Fans Do Not Accept Permanent Blackout

I love the Flashforward television series and I was disappointed when it got canned. The “series finale” episode was a terrible cliffhanger to top it all of! Despite all that, I thought, “well, a lot of good shoes get cancelled these days, what can I do about it?”

Turned out, not all of the fans are as much of a passive viewer as I am. Yesterday, Flashfoward star, John Cho’s twitter lead me to this link to a Variety article… which lead me to this website.

Fans at different cities are actively finding creative ways to save the show… this is not a simple online petition, you guys! They don’t just encourage you to send a letter to ABC, but you can participate in a “global” blackout with other people. On June 10th, fans are going to gather infront of a ABC network building and “blackout” for 2 minutes and 17 seconds, replicating the television series. It is a flash mob at its finest, if you ask me.

This idea got me so incredibly excited. It is so simple and brilliant!

For those who do not have a blackout event at their cities, they are encouraged to film their own flashforward that will be gathered in a website mosaic, very much like what the characters created in the tv show.

I am always so amazed by passionate fans– and lets face it, only the geeks will go this far in protesting a cancellation of a beloved show. I am hoping the movement will be heard and that the network will reconsider. It would be nice to get past that crazy cliffhanger and find out what happens!
