This is turning into tv week here on U-Holler. Before I get started: Look! It's Helo on the far left! He's wearing a suit so that means that he's serious.
But who cares about all that? We're getting Joss Whedon and Eliza Dushku back on the wee screen come January. Sounds like a the perfect birthday present for me. Oh, being a Capricorn never stops being amazing, especially when I'm rolling change or selling blood.
Everybody and their bastard cousin has already blogged about the premise of Dollhouse, so I'm going to skip those particulars and beg Joss to give us some lesbians. Joss! Dude, my man, PLEASE give us lesbians!!! Yes, I know, I'm a shameless beggar at the Whedon banquet of goodness, but hear me out. The man knows how to write women, especially gay women. Most men, and yes Judd Apatow - I'm staring daggers at you - have no clue how to write believable dialog for a woman, and they draw the characters so emotionally needy and train wrecky (Ally McBeal slinks to mind) that you just end up tossing a Prada slipper at the teevee.
Of course, regardless of how the characters on Dollhouse identify sexually, I'll be tuning in. I can't wait to see how this little Whedon-world is going to unfurl. Still, I'm betting that at some point the lesbian gets rolled out.
