Wish

I love Eliza. I’ve said it before- many many many times.

I put together a short video request for help.

Please let people know about the efforts to save the show. (The good news is that the episode Epitaph One was nominated for a Hugo Award. Ironically, it was an unaired episode.) It is definitely worth watching.

  1. Just so you know, you’re pronouncing Dushku incorrectly. It’s Dush like push, not douche. You can hear Eliza pronounce it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ToSXwaiMTs

  2. Lila Norcutt Says:

    Dollhouse was canceled on November 11, 2009. In ten days, it will have been five months since it was canceled. Don’t you think it is about time to admit defeat?

  3. John Hoffman Says:

    Lila,

    I suppose you thought that the Japanese should have given up after Nagasaki, too?

    Quiters never win. Winners never quit.

  4. When Joss Whedon himself has said he is done with the show, what will it take to convince you that it is over?

  5. David Stockman Says:

    Tore, you look malnourished. Why do you continue to engage in self destructive behavior? Love is a natural emotion, and, as such, it takes a natural course. You have put your message of love in the media for five months now. It is beyond reason to expect that Ms. Dushku will in any way respond to your efforts. If she were going to respond, she would have by now. I am sure she was notified by Fox security of your obsessive interest in her, and she has made no effort to contact you. Even if you manage to save Dollhouse, which you will not, she would never, ever love you for it. Let me clear. She does not love you. She will never love you. For the sake of your physical and mental well being, you need to wake up and realize that you have much more to live for than this obsessive quest in which you continue to stake everything. When you are ready to admit reality, that Ms. Dushku does not love you, only then will you begin to heal. What you are doing now is destroying who you are. For god’s sake man, where are you? Who are you? Where is Tore Simonsen? Where is the brilliant lawyer? Where is the passionate progressive? Where is the rational man that used to live in your body? Look for him, embrace him, and forget the girl. Hope lies within yourself, not within a really lame T.V. show whom even the writer admits was not very good.

    • Joss did not say that, in fact he says he’s extremely proud of the show and the work he created. When it got canceled, he said: “I’m extremely proud of the people I’ve worked with: my star, my staff, my cast, my crew. I feel the show is getting better pretty much every week, and I think you’ll agree in the coming months. I’m grateful that we got to put it on, and then come back and put it on again.”

      Since then, there have been a couple of interviews where he says how much he liked the show, how much he LOVES the series finale, etc. I agree with your sentiments on Tore, but stop making crap up about Joss.

      • David Stockman Says:

        Joss said, according to you “I feel the show is getting better pretty much every week…” Does a writer say that about a show he feels is well written? I don’t recall writer Danny Arnold ever saying anything like that about “Barney Miller,” the greatest TV show ever put on the air. Anyway, I don’t care what “Joss” thinks, so I concede your point, B. Didn’t mean to touch a nerve. My personal opinion is that the concept of the show was offensive, and content of show was awful, and I hate to see an individual like Tore give up his well being for it.

  6. Why wouldn’t a writer say that? It can be well written and still be improving, in fact it should always be improving. I’m a fairly decent guitar player, and I see myself improving every time I practice more. Honestly, that statement you just made is very naive, and if people actually followed that kind of logic in your statement, no one would ever improve at anything. And the show was getting better every week, it went from awesome to absolutely outstanding.

    And as for finding the content offensive, well that’s up to you. I personally was not offended by it at all, and actually find the people who think it’s offensive to be overly sensitive and a most likely a bore to be around. And the content was not awful. It’s very obvious you have not seen episodes like “Epitaph One” or “Epitaph 2”, “The Attic”, “The Public Eye”, “The Left Hand”, “Getting Closer”, etc. so your opinion on the content of the show has little to no value.

    Feel free to check out the awesome critical acclaim this show eventually garnered, after FOX stopped meddling and let Joss do his own thing: http://community.livejournal.com/ohnotheydidnt/42295031.html

    If you’d rather not click the link, here is just a few of them:

    MTV said: “This show is absolutely on fire right now.”

    IGN said: “Stop-Loss is a fun, exciting and interesting installment that ranks among the best Dollhouse has offered. The Attic is terrifically entertaining.”

    The A.V. Club gave both episodes an A and said: “Dollhouse will be remembered long after it’s gone”.

    Cinema Blend said: “What we’re seeing in these final episodes is truly exciting television.”

    Poptimal said: “This latest block was the best Dollhouse has ever been, with tons of kickass action better than most of what I’m seeing at the multiplex these days, emotional payoffs, great, twisty writing and character revelations all drenched with true originality.”

  7. David Stockman Says:

    Well, I don’t take issue with anyone who enjoys a particular t.v. show. I think it speaks for itself, however, that you have taken the discussion beyond mere commentary on a t.v. show to hurling personal insults. At any rate, I hope Tore finds a way to feel better because obviously he is not in a good space right now.

  8. David Stockman Says:

    No offense. I don’t mean this personally to anyone. Tore is a fine person, and “B” seems nice. We all believe in the freedom of expression, so I’m sure you all won’t censor me on this: Wasn’t Joss quoted as saying that the first six episodes should be called “Out-house” and not Dollhouse? Maybe that is a paraphrase.

  9. David Stockman Says:

    No. I like the homeless. I have empathy for them. I want to do everything I can to help. I don’t however see a connection between trying to save a show (of which I clearly don’t have a high opinion) and being homeless. Homelessness is caused by sudden loss of income or mental illness. I can’t understand how someone can become homeless in order to save a show. Anyway, please don’t think I’m making fun of you all. I’m trying to prove a point. I am using satire and irony to help you better understand that no show is worth sacrificing everything.

  10. Please get a job and a home. Your family loves you and living on the streets isn’t good for you.

    You deserve better, for yourself if nothing else. Please Tore.

  11. The tired refrainer Says:

    Time to move on Tore. Joss has a new job.

    I look forward to your future posts about finding housing, getting a job and moving on with your life!

  12. Agent Zig Zag Says:

    For Christs sake, this is insane! Forget the petty squabbling about the shows qualities (for what it’s worth, after a shaky start it became one of the best things on television as far as I’m concerned) and lets just deal in cold, hard reality for a second here.

    Dollhouse is canceled. It’s staying canceled. It won’t be coming back in any form, including comics. Joss has confirmed this. They knew from very early in the second season that there would be no third outing, so every plot line was engineered to lead to epitaph 2. The story has been finished. They had the unusual chance to finish their tale (unlike Angel or Deadwood, for instance) and they did exactly that. Joss has spoken in interviews about how he feels on this subject. As far as he’s concerned, there’s nothing more to say.

    The sets are down. The cast are signed on to other series. Joss is making Cabin in The Woods and the new Avengers movie. There is, quite literally, nothing to save. It won’t be coming back.

    And anyway, if Joss really did have the chance to resurrect one of his shows, he’s choose Firefly. That’s not debatable; he’s said so himself. Accuse me of making up things that he’s said if you want (as people here seem to have done a lot already), but this is fact. It’s in interviews with the AV Club and press junket reports from Dollhouse and video from comic con and so on.

    Dollhouse is over. It had a good run, and ended up being a great series. But deal with the facts: It isn’t ever coming back.

    • I will continue to work to save Dollhouse. I have been trying to save Dollhouse since before it was cancelled. I will continue to try to save Dollhouse. It is certainly not easy with the so-called social networking sites trying to gag the efforts along with other forms of anti-democratic social controls in place. Nevertheless, I encourage people to sign the petitions and spread the word.

      • The tired refrainer Says:

        Can you agree to do it part time. Maybe get a job and an aptartment and just try to save dollhouse on the nights and weekends?

      • Lila Norcutt Says:

        How about addressing the merits of what Mr. Zig Zag has to say? The fact that you have been trying to save it before it was cancelled is irrelevant. The perceived slights by social networking tools is irrelevant. Anti-democratic social controls are irrelevant.

        This isn’t an effort to save a show, it is an exercise in martyrdom.

      • I don’t find such mischaracterizations helpful.

  13. David Stockman Says:

    Can you explain to us why you continue to attempt the impossible? What, in your reality, do you stand to gain from all this? For the sake of argument, let’s say you resurrect dollhouse. What will happen then? We would like to know what is motivating you. Is it that you think Eliza will love you if you save the show? If you believe that, can you tell us why you believe that? I’ll be honest. To all of us, the notion that Eliza would ever love you is not reality based. I hate to be so blunt, but she is not in your league, man? Can’t you see this? She is not in my league either, but it’s OK that she is not in my league. There is a whole world out there for you, if you can just step outside this obsessive thought cycle you are in.

    • I find the overwhelming negativity to be inexplicable. You increasingly look like a jaded troll with nothing better to do than to put people down. Thousands have signed the petitions, so there is support for saving the show despite the efforts on the part of many to suppress the efforts. I love Eliza.

      • The tired refrainer Says:

        We’re not trolling Tore. We really care about you. We recognize that you’re sick and are trying to help. They call it tough love for a reason.
