Paley Fest '09: Dr. Horrible News (Beware: Dollhouse Spoilers)


Remember the anticipation felt before last year's Paley Fest when we heard the news that the Scoobie Gang (or most of them anyway) were going to be in the same room together again. Oh, the joy! Then came the actual event and that infamous "ipod question" heard round the world. Well, I haven't forgotten and it seems Joss hasn't either. At this year's Paley Fest during the Dr. Horrible panel, Joss made a plea for no ipod questions. Thanks Joss because you were just saying what we all were thinking.

(Spoilers) Check out the Futon Critic's nice little time-line to keep you up to speed on such subjects as why they killed Penny and how Bad Horse is really the break-out star of the Whedonverse appearing in Angel, Dr. Horrible and next week's episode of Dollhouse:

The Dollhouse Panel is taking place today. I'm sure the fate of the show will be the question on most people's minds. Scificool.com is reporting that Joss had this to say on the subject when talking with a bunch of reporters:

“[The chances are] not very good but in limbo,” Whedon said in a group interview Tuesday night in Hollywood, where he was sitting on a panel at the Paley Festival presentation for his Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. “Obviously our numbers are pretty soft, and there it is, but we live in hope. I’m really proud of the episodes that are coming out. More than that, I can’t really ask.”
