The thrilling Dollhouse reunites Buffy The Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon (Firefly, Serenity) and Eliza Dushku (Angel). Echo is an 'Active' - someone whose memories have been wiped and replaced. Hired for nefarious gains, she acts with no memory of before. Can she rediscover her true identity before it's too late?

 Interesting Concept that Never Fufilled its Potential

Top 100  Reviewer Top 100 DVD Reviewer

Dollhouse told the story of a young woman, known as Echo, who is kept in a place known only to the most rich and powerful. Whilst in the Dollhouse their minds are wiped leaving them in a childlike state but when required they can be programmed to meet the wishes of the organisations clients. If you want a highly trained bodyguard or a master thief the Dollhouse is the place to go.

From the opening episode the show follows Echo on her various assignments whilst simultaneously raising questions about who Echo really is and why she finds herself in the Dollhouse. Any show created by Josh Whedon will always get my attention but for the most part Dollhouse lacks the magic that made Buffy, Angel and Firefly such a joy to watch. In a similar way to Tru Calling, another show starring Dushku, the weekly assignments did become a little repetitive and it was only when the series hinted at a bigger picture towards the end the first season that the viewers were given an idea as to Whedons overall plan for the show, making far more interesting viewing in the process.

Despite a number of negative comments about Eliza Dushkus ability to play such a difficult role she, for me at least, does a capable job and the supporting cast are arguably even better. Perhaps surprisingly however from the man that gave us Xander, Mal Reynolds and Lorne the show did lack truly memorable characters with many coming across as slightly generic. By the time the show came back for a second season ratings were down and the writing was on the wall. As a result, despite a slight improvement audiences failed to return and the show was cancelled.

Perhaps if the show had focused more on the bigger story from the start (rumours are the network forced Whedon into the weekly assignment formula) it would have succeeded but in the end Dollhouse was an interesting concept that never truly fulfilled its potential.

 Intelligent sci-fi.

I bought this DVD after enjoying Joss Whedon's Firefly and wasn't dissapointed. Dollhouse is a exciting and intelligent TV program with good acting.It's always enjoyable but isn't quite as riveting as some series like 24. Both series are equally as good.
