IGN interview with Tahmoh Penikett. Talks about the what it was like working on Dollhouse, with Joss & the end of Battlestar Galactica.

Wow. I didn't think about that. We'll be watching him in TWO shows - possibly at the same time (in the same weeks, anyway) - in 2009.
I'm glad taht Tahmoh feels comfortable with Joss's (how many "s"s should be on that?) directing. I can't wait until the whole cast feels like one big family. It seems to always show on the TV. :)

This BSG thing sounds interesting. Maybe I'll give it a try in a couple of months. ;)
For the record, Joss's would be correct, at least according to the rules of style followed by the New York Times.

I love Tahmoh so much already. A smart, funny guy. And Canadian.

Korkster, you have no idea. Discovering it on DVD was like a religious experience for me, and I can't say that about many shows.
electricspacegirl, I know how you feel about BSG. But it took me two attempts to get into it. The first time I tried it, I started with S1, not realising I had to watch the miniseries first. Of course, the story made no sense, so I gave up 20 minutes into the first episode.

A few months later, I read that Joss was a big fan, so that was recommendation enough for me. I started with the miniseries and got so hooked I watched like 20 episodes of the show in a weekend.

'Highway to Heaven' ? ;)

Joss's is correct but by convention a lot of people leave off the last 's' when the word itself ends in 's' and that's also correct. Newspapers usually just have a house style for these things so that everything's consistent across different articles, writers etc.

I like the cut of this guy's jib, he's considered and smart, no wonder he and Joss hit it off. I think it's true what he says about BSG opening people's eyes about sci-fi too, that's why I don't embrace the idea that it's somehow not sci-fi that you sometimes see critics trot out. And I genuinely did like Helo from when he gave up his seat, whether Joss was joking or not, nice moment.

(seen one or two of 'The Cleaner', Grace Park's new show, and she's pretty good in it as a character that couldn't be further from Boomer/Sharon/8. Not sure about the show yet though, might not be my bag)
Yeah, Nebula1400, I had the same realization. It'll be weird enough seeing him on something other than BSG, but even weirder to see him doing it at the same time.
I don't know, Effulgent. I only watched the miniseries after having already seen the first 2 seasons. I think it's easy enough to know what's going on without seeing the miniseries.
I've been a BSG fan from day one and I've been a Whedon fan since I started watching Buffy somewhere near the middle of Season two. Then Jane Espenson started writing BSG and I almost crapped my pants. Then I hear about Tahmoh being on Dollhouse. Somehow my nerd stars must have aligned. Now if we can get Serenity II with Edward James Olmos as Mal and Zoe's war-worn mentor or something like that, I can die a happy nerd death.
