25 minutes till we see Dollhouse.

Gah, I'm stressed. I want this to be good -- not just!good, but joss!good. I want to fall in love with characters and recognize the Whedon cadences in the dialog and I want good ratings and and and.

I'm fairly certain it's not normal for the /fans/ to be nervous for a new show. *bites nails*

Joss Whedon rocks hardcore.

Okay, so that's not exactly news. But he continues to rock, and "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" (teaser here) sounds like all kinds of fun. And it's JOSS. And there's NATHAN FILLION. There's really no bad here.

From Joss on Whedonesque:

1) Why, Joss? Why? Why now, why free, why us?

Once upon a time, all the writers in the forest got very mad with the Forest Kings and declared a work-stoppage. The forest creatures were all sad; the mushrooms did not dance, the elderberries gave no juice for the festival wines, and the Teamsters were kinda pissed. (They were very polite about it, though.) During this work-stoppage, many writers tried to form partnerships for outside funding to create new work that circumvented the Forest King system.

Frustrated with the lack of movement on that front, I finally decided to do something very ambitious, very exciting, very mid-life-crisisy. Aided only by everyone I had worked with, was related to or had ever met, I single-handedly created this unique little epic. A supervillain musical, of which, as we all know, there are far too few.

The idea was to make it on the fly, on the cheap – but to make it. To turn out a really thrilling, professionalish piece of entertainment specifically for the internet. To show how much could be done with very little. To show the world there is another way. To give the public (and in particular you guys) something for all your support and patience. And to make a lot of silly jokes. Actually, that sentence probably should have come first.

*has no whedonverse icons anymore* *sadface*

This just keeps getting better -- Tahmoh Penikett (Helo on Battlestar Galactica) has been cast as an FBI agent trying to disprove the urban legend of the Dollhouse, and a romantic foil for Eliza Dushku's character. *rubs hands gleefully*

Also, this is a spoiler, but one that I don't think anyone's going to be able to avoid hearing about it: SPOILER for Prison Break season 4 )

In conclusion, Thursdays without Supernatural should not be allowed. :(

So, the earliest appointment I could get with my doctor is 2:30. There's nothing on tv, and none of my dvds is looking particularly attractive atm. I can't sleep because I can't breathe, and I'm looking for something to take my mind off that fact for awhile. So, what should I check out? G'head, pimp me your favorite fandom (aside from SPN, Jericho, Buffy/Angel/Firefly, X-Files and ST, naturally, since I'm good in those departments *g*). I prefer TV at this point, I think, since I can easily DL an ep or two, and if it's not working for me I can always look for something else.

My all-knowing flist, what should I watch? Tell me in 100 words or less (or, hell, more, if you're in the mood). Show me pictures that illustrate what's awesome about your show. I'm open to pretty much anything. What'll it be? SGA? Torchwood? Moonlight? Battlestar Galactica? Blood Ties? Something else?

The crew discusses Mal's plan to kick Simon and River off the ship.

Kaylee: ...I carried such a torch [for Simon.] When we could've... Going on a year now, I ain't had nothing twixt my nethers weren't run on batteries.
Mal: *twitches* Oh, God! I can't know that!
Jayne: I could stand to hear a little more.

<3 this Jossverse, as well as...oh, hell, every single other one.

I do miss the rounder Kaylee. And randomly,does anyone else think some Fanty/Mingo 'cest would be awfully pretty? In a slimy sorta way?


Oh, God, Supernatural, come back soon. *headdesk*

Joss Whedon at the WGA rally in Boston

Part 1:

Part 2:
fangirl_says: (SPN Fans support the writers)
Joss Whedon: I have news...that I may have news.

The point of the meeting was that the WGA is aware of – and a little blown away by – the passion, tenacity, and organizational savvy of the online community. The “Jericho” nuts are the stuff of legend. Whedonesque and the creation of Fans4Writers were spoken of in awed whispers. I’m not kidding: one of the WGA workers asked me, “So, your fans. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?” I swear, having you guys in my corner is like being friends with Zorro. People in the community are amazed.

We met to see if there was some way for US to organize the way YOU have – to use the nettyweb to show the studios that there are no longer two sides to this struggle; there are three. The audience has a voice, and a right to be heard. We talked about different ideas that have been floated by fans to make some kind of nut-like show of unity and support. How can we do something so noticeable it might even get into the mainstream press? I’ll let you know when it’s worked out – should be within a day or so. Should be fun, too. Hell, it was fun just being in a room full of smart writers again, pitching ideas. (Also fun was typing “Hell”. Makes me sound butch.)


The point is twofold. The first is that we expect this to take a long time. We want to make an impression NOW, but we also want to keep thinking of ways to spread awareness and keep you all engaged and, frankly, entertained. Because the second point is that there was no one in that room who didn’t understand that they were there BECAUSE OF YOU, because you guys have already proven yourselves not just dedicated fans but an active, forceful community. Take a moment to be all up in yourself. Now get over yourself. Now doubt yourself. Now hug yourself. Now touch your knee – Hah! Didn’t say “Simon says”. Like, ever. FOOLS! It’s you unauthorized-knee-touching fools who are proving that the internet is indeed the line in the sand (“…must be drawn Heah! This fah! No fuhther!”), for it’s the one medium the congloms don’t control. Televised news is largely ignoring us, the print media is eating Nick Counter’s astonishing lies like candy they get paid to eat, but you upon the ether… you haven’t been silent and you can’t be silenced. Go ahead. Touch that knee. Simon be damned.

I may love Joss Whedon just a little bit.

*With the utmost respect to Mr. Whedon, of course.

I'm writing this as I read the flist, getting more and more gobsmacked at exactly how awesome Eric Kripke really is, and how much more there is to Supernatural than even we fans realized.

Spoilers through SPN 3X04 -- Sin City )
