And Joss's Streak Continues...

Looks like Joss Wheadon's Dollhouse is being canceled.

Felicia Day tweeted:
Man, day getting worse and worse. Found out my Dollhouse ep, #13 isn't gonna air. Only on DVD. Such a great part too. Thx Fox. :(
Thx all, to clarify seems like they'll air #12 as the finale and not air my ep #13 at all? So weird :( Ask @foxbroadcasting I guess?

(The first is found here and the second here.)

My feelings about this are mixed. I like the show the best when it deals with the FBI agent and the twistedness that goes on in the Dollhouse I really don't care about how the Dolls are used by people outside because that's not where the mystery is found. It's been getting better because the focus has be more inside than outside.

Guess we'll have to get the DVDs if we want to be sure who Alpha is and what his motives are.

2:51 EDIT: Tim Minear give an explanation of why only 12 episodes will be aired.

4:56 EDIT: E Online says:
A last, and very important, note: According to sources on the network side, the net's not picking up and airing "Epitaph One" has no bearing whatsoever on whether or not they pick up the series for a second season, a situation which, I'm told, is "100 percent in the decision phase." You can obviously believe them or not as you choose, but I take them at their word.

I take their word with a spoonful of Castor oil.

It's starting to seem... purposeful or something. Like some really sick marketing scheme. I don't understand it, otherwise.

I think they're afraid of a slow burn type show and only want "hits." (Or shows with "big" stars, like that awful Til Death that Brad Garrett was on.)

heels said...

Wait- you are talking about Fox, right? Were there "hits" that I was unaware of?

House, Prison Break, American Idol, The OC, Bones, 24

Those are off the top of my head.

Just because we don't watch 'em doesn't mean they're not popular.

But it should...
