Another "Dollhouse" Related Webcomic. Have the guys of "HijiNKS Ensue" lost their faith in "Dollhouse"?

Pretty hilarious Whedon worshiping church scenario. I think I'll go do my "Hail Buffy"s now.

Make sure to read the comments on the comic. Whedon scripture. No lie.
Scripture? Oh finally all those childhood years of sitting in church are coming in handy. Thanks to Psalm 51-

Have mercy on Whedon, O Critics,
And give us a chance to love;
Let us know characters with compassion
And blot out FOX transgressions.

Wash away iniquity like a wiped Doll
And cleanse like we’re scrubbing blood from Gucci.
For we know the plot transgressions,
But fear cancellation is before us.

Against only Hulu, have I sinned
And ‘evilly’ used a proxy server to watch it
I’m kind of sick of all the doom speak
Anyway- what qualifies you to judge?

The sacrifices of a Whedonite are a broken spirit
A grieving and contrite heart,
When he kills off characters I don’t despise.

Let’s all try to make Dollhouse prosper;
Build up the numbers of Nielson.
Then there will be righteous sacrifices,
Whole burnt offerings to delight you, like pie (spoilers?)
Then goats will be offered on your altar.

But David Fury costs extra…

*applause*. That was great, missb!
missb This made me laugh out loud:

Hahaha. I loved the whole thing, but think the end is brilliant. XD lmao.
My first readthrough of the comic, I totally thought he said, "Let us Fray."
Arrgh. Do NOT read the comments if you are trying, as I was, to stay unspoiled for the Alpha casting info.
Another accompanying blog blasting the show, but this comic is hee-larious so they get more leeway.

Fortunately, my faith in Joss is hardly blind.
O, yee of little Faith! ;)

The Vally of the Shadow of FOX sounds scary...
For Joss so loved himself, that he gave the world his first-begotten Slayer, that whosomever laid eyes on her would know nor est, but follow Joss wherever he would lead them.
I'd rather walk through Serenity Valley than the Valley of the Shadow of Fox.

Phew...thanks for the warning.
His writing staff, they comfort me...

Yes, they truly do. Hee! This is very funny and so true for many Whedon fans right now.
At least it's a heck of a lot funnier than the Penny Arcade comic. :) I really wish people would withhold their judgment awhile longer though. What do they want after 2-3 episodes ? *sigh*
That made me lawl. It definitely rings true for me and it's just plain clever (is what it is).
If you want pain, try sticking with Terminator: SCC. If Dollhouse lasts long enough, maybe there'll be an opening for Summer.

Eh, there are plenty of TV shows that are extremely good right from their first episode. Firefly comes to mind, though I'm thinking of course of the real first episode, the one that wasn't aired....

Most of Joss' shows get off to a slow start. That was fine more than a decade ago with Buffy, and nearly a decade ago with Angel, but slow-starts don't work in television anymore. I think that Joss really shines when it comes to long-arcs, but on an episode-to-episode basis, especially the initial episodes, he tends to fall kind of flat. At least in my opinion.
Sorry, guys. All this wait till the 6th episode! feels a little silly, especially in a world where the finest British series only run 6 eps a season.
My bigger fear is if Joss walks to Valley of the Shadow of Fox and don't wanna waist a visit and kill a character.

Isn't that a bit like saying "I know I've only read the first page of this novel, but that's enough to tell it's a waste of time; after all, there are prose-poems that are shorter than this!"

6-episode a year TV is a different kind of thing from 24-episode a year TV.
