Well then. I was already pretty excited for Deadpool, and that was before the movie added fanboy (hi!) favorite Morena Baccarin to the mix.
Ain’t this something to melt your heart, right hurr.
Us 21st Century Star-Children-Viewers watch our favorite shows across a variety of devices. Web browsers, and phones, and gaming consoles, and piston-powered steampunk machinations (wut?). Even as us Star Children have evolved both our minds and viewing habits, the way for measuring what is being watched has remained overly archaic. Good news! for those who have wept at the bedside of broken and dismissed television shows. Help is (maybe) on the way.
OMFG! Summer Glau, also known as the creepy fanboy wetdream River from Firely is joining the cast of Dollhouse.
According to the Hollywood Reporter:
“(Glau) will have a recurring role as Bennett, a Dollhouse employee who shares a secret past with Eliza Dushku’s Echo.”
Secret past? Can you say lesbian sex scenes interspersed with mind-numbing and heavy-handed exploration of identity? YES. Or probably not.
It’s ironic, right? Firefly gets canceled after one season, despite being excellent. Dollhouse, the biggest piece of shit I’ve watched on television in years gets renewed. Well done, Whedon zealots. You’ve saved this pile of high school philosophy and drama club dialogue. And your reward? Summer Glau! If anything, Whedon et company are doing a great fan service to the perennial virgins out there – getting them geeked out with appearances by first Felecia Day, and now Summer Glau. Get ready to fap, boys.
