Things To Keep In Mind While Watching Dollhouse
Friday, February 13, 2009 | Author: Mad Typist
For those of you not quite as in the know as the rest of the Nerd-a-verse, tonight FOX is premiering the new Joss Whedon show Dollhouse. Dollhouse stars the excellent Eliza Dushku as "Echo", a woman who has her memories completely wiped at the end of each mission she undertakes. She's one of many "dolls" that can be rented out by rich clientele for anything from assasinations, hostage negotiations, mid-wifery (yes, you read that correctly), and even just plain old sex and companionship.

I encourage you to check out this show. Joss Whedon has produced some great TV in his day, and many of us are hoping this next project will pay off for the viewers.

Here are some things you should keep in mind while you're watching tonight's episode:
  • Keep your expectations low. This is the sort of world that requires a lot of time to fully flesh out. Also, it's well known that Fox executives "helped" shape the pilot and early direction of the show, plus Joss himself has said that it took awhile for him to truly decide where he wanted to go with the plot, so the early episodes may only be of average quality.
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer didn't really hit its stride till the second season, so a show like Dollhouse may also require patience to hit its stride. I'm going to give the show the full 13 episodes this season to really make an impact on me.
  • While you're waiting for the show to really wow you, enjoy the beautiful cast Joss has so thoughtfully assembled for you (see pic below)
  • At some point this season, there will be hot girl-on-girl action. If that doesn't make you want to watch...
  • Another activity to engage in while you're waiting for the show to get great is to ponder which material Tahmoh Penikett's gorgeous face has mostly likely been carved from: granite, marble or the ivory from a unicorn horn.

*giggles* I'm just getting into Buffy, having loved Dr. H, so I've got high hopes for this one too!

It'll be a while before we get it over here in the UK, though...
