You don’t have to be a television fanatic to enjoy Michael Sparaga’s absorbing documentary about the cutthroat world of network TV, the shows that have to fight to stay on the air and the fans that rally the support for their renewal. There’s the fabulously named Bjo Trimble who mounted the first letter writing campaign to save Star Trek back in the 1960s, right up to campaigning in the modern age with Kaily Russell, who’s using the internet to rally support for Person of Interest, a show that has helped her accept her sexuality and come out to friends and family. United We Fan is a heartfelt tribute to super fans, queer and straight, the whole world over.
