling amount of new media on the horizon, I’m having difficulty.
    I’ve sent my rice to NBC, but I’ve come to fear that Falls’ prediction is correct and that Journeyman will become another short-lived cult classic like Firefly.

    Death to Nielsen!

  4. I couldn’t download the podcast but streamed it on Saturday. I got a message about the farpoint server being busy or down. Such a great interview. Thank you all for making it happen.

    I think Kevin’s right that the fans need to do something big for PR. And also remember sending in something to the network has the most impact.

  5. A lot of Journeyman fans have joined Hey! Nielson, Nielson’s online community to tell Nielson that they got it wrong on Journeyman. Journeyman currently ranks #2 over there. http://www.heynielsen.com/view/journeyman/

  6. Thomas from Flag says:

    The best way to reach them is email them about downloaded issues, they will see them from the comments thread, but it can take longer.

  7. I got your back Summer. I love Psych.

  8. I put in my two cents and added my vote on the Nielson link above. You have to subscribe, but I figure that we’ll be hitting this site allot so may as well get our accounts set up now. ;-)
    If we can get the #1 spot, I’ll do a mention on the show this week.
