Comic Con 2009: Joss Whedon & Dollhouse

July 26, 2009

dollhouseJoss Whedon rocks my world. I’ll admit, I am not a huge Dollhouse fan. Of everything he’s done, this is probably at the bottom of the list of my favorites.


We got to see the never-aired 13th episode of Dollhouse, and then entire world has changed. Felicia Day is in it, and Zack Ward (“Scut Farkus staring out at us with his yellow eyes. He had yellow eyes! So, help me, God! Yellow eyes! ” – I love “A Christmas Story”) and depending on how season two starts, it could be like a whole new show, so I’m excited.

After the screening, Joss and Eliza Dushku talked and answered questions, and Eliza came off much better this time than she did the day before on the Wonder Women panel.

Joss said that yes, he very much wants to continue with another Dr. Horrible (yay!), and that Firefly lives through the comics, including a series on Shepherd Book, so maybe we’ll finally find out what his story was.

Best line of the night:

Audience member asks some question about time paradoxes and whether playing with time on Dollhouse could be too confusing for audiences.

Joss: “I think as long as we don’t send anyone to feudal Japan, we’ll be ok.”

And the great thing was, the whole big geeky crowd got it and went crazy with laughter and applause.

Did I mention that Joss Whedon is incredibly funny? YouTube this one if you can find it.
