Starting this week, we will be sharing with all new and old fans of the Pretender, our fondest memories of each TV episode (for those who are just arriving, the Pretender ran on NBC and later on TNT, from 1996 to 2001 and we had the time of our lives) and we will begin from the beginning – the Pilot.
There is going to be a few trips down memory lane as we explore the episodes in our own way and an even bigger trip as we share unseen behind the scenes photos and memorabilia with Pretender fans. The pictures on the Vault will be available to thepretenderlives.com registered users only, so register today and don’t miss anything!
The Pretender vault and the Episode Guides will both be updated each week. We promise!
Do you dare open the Pretender vault?
Who’s team will you be playing for? Good or evil? Jarod or the Centre?
Pick your side, follow Jarod or characters from the Centre, and voice your opinions on each article based on each team you’re playing for. If you are a Pretender fan and you end any scenario in the top 5, you can win a Pretender t-shirt!
To start playing, just go to mediawars.co and register for a free account. You can pick whatever nickname you’d like, no need to be associated with the Pretender.
To join one of the teams, you need to follow the characters of the side you’ll be playing for (the Centre or Jarod) and pay attention to their comments, messages and Buzzes. This will give you insider knowledge that will help you get ahead in the game – Team Jarod will tip you off on the “good” agenda, while Team Centre will tip you off on the “bad” agenda.
The Teams and Who to Follow
The Centre (The-Centre.co) players, aka “the bad guys” need to be the leaders on each argument. Follow each player and send them private messages, so they can fill you in. Don’t forget, any info from these players is “For Centre Use Only!”
Jarod needs to be leading the arguments on each scenarios. Will you follow him and message him for more insights?

Due to routine upgrades from the tech department, there will be some downtime on the Centre Mainframe at www.thepretenderlives.com at 11pm PST. SIS has reported no breech in security and Mr Broots is working hard to run the maintenance sweep as efficiently as possible.
Our fans are the greatest. We’ve been receiving submissions to be featured on our “A Thousand Friendships” section and we love them!
We have updated the webpage with stories from Miss Parker (the one and only!), Vania, Mallory and Pedro. We invite you all to go check them out and send in your own Pretender friendship stories. We are amazed with the amount of worldwide friendships that the Pretender has made possible throughout the years and we thank you for sharing that gift with us.
