NewsOK’s Television blog gives a rundown of the fall schedule on FOX. Biggest news for geeks is the much-rumored return of Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse.” The series, starring Eliza Dushku (pictured) will get a second season to improve on its ratings. Eliza Dushku plays Echo, one of a group of people who have their memories wiped to go on new, dangerous assignments.
It’s not an entire win for the sci-fi contingent, however, as “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” gets the axe.
Comics fans, of interest is a midseason series, “The Human Target” based on the DC comic. (The concept was tried once before as a pilot, years ago, with Rick Springfield of all people.) Here’s the info from the NewsOK Television blog:
Human Target (midseason): Based on the popular DC Comics graphic novel, this is a full-throttle action drama centered on Christopher Chance (Mark Valley, “Fringe”), a unique private contractor/security guard hired to protect. Call him what you like, because for Chance, it’s about one thing only: saving his clients’ lives.
I for one thought the Vertigo series about Christopher Chance was highly underrated; if this motivates you to seek out those graphic novels, you’ll come out ahead.
