A sci-fi drama about a woman named Echo and other 'Actives' who are controlled by a shadowy group. Each week, they're programmed with specific personalities in order to service the needs of the wealthy, ranging from hostage negotiation to providing comfort to securing the Dollhouse itself. When finished with the jobs, their minds are wiped clean. Yet, for some, memories linger, and for Echo they become a driving force that she shields from her handlers.
Dollhouse is smart and sleek Sci-Fi at it's finest.Eliza Dushku as programmable person Echo makes for some very solid entertainment. On a show where most of the main characters play a different person every week, you'd think there would be moments of cringe worthy acting. Instead, Dollhouse showcases the talent of it's actors and spectacular storytelling only a Sci-Fi show can pull off.
Unfortunately, Joss' cancellation-curse came with him onto the set of this show! This was so amazing, and I still tell people about it very often. The concept of humans' giving over their lives to be downloaded with alternative personalities/life stories, hired at the whim of rich clients, is just so epic. It would have been nice to get a couple more seasons out of it, I am sure it would have been easily done.
One of my favourite recent sci-fi shows. Fabulous acting, great scripts, brilliant directing. My only complaint is that it finished after only two seasons and in such a final way! I still think fondly of all of the characters. The ending was beautifully thought out, but very tragic. I highly recommend this.
I don't really know anything about this show. But it is from Joss Whedon and is sci-fi. So I am curious to see it. I hope it's good! But if it is good, which I'm sure, then it sucks that it only lasted two seasons.
It was great ! The storyline wax exciting and the actors were great. I loved the character development of Topher, the romance between Victor and Sierra, and Echo's journey throughout the series. I was very sorry to see it end so soon, I wanted more!
So unique and wonderful. The actors are fantastic and although the plot can be a little hard to get into at first, the series rewards your patience. Once you're fully immersed in the Dollhouse world, you can't help but love the characters. It will break your heart in so many wonderful ways.
This show had so much promise! I loved the first season and after that it took such an unexpected and disappointing turn that my rating of the went from a 9/10 (on IMDB) to 7/10. I do think that they could have turned things around if given the chance by the network. Someday if I have time I'll re-watch it and maybe I can appreciate the latter seasons more.
