Oh, You Great Big Beautiful Dollhouse

You might think that it would be difficult to create a relevant blog about TV shows that have been off the air for several years, but not so. I have lots of stuff I can ramble on about, endlessly, if necessary. But instead of going back and talking about stuff long past today, I want to talk a little bit about Joss Whedon’s new show, Dollhouse, which is coming to Fox in January, 2009, and will air on Monday nights at 8 pm, leading into 24. I plan to keep talking about it, too, so that more people find out about it and watch it.

I admit that I’m a little worried. Not about the show, cause that will rock, but about Fox. I just can’t bear for Fox to kill off another show once I fall in love.
