Dollhouse

Posted in Sci-Fi on February 14, 2009 by neoncyber2001

I watched the first episode of Joss Wendon new show Dollhouse tonight. I have to say that I’m a big fan of good ol Joss and certainly wasn’t disappointed. The first episode didn’t jump out and grab you by the throat like Fire Fly but it had it’s own merits. I made it a point not to read too much about the show before the premier (apart from an NPR interview with Mr Wendon) so as not to be spoiled by misconceptions and hype. More suspenseful than Firefly and begins to ask deeper questions. What is consensual? What is the difference between a person and there personality? Are our personality just the way we react to our memories? Is it ok to hurt if we wont remember it? The show slowly but surely ratcheted up the tension and by the end of the episode you were pretty hooked. Great acting by lots of pretty new faces and a few familiar ones. I don’t know if Dollhouse will stand up to Firefly, Buffy or Angel yet. But I’m definitely going to keep watching.
