Tonight one of the two shows I’ve actually been trying to keep up with is on:  Dollhouse!  If you’re not watching it, go to HULU.COM to watch all the episodes without the annoyance of having to download a player or having to watch it in a tiny square or any of that nonsense.   No, Joss Whedon (of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel) did not pay me to say that.  I genuinely like this show.  It’s an old formula, but I don’t mind formulaic tv/movies as long as it’s done well and this IS.  And, don’t get put off by the first episode.  By the end of the second episode, I was hooked and the first one didn’t thrill me at all.  Hey, ya gotta give ’em time to set the story up, right?  I really hope this show makes it.  I know a lot of people watch the Sarah Connor Chronicles that comes on before Dollhouse, and I’m hopeful that alone will keep it alive for now.  I haven’t looked at the stats, but since I entered a certain age bracket I have to live in constant fear that my shows will be canceled (Jericho, for example).  Soon, I’ll have to watch nothing but crime shows, and I just can’t live on Law & Order alone even if NBC does put it on every day of the week!  😦  Dollhouse is good Friday night fare.  It’s interesting and a little thought provoking.  I like a nice ride and this show can leave you going ‘Whoa!  What was THAT about?’ or you can just sit back and enjoy the story.  That’s a rarity these days.  Besides, Burn Notice doesn’t come back until June (I was quite let down that Fi only got to shoot Carla…I wanted to see a good ole asskickin’!).  *sigh* Jeffrey Donovan, you wicked stud.
