Summer Glau joining Dollhouse for at least 2 episodes

Very nice news to start the day with; Summer Glau has finally been confirmed for two episodes of Dollhouse. Obviously she's worked with Joss Whedon before on Angel, Firefly and Serenity and he's been keen to have her on Dollhouse for a while.

Here's the character details.

I liked her in Firefly, but I hope to God she doesn't play another passive-aggressive schitzo girl because she's done that in just about everything she's ever been in. I'm also looking forward to some Felicia Day action in season two, even though the show is borderline mediocre.

^ If I recall correctly Whedon wanted her to play a chatterbox that was actually a nice person.

I'm still amazed that Whedon said in an interview that he felt the better Sci-Fi Friday program on Fox was cancelled.

Cool, she's watchable in anything she does and it will be particularly good to see her re-united with Whedon and co.

I don't think you're using "passive-aggressive" quite right. Passive-aggressive means letting out your aggression at people indirectly by making veiled comments or ranting about them behind their backs or otherwise avoiding direct confrontation. When River or Cameron got aggressive, there was nothing passive or indirect about it.

Right.

Her characters are "Aggressive-Aggressive".

Whedon was right. I watched both shows last season and I thought TSCC was better. Dollhouse might be too "high concept" for its own good. It will have trouble keeping casual viewers. It wouldn't surprise me if Season 2 turns out to be that last.

^Agreed. Hubby was a fan of both shows and we were surprised when TSCC got canned but Dollhouse did not.

He will be VERY happy to hear that Summer will be one next season.

Let's face it, she's got the Glau Curse. The show will be canned now... although that was on the cards. I don't want it to be, as I worship at the altar of Tahmoh Penikett as is widely known. But let's face it.. it's gonna happen.

I'm glad to see Summer will be around briefly as well.

I lost interest in TSCC so I'm not torn up over it going away. The movies were better and when the big bad Terminator can be avoided and beaten every week it dilutes the amount of terror you should feel when confronting one.

It getting canned was due to simply costing more to produce per episode. That was the straw that broke it.

Yep. It's all about the budget.

I have to agree with him. Like most of Whedon's work, I just can't get into Dollhouse, despite liking the cast. If Summer comes on board I'll give the show a look, at least for her episodes.

This is probably the least surprising bit of news this week. Anyone who saw the Summer and Eliza promos Fox aired when they put Terminator and Dollhouse back to back could see they had great chemistry. Hopefully some of that will be reflected on Dollhouse.

I met him at a convention a couple of years ago.

He is magnificent.



I'll be interested to see how Dollhouse does this year. I enjoyed the first season, maybe more than others did. I hope it succeeds.

I think Summer Glau is excellent. Really looking forward to her arrival. I have great hopes for season 2. Tahmoh needs to get his shirt off more though.
