Dollhouse Blows

I just got done reading Penny-Arcade’s 2009-2-27 post on Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse. I had high expectations for this show. I waited for the show to be ready for my Media Center to record on a regular basis. The promos looked interesting and he did have a reputation. A few weeks ago, that first show appeared in Recorded Shows on my computer. My wife and I fired it up. 20 minutes into the show, we looked at each other, said "This is crap. Let’s delete this thing from our regular recordings and go wash the dishes." Yes, dishwashing was more appealing than watching the remainder of the show. Furthermore, we had no desire to assault our senses with the show EVER AGAIN!!! The acting was horrible, the premise sucked (reminded by of My Own Worst Enemy without the decent actors). Maybe Whedon should listen to his comedy muse instead of the other ones. He wrote Buffy The Vampire Slayer. The translation to a TV show sucked. His recent work in 2008 on Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog was a riot! The guy knows funny! But, his serious stuff makes me shudder.
