I agree with many viewers that Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse is getting better as it goes, and hope Fox has the sense to renew both it and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. I think they make a great Friday double feature, especially now that Battlestar Galactica is over (sniff) and when they’re on, they’re on.
In general, I think the best Dollhouse eps have been the ones that focus on the mythology, and not just Echo.
I have some questions about last night’s episode “Briar Rose”, and since Sepinwall hasn’t posted yet, I’m squirming with impatience to wonder online about them. Don’t read on if you haven’t yet seen it, though I’ll try to be vague.
Wow, how about that reveal? Nice one.
I thought the “Victor” actor did a great job channeling the other character he was imprinted with.
Good fight scene with Ballard. Penikett practice Muay Thai and does his own fighting. I didn’t notice if the other actor was doing his own fighting.
Did you notice that “Whiskey” was an address to someone in the room, not a request for a drink? (Whiskey is W in the NATO’s phonetic alphabet word, the naming device for the dolls.) Which of those present is a doll? Topher, Adele, Boyd, Dr. Saunders? I think they strongly hinted in the “Spy in the House of Love” ep that Adele could be a doll. Are they all dolls?
And the final scene in the elevator. As they say on 30 Rock
