Re: Dollhouse renewed?

Maybe this is payback for firefly? The show was created as unkillable no matter what?

Who wants to be know forever as the new idiots at FOX?

Re: Dollhouse renewed?

I just wish they were taking "a bet on Joss Whedon" with a better show. Dollhouse is pretty good, but it's not grassroots-cult-hit-after-the-fact good.

If this doesn't balloon in popularity, which it probably won't, it'll be a long while before Joss gets another such bet.

Re: Dollhouse renewed?

I'm pleased to hear Dollhouse is getting a few more eps to show it's worth. Actually when I saw ep.1 I was pretty thrilled -This show looked very interesting and with a enorumors potential for storytelling. Then came episode 2-5
2: Target; The one with the hunter who likes to hun humans...boring stuff.
3: Stage Fright; Horrible episode made me forget the whole thing for 5 weeks.
4: Gray Hour; Somehow I managed to forget episode 3 and saw this, I was not very impressed. And wrote the show off.
5: True Believer; One dull evening I decided to watch this ep anyway -and I'm glad I did. It turned out OK, it was not really good or anything, but not painfull to watch So I decided to give the show a fair chance of 10 eps.

After ep 6 (Man on the Street) I was hooked, I just loved the November tvist


So in my opinion this show needed to find its footing and direction of story with the cast. I think they found it and i'm looking forward to learn more about the dolls and their puppeteers.

I keep hearing about this twist that happened in the 6th episode but I missed that one. What exactly happened?

Re: Dollhouse renewed?

I finished the season 2 days ago (burned through it in 3 days) and I liked it more than I expected and you can tell when FOX got there fat asses out of Whedon's show because while the first 6 episodes were good (1 stinker the Vault episode) the last 6 episodes were much much better.

I like the action, humor and the characters are growing on me (loved the virus ep that made them all kids and the laser tag scenes). The plots are getting better ans the whole mythology of the show has been done really well, I especially like the public being asked about Dollhouse.

Look forward to season 2 though I think it will be canned due to FOX's refusual to move the show though the fall could help as Fall fridays do better than mideseason fridays. Also keep the show as 13 episodes I don't want 22 (Joss do cable).
