I loved that episode. I'd forgotten for a while that Tudyk was playing Alpha, I just remembered he was going to be in it. Then he cut up a face and I remembered. I love Tudyk, he's amazing. The show keeps getting better, I'm still hoping it doesn't end with this season.

Been wanting to see Dollhouse for a while now but haven't noticed it on UK TV. Anyone know if it's started airing yet, and where?

Starts on Sci-Fi soonish. Saw an advert for it yesterday, can't remember the exact date.

What's everyone think of the new Buffy movie they're doing then? No Joss, it's helmed by the director of the original (and awful) Buffy film. Remake, scrapping all characters apart from Buffy and starting it pre-Sunnydale.

Yeah, it'll be shit.

While Serenity is an awesome film, I do think Objects in Space was a better end to the series than Serenity was. Serenity feels very much like the first part of a film series, not the end of one. Objects in Space, on the other hand, ends with River proving she isn't useless, and the rest of the crew accepting her after discussing throwing her off the ship earlier, so there's a bit of closure.

Plus, Objects in Space has Jubal Early, who is beyond awesome.

In non-Firefly related news, I've been rewatching bits of Buffy Season 6 since it airs on FX at the same time as I have my breaks from college, and it's a lot better than I remember it being. Generally, I rank the seasons 3>2>1>4>6>7>5, but on a rewatch, I'd definitely rank season 6 above season 4, and probably above season 1 as well. The first half of it in particular is excellent, with "Once More, With Feeling", "Tabula Rasa" and "Normal Again" in it, it just starts to drop in quality with the whole Dark Willow storyline, which was a bit shit.

Just saw that Dollhouse is getting a DVD release two days after my birthday so I'll definatley be buying that. Especially since I STILL haven't managed to find it on TV. Also comes with an unshown episode (at least in the US). Definatley something I'll spend the full day watching in bed.

Don't give up on it when it's shit for the first 6 episodes or so. Picks up after that.

Also Fox has said they still might air the episode, they just didn't air it during the original run. It was just an extra standalone one, though, the main arc was tied up before it. Sort of like that episode at the end of Buffy season 4 with the First Slayer, after they've already killed the season's big bad.

Also Felicia Day, from Dr. Horrible, is in it.

It's airing on Sci-Fi in the UK at the minute, by the way.

Yeah apparently that had something to do with the network as well. Just reading something along the lines of they made him air five pilot episodes so that audiences could tune in whenever and understand what was going on. After that he had more control over things and the second season will hopefully follow that trend.

Also Felicia Day, from Dr. Horrible, is in it.

Speaking of UK DVD releases, this is coming soon as well. Even though I've seen it online it's definatley something that I'll want sitting in my collection.

Oh awesome. I've been put off importing the region 0 release since only Amazon.com stock it, and I'd have to pay for overseas shipping and that. Didn't know it was getting a proper release over here.

Epitaph One (the 13th episode of Dollhouse that didn't air in America) will air on Sci-Fi UK on the 11th of August, which is before the DVD release it'll be in comes out.

Awesome.

Epitaph One is without a doubt the best episode of Dollhouse so far. It is FANTASTIC. Miles and miles ahead of the rest of the series. Completely different to every other episode, too. It's set in 2019, where the Dollhouse technology has leaked and caused the end of the world. Imprinted people outnumber normal people, and an imprint can be transmitted wirelessly through any piece of technology. It concerns a group of survivors, including Felica Day (Penny from Doctor Horrible), just trying to survive and keep their own minds.

It's perfect. Fox was insane to not air it.

Dollhouse really is turning into a massive sci-fi actor fan wank.

I mean, you've already got Eliza Dushku (Faith from Buffy, Tru from Tru Calling), Tahmoh Penikett (Helo from Battlestar Galactica), Amy Acker (Fred from Angel), Alan Tudyk (Wash from Firefly), Mark Sheppard (Badger from Firefly, Romo Lampkin from Battlestar Galactica) and Felicia Day (Penny from Dr. Horrible, professional geek) and now Joss has announced he's getting Summer Glau (River in Firefly, Cameron in Terminator) and Alexis Denisof (Wesley from Buffy and Angel) next season, AND Jamie Bamber (Apollo in Battlestar Galactica) is rumoured to be appearing next season.

Fuck, throw in Nathon Fillion and Edward James Olmos and I don't think I'll need to watch another show ever again.

I absolutely fucking ADORE Firefly, it's an amazing show. Too bad it got cancelled.

There is a script for the 15th Episode, and it kicks ass.

Dollhouse got cancelled then.

Anyone really care? It was inevitable, I was amazed when it got a second series, and I haven't even watched season 2 yet. Whedon shows are too niche for Fox, and having a shit start to it didn't really help. End of the season was fantastic, as was the unaired episode, but now that's it's done, I think I'm going to wait for all of season 2 to air, so I can watch it in one go, rather than getting back into it now.

With Dollhouse out, does that mean more Dr. Horrible?

Also did you anyone here see the Halloween episode of Nathan Fillion's new show Castle? He references Firefly at the ste start of the episode. Oh, found it. I love that he still cares about it.

I think more Dr. Horrible was planned anyway.

Whedon posted on Whedonesque after the announcement:

Hmm. Apparently my news is not news.

I don't have a lot to say. I'm extremely proud of the people I've worked with: my star, my staff, my cast, my crew. I feel the show is getting better pretty much every week, and I think you'll agree in the coming months. I'm grateful that we got to put it on, and then come back and put it on again.

I'm off to pursue internet ventures/binge drinking. Possibly that relaxation thing I've read so much about. By the time the last episode airs, you'll know what my next project is. But for now there's a lot of work still to be done, and disappointment to bear.

Thank you all for your support, your patience, your excellent adverts. See you again. -j.

So yeah, expect announcement soon.

Also did you anyone here see the Halloween episode of Nathan Fillion's new show Castle? He references Firefly at the ste start of the episode. Oh, found it. I love that he still cares about it.

I didn't see the episode, but I saw the clip of him dressed as Mal.

I caught up with Dollhouse a few weeks ago, marathoning all of season 2 while it's on the break, having not watched since Epitaph One.

Season 2 is how the show should have been from the start. Seeing the engagements themselves is boring, the workings of the Dollhouse itself are interesting. Honestly though, it's still only good, not great. Epitaph One was amazing, but I don't think the post-apocalyptic setting would work for more than a one off thing. Glad it's ending, and that it was cancelled with enough time to spare for it to actually be given an ending, rather than to just have it stop. I'd rather see Whedon working on something new, because as good as Dollhouse is, it doesn't feel like Whedon.

Spoilers for Epitaph Two in this post.

Epitaph Two was Dollhouse perfected. Fantastic ending. I mean, we're not talking "Not Fade Away" good, but still pretty great. Ballard's death was probably the most shocking in a Whedon show. I mean, killing of main characters unexpectedly isn't new (Wash ;_;), but never so suddenly, in an otherwise unremarkable action sequence.

Topher's death didn't hit me as hard, him being insane and all, and I was very surprised both Priya and Tony survived, since as a rule you're not allowed to have happy, stable relationships in Whedon shows.

Still, on the whole the show was probably Whedon's weakest. Season 2 was great, but the impossibly slow start to season 1 killed the audience before it could even get going. At least it had a decent ending.

Roll on Dr. Horrible 2, then.
