Obviously, Dollhouse and My Own Worst Enemy share a universe.

My personal-favorite show starting with alien gibberish chanting (yes, more favorite than Farscape) to be remade/rebooted/sequeled (it's not clear).

If this goes as well as the BSG reboot, I'll finally get to wear my own version of Emily's actually-very-terrifying Halloween costume. Sadly, this has been a dream of mine for more than a decade, but no one would have gotten it.

To a Good Show You're Probably Not Watching. A Recap on the Creator's Blog.

Schizophrenia is not funny.
Schizophrenia is not heart-warming.
Both of the above go for all mental illness, and quadruply for schizophrenia.

I watch Criminal Intent as background noise, and I try and catch all of In Plain Sight, but I had no idea that the latter was a spin-off of the former.

COPS: Mardi Gras specials are half-hour long advertisements with the message "Mardi Gras sucks, stay home".

So the grand finale of the show is a handful of white guys, mostly old, looking at the "Natives" and joking about breeding with them. And again, when the decision is made to abandon their physical culture, technology, and displace the current inhabitants of ReallyEarthThisTime, it's still a mostly male planning-group. Yes, tell me again how this show is arguably non-racist, non-misogynistic, or non-ageist.

Oh, and as to the interminable denouement? Fuck it. It's a litany of the bad choices everyone made before the apocalypse, and it's not explanatory, just embarrassing -- for the characters, the actors, and the creators.

I'm honestly trying to come up with my usual post-BSG-I-actually-watched attempt-at-comedy post, but nothin' doin'. The thing fucking makes fun of itself, and what little isn't second-to-second self-parody is just so infuriating as film making and politics that I can't seem to bring myself to engage with it in any mode but angry disdain.

As it actually ends, the one ray of hope is that given the hominids we saw, they're SO FAR BEFORE the agricultural revolution that they obviously all die out within a decade or two, century at most, and the non-invading hominids actually get their chance, rather than being replaced by obnoxious space-perverts.

OK ACTUAL ENDING IS AN ANTI-ROBOT MONTAGE!

ANTI-ROBOT MONTAGE!

From the NYT:That sort of success carried into the convention hall Monday, when Nicolle Wallace, a senior McCain aide, gave a round of cable news interviews criticizing Mr. Obama as “not ready” with the Democrats’ elaborate convention stage as a backdrop.

She WOULD be a Republican, wouldn't she.
