Huh. Heroes seems to be threatening to get good again, which is unexpected. And Dollhouse starts on Friday - I have no idea whether to get my hopes up or not.

Something that IS good is The Big Bang Theory. Geek sitcom glee! I can't believe I managed to miss this somehow, but I happened to work on one of the second-season eps the other day, and now I'm racing through watching the first season. It's very funny - especially if you know a lot of geeks, probably. Most of my friends ARE Sheldon and Leonard. (So am I, for that matter.) Nice to see Johnny Galecki again - I always loved him in Roseanne - and to see him working with Sara Gilbert again. YAY.

And the theme song is by the Barenaked Ladies and is great.

I was playing Worms 4 last night too, which was "interesting", since I've only ever played original, 2D Worms. Although I have played that a lot. Once you get the hang of the 3D-ness and camera angles and things, it is still Worms, so it's obviously awesome. Oh, the fun you can have with a sentry gun. And I didn't lose as badly as I might have, since laerad and mind_expander were too busy attacking each other to notice me, mwahahaha.

I've been getting my hopes up about Dollhouse. I hope I'm not disappointed, but then I've tended to love everything else Joss has done.

Do you know what time it airs in North America on Friday? Just wondering when the torrents will be available.

I imagine torrents will appear a few hours after is has aired. Sometimes torrents appear before it has aired, although I have no idea how.

Unfortunately, it has been stuck in the Friday night slot of doom on Fox and is scheduled at the same time as Terminator. I give it 8 episodes at best.

Ah, my fellow cynic :D

Me too, but for some reason I'm worried about this. And they've put it in the Friday night Slot of Death (on Fox!), so I'm not sure if I want to get too attached to it anyway.

Seems to be on at 9 in the US, which usually means it turns up at half two or three UK time on torrent sites. Wiki says it's actually going to be shown about 10 hours earlier in Australia, so it might turn up earlier, but I can't seem to confirm that. Hmm.

Great, thanks for the timing info. I'll start looking for it Friday night to see if the Aussies have anything up. Which reminds me, I'm behind in my BSG downloads too. *fires up uTorrent*

Yeah, it's probably doomed, isn't it? The networks seem to hate anything Joss does. Maybe he should just start putting everything out in webisodes, a la Dr. Horrible. But I suppose he wants to make money or something. :o)

Bah, these people who want to, like, feed their family and stuff. Ridiculous. :) I am worried that it's doomed, it's a bad confluence of signs (Joss + Fox + SF + Friday night...)

Fox + Anything = CANCELLED. It seems to be a tactic to clear the schedules for another series of America's Top Supermodel's Got Talent While Dancing on Ice" or something, which costs a fraction of the price to make.

Seems like it. I don't know why they don't just make the crappy reality TV in the first place - and whether that would be better or worse in the long run for cult TV. Might mean another channel gives series a chance and they could last longer, might mean they never got on TV at all.
