Moonlight - Beth
obsessed fangirl [uhb-sest fan-gurl] noun. Someone who actually calls the CW to leave a message on their comment line begging them to pick up Moonlight now that CBS has foolishly cancelled it.

This was totally not me, by the way. It was, um, one of my friends who did this. Yeah.

(It's a sobering moment when you realize that you honestly don't care whether you ever own S2 of Heroes on DVD...but you tell multiple people that TPTB had damn well better put out DVDs for the sadly-abbreviated single season of Moonlight.  Dammit, the show was supposed to suck.  Instead, it was one of the best things about this TV season.  I blame Jason Dohring.)

(ETA: Also?  When did I become a new-school Doctor Who fan???  I totally blame Catherine Tate.  This world has become utterly and completely crazy...) 

(ETA2: This Sunday, Adult Swim is airing both the Robot Chicken Star Wars special - which I have not yet seen - and the Family Guy Star Wars special - which I've seen at least a half-dozen times and never tire of watching!!!!!!!!11!!!1!!!  O, my cup runneth over.  You wanna see someone geek out?  Maybe I'll try to record my face when the Fourth Doctor appears at the moment when the Millenium Falcon jumps into hyperspace.  Seriously.  Geek-out, every time.)

 (ETA3: OK, I realize I need to stop editing this post, but I didn't want to make multiple posts for silly little things.  Neil Gaiman has even commented in his blog about the BBC going after some poor fan who made Doctor Who knitting patterns.  Apparently, someone else was selling the end product on eBay...which, of course, means that logically the best course of action is to go after the fan who had no idea they were doing this.  Gaaaaaaaaah.)

I KNOW. Alex seemed like such a nice guy anyway, and his bittersweet Myspace posting confirmed it for me.

I had tried to stay out of behind-the-scenes info about the show during the season because I didn't want to accidentally get spoiled, but I've been told by other fans that CBS had given the producers such a strong impression that the show was going to be renewed, that they'd told the actors not to look for other work because they were going to be busy with Moonlight. Which, you can't depend on being renewed till the network officially renews you...but it's still got to make the shock even worse for the actors.
