Some vague allusions to recent episodes of "Dollhouse" here, but they're not the main point of this post, so no worries if you're trying to avoid spoilers.

I've been happily enjoying the final stretch of episodes of Joss Whedon's "Dollhouse," which has been prematurely canceled by FOX. The creators have gone the route of packing something like five years of story into the last ten episodes, so it's been really fun viewing keeping up with the breakneck pace of the plot as we approach the end - I feel like I'm getting massive payoff for all the hours I put in watching the so-so first season.

Last week's episode ended with a big, game-changing twist that apparently came out of the blue for some people. Today I ran across a discussion on ONTD over here (watch out for lots of spoilers) talking about an iO9 interview with Tim Minear, who wrote the episode. And I was really struck by the severe negative reaction to Minear revealing that the big twist wasn't something that had been planned out from the beginning of the show, but a development that had been worked out at the beginning of the current season. All sorts of accusations of "lazy writing" and "bad writing" are flying around.

And I really don't understand the complaint at all )
