Dollhouse-Ep: 1

Dollhouse was a hit, at least it was in my opinion. Echo (Eliza Dushku) is the sexy, smart-ass, girl, who is introduced when she is first signing up for the 'dollhouse' experience. The next scene cuts to her on a motorcycle racing some guy, who is later revealed as a paying customer, who bought her as a week long girlfriend. After her mission is over, she goes home still thinking that she has met an amazing guy, only to get her memory wiped clean. Not to give too much away on the show for those of you who haven't seen it yet, it was very much a police drama. When a little girl gets kidnapped, Echo is turned into this negotiator, to get her back.

This show has gotten mixed reviews and is unlike anything that Joss has ever done before. Also, many have said that the dollhouse is kinda like a prostitution ring, because man can come in and buy the woman as dates and even for sex. Although men are dolls as well we have yet to meet them. One man however that works there is Topher Brink (Fran Kranz) his job is to imprint the dolls and make sure that they are unaware of everything. Also Dr. Claire Saunders (Amy Acker, and Angel alumni) looks after the physical well-being of the dolls. She is also scarred from a razor attack. I was just on the Dollhouse website and in Echo Chamber and half of her gallery pictures are of her topless, with her arms or other things covering her. Now being a guy, I'm all for seeing her nude, but come on this is for a TV show, why is it needed? Echo.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, lasted seven great years. Angel stared on Buffy for three years and later went into his own success for five years on his own show. And Firefly a short lived series with only 14 episodes. But later helped bring the film Serenity to life. All of these great works of Joss Whedon and Dollhouse is just the next of his great works. Lets hope that is is long lived and loved by all fans.
