Dollhouse

Well, that was disappointing. I didn't hate it, but if I hadn't known it was a Joss Whedon show, I probably wouldn't have stayed awake through the end. I'll be curious to see whether next week's episode is better, since that's supposedly the one that Joss originally intended as the pilot.

From what Joss and the cast said you have to wait until the 5th episode for everything to really come together...

Yes, holding off on final opinion for now, as usual w/most new series.

It was nice to hear Amy Acker using a grown-up voice, rather than the fluffy sort of Fred voice. And it's hard to knock whatever gives actors I like (e.g., Duskhu, Lennix, Acker) a decent paycheck.

Let's see...a Joss Whedon show airs on a Fox channel on Friday night, and the intended pilot gets shunted down the line by the network in favor of something not as good.

Smells like Firefly.

And who was surprised.

They're not changing the timeslot. Yet.

From what I've heard, the third episode will actually be shown next week.

'Ya know what this show really needs. Let me tell ya Josh, it needs a kid or a dog. Maybe a kid WITH a dog!'

'Uh, kids and dogs aren't the audience I was targeting.'

'Aww, heck. That's where all the studies are saying the consumer dollar is gonna come from. Everyone else will be outta work 'cept for the kids and the dogs.'

'Hmm, you got a point there.'

'Fabulous! Oh, yah another thing. We put all your shows into this little hat here and decided to show them in the order my pet monkey Mr. Boingo pulls them out.'

'Sounds like a sound management decision. You'll get a bonus for that.'

'Humor' aside. I don't think Joss has hit his stride yet. It usually takes some time for the bits to fall together, besides this show demands a musical number...
