<I>Dollhouse</I>: Five Reasons Next Season Is Shaping Up to Be Surprisingly Good

I know that I complain about Dollhouse a lot around these parts, but that has a lot to do with my high expectations for anything from the Joss Whedon world. Sorry, I've been spoiled. That said, while the beginning of this series was downright terrible, it did show some improvement as it went along (for those who made it that far), and I'm sort of intrigued at where this will go in Season 2 now that so much of the Dollhouse's world has been thrown into chaos. I'm especially curious now, since there have been some announcements about next season (from Comic-Con and post-Con) that sound very, very promising.

Why the <I>Real Housewives of New Jersey</I> is Such a Disappointment I had high hopes for this series, as I've grown to really love particularly the New York and OC installments (I'm getting there with Atlanta. Maybe this season I'll develop a proper obsession), but so far I pretty much hate this show. I know we're only five episodes in, but these five episodes have offered far less compelling material than the first five episodes of each of the other franchise's debut seasons. I'm definitely excited about watching them threaten to pummel each other next Tuesday, but man, what a letdown the first five episodes of this show have been. I've tried to explore the roots of the problem.

Whedon Need No Stinkin’ Dollhouse Interview!

Whedon Need No Stinkin’ <i>Dollhouse</i> Interview!

The March 20th episode of Dollhouse is the fabled sixth episode, the one in which everything supposedly changes and the series really kicks into high gear. Angel has already told us her impressions of it, but now we have a lot of questions about the rest of the season -- luckily, show creator Joss Whedon was standing by to take our conference call, and play defense on a bunch of questions about sex, dolls and Dollhouse Season 4.

Desperate Housewives: How Creepy Dave Will Do It

<i>Desperate Housewives:</i> How Creepy Dave Will Do It

Having really only gotten into Desperate Housewives this season, and not really having any investment in any of the regular characters, the biggest thing that keeps me looking forward to each new episode is Ol' Blue Eyes, Neal McDonough. As "Creepy" Dave Williams, new husband to Edie Britt and widower to the woman (and child) who died in Mike and Susan's car accident, McDonough has been a portrait in deranged malevolence each week, insinuating himself in the lives of his new neighbors and throwing vague suspicion off of himself by driving away Mrs. McCluskey, not to mention framing Porter Scavo. But judging by the way he talks to his dead family with increasing frequency, and the fact that the season has to end sometime, we expect some serious stuff to go down pretty soon. Here's a few ways we think he's gonna get revenge.

The 5 Most Horrifying Real Housewives of OC Reunion Moments

The 5 Most Horrifying <I>Real Housewives of OC</I> Reunion Moments So the Crippling Insecurity Summit aired last night, and it was slightly more horrifying than even I expected. Tamra in particular was in rare form, wasn't she? Anyway, the crispy hair, crispier skin and even emptier lives were on parade for all to mock on the RHOC reunion, and while they may not have actually gotten up to smack each other like the Atlanta girls did (and then chicken out, unfortunately), the allegations were much more plentiful and hardly any of them made any sense. So I guess it's a draw. Either way, can we put Tamra in jail already?

Dollhouse: Why You Shouldn’t Quit Watching (Yet)

<i>Dollhouse</I>: Why You Shouldn’t Quit Watching (Yet)

So it didn't get off to a great start, but after checking out two more episodes, "The Target" (aka Ep. 2 which airs Friday) and "Gray Hour" (aka Ep. 4 which airs March 6), I'm sort of optimistic... at least cautiously. It is from the mind of Joss Whedon, which means due to my undying fandom that I will sit and watch every episode no matter how crappy... though to be fair, none of the episodes of Dollhouse I've seen are really that terrible, it just occasionally dips into the procedural realm, or makes things utterly perplexing. Read on for some reasons I'll be watching (not really too spoilery, just some big highlights).

Doll Parts: Eliza Dushku Dishes on Life in the ‘House

by Mindy Monez February 11, 2009 3:05 pm
<I>Doll</I> Parts: Eliza Dushku Dishes on Life in the ‘House Dollhouse finally premieres this Friday, and can you tell we're excited? Of course you can. We're bouncing off the walls. We've gone off our Ritalin. We are losing it. It's mass hysteria in the TWoP offices! And in order to quell the storm, I hopped on a conference call yesterday with the show's lovely leading lady, Eliza Dushku herself, to get the scoop on all things Joss, Echo and everything else Dollhouse.

All Dolled Up: Joss Whedon Talks Dollhouse

All Dolled Up: Joss Whedon Talks <i>Dollhouse</I>

While I didn't get to Comic Con's Dollhouse panel because the line was totally insane, and while I didn't get a lottery ticket to get to meet Joss Whedon in person, I did get to participate in a conference call with him on Friday, and that was sort of the next best thing. Well, at least I got to watch the first episode in the comfort of my own office, so that's something. The Buffy mastermind dished about his new series, where he's paired up again with Buffy badass Eliza Dushku, which is a twisted tale about a group of men and women (most notable Dushku's Echo) who get programmed to perform tasks by a company and then regularly have their memories wiped. These girls can be anything you want them to be, but will the show be what fans want? Or will it get axed early like Whedon's other Fox series Firefly. Whedon talked about that and much more in his call. Here are the highlights.
