Dollhouse trailer

Joss Whedon's pretty awesome in my book. Buffy, Angel, Firefly. I mean, I love his shows (and Serenity) but I'm not one of those brown coat groupies or anything. I am, however, looking forward to his latest, Dollhouse, starring the lovely Faith herself, Eliza Dushku, although when we'll get it in the UK I have no idea. I haven't even seen a single episode of Fringe yet, but that's only cos it's on Sky One and I don't have it.

oh man... you NEED to see Fringe. it's great. it's probably the most graphic show on network cable. the character Walter (played brilliantly by John Noble) makes the show for me. it has elements of Lost, of course, thanks to JJ Abrams, and will quench that sci-fi/mystery thirst until the best show on television returns in January.

before you watch the pilot, make sure you're not eating... anything.

just a heads up.

I say for most episodes of Fringe to make sure you're not eating. Especially the most recent one I think it was. ACK!

As for Dollhouse, this is actually the old trailer you have here. The new one is much better, IMHO. :)

And I am indeed a Browncoat, being that I am a BIG fan of Firefly. It's actually my favorite show. 'Course Mad Men is tempting it to scoot over, but it's Joss, so I just can't allow that. Buffy too, actually. That was my first big fandom/show.

Btw, I'm assuming you've seen the Dr. Horrible phenomenon? I wanted to comment here a while back when it first came out - to give you the heads up to promote it, but it ended up not needing the help since the site crashed and it stayed on iTunes at #1 for a good 4-5 weeks.

And well, I'm gonna stop my commenting here because I could go on and on about Whedon & co.

I'm all for passionate fans Gina, so good on you. For the first few seasons of Buffy when it aired on Sky One in the UK and nobody watched it, I used to bore everyone I knew with how brilliant the show was, how smart, witty, etc (same as The Wire, in fact).

Will check out that new Dollhouse trailer, so thanks for the heads up.

As for Fringe, I think I'm going to wait for the DVD box set now but clearly, taking both yours and Steven's advice, I shall not eat before or while watching it. Yucky TV. How wonderful!

Glad to hear it. :)
I was actually just talking to a sorta-friend (friend of a friend) about Buffy. Or well, I was expressing my dislike of Dollhouse being put on Friday nights, and I mentioned it being "by Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy". It was my selling point. And the guy says, "You care about a show by that Buffy guy?" I was speechless. He did say he liked Serenity but hadn't really seen Firefly. I finally got around to asking him "Have you only seen a few random episodes of Buffy?" He shakes his head 'no'. I ask, "Just one?" Same answer. I then ask, "Have you seen ANY Buffy?" Nope! So I then told him to shut it before saying anything he'll regret. He went on about "the CW" - I corrected him that it was the WB and who else was gonna pick up a show about a vampire slayer? lol
I am now trying to decide which one or two scenes of the brilliant Buffy to pimp to him. I'm thinking Buffy finding her mom, something from "Restless" or "Hush", or maybe the musical. Sweet's number so that it appeals to his appreciation for jazzy theatre music might work.

Indeed. I once had a very bad experience of watching [the end of] "Stacy" while eating noodles. Needless to say, I didn't finish the noodles.
