Bring back Da Vinci, on air or online

Sorry to hear about the cancellation of Da Vinci. It remains the best drama on TV (not best Canadian drama, just best drama, period).

As a bit of informal market research/suggestions:

  1. If you can bring all the seasons to DVD, I'll buy every one.
  2. If you make future TV movies or other Da Vinci shows, please make them available on DVD, and maybe on the iTunes Store, too. I'll buy 'em.
  3. Obviously, if CTV or another network were interested in taking over broadcast of the show, I'd be all over it.
  4. More radically, if you could make NEW episodes, even half-hour or 22-minute ones, and put them up for sale on iTunes for their standard $2 or something, I'd buy every one. Heck, I'd subscribe if there was a way to do that.

TV isn't the only way to get new shows out there anymore. I don't know what an episode costs to produce, but if you had a few hundred thousand people around the world paying $2 for each one, it might work. Perhaps it's worth thinking about, anyway.

Thanks for such a great show.

It can't hurt to try.
