An Important Announcement About The Future of THE GAME OVERTHINKER

Many of you have probably heard the news over the last few days that Blip has been culling series from the network. A lot of shows, some long-running and fairly popular, have been getting the hammer for a variety of reasons, and I just a few hours ago learned that unfortunately ADVENTURES OF THE GAME OVERTHINKER will be one of them as of July.

Obviously, I'm unhappy about this. Before anyone asks, no, Blip has not been forthcoming at this time about the exact reason for removals and this series has been no exception. The general sense is that Blip is looking concentrate on the most profitable and entrenched brands as opposed to growing series like this, and that's understandable from their perspective even if it's a bother from mine.

I've been contacted (privately) by a few parties so far interested in possibly helping the series find a new regular home; but at this time no decision has been made and I'm exploring all options. What this will not do is effect plans and scheduling for the actual release of episodes so far as I am able. EPISODE 93 is 98% completed and should be ready for Friday or Saturday. My plan, for now, is continue uploading to the Blip Channel until they shut down my ability to do so but also to simultaneously upload to YouTube. After that... your guess is as good as mine.

I want to thank everyone who has supported this series over the years, and reaffirm my commitment to continue this series. This particular show is 100% a labor of love for me, and whatever happens to it going forward the one thing I can assure everyone of is that I will not be doing anything that will compromise the form I want the series to take. Please stay tuned to The OverThinker Blog for further updates and details.

I appreciate the ongoing support, and I hope everyone enjoys our upcoming shows - no matter which video-player they wind up being delivered on :)

P.S. If you'd like to help the series, the best help we can get is for you to spend some times re-watching and sharing the still-monetized Blip-hosted episodes of the show HERE.
