Joss Whedon's 'Dollhouse' Canceled!
stoopid fox! i hate them! no one should ever pitch an idea to them again. it seems the only shows their willing to keep are those stupid reality contests and the Simpsons.
they keep doing this to me! Get Real was one of my favorite tv shows ever! you know what they did? they put it on a crap night at 9, and then cancelled it with 2 episodes left! the show had EVERYBODY in it! Anne Hathaway. Christina Milian, Jesse Eisenberg (Adventureland, Zombie land), Eric Christian Olsen,Taryn Manning, Mila Kunis, Tom Arnold. All in that show! And all of the names you imediatly recognize off of that list? almost all of them where pretty much boosted up by this show. and almost 10 years later, Fox STILL wont give us a DVD. Comon! just give it to us for free online!
and what about Boston Public? Popular? Greg the Bunny? The Tick? the Ben Stiller Show? family Guy and Futurama? Titus?
these dips keep screwing over great shows by under advertising them, putting them in crapy slots, and planting sports over them without airing them later. Why the Hell wouldnt they plan to re-air the show? cuz their the devil! they love the idea of dangling a 5 corse meal in front of a starving man and then tossing it on a slanted roof where the man can watch it fester and die!
No one ever pitch any ideas to them ever! let them wait until a show has done really well on another network and then buy it for an insane amount of money.
I admit the episodes so far weren't all that, but did any one see the extra episode on the DVD? It was awesome. Much more Weadon style. And from the episodes in season two thus far, I think he really was trying to take it in that direction. It's a shame. I really would have liked to have seen what he would have turned it into.
Okay..... So Terminator the Sarah Connor Chronicles gets cancelled, and Dollhouse is given a second chance..... Now it's cancelled as well, and what are we on? Like the fifth episode? I'm getting tired of this. It's why I don't watch a lot of tv anymore. All my favorite shows get cancelled, and I'm getting tired of being pulled in, and then cut off.
Joss, if this message can get to you, please.... STOP! GOING! TO! FOX! "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me".
Everyone can complain all they want about the pacing, but Buffy didn't pick up until the second season. And even back then, it still had to move to another network just to stay on. Joss' show's always seem to get cancelled, which sucks.
i watched the show... despite the shoddy acting. it was a bit of a guilty pleasure... but it had enough unique and quirky aspects to it to warrant my time.
Dushku couldn't act her way out of a wet paper bag. terrible, terrible acting. its good to be the producer.
Tudyk's cameo as Alpha was awesome.
2 seasons.. maybe too soon? 3 seasons and i would have been satisfied.
would've like to have seen the dolls treated like red shirts (that survived multiple shows, instead of 5 minutes in) and churned through them as the seasons went along i think it would've improved it.
Family Guy (although they did wake up and reverse this one)
" Does anyone have any insight into all of this craziness? "
Terminator TSCC (got 1 full season)
but to be fair to Fox, I did try to watch Dollhouse and IMO it sucked. It was one of the few times Fox did the right thing
Man Whedon can't get a break these days can he? Remember when everybody loved him in the 90's? Come to think of it I stopped watching Buffy when Oz left & never got into Angel, Firefly, or any of his other projects. Maybe if he made a Buffy reboot where all the vampires were sparkly models he'd have more success.
