The Avengers now has the biggest opening weekend ever in the USA. I'm getting a bit teary eyed over here - it's so amazing to see Joss getting the kudos and recognition that he deserves after all these years. Remember Serenity making $4 million on opening weekend? What a change...

(and yeah, I know that higher ticket prices and 3D tickets have a hand in it, and I'd love to see an updated top 10 box office movies that accounts for inflation and changes in ticket prices, but even so it's a damned high number)

Anyway, congrats to Joss, and I hope this opens more doors for him and also makes people see how amazing he is (this and Cabin in the Woods). I do hope we still see smaller projects from him, though, like Dr. Horrible 2 and maybe another TV show. I am very much looking forward to Much Ado, anyway - hopefully they will get it into theatres sooner rather than later...

Oh, and speaking of Joss, I'm finally watching Dollhouse. I watched the first 4 eps when it first aired, but then I was travelling in Australia and just never caught up when I got home. I've watched the first 6 eps now, and am really enjoying it. As I'd heard before, ep6 definitely amps everything up, but I actually enjoyed the first 5 eps pretty well, too. I'm intrigued. :) I've managed to remain mostly unspoiled for the show, other than a few character deaths (damn).

Anyway, I finally get to see The Avengers tonight, so yay! I am super excited. It's going to be awesome...

Dollhouse got renewed!

Haven't been watching the show, beyond the first few eps, but planning to soon... and in spite of the mixed reviews I've heard, I'm glad that it was renewed! I've been hearing good things about the second half of the season, and either way.. it's a Joss show, I can't help but want it to succeed. :)

Now just waiting on Chuck, which I really hope gets renewed.. *crosses fingers* And still holding out the vaguest hope for T:tSSC, but it's doubtful... never did get to see the last few eps since I came here. *sigh* Eventualy I will!

Dollhouse appeared in my TiVo's listings today and I just set up a season pass for it... been checking every day for the last few days for it. :) Just doing that makes me SO excited - Joss Whedon is BACK! WOO HOO! It's been coming up to 5 years since Angel ended... far too long with no new Joss on our televisions. :( Here's hoping it's good (I'm not too worried... first ep's getting mediocre-decent reviews, with comments like "a lot of potential", so I think once it hits its stride it'll be as good as the others. Both Buffy and Angel took awhile to hit their strides, after all.) Now we just have to hope that it survives. *crosses fingers*

Other things to be excited for: Heroes tonight!! Woo hoo!!!! *bounce* Trailers are freakin' me out, though... looks like it's going to be a dark Volume 4. Yikes. And I should probably go read a summary of the last ep, it's been about 2 monthes... Also: new Chuck tonight, and House's 100th ep! Wow... hard to believe. :)

Can I get a resounding FUCK YOU to FOX?

Thanks guys. ;)

Honestly, though... shitty news. Terminator was already on the verge of cancellation (though it did get a full order, so yay! Maybe it's in better shape than we thought), and this oughta push it over the edge. And, well... we all remember what happened LAST time a new Joss show premiered Friday nights. *sigh* Good luck, Dollhouse.
