Pre-emptive fun

Joss Whedon created the TV shows Buffy, Angel and Firefly. Firefly was cancelled after a few weeks and has done fabulously, unbelievably well ever since on DVD. It was popular enough, despite being cancelled after half a dozen episodes, to warrant a movie sequel: the critically acclaimed Serenity. Joss Whedon has a new series in the works: Dollhouse. In my snarky way, I made these predictions for its roll-out. It seems l'm not the only one who thinks this way. There's already a campaign to stop Dollhouse being cancelled. It won't be on TV for another eight months, but fans are fed up with good shows being pulled and they intend to begin campaigning for it to be saved long before some moronic TV exec has the bright idea of terminating another piece of original and enduring television. I love that idea. It amuses and encourages me.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
