Dollhouse, destined for Fox graveyard?

Posted by BenSpark on February 28, 2008

Joss Whedon and Tim Minear’s new show titled Dollhouse is going to be on Fox. While the show sounds promising and interesting with a ton of potential I have to wonder about the mental state of Tim Minear in going back to Fox again for one of his shows. He’s been used and abused by FOX several times in the past (Firefly, The Inside, Wonderfalls, Drive ring a bell.)

There has to be some sort of shelter or foundation set up for Network abuse victims. Minear, break free from the circle of abuse that you have been riding the past several years. It is like taking something like dangerous diet pills and hoping that this time, this one time things will work out and you will be happy. Seriously Tim, get your head checked. When not shop the show to the Sci Fi network or the CW. Even USA takes more chances than FOX. Fox is the lowest common denominator network with the basest set of viewers. The smartest thing on that network is “Are you Smarter than a Fifth Grader” And that ain’t saying much.

Dollhouse sounds really interesting, here is the synopsis.

“Dollhouse” follows a top-secret world of people programmed with different personalities, abilities and memories depending on their mission.

After each assignment — which can be physical, romantic or even illegal — the characters have their memories wiped clean, and are sent back to a lab (dubbed the “Dollhouse”). Show centers on Dushku’s character, Echo, as she slowly begins to develop some self-awareness, which impacts her missions.
