Newsies: Twilight-gate Edition

In all the hullabaloo and shenanigans of last week, a lot of the fun Whedonverse related articles and events got lost. So here's a round-up of things we found interesting but didn't post about during Twilight-gate:

New Firefly short stories! New Firefly short stories! We should all be talking about this, but we've been too involved with Twilight-gate.

I got "JOSS!!-ed" a dozen times during the last few episodes of Dollhouse, which keeps getting better and better in my book. Bits still dislikes it and Michelle still refuses to watch it, but I find myself seriously wishing to start a bigger, better "Save Dollhouse" campaign. Check out I09's recap/assesment of last week's ep "Getting Closer" here and this past Friday's ep Hollow Men there. Note: The season finale of Dollhouse has been pushed to 1/29/10.

Speaking of, Dollhouse is closing up shop for real and selling all the goods in the store (too much metaphor?) Lucky for you, this is your chance to pick up some of the leftovers including a cool pair of used Prada loafers.

"The Tinkly Piano of ConCord sex" AOL discusses this awkward pairing in their "Worst TV Couples Ever" list.

These dudes are improving Whedon at The Gorilla Tango Theatre in Chicago! The Improvised Joss Whedon show is a big "what if" scenario in which characters from various Whedon programs (like Buffy and Dollhouse) meet each other. How cool?

We're willing to bet lots of money that there's a sufficient amount of Spike fans who've written James Marsters a love poem, or two. Well, now's your chance to make it official. And please, for the love of all things Buffy, send us a copy of your entry, so we can post it here on Buffyfest, too!

With all the divides in the fandom, and there are many, one character has always been able to bring us back together. Look out for the Angel Special: Lorne due to release in March. Until then, Chris Ryall previewed this page centered around Groo in the special issue. Check that out.

Have a great weekend!

I have to agree with you about Dollhouse. The first season I was rather "eh" and didn't even watch all of it. This season I have been making a point to watch it and it has been blowing my mind. I guess getting the axe was what it needed to become amazing.
