"We are all lost, but we are not gone."  

++ As many are aware, recent reports have announced that Dollhouse, after tonight's episode airs, will be benched from November sweeps and will not be returning until December. Already fans are calling the major bullshit on FOX being behind Dollhouse with their promises, and understandably so. However, I'm actually not that worried like many others are. It seems that this was a decision made at the last minute for business reasons and many other shows will be affected by this as well, not just Dollhouse. I still maintain belief that FOX will continue with their promise in airing the entirety of the season without premature cancellation. The only problem is their lacking in decent promotion for the show, that's my only gripe at the moment. There needs to be more advertisement, and I say we, the fans, should contact them and rally to promote THE HELL out of the show during sweeps.

It's also kinda sad that, despite the huge dedicated fanbase that Joss Whedon has, we have to resort to such deeds just to get our shows recognized and held up in the air against all odds. But hey, we've done the impossible before, and we're doing it again. And it makes us mighty.

++ Okay y'all, I finally saw the movie trailer for Legion and, I think I'm gonna love this film. Like, lots. ANGELS. APOCALYPSE. ADRIANNE PALICKI. WHEE! :D :D Already in love after just seeing the trailer, I've seen the posters and all but the trailer. Oh my God, it's awesome. It'll be awesome. So going to see that, for real now.

I'm going to EXPLODE over Legion! Mostly because of buffed!Bettany playing Michael but the rest looks absolutely awesome as well ♥

I'm just so excited because I'm all ANGELS (WITH PRETTY WINGS!) AND THE MOTHERFUCKING APOCALYPSE, FUCK YEAH! :D I've always been intrigued with such topics, but I have to say since S4 of SPN my interest in biblical theology has risen to new heights that it's almost an obsession. Seeing the full-length trailer for Legion isn't helping, either. ;D

So yay! Excited! \o/

Speaking of Dollhouse, I'm really bitter that I only just found out Alexis Denisof is in season two. Not that I would've been watching live anyway, since I'm not in the US, but still.

I guess this just means I should've been watching the series from the beginning. Amy Acker was cool in both Angel and Alias, and other BSG actors than Tahmoh Penikett have, apparently, been on the show.

Hee. Yeah, Alexis is in season two as part of a multi-episode arc with his character. I was actually very surprised when I heard him NOT using a British accent.

Joss tends to have a knack for bringing in a lot of actors from his previous shows, and being the huge BSG fanboy that he is why the hell wouldn't he ask for other BSG actors? ;p

I cry foul on Fox for promoting Summer Glau's guest spots so heavily 'In Three Weeks Summer Glau joins the cast...blah blah blah' got me all excited for it and now I have to wait SIX weeks? that seems so...not...cool.

I have a feeling that they were meaning to actually air Summer's episodes during sweeps, I remember reading an article about just that, but somehow this was a change that was made suddenly that screwed up their entire schedule. Dollhouse was just in that line of fire for this rearrangement.

I blame baseball. Yes I like that idea. Its all the Phillies and Yankees fault.

Renée: Echo. Save Dollhouse.rogueslayer452 on October 23rd, 2009 08:17 pm (UTC)
Baseball is the fault of many shows being canceled prematurely, it seems. Firefly was the victim of that, as were countless of others. DAMN YOU BASEBALL! DAMN YOU! *shakes fists*

its a curse you know why? 'cause its the YANKEES! those god damn Yankees--they were in the World series the year Firefly was on Fox as well. Look what happened.

I'm dying to see Legion!!!! It's going to be so awesome!!!!!

As for Dollhouse, I've lost all faith in a third season. Apparently, when the show comes back, they're going to air two episodes every week, which to me looks like they want to get rid of them as soon as possible.
I hope I'm wrong, though.

It so is! After seeing the trailer I was grinning like, whoa. It looks awesome.

Apparently, when the show comes back, they're going to air two episodes every week, which to me looks like they want to get rid of them as soon as possible.

That's only after they've returned after their November sweeps hiatus, just to get people back on track. I believe they'll return to normal scheduling after that. It's unclear whether it'll have a third season or not, the key here is for the show to have as many viewings as possible via the online outlets to count and to let FOX know that we watch it, we love it, and if possible we want more. Also, more advertisement.

I haven't given up faith yet. Then again, I'm an optimistic person, so.
