seriously? CBS has no right to control their property because there is proof that people like it? I really hope that the only forum they hang out on is the Phase II one - because stuff like that is what is going to cause that other shoe to drop.
But, you know what, I don't want to say you are completely wrong with your theory....so why don't you do a Kickstarter and start making your own episodes of "The Big Bang Theory" and put them on the web. Let's see how that goes for you....
Yeah, I sort of have to agree. It's their property, they can do whatever they want or not want with it. I'm all for fan productions, but let's not fall into the trap of thinking fans' desire > intellectual property owner rights.
I think, and I could be wrong, a lot of this crowd-funding is flying under the radar cause CBS isn't interested--at the moment--in exploiting the original timeline in a meaningful way. Let them get a project going, and I'd wager that'd change in short order.
