"Veronica Mars" Fans Plan to Blanket CW in Marshmallows to Save Series

Spurred by the recent success of the fan-based campaign to save cancelled CBS series Jericho, fans of the CW's axed Veronica Mars have organized their own attempt to resurrect their beloved heroine from cancellation.

Fans of the crime-fighting college student launched Save Veronica Mars: The Mars Bars (and Marshmallows) Campaign, which aims to get CW to reconsider its position on ending the noir mystery series by blanketing the CW offices wth as many Mars bars and marshmallows as humanly possible. Inspired, no doubt, by the success of the send-peanuts-to-CBS campaign, which was a factor in the network saving Jericho, after officially cancelling it.

The campaign is currently looking for donations in the form of purchased Mars bars. (As many people will tell you, US Mars bars are no longer being produced; therefore the only way of purchasing these delicious chocolate-based goodies are through online vendors.) The truckloads of bars will then be brought to CW President Dawn Ostroff's offices on or before June 15th.

Also being organized: an en masse purchase of the Veronica Mars 3rd season finale ("The Bitch Is Back") on iTunes for June 12th, to send a message to studio Warner Bros. Television that there is still a demand out there for the series.

Which leaves little time to organize such an enormous endeavor. So, I urge the remaining Veronica Mars fans out there to spread the word and donate to this cause. I'm not sure candy can directly affect the scheduling decisions of a network (a reduced license fee would more readily do the trick), but who knows what can happen...

I was a huge huge fan of Veronica Mars but I have to say that I really hope it doesn't miraculously return. No, it didn't get the run it deserved, but really I think no matter what, it's never going to get the ratings. And I don't want to see the show in some other incarnation with drastic cast/time/concept changes. I'm ready to move on...

As much as I love VERONICA MARS. This campaign is too little too late. MARS fans should save their time and energy and donate the money to charity.

It's actually not too late until June 15th since that's when all the contracts are up! Learn to hope!

I came here to leave a similar note as your other readers - why so late, VM fans?

I was also surprised that a campaign wasnt' started sooner. I love the show but have made my peace with it. I just hope that the tremendously talented cast and crew are able to move on to equally interesting projects.

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous season

Pilot Inspektor: CBS' "Smith"

I may just have to change my original "What I'll Be Watching This Fall" post, as I sat down and finally watched CBS' new crime drama Smith this weekend. (What? It's taken me a long time to make my way through the stack of pilot DVDs.) While it's on following Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars on Tuesday nights (10 pm ET/PT, to be exact), I'm going to be sure to leave enough room on my TiVo to make sure that I catch this compelling, amoral drama. While one can't help but be impressed by what might just be the most marquee-friendly cast in primetime--Ray Liotta, Virginia Madsen, Jonny Lee Miller, Amy Smart, Simon Baker, and Franky G all star and Shohreh Aghdashloo has a recurring role--the pilot's premise alone earned major points in my book: it's a crime drama from the point of view of the criminals, who engage in high-stakes heists. But don't be alarmed; it's nothing like NBC's short-lived Heist . Instead, think of it as The Italian
