Making the world a better place, one show at a time.

I guess you would like to know a little bit about the person making all these proclamations upon good taste and horrid characters. I'm Andrea and when I was 15 I fell in love. An hour after meeting "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" I was forever altered in the way only love can, and I never questioned for one minute afterwards that television offered me an amazing chance to experience lives and moments that I could never imagine. So now, when I'm not getting distracted by my real life, I write about TV. I also read, am finishing a Master's degree in English Literature, travel, am attempting to learn vegan cooking, am the 5th of 6 children, and drive my roommate nuts by constantly cleaning our already clean apartment. Now that we're old friends, time for you to take my opinions as the be all and end all.

New Show: Dollhouse

There are a few of us out there with absolutely unachievable desires: a fourth season of Veronica Mars, a real and permanent Buffy/Angel reunion, a world where Grey's Anatomy never existed.

I will never have any of these things, but we all might get one ridiculously amazing consolation prize: a new show from Joss Whedon starring Eliza Dushku. The show is called Dollhouse. There have been rumors and plans and maybes floating around for a while now, but I have been hesitant to get my hopes up that the universe likes me enough to give me not only a new Joss Whedon show, but also to return the amazing Faith to me. Well, maybe I haven't learned my lesson about the cruel hand of fate, but I found out something today that has gotten me so pumped about the possibility of this show, I am willing to believe that this time it will be different, that I will not be shown joy simply to have it taken away.

What I found out is that Tahmoh Penikett has been cast as Paul Smith, the nemesis/love interest for Eliza's character Echo. Frakking Carl "Helo" Agathon! (Confused as to my excitement, see post below and follow instructions.) If I get even one episode of this show the universe doesn't just like me, it loves me.

Ahhh...in a perfect world there would be a Season 4 of VM and all the characters of Grey's Anatomy would die slow and painful deaths. Are you excited to see the "Forgetting Sarah Marshall movie?"

I have to admit I am excited to see Forgetting Sarah Marshall, although I am worried about our future Judd-Apatow-run-world. Love him, but we should all recognize just how much control we are giving him. But it is Kristen Bell and Jason Segel, how on earth could I stay away? You?
