 Frustrated tP Fans - Campaign TPM » Please give Pretender Fans a Harpo Hookup!
There are Pretender fans all over the world and we all want the same thing, either a movie, a miniseries or a feature film, basically anything that gives us more of the series and answers to all the mysteries…or at least some of them.
Since airing the final Pretender movie in 2001, TNT (Turner Network Television) has consistently ignored the pleas of fans, although they have kept the show’s reruns on their line-up, for which we are grateful.
This situation for Pretender fans is like having a book series (that you’ve been reading for years as each book comes out) where that last book that ties up all the loose ends and answers all the mysterious questions is never published and you have no idea how it ends.

But "The Pretender" is a song about why even that won't work, in the long run.
