As one who is very cynical of television networks, I’m inclined to believe this is a BRILLIANT idea.
Die-hard Whedonites are rallying to save Dollhouse, the sci-fi drama about a group of high-tech killer assassins — eight months before the show even hits the airwaves. Fearing Dollhouse will get booted off the air, just like the Joss Whedon-helmed show Firefly, fans are plotting and organizing their efforts in online forums. […] DollhouseForums’ trailblazing leader Nathan posted the following as a call to arms: “After seeing some of my favorite television shows get canceled in the past — as well as the ‘save this show’ campaigns that followed — I had the idea that a fan campaign BEFORE the show begins may be the best thing to do.”
Can’t say as I blame him. If the show stinks, though, he might look silly.
