For as long as I can remember - and probably a lot longer - American television seasons have been creeping downward. A more-or-less standard broadcast season is presently 22 episodes, and that seems more-or-less about fine to me. I don’t complain. However a lot of my older friends can’t wrap their brain around how *Few* episodes shows crank out per year, now, however. The first season of Star Trek consisted of 29 episodes. The Wild Wild West’s first season did 28. The first season of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea did an amazing *Thirty Two!*

Okay. Here's the deal.
As you know, we are very interested in the Fan Film phenomenon. As you also know, Genre Wunderkind Joss Whedon produced an indy web series named "Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog". He made a point of doing it on the cheap, and getting talent and technical personnel to take back-end profit in lieu of (or mostly in lieu of) front end money.
