The Jessica Leccia/Nadia Bjorlin interview was fantastic! They are absolutely adorable together, and I love them as Lani. Hope to see more interviews with these two in the near future!

I would have loved to have seen the JL/NB interview but I have decided that I will not be paying for what are basically marketing materials. Asking people to pay for Venice itself or even the merchandise is one thing. Asking people to pay for an interview? If I chose to pay for these interviews, all of them together would cost more than the show itself. It feels like Venice is taking advantage of the fans. They saw a demand for these interviews, especially the JL/NB interview and decided to try to make some money off of them. After having purchased three seasons, paying extra for season three, buying merch and dvd’s, I have to draw the line. Thanks anyway.

You want me to pay for an interview? The well of both money and goodwill has run dry and Venice is not getting one more cent from me.

X2 The only “marketing” strategy Team Venice seems to have is to bilk more and more money out of fans. I thought the whole point of interviews was promotion. FAIL.

Is there something special that needs to be done to open the download. I’ve made 4 attempts with one more allowable. The default file is movie maker and a message pops up saying the file is not supported. I figure it should be easier than this to access.

Would never pay for an interview. This is really a cheap way for the Venice team to earn money.

Can you put Jessica Leccia & Nadia Bjorlin plus Christian LeBlanc Video Interviews back up? Not available. Ive been checking back for months.

Sorry, this is pure greed. We have to pay to watch the series – which is ok with me, but interviews to promote the series – should be free. After all, if the interviews are interesting, I just might purchase a subscription for Season 4.
