    Fuck fox , this is absurd. I haven't even watched it yet (dvr'd) They could fuck anything up. Shows get sent to Friday night to die.

    It was good and showcased Dushku's hotness, really nothing to dislike about the show.

    Haven't seen it yet, still downloading, but from what i've seen it's decent. I still don't get the whole Joss Whedon ball-sucking though :dunno:
    Astonishing was good (not oh-my-fucking-god-this-shit-is-trippin'-yo!-good), Buffy was decent at best and the only one i can say is really good was Serenity/Firefly.

    But i'll watch it and then we'll see. At least i'm not going into it with the rosy-tinted eyes some people are :hsughno:

    *edit*
    Okay, so i watched it and it seems to be quite a good beginning so far. Let's hope they get it better :bigthumb:

    that's what I immediately thought when I saw Terminator got moved to Friday...it won't be on much longer. Granted, I haven't kept up on the show (couldn't watch it in HD when the 2nd season started due to living situation), and I missed the first half of the season.

    But on the other hand...there will be something to watch on Fridays now that Atlantis and Survivorman are done.

    Dollhouse seemed OK to me.

    i refuse to watch it due to dushku, i don't care how hot she is. she can't act for shit, i'd rather watch joss walk behind and actual sex-doll and belt out her lines in a whiney girl voice.

    I guess I'm the only one that thought it was kind of meh. :dunno:

    It felt like Alias to me.

    Oh, and that bitch isn't as hot as they tried to make her out to be. And like void said, she's kind of a shitty actress.

    Just a notch above meh for me. I'm not much fan of the main girl, but i'll expect it to develop further and possibly do more with the story. I'll stick with it for now, but i expect it to be cancelled soon enough anyway :hsd:

    Yeah, I'm still going to watch and hope it develops into something, but it's Whedon, it's Fox, and it'll be canceled. :hs:

    I'm doubting he'll have a series that can top Firefly. :(

    I am hoping that like most shows the first is a bit 'meh' and it gets better

    It's not just you. I'm underwhelmed and I forgot just how shitty Dushku is.

    some of the plot was a bit too telegraphed though.

    and I :rofl:ed when they had the actor from battlestar doing a boxing flashback as a metaphor. oh and the mention of olmos :bowrofl:

    pilot wasn't great, but I'm going to keep downloading. I mean watching. :hsughno:

    fox doesn't know how to run a television channel, in a fair world it would have been out of business faster than the WB but somehow they keep failing upwards
