Dollhouse

Did anyone catch this on Friday night? It looks like it's going to be a pretty cool new series. And we all love Joss Whedon

The show's premise, via Wiki:

Quote:
Eliza Dushku plays a young woman called Echo, a member of a group of people known as "Actives" or "Dolls." The Dolls have had their personalities wiped clean so they can be imprinted with any number of new personas, including memory, muscle memory, skills, and language, for different assignments. The new persona is not an original creation, however, but an amalgam of different, existing personalities. The end result incorporates some of the flaws, not just the strengths, of the people used as templates. The Actives are then hired out for particular jobs -- crimes, fantasies, and the occasional good deed. On missions, Actives are monitored internally (and remotely) by Handlers. In between tasks, they are mind-wiped into a child-like state and live in a futuristic dormitory/laboratory, a hidden facility nicknamed "The Dollhouse." The story follows Echo, who begins, in her mind-wiped state, to become self-aware.
Official site: FOX Broadcasting Company: Dollhouse

The first episode was really good, and I plan to continue watching it. For those that missed it, you can watch the pilot on the official site (in America), or on YouTube:

YouTube - Dollhouse Season 1 Episode 1 Premiere 1/6

I really want to like this show. I love Eliza Dushku. But it was a bit of a snooze for me.

I really love the story, but the first episode could've used a little bit more flavour. I've found that Joss Whedon's first episodes of most of his shows tend to have that problem. Hopefully the second episode will come forth and blow us away.

I'm going to give this one a few more tries before I write it off, overall not the greatest premier or anything but not terrible either.

Agreed. I wanted to like it, but didn't. I'll give it a few weeks.

Overall,
this is better than most of the new crap they are throwing at us these days.

I expected less. All the reviews were mixed.

It sounded a lot like the Christian Slater project that I think got canceled.


The Terminator series is quite good, this seems to be a decent show to follow it.


I'm in.

I liked the second episode better, how about you guys?

It certainly opened up a mystery I'm gonna want to keep watching to find out more about. Who is this Alpha and why did he go nutso?

This show really does seem to be getting better as it goes along. Hopefully enough people are tuning in so that Fox doesn't screw it over and cancel it. Last week's episode (with the cult) was my favourite since the second one (the crazy hunter dude.) Everyone's been saying that episode 6 (tonight's episode) is going to be reaaally good.

Anyone else still tuning in?

I'm downloading it weekly. It's good, not great. That guy who plays the resident genius is totally fucking annoying, though.

I gave it up after two weeks, but I've been hearing tonight is supposed to be that magical episode #6 that Joss and Eliza keep going on about. Apparently Fox made him change a ton of stuff at first, so he wasn't really happy with the show until this episode tonight.

Too bad it's up against the two hour BSG series finale tonight, so I won't be able to see it until Monday, when I can watch it on my work DVR.

I finally got around to watching Friday's episode and it was definitely the best so far, a couple of good twists and turns in this one.

I went from being slightly interested to very curious as to where this all leads.

I'm glad I DVRd Friday's episode, because that was all kinds of kick-ass. Will definitely try watching this again, see if it sticks.
