This series revolves around a group of men and women who can be neurally imprinted with "personality packages". Sheltered in a secret futuristic dormitory/laboratory named the "Dollhouse," these individuals are imprinted with customized personas for performing any of a wide variety of assignments, which can be romantic, adventurous, or illegal...

Summer Glau the new Dr Strangelove complete with glove!
It was a stunning performance by her, and everyone really in these two episodes, especially Enver & Fran once again. Enver NAILED how to play that part and the end with both of them in the same room was superb.
Eliza is a fantastic actor. I wouldn't begin to guess who would have done a better job. I loved her in 'Tru Calling' Another good one that was axed. Actually I preferred tru calling to dollhouse.
Tru Calling was one of the worst shows of all time, and being beautiful isn't the same as having the ability to act. It is strange though how the two people who made this show happen, Eliza & Joss are the two things that are the worst parts of it. The episodes that rock are the ones not written by Joss with as little of Eliza in as possible.
she was great in buffy and not bad in dollhouse
True, but the character in buffy was just her being her, she failed in Dollhouse because it was one of the most challenging roles on TV, and she looks even worse because the relative unknowns around her aced it.
Did someone say beautiful equaled a good actor? I certainly didn't. Actually I don't recall mentioning her looks. I think she is great in dollhouse, even though I could take it or leave it. Tru calling was better.
Another one bites the dust
This weeks Dollhouse double bill was great, and also the first time in the history of the show that Eliza Dushku gave a good performance.
It is such a shame they cancelled Dollhouse before it reached it's prime. Two of the best episodes to date. Fantastic story, fantastic performances and lots more to look forward to. I can't wait to see how it all ends.
Episode 10 of Dollhouse was superb, why couldn't every episode of this show have been written by Mo Tancharoen for she rocks a big fat one.
The last few episodes have been great.
A real humdinger.
I knew she would be on board. Three weeks to the next one"sigh"...
So, Echo and the woman boss are working together?
Not since Star Wars, Electric Sheep and FireFly have I seen such brillant Sci Fi writing and twisting. Just episode 10 deserves an award for tieing the whole two seasons together into a totally understandable story. Now Epitaph makes total sense.
Excellent story bring on the last three episodes and screw FOX.
The last episode was wicked. Well worth a Friday night.
The Dollhouse finale, titled 'Epitaph 2: The Return', follows on from the events in the season one finale and sees Echo and her surviving Dollhouse crew attempt to restore order to a devastating future before mankind is eliminated.
Ok, what the hell is going on?
Where the hell did my post go?
Last night was good. Getting closer to the end. Wow who saw that coming?
Shame that just when the show gets really good -- poof! It goes
bub bye. And I was really enjoying it!
Ok, that was superb. I'm immensely impressed what Team Whedon has managed to pull out of the bag to tie this story up and can't wait for Epitaph Two in 2 weeks time.
So we are nearing the end of this show then? Pity, it's hotting up.
How do you follow that up?
A great end to the show if a little 'typically whedon'
I want this show remade in 5 years or so and for Joss to have nothing to do with it, although I would like Maurissa Tancharoen to be heavily involved, perhaps run it and sod it lets cast Felicia Day as Echo, provided she is ready to train hard for the role.
i was disappointed to no end I found it very choppy no flow to it tried to cram to much into an 1 show
should have been at least 2hrs
there was no expansion of the villains no expansion of how the got to where there were. It seemed fox just wanted it over. All in all it could have been much better
@capt - you have to make allowances for the fact that Fox killed the show mid-narrative, and there wasn't much room for manouevre in bringing things to a close. I guess 2x13 was trying to cover the ground that season 3 would have covered. I felt that I did get some closure anyway.
Anyone who - like me - felt in tune with Echo's final act would probably enjoy "The Host" by Stephanie Meyer - it has a lot to say about interactions between entities inhabiting the same body.
@Capt you have to go back and watch last years 13th episode it will give you a few lead ins.
Story line reminiscent of Robert Heinleins "I Will Fear No Evil"
At least it had some closure, unlike Kyle XY and other shows they cut off and left us all hanging. Grrr
I loved the finale. It was perfect.

we want a movie!!!!! we want a movie!!!!!! (in capitals)
No we don't, the story is over.
Best we can hope for is that someone has the balls to remake the story in a few year without Whedon's (lack of) writing skill.
Stories over but no explaination of how Alpha became the good guy??
From the earlier episodes, Alpha obviously wanted to destroy the Dollhouse - which in his case meant first and foremost the dollhouse in which he had been an Active. I don't see that aim being inconsistent with what we saw him doing in 2x13. Rather, the main players that we saw in 2x13 - all of them opposed to Rossum in one way or another - included several who would have been Alpha's main adversaries in the earlier episodes. It is they, rather than Alpha, who have changed.
It was mentioned about how Alpha was more in control now, thats why he left before the brain bomb went off, he wasn't sure what was going to happen to him, would he reset to a psycho or not. He went away just in case.
i loved this show it had a lot going for it , they should have had a season with a war between the dollhouses
Yes, they should have.
