TWoP 10: Reasons Why House Is Disappointing This Season

TWoP 10: Reasons Why <I>House</I> Is Disappointing This Season We love Hugh Laurie, and we love House, but this season has been kind of a mess. Last season wasn't without its problems, it took some hits for trying to add in so many wannabe House's and for killing CTB (or Amber, if you must) but at least they were trying something a little bit out there... and the cases were cool. House trying to save a woman at the North Pole? Cool. Parasites? Always awesome. Overdose caused be something as stupid as tonic water? Brilliant. But aside from Breckin Meyer seeing people like Picassos, there haven't been any super memorable cases. So after 100 episodes, we've got to wonder, is this procedural getting to be a little too procedural? And for the love of god, will they ever remember whose name is in the title of the show?

Lost and Dollhouse Goodies, Just in Time for the Holidays

<I>Lost</I> and <I>Dollhouse</I> Goodies, Just in Time for the Holidays

It is a slow news week out there in TV land and I just can't bring myself to talk about Speidi and their non-wedding in any depth. That's why we've got awesome recappers. But in poking around the wilds of the internet, I spotted these two treats, that I thought you all may enjoy. Especially if you are in desperate need of a wrapping break, or a family break.

New Dollhouse Trailer!

New <i>Dollhouse</i> Trailer! The wait for Dollhouse to premiere has just been agonizingly slow, hasn't it? I feel like we've been anticipating this thing since the late '40s. Anyway, a new trailer has been cut for the show, presumably to reflect the re-shot and re-written pilot, and it definitely looks good. (But really, what can you tell from a 60 second trailer? Just saying.) Eliza Dushku looks incredible, and she certainly can kick ass, can't she? She does a little kung fu, wears a lot of skimpy clothing, and even cracks a safe! Unfortunately, the trailer doesn't give a hard premiere date -- just a "Coming Soon to Fox" -- but Facebook tells me it's coming January 5. And Facebook knows everything.

Oh No! Desperate Housewives Gale Harold in Hospital

Oh No! <I>Desperate Housewives</I> Gale Harold in Hospital We normally don't blog about this kind of thing, but we're making an exception because I just love Gale Harold. And the actor who can make us believe that he is actually in love with Teri Hatcher's annoying Susan was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash. Not a lot of details, but I'm seriously hoping he's OK. (And so is DeAnn, and not just because Desperate Housewives will be more painful for her to weecap if he's not on it.) The former Queer as Folk star is a favorite of mine (I just got around to stop calling him Brian), so fingers crossed that he's OK. Sending out well wishes and good thoughts, and prayers. That's all.

Desperate Housewives: Season 4

Desperate Housewives: Season 4

There's a good amount of content packed into the fourth-season set of Desperate Housewives, which should come as good news to viewers who were drawn into this season by new regulars Dana Delaney (formerly of China Beach), Nathan Fillion (Firefly), Gary Cole (Office Space) and Justine Bateman (Family Ties). ...Okay, so maybe Justine Bateman didn't draw anybody in. Still, a lot of talent was added to an already talent-packed show, and the DVD set doesn't disappoint. Here are the special features you can find under the Sizzler Steakhouse-style cover of the "Sizzling Secrets" edition... which seems to be the only version available. Apparently, non-sizzling just isn't an option with this show.

TWoP 10 Reasons Joss Whedon Fans Should Be Nervous About <I>Dollhouse</I>

We're excited that Joss Whedon put his show on halt when he started seeing poor-quality scripts come across his desk. We're all about making the show not suck... but does a big change before the show even debuts spell trouble for the show? We hope not, because there's not a hell of a lot we enjoy more than watching Eliza Dushku kick people's ass. Unless it is Jennifer Garner or Angelina Jolie kicking people's asses.

The Creative Process That Brought You <I>The House Bunny</I> is Coming to ABC Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten "Kiwi" Smith, the ladies who penned 10 Things I Hate About You, Legally Blonde and The House Bunny, are currently developing a series with ABC about their creative process, friendship and, as ABC Studios (hilariously) puts it, their "(mis)adventures in Hollywood." I'd have gone all out and said "(miss adventures)" instead to really drive the point home, but that's just me. Apparently the creative process they speak of is some crazy champagne-and-therapy marathon, which sounds simultaneously awesome, teary, and expensive, which... kind of sounds like it would make a great series? Am I crazy, or does this thing actually sound good? Let's get into it.

Dollhouse Fans Ready for the Worst

<i>Dollhouse</I> Fans Ready for the Worst

Now this is what I called being prepared. Joss Whedon loyalists are tired of being burned by Fox who caused Whedon's Firefly to go down in a blaze of glory by pulling it off the air in its first season. The devotees have banded together in support of Joss's new midseason (as in January 2009!) series Dollhouse which also stars awesome Buffy alum Eliza Dushku. These crazies, er, fans are campaigning harder than Hillary Clinton, and arranging viewing parties and creating at cult-like buzz about a show that no one has even seen yet! Part of me admires these nut jobs, er, fans for using the power of the internet to support their favorite TV guru, and since the clips of this show that were shown at the Fox upfront look kick ass, they shouldn't be disappointed by the series when it eventually airs.

House of Pain

<I>House</I> of Pain

I must be a glutton for punishment, or really just in need of a good cry, because I'm watching the season finale of House again. I would like to make it clear that I don't cry at TV shows frequently. It really takes a lot, but there was something so poignant and heartbreaking about this particular episode that I just caved to the watery eyes and grabbed some tissues. Sara M does a fabulous job of recapping the entire episode, but if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend watching the episode below before you read about it. Even if you aren't a big fan of the series, your heart might melt just a little bit, as the show takes a break from its typical procedural style and goes out on a limb with a trippy concept. Oh, and if nothing else, check out Anne Dudek in that fierce red pantsuit, she looks freaking amazing. I'm totally jealous. Best thing that ever happened to Cutthroat Bitch, aka Amber, was for her not to get the job working for House, so she could wear fabulous clothes and not be stuck in a white coat or scrubs all the time.
