Joss, David & Eliza in New FOX.com Promo. Joss Whedon, David Boreanaz & Eliza Dushku are featured in a new FOX promo for FOX.com that was posted on the FOX Broadcasting YouTube site.

Anyone else feel warily inclined to take this as a good omen?
It certainly would look a bit silly if they included Joss and Eliza in a brand new promo and then canned their show a week later...
I guess when you're on tv all the time you adjust to random people reaching into your personal space and adjusting your shirt.
Augh, I think I'm getting an ulcer worrying about whether or not Dollhouse will continue.

I stop by every day and my first thought is to check whether or not there's been an announcement.

I would like to take this as a good sign, but really, I just want to know what the future holds.
I also thought this was at least a positive sign. I noticed there was no TSCC.
Dude. I'm so effing excited right now. The shows represented in this promo (24, Bones, Family Guy, and House) have all pretty much been confirmed for the fall.

I am taking my chances and launching into fangirly delight, because this makes me feel soooooo sure that we're going to get that beautiful announcement...

OMGOMGOMG

(If nothing else, I expect my positive energy to make it true. XD)
DON'T JINX IT. If Murphy hears you, he will bring doom upon us all! *glare*
..Woah. I can't help seeing it as a good sign for Dollhouse too. The waiting is driving me crazy. Even moreso now.

Down, hopes, down. *flail*

Considering the fact that Summer Glau apparently has a movie contract waiting for her if the show is indeed done, I won't be too disappointed.
brinderwalt, do you have that translated into English? Movie contract with who? To do what? This is the first I have heard of this. Odd that a German website would get a scoop of this magnitude.

This promo is not for Fox. It is for Fox.com. Keep that in mind while planning the renewal party.
There is no translation yet (other than what you can get using something like Google Translate although I believe several native German speakers who frequent her official unofficial website have one floating around somewhere.
As I recall, she states that she has the script and would love to play the part, but is holding back from revealing what project it is or anything else about it until she knows officially about Terminator's fate.
Read: after May 18th.

Interesting. Thanks.
You know what would make a really good FOX.com promo? Changing the fox.com/dollhouse site to have finale info now that it's only a couple of days away.
ARGH. I too felt the faint stirring of hope and you know what? It burnsssss...
Wouldn't be our fandom if it wasn't a rollercoaster.
My personal rollercoaster currently is tracking the hourly updates of Amazon sales ranks for the Dollhouse DVD.
I seem to remember that Haken had a bit of code which allowed to track the sales of the Firefly DVD on Amazon.
I have a great bit of ugly cronjob full of lynx dumps, greps, and seds.
Is it sad that I understand everything B!X just said (and would probably have done it the same).

As for the promo, it's not a bad omen, but I'm not going to get too hopeful over it. Fox is big; it has left hands and right hands. And as a major network, it also has the capability to re-edit a youtube video if necessary.

And as an aside, is Whedonesque really really laggy for everyone else? It's the kind of consistantly laggy that suggests a reverse DNS lookup problem on the server (most likely this is either because Apache is configured to log hostnames, but the server's resolv.conf contains nameservers that are not responding so the RDNS times out, OR it's using MySQL on a different server, and MySQL networking will by default do RDNS on any connection and if the RDNS isn't set up for the webserver's local IP, then it will timeout. Hmm GIFs seem laggy as well -- which suggests it's Apache/resolv.conf)
AlanD, my head just exploded from all the techy goodness. The site is laggy (what a great word!) for me too, but I couldn't begin to speculate why.

And I choose to be optimistic about Dollhouse's inclusion in the promo. Not only Eliza, but Joss too. Very cool!
I guess when you're on tv all the time you adjust to random people reaching into your personal space and adjusting your shirt.

I'll have to test that next time I meet an actress. Try the old "Just have to adjust your microphone" line and start molesting.

I'm sure they'll eventually come out with something like "It's been twenty minutes now, are you done?" or "Wait, what are you doing in my shower anyway?"
It does seem to weird to make a promo which says Joss & Eliza will be on Fox, if they won't be.... We do notice that there isn't much Summer Glau or Josh Friedman in that video.... But it would be insane to get my hopes up!
*sigh*

Ahh.. the thing is... all the shows that appear in this vid simply haven't finished their runs yet. I'm sure Terminator would have been in there too if it hadn't finished its run already.

It wouldn't be insane, but well.. have I mentioned that I am insane?

Update: Thanks for the quick edit, Simon!

I'm going to assume there's a sarcasm tag after that comment.
Is anyone else reminded of Earthworm Jim whenever they see a picture of Hugh Laurie?

And I still have yet to see Dollhouse.

Me too. Otherwise, it's seriously offensive (instead of just annoyingly offensive).

I'm English. We're always evil and/or sarcastic.


(And to be honest, I would have thought the "twenty minutes" and "why are you in my shower" lines would have made it clear I was being humorous.)
