Christopher Webster [Cathode Ray Mission 04.10.09] Tuvalu post apocalyptic news

Argh, of course this would happen. Here I am watching Joss Whedon's good-but-not- great (solid 6/10 I'd say) Dollhouse every week and Fox won't air the best sounding episode of the whole season. Word is (via io9) that the episode in question, which would have been the season's 13th and final one, would have flashed forward to a post-apocalyptic future in which the world is in chaos.

While it's not completely clear why the episode that was written and directed by Whedon won't air, it sounds like it has something to do with contracts and money. Remember, how they made him re-do his pilot. Well, I think the idea is that they're counting that as one of the 13 episodes they agreed to. Money, how boring.

The worst part is that it's yet to be determined whether Fox will even spring for post-production costs to include the episode on the inevitable DVD. Why Whedon went back to Fox in the first place after the whole Firefly debacle is still mystery so may be he deserves it - Twice bitten and all.

WHHHHHAAAT!?!?! Here's hoping those tight bastards at FOX spring for the extra $ and if not, I'd still like to see the episode make it on the DVD, unfinished effects and all.
