Joss Whedon Blogs About DOLLHOUSE Rumors

Joss Whedon, DollhouseHave you heard about the absolute mess over at the set of Fox’s midseason show, DOLLHOUSE? The set has been shut down, the network hates it, and show creator Joss Whedon is ready to walk because the show he pitched is nothing like the show that is being shot.

I know there’s been a lot of concern, various fabulous hues of panic alert readiness. So here’s the skinny. Some of the names have been changed.

    Interesting that after the kerfluffle in Supernatural fandom regarding how awful and embarrassing it is that a showrunner would have to address the fans about something show-related, we’re reminded that Joss tends to do just that from time to time, and I’m not seeing anyone wailing about how much the fandom sucks because Joss had to do that. Hmm, I have a post perculating…
