io9's Jul 22 take on the Dollhouse pilot reshoot:
"Today Joss Whedon broke the news that he would be shooting a new pilot for Fox series Dollhouse, the near-future tale of a group of "dolls" who can be imprinted with any personality their employers choose: ninja, lover, spy, and tons of other things. Apparently Fox found the pilot too confusing and dark, and Whedon says he responded by offering to shoot a new pilot. He will turn the old pilot into the first episode. For those of you who remember that the exact same thing happened with the pilot of Whedon's last TV show, the legendary space western Firefly, take heart. Whedon says it's not the same thing. ..."
Maybe it's not too late to join the Save-the-Dollhouse campaign?
