Though a show isn't currently in production doesn't mean it never would be again. As of now, it's not in active production at this time.

Default The Broken

Let's say, theoretically, we brought it back. What would you have us do with it? Where could we take it?

That's a good point. I loved the show, but there's not a lot you could do... maybe a monthly show, sticking to the "hack n mod" nature of the show.

the fact is, it's a show that is telling people how to circumvent the law. not really an ok thing to do with a real company now.

shame.

While it's understandable that a legitimate business may be concerned a show such as "thebroken" could deter ad revenue by alienating potential clients. It's important to remember that revision3 targets the niche market.

Many people are interested in network and computer security. It would be possible to keep the general theme, but expand upon it. The expansion would entail the computer security industry as a whole. The show could do anything from security related news, to example modifications.

Jim, simply all you need to do is make sure that it is fun and involves a bit of hackadackery whilst still being relevant. Also go back to basics, keeping some of the old favourites (like Hacking with Ramzi and the theme music and segment introductions) basically, make it a combination of the original thebroken, Kevin's Dark Tips from TSS and the earlier episodes of Systm. You can be as borderline legal as you want as you want, just don't hop over the border like certain Mexican's do.

On the subject of sponsorship, couldn't this show be in part funded by membership fees? I would definitely become a member if it helped fund the show, but I wouldn't want the pleasure of getting it earlier than everyone else because it would it just isn't fair.

Other than that, I can't think of anything else at the moment. But I am sure I'll think of something, when I do, I'll send you a message.

I loved thebroken when it was out and even now I sometimes will go back and watch old episodes. I know that this show might give you a bad reputation agetting companies to sponsor it might be hard but I say, bring it back maybe monthly, maybe even every two months if monthly is too much of a hassle, and while its going on, don't advertise it and just don't put it on the front page so only people that now about it now (and reads these forums i shiuld say) can watch it. as funding goes I think it should be funded by memberships because I wouldn't think many companies would support a borderline illegal show.

The days of thebroken are pretty much over.

Social networking? Unethical - not something you really want to associate with at a corporate level.
War driving? This is 2008, not 2005 ...

So what could you do? Things that don't directly fit systm. Consider it as systm++ for more advanced hacks (hardware and software). Turn it into a white hat (ethical hacking) show ... penn testing, vta testing, WEP/WPA cracking, password retrieval, bluetooth snarfing, etc. All perfectly legal (with consent), but with a hint of "bad boy" that would appeal.

I would say the show could be monthly or even every 3 months as a test. The show does not have to have extreme hacking. But like the cool dark tips and cool be sketchy type of content. But the show could have some humor or something, that would be cool. It would be nice to have a show build on real tech stuff like thebroken was. The show could even have cool and interesting security tips and OS tweaks. Anything should be possible on thebroken, imho. But different guests could be used on all the shows. You could even have fans submit videos of hacks or things of that nature to blend in the video. Just make the show with loose guides, except keep it borderline legal or better. Not all hacking is illegal.
