among most of the blogs and websites I read, an outright “No, that wasn’t any good” is hard to come by, especially when it comes to Joss Whedon.  I understand the dynamic at play and the resulting pandering to the Whedon fanbase.  Plus it seems by all account Joss is actually a great guy, yadda, yadda, so you will see many reviews that have a lot of hedging going on.  Not so with the San Francisco Chronicle’s Tim Goodman:

Joss Whedon is one of television’s most talented visionaries, but his latest series – the highly anticipated midseason drama “Dollhouse” – is a major disappointment.

Yikes.   That’s the review that will appear in the paper.

In a separate blog post Goodman says Eliza Dushku can’t carry the lead.
