I've always been a big fan of Joss Whedon so decided to give the show a try even though a few reviews i've seen have said that it was boring.
The idea behind the show is very creative, dolls or actives are imprinted with personalities to carry out fantasies or roles for clients.
Each episode uses Echo as a new doll role which I thought would make it hard to like a character as they keep changing, but the underlying theme of the show is what really makes a person. Echo plays a different role each episode but she is still there, developing connections which continue outside of her character state.
As the series progresses you learn more about the characters, how they came to be in the dollhouse, and who they were beforehand.
The first few episodes start off a little slow which is to be expected seen as they are explaining the dollhouse.
There is some good action scenes and it is well worth a watch, don't give up on it early on stick with it as the show grows and you should appreciate it.
