Fox8 Dollhouse Season 1 Trailer

by admin on May 31, 2009 · 4 comments


Here’s the Australian Fox8 Dollhouse Season 1 Promo. It looks somewhat better than the US Fox version, although time may be playing a part in that perception.

Dollhouse premieres in Australia on June 9.

No, you’re not wrong — that was WAY better than the one we got for the US…maybe because it was way more sleek and sci-fi and WAY less fixated on sex, the way the US promos were. That actually would have had me even more excited for “Dollhouse” than I already was the first time around.

It’s sort of like how UK and Australian editions of television soundtracks have bonus tracks you can’t find on US TV soundtracks — why do we get the substandard versions? LOL. Anywhoo, I hope it gets better viewership there than it did in the US, but did you notice in the Eliza Dushku vid how she gave a shoutout to how many more viewers “Dollhouse” gained through DVR and Hulu watching? Maybe we’re hitting an age where that doesn’t matter as much anymore, because if you look at it from a next-day viewing perspective, “Dollhouse” did so much better than “Terminator” that it isn’t so much of a suprise that it got a chance for a second season and “Terminator” got…well…terminated.

Now that I’ve had a day or so to think about it, you’re probably right. This trailer IS better. It feels less forced and more intriguing..more “scifi”, as you say. It’s an all-round better fit, methinks!

I’d be interested to see how the show does over there – I know they have a habbit of pulling show’s early – like Fringe, for example.

Yeah, the powers that be are definitely embracing the ‘DVR age’..they’d be mad not to really. Like you say, we’re ushering in a new way of watching television shows as well as reassigning value to these new mediums. I still think the balance needs a bit of work — and I hope this isn’t the end of quality programming, where producers/studios rely soley on the fans to save their shows (irrespective of the actual product), but on the whole these are promising signs.

They show ads for dollhouse here in australia in every ad break, im soo excited to see it, all me friends r gonna be wathcing too. Oh and u dont hav to worry about shows being pulled off air early coz dollhouse is on fox8 and they never pull off shows midseason whereas if dollhouse were on ch9 or network 10 i would even bother watching knowing it’d be pulled off (oh how i miss fringe). Is fox8 showing epitaph one?

Thanks for the info Kyall. I know that Fringe got yanked from a network over there but it’s good to know they’re not all so impulsive.

I wouldn’t think that Fox8 would be showing Epitaph one (I think that will only appear on DVD) – but I could be wrong on that though. I’ll update when I find out.
