This is the unaired pilot, It seems to be mostly scenes from the first couple of episodes, with added unseen bits carrying on from those scenes. If Fox had only let Joss air this one, we could have got through all the mess of the first 6 episodes in one go.
I think the fact that Dollhouse 's all-too-fabled episode, "Epitaph One", is not going to air, and is instead going to be with the first season's DVD. Not that I won't be able to buy the DVD. I haven't yet, but that episode's got a lot of implications, obviously. Suddenly, you have an idea of what will happen in the future, to Echo and the rest of the Actives and whoever else is involved, and with an end result in mind, you'll start wondering about what exactly will happen so they get there--or whether they can still change that future. So I'll probably wait a bit before I can connect the events of "Epitaph One" with those of the second season premiere. It's a given, but what about those who won't be able to watch that episode? They'll start clueless again? Well, not exactly. Dollhouse creator Joss Whedon promised that the second season premiere, which airs September 25, will revisit the future "Epitaph One" is tossing in. "[But] the actual bulk of the show takes place three months after the events of [season finale] 'Omega'," he told Zap2it. "But we will be visiting that future every now and then." But it wouldn't make a difference, actually. Whedon says he'll still be reintroducing the show to new viewers when the second season comes in. "We have so many regulars and relationships and so much mythology already around the central premise of 'this woman can be anyone' that this episode has a lot of catching up for any viewer whether or not 'Epitaph' was a part of it," he said. "[We want to] build Echo up from nothing ... and really give her a sense of momentum and purpose that will ground the show in a way it couldn't be last year," he added. But I'll still probably buy the DVD because, you know, it makes for a nice addition to the shelf in my living room. And the slow burn continues, and maybe Dollhouse won't be as troubled as it was last year. Source Here
We haven't spoken about fan favorite (and much improved!) series Dollhouse in quite some time here on SideReel. The series was renewed for a second season and will be returning to Fox Fridays on September 18th. Fans of the show may recall that whole unaired 13th episode fiasco. As a refresher, there's an episode of the series floating around - "Epitaph One" - that due to licensing issues will not ever be airing on FOX (it was produced independently by Joss Whedon and company; it also stands alone in terms of continuity with the rest of the series). However, the episode will be shown at the San Diego Comic Con later this month and is also going to be a part of the Season 1 DVD release (dropping July 28th). Fans will certainly want to see the episode so mark your calendars for that DVD release date!

In anticipation of " Dollhouse " season finale tonight (May 8), Fox has released three clips in advance. Alpha's reign of terror continues as his obsession with Echo endangers Caroline's survival. Ballard must make a life-changing decision and one Doll is permanently deactivated while another's shocking past is revealed. In the first clip, Topher reports to Adelle and Boyd that Alpha has taken away Echo and snatched the tracking device off her. The second clip sees Adelle telling Ballard the origin of Alpha and informing the detective that he was once an Active created from a man named Stephen Kepler. The last clip shows Alpha's crazy scheme in converting a woman named Wendy and manipulating Echo. Actor Alan Tudyk has been giving interviews about his character Alpha and what his ultimate goal is. "Everything that Alpha has done has been to get Echo," he said to IGN. "Whenever you see Alpha, he's screwing with the Dollhouse and it's always about his obsession with Echo. It was his plan all along to come get Echo, and that's what it was all about. So, now he has her and he gets to fulfill his plan, which is to make her like him." The finale is called "Omega" but there is actually one more episode which is not going to be aired on TV. "Epitaph One" will go straight to DVD which will be released on July 28 and can be readily pre-ordered at Amazon. Source & Clips
