Enterprise Fan Money Refused
Paramount has declined to accept money raised by fans of the canceled Enterprise for purposes of continuing the show. The fan base – I mean “corporation” – has raised $3.14 million (!) in pledges and donations. (As a comparison, the Vice President of The CMT Dukes of Hazzard Institute would have to watch Dukes of Hazzard for 31.4 years! That’s a lot of Hogg!)
Does anyone else find this amazing? That people would pony up money for a TV show to continue shooting? That’s what commercials are for, right? I mean, I loved Firefly but I just don’t see myself paying a studio to produce it just so I can spend 20 hours a year in front the TV. Don’t get me wrong – I applaud the determination of these folks but I just can’t help thinking that the energy would be better spent on something more productive. Like installing a sprinkler system at my house.
