Tube Bits for 07/23/2008

  • The bizz is beginning to increase around Joss Whedon’s new show, Dollhouse. The Calgary Sun has an interview with Eliza Dushku covering the new show, Joss Whedon, and empowered women characters from Whedon.
  • But what’s this? Fox has ordered a new first episode of Dollhouse! They did this with Firefly, have they not learned from the past? Of course, Whedon is saying “It’s not you, it’s me!”
  • Apparently NBC is going to ride Heroes to death. They’ve ordered 3 more episodes for season 3, bringing the total to 25. If the writing stays as poor as it was in season 2, this will be a long, slow, whimpering demise.
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender may have ended it’s series run, but the creators have left open the possibility of more in the universe, albeit with new characters. This is one show on my ‘must see’ list.
  • The executive producers of the upcoming Eleventh Hour series say their show will be focusing on real science. Which sounds good to me, even if the suits actually confused real science with science fiction, as if a little SF would be a bad thing.
  • The Sci-Fi Channel has released a trailer for the mini-series Caprica. I’m still not sold on this. And depending on how Galactica ends, I may wash my hands entirely of the show.

  1. OOh, keep the Avatar news coming, please. I’m on the lookout for spin-off news.

    And as for the new Heroes season, just thinking about 25 more episodes makes me tired. It would be great if the writing has improved, but that show has been going NOWHERE and I am not hopeful.

  2. I hope on Heroes, they work to prevent a VERY BAD DANGER which is going to happen VERY SOON IN THE FUTURE, and which they will all work for or against WITHOUT KNOWING THEY ARE CONNECTED! Oh, and also, I would like some VAGUE CONSPIRACY, please.

    Heroes season 1 was good the first time, when you get caught up in the energy of it. Season 2 went “So what did we talk about last time? NEVER MIND GO AWAY.”

    I’m not even interested in season 3.

    And would the studios please just hand Joss Whedon blank checks and then leave him to write brilliance? Good grief. If I can wait and then watch the complete 13 episode run of Dollhouse, I’ll be bitter and not at all surprised…
