FOX Goes Grindhouse / Dustin Rowles

Trade News | February 5, 2009 | Comments ()


Lookit, FOX network. I don’t appreciate that you dumped Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse” on Friday nights (debuting next week), but you know what: I’m still going to watch the show. Whedon always gets the benefit of the doubt, even if I’m not particularly keen on the premise. As for “Dollhouse’s” Friday partner, “The Sarah Connor Chronicles”: Whatever. Decent pilot, but that’s as far as I ever got, though I understand that show has a few fans, although I doubt a move to Friday is going to gain it any.

But damnit, FOX: You’re not going to win over the “geek” crowd by running a “Dollhouse/Sarah Connor Chronicles” Grindhouse promo. That’s just lame, y’all. Lame. I got nothing against Grindhouse cinema — it’s great. But it’s also a product of a different era, and lower budgets. It doesn’t ring particularly true when Sumner Redstone’s fucking network is trying to capitalize on its geek capitol. Brother, please. It’s just embarrassing, and it does a huge disservice to our boy Whedon.
