Dollhouse cancelled after 13!

Not really surprised. Oh well. Honestly, it got a lot more of a chance than most shows like this would get.

That it got more episodes than Firefly makes me sad. Still sorry to see it go.

Hopefully, if Joss ever dares to have yet another go, he can come up with something a bit better.

Re: Dollhouse cancelled after 13!

I think "Not really surprised" is an understatement. Nobody actually expected the thing to get a third season.

In fact, I'm not even sure an exclamation point is needed in the title.

It is pretty bad when an unaired episode that barely has the series regulars in it was FAR more interesting than the rest of the series.

I've never seen this show. And now it's cancelled. Just like Firefly.

Ah well.

You weren't missing much. Dollhouse certainly wasn't Whedon's best work.

Apparently it hasn't actually been canceled. Rather, Fox has decided not to pick up a back 9. A decision on cancellation will be made in the new year.

Re: Dollhouse cancelled after 13!

I swear to God and General Zod, if Whedon EVER gets talked into working with Fox television again I will drive to his house and bitch slap the man.

It's not just a matter of liking some of his aborted shows. The guy just keeps wasting the time of his fans and regular viewers and the talent of his favorite actors on projects that Fox will abort. I think it's clear at this point that Whedon just isn't interested in making shows that Fox likes, and arguably, the average Fox viewer has any interest in.

At least, if there's any possible silver lining, it's that they've maybe got time for some form of closure in episode 13 of season 2, which will leave the story "clean cut" and less awkward to pick up later in a television movie, mini-series, or comic book.

I was surprised when it was renewed for a second season so I'm not very surprised either.

I hope Joss isn't too discouraged and that he comes up with a better idea in the future.

I suppose if they're going to bother airing the remaining episodes anyway, they may as well see how they do before making any final decisions.

Still, not holding my breath.

Not really a surprise, but also not anything I'll shed a tear over. I'm a big fan of Whedon's previous work, but Dollhouse just left me cold. I'll look forward to whatever his next project is now that he's gotten this stain on his resume out of the way.

For fans of the show, I'm sorry to hear it. I didn't watch, I'm not a Whedon fan, but he'll do another show before long and with luck it'll stick like Buffy and Angel did.
