I'm almost entirely certain I've never signed a petition before to try and 'save' a television show. If I hadn't read a few articles on just how much power fans can have if they band together, I wouldn't bother. And in a delightfully cynical view, I don't think Alcatraz will be saved. FOX won't change their mind. I don't think another network will pick it up. All questions will be left unanswered.
There's a spark of hope. I keep reading Tweets and messages on GetGlue about people who are pissed off that the show got cut off at the knees. Sparks of hope can be dangerous and I have this weird, bad track record of getting my hopes up on the most random of things only to have them dashed. I guess I just want some sort of closure here. I found myself way more invested in this show than I would've thought possible. A miniseries, to answer some questions? Does that sound like too much to ask? I don't know. But if ever you watched a television show, any show, and you really felt caught up in it...? Take the time to help a few of us bewildered fans find a way to get the word out that we're here and we want something to happen.
