Dollhouse is a very ambitious show. It has two facts on its side; it is new and very unique. Dollhouse is not a typical show you would get on television, which means its original and gives its viewers something new to look at.
The only thing it lacks is development. We are introduced to Echo; a walking emptiness, which the writers give us no time to appreciate.
I like the idea of the secret organization, however warped, creates the perfect person. Wiping memories with the use of technology.
Overtime I find the liner "Did I fall asleep?" would become a bit redundant and aggravating. Each episode is supposed to reveal a new element to the story, but I do not really find myself relating to anyone in the show, maybe it is because I don't really know who they are.
Dollhouse shows great potential for a good series, but the writers need to smooth out some rough edges. I need to know more about Echo or that person before Echo, more about how this Dollhouse operation and how is it so secretive and how they get their clients. The Officer that keeps poking around seems to be more on the outskirts of the show. I feel that the script needs someone to be poking around. I do not understand his motivations towards Dollhouse.
Why did they use the name Dollhouse to begin with; walking dolls in one location. There are too many unanswered questions left hanging in mid air so early in the series.
There are many pieces which do not fit together. the writing needs a bit of elaboration if viewers are to understand any bit of where the show is headed.
An Article in Entertainment Weekly gives a brief understanding of Dollhouse's future on television.
The show needs a strong foundation, otherwise it may slowly crumble; something oncoming fans would not appreciate.
