Update:10/24/09

So Dollhouse may or may not be getting cancelled. There is still hope that Fox doesnt suck *ss. Its funny they can spend tons of money on American Idol but screw Whedon.

But what has been comfirmed been confirmed is that Fox has ordered 13 episodes of the second season and will be airing them finishing Dec 4th.

Also for all us Whedon fans Summer Glau will be joining the cast on Dec 4th to play Topher's counterpart in another Dollhouse. And from the clips it looks like she might have be a little crazy. Maybe she's as mad as we are that Sarah Conner got cancelled just when they had a steller season finale.

Ill have more info as I got them.

Also for all Netflix users looking to watch the episode "Epitah One" and the original unaired pilot get the last disc in that set (I dont know about the Blu-Ray). It comes with both episodes and tons of special features including cool commentary about the 2 episodes with Whedon's son Jed and his sons wife. Its a must buy for all Whedon fans. Maybe wait till Black Friday when it might be super cheap.







This is the thread for the hottest new sci fi show on TV called Dollhouse. Starring *ss kicker herself Eliza Dushku back into butt kicking action since her vampire slaying days as the slightly crazy Faith from the same creator Joss Whedon. Here's a spot to post your comments about anything to do with the show. From the killer cast besides Eliza is another Joss favorite from Angel Amy Acker as the butt kicking Eliria. To the fresh fight sequence that we know they'll have. So post away and catch every episode on Friday nights at 9pm et on Fox and Hulu.com.

This also for the Joss Whedon fans that dont want another great show of his to get canceled again, ie Firefly. So if another show comes on at the time just Tivo so executives see that we love the show. There also the guy from Battlestar Gallatica for all you fans like me to make you tune in. So tune in so they dont cancel another Whedon masterpiece.

This is a show to support Dollhouse, Joss Whedon , Eliza Dushku. So if you dont like I'm sure there's a thread for you to post in. This thread is for positive feedback for people that like the show and want to see more seasons in the future.

This thread needs to be done to rally the Whedon fans, or some people, to watch this show so it doesn't get screwed and canceled.

This is actually on my queue in Hulu and I might watch this tomorrow.
There's only been one episode right?

When does this come on? I could search but I'm about to get up and get a drink and go piss. I'd expect an answer by the time I return :)

I think the second episode was yesterday and it too is on Hulu. The shows on Fridays, the day I have to work :cry:, so I can't catch it at its intended time/day. I've been so busy lately, that I have yet to catch it on Hulu for that matter. I'm also 4 episodes behind on Fringe.

As a big fan of Buffy (and to a lesser degree, Angel) I thought I would check out Dollhouse. I'm going to give it a few more episodes, but truthfully I'm not loving it so far. Actually, I don't think I like it at all.

The problem is there is NOTHING redeemable about the character of Echo. It's not a matter of acting or writing... the entire concept is flawed. I don't like the idea.

Or to be more accurate, I liked the idea better when it was called "The Pretender" on NBC back in the 90s. Same basic show, only the hero (in this case, a guy named Jarod) didn't have his memory erased after every episode.

Sorry, Mr. Whedon... I'll give you until the end of the season to start to do something with the character, but otherwise I'm bailing. This is almost as crappy as Firefly.

I'm not really into this show, but i'll keep watching to see if it gets better. I like the Battlestar Galactica references.

I still miss Tru Calling :(.


EDIT: I just started watching the 2nd episode of Dollhouse and the lawyer from Battlestar Galactica is in it!

I'm a big fan of Angel and Firefly but honestly I'm not really feeling dollhouse. To me it seems too much like "My Own Worst Enemy" but not as good. This weeks ep kinda has me even more skeptical than after the first ep. They basically just ripped off that Ice-T movie "Surviving the game." Since it is Joss Whedon, I'll keep watching it because it has the potential to get good. But right now it gets a big meh from me.

I am really enjoying the show. I think the writing and story is very interesting thus far. The only concern that I have is that the show is debuting on a Friday which usually means the show is one episode away from being cancelled. I am going to be really pissed if I really enjoy the show only to see it cancelled midway through the season.

Yeah, it's definitely on death watch right now. Of course, putting it on Friday night probably sealed it's demise.

Ratings fell 15% between the first and second episode.

And since second episode was almost insultingly bad, I expect a bigger dropoff next week.

Get out the forks.

Pretty crappy show IMO but then again I don't understand the following that Whedon's shows have. I don't understand how anyone could say the words "entertaining" and "Buffy or Angel" in the same sentence with a straight face.

I just saw episodes 1 and 2 on Fox.com and it's interesting so far. I'll continue watching the show to see where things go.

Shows usually take awhile to build up steam so I'm not being too harsh on it right now.

A lot of people have been saying that her acting on the show is terrible.



the first episode didn't do well ratings-wise and the second one did worse... expect this to be canceled... I think it costs a lot to produce as well.

Joss Whedon needs to either stop doing tv series on Fox, or just switch to films. He needs to learn how to make a story that instantly gets into the groove. Hes to much of a 90's writer/director where he draws stuff out so long.

He needs to write show to show instead of planning a giant 3 season Arc.

He also has a taste for actors that are a bit of cheese, 90's style. Yeah i loveeee firefly/serenity, but you have to admit all the acting is over the top and corny. Thats part of the charm, but audiences these days wont accept that anymore.
Firefly was just getting started on the last episode...

Don't forget get to catch the newest episode of Dollhouse tonight where Echo will become the most sought out job all kids and teens want.

should be fun. I've seen her cheer and kick butt but never sing before.

OK episode. I didn't know Eliza Dushku could sing. IMO, I think the story arc is building to Echo
Spoiler
I'll stick with the show for now since Whedon has a proven track record of having his seasons planned out well.

Completely agree with your spoiler. I saw this happening from the first episode. It's really just the natural progression for the character. It almost feels more like a movie plot to me though. Not sure how they're going to continuously stretch it out.

I think people criticizing the show so soon just have ADD. The story is clearly building people. Give it time to expand. I'm really interested in how Joss is going to develop Amy Acker's character. You just know he's going to do something big with her. I only hope Fox gives him the time to do it.

The best kind of shows are those that are drawn out. Only you have to have your initial episode be a fucking powerhouse. Like Lost, Sopranos, Dexter, etc. It can't be some weak shit. I guess Heroes would be the perfect example. The first season did not relent, simlar to Lost in that each episode was planned as part of a long arch but felt like finale material. Unfortunately the rest was not as impressive because the creators went a little to far "drawing it out', trying to literally create comic book style story archs that go on all year and only please 50% of the audience.
