Derek shovels dirt

Yeah, that's definitely my favorite deleted scene. Usually it's obvious why deleted scenes are deleted scenes, but I don't know why they cut that. Something that important should've been on screen. At least it's on the DVD, though. Now I can watch Derek throw dirt on old!Fisher over and over again.

Ah yes, the crucial *shovelling* scene! In which BAG gets to demonstrate his dramatic chops opposite that most compelling of scene partners: dirt. And a shovel.

That scene would've been on his Emmy reel, had it not been cut for time. I bet he's still bitter.

You're right... So Emmy worthy! Poor BAG.

Ironically, I HATED that scene. I hated it cause Derek would NOT be so stupid as to bury him that shallow. A decent rain would expose the body pretty damn fast.

Well there's that, but it's much more fun to think that someone actually watched clips and chose that as an interesting enough deleted scene to put on the DVD.

There's a deleted scene on the Dollhouse DVDs that is about five seconds long, and all it is is Paul walking to a window at night. The only possible reason I can think for its inclusion is that he is not wearing a shirt.

Yeah, except for the first deleted scene with Cameron and John (ironic since I hate Jameron) in the bedroom from TTITBTFIS, I was rather disappointed in the deleted scenes this time around. It couldn't be from the lack of Lena, now could it? ;D Whereas in the first season, I was literally agape at the deleted/extended scene from The Pilot when Sarah talks to Cameron as she's being sewn up - such kick ass acting from Lena!

But, we got more Lena in the gag reel in S2, so I kinda take it as a balancing effect for the so-so list of S2 deleted scenes.

I'm not usually a big fan of deleted scenes anyway, but that clip of Derek shoveling was just so pointless, I had to mention it :P

My big gripe about the DVD is there's no commentary for Good Wound or SMWWSMS.

I'm a fan of deleted scenes if they add to the storyline or expand on a bit of dialogue I like - or have signifigant Lena in them, I admit! But yeah, the dirt shoveling scene, I went WTF?! Probably the most pointless deleted scene I've ever seen on a DVD.

My wishlist for the DVD would have included commentary on MFIIT. But since we have no show any more, I'll take anything we get on the S2 DVDs as a sort of consolation prize.

Still not got the set. But I know damn well that the deleted scene from Lighthouse where Sarah takes in all of her wounds - old and new and finds the lump in her breast didn't make the discs. I know there's a chance it was written and not shot, but that's certainly not the way the blog wrote about it at the time of the episode. I guess there just wasn't enough Jameron in the scene... and by the gods, the discs certainly sound like they need more Jameron.

Awww, frak, I forgot about that deleted scene with Sarah getting out of the shower! Dammit!!! I knew I was watching the deleted scenes thinking something was missing! Besides the pure lezzie fangirl aspect of wanting to see Lena in a towel, I really wanted to see how she'd portrayed that scene - a lot of Lena's best acting can be without any dialog - it's all in those beautiful eyes! :D

As a consolation prize, here's my icon!

You forgot?! That's it, your membership of Gay Gals for Sarah Connor is hereby rescinded! ;-)

Besides the pure lezzie fangirl aspect of wanting to see Lena in a towel,

My interest was purely in characterisation and the acting... and I will testify to that in front of a jury cos, apparently, I am already going to hell.

As a consolation prize, here's my icon!

You are hereby allowed back into the Gay Gals for Sarah Connor club *g*

Wait, you're the president? Good, now I know who to nag over the fact that my swanky card hasn't arrived in the mail yet! Also, me and CJ once said some time ago that we should all cause a stink on Afterellen about the lack of shower!Lena scene from the DVD. XD

*snort* Sometimes, deleted scenes were deleted for a reason and should have stayed that way.
