Updates – Joss Whedon cursed?

November 17th, 2009

dollhouseI’m sure about it now, Joss Whedon is cursed! There is no other answer to why his shows, brilliant as they are, keep getting cancelled. Dollhouse has now fallen to the same fate as Firefly :( . We all knew this day was comming but it still sucks. But please don’t stop trying Mr Whedon. All the episodes of season two will air, with the season finale working as a series finale. On the bright side, Buffy the Vampire Slayer is now airing in Sweden again on TV400, two episodes every weekday after 16.25. And you can still catch Dollhouse on TV400 Saturdays at 20.00. TV4 Science fiction has started airing Babylon 5 again weekdays at 17.05, and starting today at 20.15 they’re bringing back Star Trek Enterprise! And don’t miss Star Trek Original Series, weekdays at 18.35.

In other news, the long wait is over.  Star Trek is now out on DVD and Blu-ray! And in a couple of days so will Terminator Salvation. So now we geeks can all fill the dark November afternoons with bonus material and re-watch these awesome schmears.

Take your Vulcan cynicism and bury it with your repressed emotions.

Chuck will be back!

May 19th, 2009

Good news for all Chuck fans! Chuck will be back with a third schmear season, with 13 episodes. It’s not a full season but hey, it’s better than nothing :) There will however be some cut-backs, some writers and/or actors may not be returning with the series, but as long as Chuck is back I’m happy.

It also looks like Dollhouse will be given a second chance, finally FOX gets something right.
Castle will also be back, along with new eps of Scrubs, which frankly confuses me a bit. I think they made a good ending to the 8th season, and it would make a good ending to the series. Keeping it going any further might not be such a great idea in my mind.

Anyways, this fall is saved with my favorite spy and the dolls coming back :)

Say it isn’t so

chuckSo today I woke up happy, it’s Saturday and the weather outside is schmear. And then…

I just read an article on tv.com about the top 10 shows in danger of getting canceled and well, if the rumors are true it’s not very good news. On the list there were shows like Cold Case (ok, maybe that wouldn’t be so bad), Knight Rider (expected) and My name is Earl. So far not so bad, but then we have Terminator: The Sarah Connor ChroniclesReaper, Castle, Dollhouse and topping the list at number one is Chuck. Why? Why cancel shows that have barely started, and why Chuck, one of the best shows on right now?

Read the article here, if you want that is..

I hope these are just rumors and that the networks have some sense left in them not to cancel more brilliant shows before there time.

This is NOT awesome!

They can be anyone you want…

dollhouse-cast-photo-whedonAfter a few episodes it’s time to review Joss Whedon’s newest creation Dollhouse. The series follows Echo (Eliza Dushku, played Faith in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel), an active at the dollhouse, a place where dreams and fantasies come true. The idea is that these actives as they are called are ”blank slates” and can be inprinted with what ever personality and qualities the client wants. After the mission/engagement is over all their memories along with the personality is erased.

The storyline follows Echo on her missions but also the people running the dollhouse and the backstory that’s been unraveling in the first episodes about the active Alfa, an active gone wrong. We’ve also seen the cop Paul Ballard, who tries to find the dollhouse even though noone thinks it exists. I don’t want to spoil anything so I’ll stop there.

Like most of Whedon’s creations he has created many exciting storylines weaved together to an addictive series. Being a Firefly-fan I hade high hopes for Dollhouse and so far I like it. Following the many storylines and a new mission in every episode the series has all the potential to keep up the interest of the viewer for at least a couple of seasons. And like many sci-fi series there have allready been some familiar faces. Paul Ballard is played by Tahmoh Penikett, also known as Helo from Battlestar Galactica, there’s Reed Diamond who played Jack Vasser (the brother) in Journeyman and in episode four (”Gray Hour”) we could see Tony Amendola, Master Bra’tac in Stargate SG-1 and so on.

I like Joss Whedon’s way to tell a story and so far the actors in Dollhouse have done a great job making this series one of the most promising sci-fi shows out there today. I’m hocked on Dollshouse and hope that it doesn’t get cancelled like Firefly (if you haven’t seen Firefly, do it now!). So far I would give it a 7/10, definitely a series worth watching!

Tonight another new series premiers, Castel, with the brilliant Nathan Fillion (Captain Mal Reynolds from Firefly). Check it out and there will be a review up here on schmear.me shortly.

Take my love, take my land, Take me where I cannot stand, I don’t care, I’m still free, You can’t take the schmear from me :D
