Dollhouse Campaign

You (yes, I am talking to you there) must watch Joss Whedon's new show, Dollhouse. We can't let another one of his creations die in the wind, people. It premieres this Friday, February 13, at 9pm on Fox. Eliza Dushku (Faith from Buffy) plays Echo who is a member called an "Active" or a "Doll" of an illegal facility called "The Dollhouse." Duh. Anyway, the Actives are a group of individuals who have had their personalities wiped clean so they can be imprinted with any number of new personas. They are hired by the wealthy, powerful and connected to become whomever the client wants or needs them to be -- a lover, an assassin, a corporate negotiator or a best friend. Actives, however, don't just perform their assigned roles, they wholly become them. Actives have no memory of their past and know no other life than their current assignment. Or so they thought. Echo's memory begins to return, and her mysterious past is slowly revealed. She seeks her true identity and faces dangers in and outside of the Dollhouse along the way.

Doesn't it sound so awesome? It is totally different from Joss Whedon's other shows. So please watch! The cards are stacked against Dollhouse, so the show is doomed without our support. First, it is on Fox, the same network that cancelled Firefly. Fox is notorious for cancelling shows after only a few episodes if the ratings are low. Second, Dollhouse is scheduled on Friday nights—the timeslot of death. Sadly, even Joss Whedon himself justified the timeslot, saying that "If I were an executive, I would have put it on Friday too, honestly, and not as a dig. The people who want this will find it, and hopefully more will as well." He has too much confidence in people. I admit I was a big dummy, watching Firefly when it was too late. I am not making that mistake again.

Btw, doesn't Eliza Dushku look hot? Yowza!

Hey you! I agree completely... that you're a big dummy... j/k! Hooray for jumping on the Joss Whedon bandwagon. Better late than never! But yeah, I hope FOX gives this one a chance after they destroyed Firefly. Hope it turns out better, even if it is in the time slot of death! BTW, are you watching Battlestar Galactica yet? It's the best show on TV right now!

I promise to try to watch the show, but my girls most likely won't allow it, because they're mean. =(
