Apparently Fox is considering renewing Dollhouse for a second season. And they will if they know what’s good for them (i.e., not having hard core Joss Whedon fans finally snap and firebomb the lot of them). As with most shows, it started off with the speed and grace of a cancerous space slug before finding its stride to awesomeness.
But fans are nothing if not patient and persistent in giving shows a chance when networks won’t — which makes it all the more frustrating when they puss out and cancel them. *cough* Firefly *cough* Roar *cough* Family Guy when it was still funny *cough* Futurama *cough* etc. Fox is an especially frequent offender.
If Fox wants to save this show, great. But they have to do 3 things in addition to simply bring it back:
1) Rerun the entire season later this summer, right before the start of next season (if there is one) on the night they intend to air Season 2.
2) Move the show from Friday. Weekend nights are death.
3) Fucking keep it there. None of this garbage where they change nights every week and no one but the most devoted fans knows when it’s on. If they pick Tuesday, it’s Tuesday for the rest of the season. It’s not rocket surgery, folks.
