Oh No, didn't we just get firefly here in the UK, or was it shown previously in the UK, and it slipped under my radar.

I Hope we get it in the UK

Thats what i did. Tho i think your wrong about it not being picked up in the UK. As I said earlier its not picked up yet, but im sure it will at some point, likely to been shown in the summer if i had to guess. After all most US cult/genre shows are these days.

Firefly was on the Sci-Fi Channel, and in fact showed the final episodes (3 or 4 of them) before anywhere else did because by that time Fox had abandoned the series with unaired episodes.

Dollhouse I would have thought would be picked up by Sky One, but given it's opening ratings maybe Virgin1 or ITV4 would be more likely. I doubt the BBC will buy it. They only bought heroes after it proved to be a massive ratings hit in the US.

Ah, it did slip under my radar, granted most things do.

i remeber watching the film when it was on sky premiere years ago, but only watched firefly about a month or to ago when Sci fi started re showing them.

yeah i agree, i think Virgin1 would be a likely candidate to pick it up

If it cancelled then it will be picked up by Scifi at some later date. May be ITV4.

If it survives then it will be Sky1,Virgin, ITV.

BBC already got a wide variety of scifi shows on the air, with it looking to expand it own brands of show as they have doing particularly well for BBC world operations. Which they are hoping can keep raising its profits to off set off their failure to get the license fees they wanted.

Heroes returns on BBC2 this Monday the 23rd at 9.00pm, they are advertising it as a new series, but it's actually chapter 4 the second half of series 3.

Sci Fi acquires 'Dollhouse', 'Knight Rider'
Friday, March 20 2009, 16:33 GMT

By Dan French


The Sci Fi Channel has picked up the UK rights to two new US dramas, it has been announced.

The NBC Universal-owned channel has secured the first run UK pay-TV rights to Joss Whedon's Dollhouse and the sequel to David Hasselhoff's 1980s show Knight Rider.

"We're dedicated to offering our audience the most exciting content available and are thrilled to become the UK home for two such highly anticipated series," said Jon Farrar, programming director for NBC Universal Global Networks. "Knight Rider and Dollhouse both hail from fine pedigrees, clearly reflected in their superior production values.

"The special effects in both series are genuinely show-stopping and likely to be the subject of many water-cooler moments for fans, who have the added choice of watching in either standard or high definition.”

Both shows have been secured for their 13-episode first seasons. The agreement also includes the renewal of repeat rights to seasons one to five of Whedon’s popular Buffy spinoff Angel.

'Dollhouse' tops 'Prison Break' finale

Last night's UK Dollhouse premiere proved more popular than the Prison Break finale, according to early viewing figures.

Joss Whedon's latest project, starring Eliza Dushku, debuted on Sci Fi at 9pm to 263k (1.3%), with a further 76k (0.5%) tuning in on timeshift. It beat Sky1's screening of the two-hour Prison Break finale, which averaged 233k between 10pm and midnight

Sci Fi has acquired the first run UK pay TV rights to the second season of Dollhouse.

It has also been confirmed that the show's 13th episode - which was cut by Fox in the US - will premiere on the channel in August.

"We’re thrilled to offer our audience not only all 13 episodes of the first season but also confirmation that Sci Fi has the season two premiere already lined up for later in the year," said Jon Farrar, programming director for NBC Universal Global Networks in the UK.

He added: "Dollhouse has become a cult hit in the UK and is one of the most talked about and successful show launches of 2009.

"We've been relentless in our quest to bring the most entertaining, exciting and in-demand programming to our viewers and Dollhouse has ticked all those boxes and many more."
