Dollhouse Closes Its Doors - Series Finale Tonight - Featured

Dollhouse airs its series finale tonight - Epitaph Two: Return.



While in some ways it is upsetting that the series has to end right as it seems to have found its groove, you could also argue that its cancellation was the necessary catalyst for the series to turn from lackluster into awesome. So, file Dollhouse under the 'short-lived' gem category, put it on your DVD shelf next to Firefly - and accept that some shows were just not meant to live forever (and some writers/creators/producers were just not meant to work for FOX...).


Here's a roundup of some Dollhouse goodies to get you prepped for tonight's finale:

I am glad that Dollhouse was allowed by Fox to finish out the storyline. So many networks cancel shows without giving fans closure.
I also feel now that Dollhouse was meant to be only a two season show. It is perfect that way it is and in true Joss style he satisfied me and broke my heart at the same time. Joss' style is very niche and I love that. His style reminds me of more British TV writing where shows are only meant to last a short while rather than 6 or more seasons. Sometimes it dilutes the story when that happens. Yes, I would have love to spent more time with the characters but the storyline and timeline is and are perfect.
I cannot wait for my next adventure with Joss.

I agree heatheranne the show was made for two seasons and people need to realize that. It would have been horrible to stretch it out. Just like in the written word, Some stories are meant to be short stories and others are meant to be novels.

is anyone else thinking how messed up it is that Echo's true love now exists as an imprint inside her own mind?

i hav to disagree: joss whedon could totally hav made it work while 2 seasons does seem like enough, dollhouse could hav gone a long way, but i guess not enough ppl understood that. Oh well, guess its time to wait for joss whedon's new masterpiece

I reckon three seasons would have been perfect :)quite sad though how Ballard died and all that's left is the imprint in Echo's mind. But what exactly did happen to her after the pulse? That part is still left pending for me. So did she remain as Echo?

Echo stayed echo with all the other imprints in her head including Carolines, because if i heard correctly, those who stayed in the dollhouse or somewhere below ground was not affected by the pulse, because Priya didn't want her memories to be erased since she had Victor(Anthony) and their son. In my opinion i thought it would have been way better to put the stuff that happened in between the years, so many years just skipped by D: I'm curious to what had happened, but overall i loved the series.

I just finished watching Dollhouse season 2 online. To say Joss Whedon is a genius seems cliche, but to be moved as much by a scfi storyline and evolving development of its characters as I have this season is rare for me. This has been as good as reading a good novel could ever be. I am sorry to see the end, but it is possible to write "Life after the Dollhouse" in print or a movie. I hope Mr. Whedon brings back our love affair with these interesting people at some future time. Long live Echo and her entourage!
