Fox officially canceled Dollhouse
yesterday, but said it would air the remaining eight episodes of the season. I don't know why I'm surprised by the news. Fox is notorious for killing some of the best shows on television. On the upside, it frees up Joss Whedon
to do other things (Dr. Horrible
2, Maybe?). I would talk more about it but
beat me to it. I wish the networks would take a real chance every once and a while, because not every show can take off in the first 5 episodes. Hell,
didn't really take off in ratings until season 4. Some shows just need time to grow an audience.
I leave you with what Joss had to say on Whedonesque.com
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.
