    Some may read your post as being supportive of the decision to go with the more lucrative program, Dollhouse, which is apparently less costly per episode than Terminator:SCC. Is that what you meant?

    No, nothing that sophisticated. Just that Dollhouse is crap and Sarah was entertaining, IMHO of course. :lol:

    True, they could cut the budget in half with 6 less pant suits and show the chair room only once and episode.:lol:

    I was shocked, I mean I thought for sure this show was doomed when it was first announced. I mean Fox, Whedon, Friday Night and you put it all together and surely it was a foregone conclusion on how it was going end. I've heard one of the big reasons that the show got picked up though was Eliza has some kind of long term development contract with Fox and if they canceled this they would've had to pay her to sit at home while they figured out what was next for her. Anyway i'll continue to watch, it didn't start out great, but it has been getting better as it moves along, plus Joss still has some Firefly cred that he hasn't quite used up w/ me yet.

    She's had that deal with FOX since Tru Calling. It's why she hasn't had to work since Tru Calling was yanked.

    Pretty good deal if you ask me!

    Joss' shows have always pulled in huge DVD numbers. And, the ratings on Dollhouse have been better than T:TSCC especially considering the huge bump DVRs ratings were giving the show. It was getting something like a 40% bump in DVR watching, and that's only including the first 3 days after the original air date. I'm sure there are at least a couple of people like me who watch that show 5-6 days after the original air date. But, then again, I always skip through the commercials. I love that Dollhouse would tell us how long each commerical break was. 90 seconds? no problem, three quick hits on skip and I'm ready to go! :)

    The problem is that DVD sales, in general, have been slipping badly; the value of the DVD channel isn't what it used to be.
