So, what did everyone thing of evil Wash on Friday?

Also, I love Ballard, it's so weird to see Tahmoah playing an asshole, but he's good at it.

And hot, yegods he's hot.

And . . . Dollhouse has been renewed for next season! BOOYEAH!

I just watched the unaired episode of Dollhouse - "Epitaph One". Holy shit! What an utterly brilliant work of art. Bring on Season 2!





*spoiler*










"I found your friend". The way that scene was shot and lit was masterful; Amy Acker looked downright ethereal and has never looked better.

And it was nice to see Zack Ward again. Scut Farkus has come up in the world, part by part.

I just watched the 13th episode. So good. I can understand why it didn't air because it feels A LOT like a series finale, which seems smart given that the show might not have been renewed. I'd like to see more shows do this in the future. I doubt it's practical, but seeing this makes me think it's entirely possible and would give fans some sense of closure.

Highly recommend anyone who liked this show to check it out.

Whoa. Bold assertion. Truth be told, I haven't seen Firefly the series, just the film. BG-damn, one of the best TV dramas in many a-moon.

So, I guess gotta give Dollhouse a look-see.

I finished the last season this morning (at 3:330 a.m!) And ANY science fiction themed show that I watch..the bar is incredibly high and don't think it will be surpassed.

Firefly is only 11 episodes. Not even an entire season. It wouldn't take you long at all and I suggest you buy it because you will be watching it over and over again it's that good.

Had Firefly continued I don't think the same things people say about BG today would be being said at all. There wouldn't be any contest or room for debate.

BG fizzled out for a long time and I damn near stopped watching it. As it was I'd record an episode and not get around to watching it until Thursday night.

I will most likely buy the Firefly DVD. I did enjoy the film Serenity.

I'd suggest giving BG another go. In my most humble opinion, I think it was one of the best dramas on TV. period.

I own everything BG on DVD but have no desire to watch it again anytime soon.

Firefly I watch all the fuckin time and love it more each time. It was a mistake to watch Serenity before watching the series.

Can I have your BATTLESTAR dvds please? I'll trade you something for them. If you don't plan on watching them I haven't gotten around to buying them and I'd love to give them a home.

Very Happy



...just sayin'...

Laughing No I think they're happy right here. I'll get around to watching them again at some point. I have always wanted to watch it all the way through and now I can. I do have an extra Razor though. Wink

Oh, and FIREFLY is awesome in it's own way. I'd like to think FIREFLY and BSG are apples and oranges. They are more complimentary on the shelf next to each other than not. One is a fun humor filled western, another is a sometimes grim, subtext laden drama.

Both have neat spaceships.

It's win/win.
