Possible good news?

So I'm hearing through the internets that the new Joss Whedon show Dollhouse is about to get good. I, like everyone who's not completely retarded, am a huge Joss Whedon fan. He gets it wrong some times, but when he's on, holy fuck! The man who gave us Firefly has so much credit in the bank he could turn out solid streams of pure poo for the rest of his career and I would lap up every last drop of it.

It will be a while before I can confirm or deny these rumors for all the many thousands who come here first to have their opinions made. The reason for this is that my bandwidth is much too shitty for Hulu, so I get my TV shows exclusively from Netflix which is the only really civilized option. I can't imagine going back to a world where things are "on" at a particular time and not at some other time. Anytime I talk about a show and someone asks me "what channel is that on?", it takes me a while to realize what they're talking about. There are people in the world who still wait for shows to get broadcast out to them on some kind of schedule. I can't imagine living that way, but you know, different fuckin strokes, as Arnold said.

But I won't go back to the unsanitary caveman days and die of bubonic plague while waiting for a show to be on at a certain time. I will put the show on my netflix queue and wait for the disc to come to me, like a civilized person.

So my views on Whedon's new show Dollhouse will not be available to the many readers of this blog until that happens.

But I will remind all of you of the fucking unbelievable shittiness that was the 2nd to last season of Angel and the amazing awesomeness of the last season. That is the reason why those of us with taste will sit through whatever Whedon puts out there. We know it will eventually be worth it.

Yes, those people and their archaic 'T.V. Channels.' Most likely counting the days on their abacus until the next drooling zombie episode of 'Everybody Loves Raymond' is released like an airborne sewage spill.
