I got some terrible news this past week. News that has me contemplating serious violence against a major American TV station. There’s no easy way to say this, so I’m going to give it to you straight…
DollHouse has been canceled.
That’s right. Fox has canceled Joss Whedon’s latest masterpiece. I really don’t get it, DollHouse is the best show to be aired since… well… since FireFly (which the bloodless corporate drones also cancelled), amazingly imaginative and thought provoking Sci-Fi, challenging scripts pulled off by incredible acting by a talented and diverse cast. I suppose we should be glad that Joss was allowed to do two seasons instead of the one that FireFly managed… but i’m not!
One thing I guess we have though… if DollHouse does follow FireFly’s career path, we’ve got a kick ass movie to look forward to in a couple years.
In the meantime, if anyone wants to sponsor a flight to the US and a couple tons of Hi-Ex…. fox hunting season is open.
