Save Dollhouse!

All I’m saying is if we started collecting signatures on the petition now, it will save us time in the long run. How many of you want to wait until Fox actually cancels “Dollhouse” to start the “Save Dollhouse” campaign. We’ve learned our lesson so many times before. Let’s just be prepared. We need to go ahead and organize a few fan get-togethers, rallies, meetups, etc. We need to spread the word that Fox can’t cancel this new and original show without giving it a chance.

Yes, I understand that it hasn’t even begun production yet. That’s besides the point. If we had started campaigning for Firefly’s renewal before they had even cast all the parts, we might still be watch Captain Tight Pants, and Space Whore, and the rest every alternate Friday at 4am and each 3rd Tuesday after the infomercials go off (prime slots for the 18-34 demo).

Also, seeing as how it’s Monday, November 5th, the Writer’s Guild probably just went on strike just went on strike. This means basically all non-reality shows will be halting production. In an act of solidarity (or something) with my creative brethren, I am providing a “speechless” version of today’s comic.

Please take it and fill in whatever words you like (unless you are a member of the Writer’s Guild. Then you aren’t allowed to write words). Make it funny, make it stupid, or make it make less sense than the original. When you are done, email it to comics (at) hijinksensue (dot) com. Don’t forget to tag it with your name. I will post the ones I like best on the site. If this works out and you guys enjoy it, I will make “Webcomic Remix” an ongoing feature.

Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse”: Start the cancelation clock!

I think I’m going to cry. Joss is coming back to TV and… oh god…. he’s bringing friends.

Eliza Dushku and Tim Minear.

“Dollhouse” stars Dushku as Echo, one of a group of secret agents living in a futuristic dorm. Each has the ability to be imprinted with custom personalities and abilities for special assignments. When they return, their newly acquired memories are wiped. The show follows Echo as she takes on a variety of assignments—some romantic, some adventurous, some uplifting, some illegal—and gains awareness of her role and confinement.

Via AICN, via TV Week. More bits from Ausiello.

Ok, so Fox (why did it have to be them?), do me one favor. Give it a fucking chance. Also don’t air the episodes out of order. Also don’t slot it Friday at 9pm or against Grey’s Anatomy.
