I think rather than just adopting locked shows, all shows should have to be adopted by a user before the user can edit/add data. This allows the admins the ability to easily revoke privileges when a problem with a series is reported. The adopting process can be open, you simply go to the show and click a button to adopt it. Your username and other information, such as an IP address log (which would be accessible only by admins) could be logged so that if you're reported or found to be causing issues it's easy for them to revoke your privileges.

On top of that users could also have a page listed (similar to the favorites page) where they can view all the shows they've adopted.
