Later this week, Jemma fans from all over the world will be granted access to Jemma clips on the official Hand aufs Herz website for four weeks. And hopefully, that’s just the beginning!
Remember last week, when I told you that the fine folks over at ProSiebenSat1 are so excited by the international response to Jemma that they are willing to work hard and try their best to come up with a solution so that international Jemma fans don’t have to suffer from Jemma withdrawal for too long?
Well, guess what: They did it, and I think that you’ll love what they came up with.
As it turns out, the video of Kasia and Lucy thanking their international fans and the “Best of Jemma” clip weren’t the solution, like some of you feared, but exactly what they promised it would be: appetizers to make the wait a little easier for you.
Later this week – but not before Friday – Jenny & Emma will get their own little corner on the official Hand aufs Herz website. There will be lots and lots of Jemma clips posted there, and for the following four weeks (and, depending on how it all works out, hopefully also after that) they won’t be “geoblocked”, which means that Jemma fans from all over the world will be able to watch them.
But wait, there’s more: They will also be able to watch preview clips for upcoming episodes AND the entire episodes that aired on TV within the last seven days!
The clips and episodes will be “as is”, which means there are no subtitles. But that hasn’t stopped you before, has it?
The videos will be available worldwide for a four-week testing phase. Whether this will become a permanent solution in part depends on the viewers’ response, and also if and how many clips turn up on YouTube. So if you want to support the show, the production team and all of the efforts they’re making, you should make sure to watch the clips on the official website and tell the folks on YT who post clips from the website that they’re spoiling it for the rest of you.
I think that this is a huge step they are taking in support of the fandom, and as far as I know, it’s unique that a big media company is willing to go to such great lengths for a storyline that isn’t even the main love story on the show, not to mention that it’s a lesbian (!) love story. So thank you to ProSiebenSat1 and everyone involved for listening to the united voices of Jemma fans and making this beautiful storyline available for the rest of the world as well.
“Honey, did you hear that, we’re going global!”
“Yep, I did, but now let’s continue to make out before Bodo shows up.”
