Film Studies For Free wanted you to know you have to go with the new issue of Flow: A Critical Forum on Television and Media Culture on Fandom and Fan Studies.  Oh, and then you can join the party already started at In Media Res on issues of spectatorship. The great contents of these worthy e-journals are directly linked to below:

In Media Res December 13-17, 2010 (Theme week organized by Ian Peters [Georgia State University])
Flow: A Critical Forumon Television and Media Culture
