I've been a bad fan. As my enthusiasm for Dollhouse grew larger, my posting about it dwindled to nothingness. I knew that the show would get better. Whedon's work always does. The people who abandoned ship early due to the "icky premise" should've known that Whedon himself would have been aware of the ickiness and would turn it to the show's advantage.
I'm following the actors on twitter (Eliza, Miracle, Dichen, sadly no Enver...) and feeling guilt because they need all the attention they can get. I stopped writing about it because a) there were too few comments on those posts and b) I got scared of cancellation. See, television has taught me not to trust it. Movies are easier for me to love. They're complete and forever. TV requires the assemblage of multiple itty bitty pieces. It requires the long haul and too many TV shows don't get anywhere close to being a complete experience due to early cancellations. Most TV shows are jigsaw puzzles with pieces missing. They're broken.
If you love Joss Whedon's stuff, you'll want to read his 7 Things I Love About Sci-Fi article. It's brill.
