Dollhouse renewed for Season 2!!!

Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio
Today FOX officially announced its 2009-2010 schedule, and Joss Whedon fans were delighted to see Dollhouse on the schedule.  After much debate and anxiety, Dollhouse was thankfully renewed for a second season thanks in no small part to the overwhelming support and Save Dollhouse campaigns on the Internet.

The question now is whether FOX renewed it just to appease fans before a quick cancellation next season or if it means Dollhouse might have some steam.  I choose to be optimistic about the fate of Dollhouse, and it's not out of sheer delusion.  There are some very good reasons to feel good about Dollhouse's renewal.

The show follows an organization that employs mind-wiped humans known as Dolls who are implanted with false memories and skills for various missions and tasks. When they are not 'at work' they are living in a real life Dollhouse which gives the show the name.

One of those mind-wiped humans, a young woman named Echo, is slowly starting to become aware of herself and what's going on... all the while somebody on the outside is trying to bring the Dollhouse down while getting closer to Echo... possibly not aware that she is one of the Dolls he is after.

This is one show i highly reccomend you start following... it's one of the brightest shows on TV at the moment, with amazing writing and acting... amazing stuff and i'm stoked to see it renewed for a second season

it's a kick ass show... here are a few reviews by wellknown / well respected websites / newspapers...

80% - Philadelphia Daily News

Dollhouse is less about the ninja kicks and witty banter than it is about instant transformations, and about making the audience care about a character who's likely to behave differently every time we see her. That Dushku mostly pulls this off is a happy surprise, as is Dollhouse, which has survived "Firefly"-like trials of its own to get this far.

75% - New York Post

Good, dirty fun.

70% Time Magazine

While it's haunting, cerebral and gorgeous, it's also a little cold, though the flashes of humor help. Like its actives, it's a marvelous piece of engineering.

80% Salon

Combining intelligent layers of mystery with sly dialogue and a steady flow of action, Whedon has crafted a provocative, bubbly new drama that looks as promising as anything to hit the small screen over the course of the past year.

I think all those reviews sum it up way better than i ever could...

When Time Magazine gives something a high score, you can take it as gospel that it's something worth taking a look at

Watchmen got 82% as a book.... 70% is more than respectful for a tv show

yes.... and?

70% would be more than a pass in all exams

it varies accross countries on the passing grade, for example, you only need 86% to pass a driving test in the US... so thats only 16% more than Dollhouse scored... and that's not bad for a first season
