Fox “grindhouse” promo tries to make us forget Fridays are death

Death slot? What death slot?

Fox has released a new video promo for its upcoming Friday-night lineup of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Joss Whedon's new Dollhouse that takes its inspiration from grindhouse cinema trailers.

The spot exploits the, um, natural connection between Terminator's Cameron (Summer Glau) and Dollhouse's Echo (Eliza Dushku), emphasizing sex, guns and rock 'n' roll. Watch it after the jump.

Not that the spot has much to do with either show or, for that matter, the reality of scheduling two sci-fi shows on a night notorious for killing such shows off, but whatever. At least they get points for style. The shows debut on Feb. 13, starting at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
