Dollhouse, the second Whedon creation for that network (he was also the man behind Firefly), stars Buffy vet as one of several agents for hire. Their abilities and memories, which are specifically crafted for each client, are immediately erased after an assignment is completed.

After showing Episode #1 to FOX execs - and even friend David Lynch - it was agreed that series could start off on a better note. In fact, some apparently found the segment confusing.

In a message to his fans, Whedon said, “There were some slight issues with tone. I was in a dark, noir kind of place and didn’t bring the visceral pop the network had expected from the script.”

Thankfully, Joss has plenty of time to make things right. Dollhouse doesn’t even premiere until FOX’s mid-season.
