Dollhouse has definitely become more interesting of late, with a more layered, complex plotline giving us more to invest in. But "Meet Jane Doe" reminded us once more that among this show's fundamental issues is its main character, and how un-engaging she is (I swear, the accidental engagement puns are just impossible to avoid!).
Last time we saw Echo, she was in Washington, DC.
