Avengers Be Assembling

I’m trying not to get too excited about this, but the pics from ComicCon have given me a raging nerd-on:

Dollhouse – It Is Time

I’m a huge Joss Whedon fan.  Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse.  Buffy, Toy Story, Alien, Serenity.  Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.  Television,  Movies, Comic Books, Internet, Musicals.  Avengers!!!!  Excuse me, I need a moment to myself.

Okay, that’s better.  I liked Dollhouse a lot when it started, and I really like it in the middle of the first season, and I really, really liked it when it ended.  I didn’t quite fall in love with it, but I think it is just that I wouldn’t let myself.  The writing was on the wall.  Joss’s “second chance” with full confidence and backing was about as reliable as a promise from Ethan Rayne.

Don’t even get me started about Firefly….I blame myself entirely (well, I blame my wife 20%).  I was so skeptical of the premise and my wife was against anything sci-fi.  And anything sci-fi on a Friday night.  Okay, so I blame my wife 90%.  But I should have fought harder.

Anyway, I decided to bank season 2.  I knew what was happening.  No future for you, and all that.  Plus I live in Canada and my igloo does not register on the American “should we keep it or cancel it” scale.  Now, many many month later I’m ready to go back to the well.  I’m starting at the beginning.  That’s season 1, episode 1, for those that can’t keep up.  I’m going to watch it.  I’m going to write about it.  I’m going to hold my breath and pray for 2012, when the Avengers movie will save the world from Roland Emmerich.
