Re: Dollhouse renewed?

The continuing fragmentation of the TV marketplace is paying dividends for fans of SFF shows. Some niche shows are being renewed at ratings levels that would have meant sure cancellation just a few years ago.

I actually watched Dollhouse through till the season finale and I'm still not sure if I'm pleased with this news.

Re: Dollhouse renewed?

Now if we could just get a surprise renewal of TTSCC that would be peachy keen.

That gal in your avatar's show did much better in its season finale, on Friday night, on Fox, yet got the axe. And DVRing doesn't count - they all zap the ads! I stand by my farm animals theory.
Unfortunately while TSCC might be the better show and rated, it's not made by Fox. It's made by WB. Fox gets all the $$$ coming out of Dollhouse (since 20th Century Fox Television makes it): online streaming revenue and DVD/BR sales. Dollhouse already has all their sets built, I predict a lot of bottle episodes next season. Also reducing a few cast members (Sierra maybe and Boyd), possibly to just a few times reoccuring rather than in every episode.

In the season two premiere, Echo becomes allergic to clothing and this lasts indefinitely.

There's gotta be more to it than that. Dollhouse's ratings aren't marginal, they're downright tragic! Maybe Joss is going to make S2 with hand puppets? I don't see how he could get the budget down to match the ratings otherwise.

But if this increases the odds of Reaper and Chuck getting renewed, fine by me. Fox would just fill that slot with some cop show anyway. They've got nothing in the hopper that interests me.

Hey, then it really would be a dollhouse!

Ah, well, I like the show. I like the characters very much, particularly Victor.

Yeah, Victor is my favorite of the dolls. I hope they come up with something cool for him to do now that he's been Alpha'd up. But if there are going to be significant budget cuts, I get the feeling that they may just cut him loose. Which is a shame, because Enver Gjokaj has probably been the strongest actor on the show thus far.

Agreed.

I like the others, and I like Echo when she's a part of the ensemble. Having Alpha show up was great and making him Alan Tudyk was a stroke of genius, in my opinion (I am a massive Firefly fan and was royally upset when Wash was killed in Serenity). I'm excited to see next season, and I hope the budget cuts force them to balance out the dolls instead of making it the Echo & Occasional Friends show. I mean, I like Eliza Dushku, but I don't think she's strong enough to carry the show as the star. She needs to be a part of the ensemble to make it work.

It's not a super renewal. Only 13 episodes and much smaller budget.

Re: Dollhouse renewed?

^ Still, I get to see a show I enjoy continue, unlike what happened to Firefly.

Re: Dollhouse renewed?

If they do this, and cancel T:SCC... I'm going to go ape-shit on them. I think many of us will.

Dollhouse's ratings have been some of the worst I've seen in a decade. Firefly had massive ratings in comparison and they axed it quick as shit. If they don't give T:SCC a 3rd season pick-up and renew Dollhouse? OMG, hell will rain from the skies...

Awesome news. I like she show and it for what it worth, it was much more gripping to me that Sarah Connor. But it would be nice to have both shows back.
