Before we announce the winners of the 2012 My Cinema Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. The lovably scatterbrained Fran Kranz has quickly become the great Joss Whedon’s go-to guy for casual genius characters like Dollhouse‘s futuristic tech whiz Topher and The Cabin in the Woods‘ stoner philosopher Marty. He’s a Yale grad […]

I was going to wait until the end of the series to post again. Mainly, I wanted to do that to save some of my street cred. Undoubtedly, most people reading this have already watched the whole series. Therefore, my half-baked theories formed on half-evidence are going to seem laughable to those of you who […]

Welcome Back To the Dollhouse
  Rachael Nisenkier

Last year, right as the TV season was starting up, I embarked down a new journey in my ordinary life. As it turned out, graduating college and getting a full time job required a lot more of my time than I had originally anticipated. My brain was so exhausted by the end of the day […]

This year we are introducing a new feature as part of our annual My TV Awards: The Honorary Award. This distinction, announced separately from the rest of the winners, is awarded to one person each year to celebrate standout achievement in any given category. This year’s winner was an unparalleled presence on television in 2009, […]

Sorry, Did I Fall Asleep?
  Tim Collins

Hell has frozen over. Pigs are flying. The world has gone topsy-turvy. For the first time in my life, a Joss Whedon series has fallen short of brilliance. I’ve been a die-hard fan of Dollhouse since it’s premiere last year. I’ve watched every episode and when I found some of them boring. I stuck through […]

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Amy Acker
  Kelly Bedard

In the first interview of our 2009 “My TV Nominee Series”, I had the amazing opportunity to speak one on one with one of My TV’s favourite actresses. The lovely and talented Ms. Amy Acker (of Angel and Alias fame) was gracious enough to take a few minutes of her time to talk about her […]

A Doll of a Doll
  Tim Collins

Over at My TV we live and breath Joss Whedon. Ask any of our writers and I would bet that at least two of his shows are in the top 10 on all of our lists. For me, Buffy and Angel will always hold the top spot (the only non-Whedon series coming close would be […]

Amy Acker Responds To Her My TV Award Nomination
  Kelly Bedard

“Thank you so much for nominating me for Dollhouse!!! That is really cool. I can’t really take too much credit, whenever Joss is running a show there is such amazing material. He has such awesome writers on the show, they kinda do all the work for you. I feel so lucky I have gotten to be in two […]

Another One Bites the Dust
  Tim Collins

Although at this point it’s semi-old news, it must be shared anyways: Joss Whedon’s intriguing, yet little watched, series Dollhouse has officially been canceled. After poor ratings it’s sophomore year and a move to Friday nights, it comes as no real surprise. The biggest hint of the series’ failure occurred a few weeks ago when […]

One of Entertainment Weekly’s newest photo galleries is a run down of what they consider to be the 25 greatest episodes in the Whedonverse. And while I don’t agree with every choice (how are “Waiting in the Wings”, “Tabula Rasa” and “Spin the Bottle” not on this list?), they get it almost exactly right. So, […]

Dollhouse Returns
  Tim Collins

Wait…Dollhouse premiered last night? That was my reaction this morning when I read an article about last night’s horrible ratings. So I immediately watched the episode (feeling horribly guilty that I too missed out on the premiere). Tonight’s episode has two great guest stars: Jamie Bamber (BSG!) plus Alexis Denisof! Amazing. But really Alexis was […]

So the age difference is a little startling and I wouldn’t have set them up in a million years but it seems that two of my favourite TV actors are a couple, and even Ausiello didn’t know about it. Adrianne Palicki (age 26) aka one of the best things about the spectacular and sadly underrated […]

Gilmore Girls/Samantha Who comedy queen Melissa McCarthy is joining Kelsey Grammar on Hank this fall. That there is enough of a reason to watch (even if there’s no love lost between you and the former Frasier Crane) Summer Glau’s guest turn on Dollhouse is no longer rumour and fantasy but reality. Whedonites rejoice! That guy […]

  Rachael Nisenkier

Dollhouse just got even geek-tastic–ier. Jamie Bamber, aka ab-tastic Captain/Major/Admiral Lee Adama, is joining the erst-while Helo, Tahmoh Penniket, on Dollhouse. Which means Whedon language coming out of the prettiest member of the awesome Adama family. I’m trying to avoid the BSG-centered pun, but… Oh frack it. So say we all!

Each of us here at My TV has our specialties. For example, Lauren likes comedy so she mostly sticks to sitcom coverage. I watch pretty much everything from Big Brother to The West Wing, commenting mostly on whatever provokes an emotional reaction from me (whether it be a moving scene between Nicki and Bill Henrikson, […]

  Rachael Nisenkier

God, I hope I’m not jumping the gun on this, because being told the following and then having it taken away from me might be too much to bear, but… DOLLHOUSE IS RENEWED! That’s right, the terminally lowly-viewed, network-interfered, high-concept, twisty drama about what makes a human being is going to be back, boys and […]

Obsessions
  Kelly Bedard

Emma Stone– She was the saving grace of the underwhelming Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, a highlight of The House Bunny and played one of the only relatable characters in Superbad. The girl is a serious talent and she’s here to stay. Dubbed Disney- the mad editing skills of “Fantachan” make the Random Disney Crap YouTube […]

Please. Please. Please. Please. Don’t read this if somehow magically you don’t know the huge Dollhouse spoiler that involves Alpha. I’ve warned you. Here, I’ll warn you again. Don’t Read this if you haven’t seen this week’s episode and/or if you have mercifully avoided spoilers until this point. There, you’ve been adequately warned. In this […]

I am a serious fan of genre fiction. I say this to distinguish myself from people who like Lost despite the science fiction or enjoy Buffy while despising horror. It’s not a value judgment; it’s a question of taste. For me, stories that come from a deep internal mythology speak more heartily and more truly […]

  Rachael Nisenkier

This week’s episode of Dollhouse, “Haunted,” went back to the beginning formula, with a self-contained monster of the week that felt a little as though it were holding off for bigger episodes. But unlike the first couple of episodes, this week’s monster of the week was actually pretty damn thought provoking. Margaret, a very rich […]

  Rachael Nisenkier

As a growing-more-and-more-devoted-by-the-week fan of Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse, I read almost religiously the ratings week after week. And they are, frankly, depressing. I still think it’s entirely FOX’s own fault, for over-interfering in the show and for putting it on a bad night and for thinking that photos of Eliza Dushku naked were “clever” marketing, […]

  Rachael Nisenkier

Normally, I don’t read any other reviews before I start reviewing an episode of Dollhouse. When I go deep into metaphor and character analysis, I want the ideas to be my own. Unfortunately, my tired brain brought me to the AVClub.com’s excellent review, and in my weakened state I read that before I could formulate […]

  Rachael Nisenkier

Last night’s Dollhouse was advertised by FOX as an “Event” and Whedon himself hyped it by saying that 6 and 8 were the real pinnacle of the beginning of the Season. I have to say though, I was a little… dare I say it?… disappointed. It’s not that “Needs” wasn’t a good episode, rife with […]

  Rachael Nisenkier

Dollhouse this week was a much goofier affair than the week before’s revelation-o-rama. It was back to story of the week mode, with Sierra and Victor being sent to a college to investigate an outbreak of craziness thanks to a drug developed by the enigmatically evil Rossum corporation. Said drug infected everyone in our cast, […]

  Rachael Nisenkier

This week’s episode of Dollhouse, titled “Man on the Street,” was a game changer episode. It was “Prophecy Girl” on Buffy, “Diversity Day” on the Office, “To Shanshu in LA” on Angel, “The Man in the Fallout Shelter” on Bones, and “Tracy Does Conan” on 30 Rock. All these episodes helped shape and redefine the […]

  Rachael Nisenkier

Don’t have a lot of time (it’s Battlestar Gallactica night here at mi casa), but I needed to say: THIS WEEK’S DOLLHOUSE FRAKKING ROCKED. It had action, comedy, and truly awesome plot developments, as well as an obscene amount of half-naked Ballard and Victor (proving once and for all that on Dollhouse, the exploitation goes […]
