A Week Of Doom & Gloom “Dollhouse” Headlines

by admin on November 12, 2008 · 4 comments

It’s been an amusing week of headlines in Dollhouse-land. So many of the blogs and news sites eager to cast their gloom on the high concept, low priority that is Dollhouse. The headlines they use to cast their gloom has ranged from the spectacular to the hilarious to the ones which cry out ‘please click me, please click me’.

Let’s have a look at some of the best (or worst) Dollhouse ‘doom and gloom’ headlines:

“Is Dollhouse In The Doghouse?”Chicago Tribune. Hardly original, but dog’s houses tend to go well with anything bad. They’re also were dogs sleep – if I were writing a response headline, it would be “Let sleeping dogs lie”. 

“Has Fox Endangered Dollhouse”SyFy Portal – A rather reserved approach, although it makes me want to protect the show like the rain forest.

“Dollhouse Receives Time Slot Of Death”SFUniverse – LOL LOL LOL, this one is made of pure win, heaven help the show that receives the time slot of death..oh, wait. 

“Dollhouse & Terminator Team-up”IGN – Sorry IGN, but this headline is WAY too positive. No cookie for you.

“Dollhouse’s Friday Death”/Film – That’s the spirit!

“Has Sarah Connor Terminated Dollhouse”io9– OK, great site, but even better headline, LOL! Sarah Connor is a murderer! Even if she has no say in who she leads-in.

“Fox Network Deposits Whedon’s Dollhouse in Friday Death Slot”AICN – put the words ‘deposits’, ‘dollhouse’ and ‘death’ together and you’re onto a winner..and a mouthful!

“Fox Gives Dollhouse A Dodgy Home”Chicago Tribune – Dollhouse..dodgy home..get it?

“Fox Dumps Dollhouse on Fridays”Comic Mix– Alliteration is great.

“TV Death Zone Re-opens, Swallows Dollhouse”RevolutionSF – my sides hurt.

“Fox Blesses Dollhouse With Friday Death Slot”Geek Show US – A win for irony!

“Dollhouse Start Date – WTF?”TV Squad – Ah, the old “WTF?”, never fails to convey confusion.

“FOX: Dollhouse Has 13 Episodes To Find It’s Audience”Watching Dollhouse– Pfft. Attention seeker.

SO, just for fun, which headline is your favourite, which one is the most sensationalist, hilarious or plain click-appealing?

By the way, no offense is intended by this post – I visit and respect some of those sites – I’m just trying to remove the doom and gloom..a bit like the post above.
