Last time I tried to basically use the same format as my book Let’s Reads, summarising the events of the episode scene-by-scene. As it turns out that doesn’t work too well in a TV show where there might be five different story lines running simultaneously and it ended up being really long and wordy. So this time I’m going for more of a summary approach, which will hopefully be shorter and more to the point. Let me know if you like it.
After the chart-topping success of my Patrick Rothfuss Let’s Read series (“more penis jokes than you can shake a lute at” -Time Waster Magazine, “It certainly is a blog” -Blogging Monthly) I decided to start another one to run simultaneously, because I just can’t get enough of making fun of things on the internet.
Instead of another book I decided on a tv series. And if I was going to do a tv series the obvious choice would be a Joss Whedon show. And of course if we’re talking Joss Whedon there’s really only one option- Firefly!
But then I remembered that something about the look and feel of Firefly makes me never want to watch, think about or be in the same room as that show ever again. So I chose Dollhouse instead.
Some caveats before we start. I’m going into this totally blind- I don’t know anything about this show beyond (sort of) the basic premise. Like I said with my Name of The Wind series, this isn’t necessarily going to turn into a Lets’s Hate. I could very well end up falling in love with this show and singing it’s praises in every post.
That, um, didn’t happen with the first episode. But it still might! Also this took way longer to make then my usual posts so don’t expect them on a regular schedule.
