.Dollhouse is an American science fiction television series created by writer and director Joss Whedon under Mutant Enemy Productions.^ On Dollhouse I read the series was re-newed only because of fan pressure on the network - it's nothing to do with the show actually being good, having decent writing or Joss Whedon...

.The show revolves around a corporation running numerous underground establishments (known as "Dollhouses") across the globe which program individuals referred to as Actives (or Dolls) with temporary personalities and skills.^ DOLLHOUSE revolves around Echo’s blossoming self-awareness and her desire to discover her true identity.

Wealthy clients hire Actives from Dollhouses at great expense for various purposes. .The series primarily follows the Active known as Echo, played by Eliza Dushku (who also served as producer), on her journey towards self-awareness.^ I think this is seriously the hottest I've ever seen Eliza Dushku.

Plot

.The story follows Echo (Eliza Dushku), a "doll" or "Active" for the Los Angeles "Dollhouse", one of several fictional facilities run by a company which hires out human beings to wealthy clients.^ Confined to a secret facility known as the “Dollhouse,” Echo and the other Actives including SIERRA (Dichen Lachman, “Neighbours”) and VICTOR (Enver Gjokaj, “The Unit”) carry out engagements assigned by ADELLE (Olivia Williams, “X-Men: The Last Stand,” “Rushmore”), one of the Dollhouse leaders.

These "engagements" range from romantic interludes to high-risk criminal enterprises. Each Active has their original memories wiped and exists in a child-like blank state until programmed via the insertion of new memories and personalities for each mission. Actives such as Echo are ostensibly volunteers who have surrendered their minds and bodies to the organization for five-year stints, during which their original personalities are saved on hard drives, in exchange for vast amounts of money and a solution to any other problematic circumstances in their lives. .Echo is unique however in that she remembers small amounts even after personality "wipes", and gradually develops an increasingly cognizant self-awareness and personality.^ DOLLHOUSE revolves around Echo’s blossoming self-awareness and her desire to discover her true identity.

This concept allows the series to examine the notions of identity and personhood.
Within the house, opinions on such matters are divided. .Dollhouse director Adelle DeWitt (Olivia Williams) sees her role as merely giving people what they need; programmer Topher Brink (Fran Kranz)'s view is initially entirely scientific and amoral, apart from brief flashes of moral quandary; while Echo's mentor in the house or "handler", Boyd Langton (Harry Lennix), an ex-cop with an unknown past, is generally concerned with the ethical and theological implications of the Dollhouse's technology, seeing his inside role as an opportunity to limit any collateral damage.^ Confined to a secret facility known as the “Dollhouse,” Echo and the other Actives including SIERRA (Dichen Lachman, “Neighbours”) and VICTOR (Enver Gjokaj, “The Unit”) carry out engagements assigned by ADELLE (Olivia Williams, “X-Men: The Last Stand,” “Rushmore”), one of the Dollhouse leaders.

^ I've been impressed with how they've intertwined the crisis of the week with character development: -Echo's struggle to keep the imprints of her imprints under control after her incident with Alpha -Ballard's learning of the need for patience and subtlety, -Topher's decline into a madness of paradoxical insecurity and genuis -Boyd's measured indifference to cover up his moral confusion paralleling Adelle's similar arc I don't see why Fox would cancel this show when obviously no one is watching TV on Friday night in general.

Each character in the L.A. Dollhouse is forced to confront their own moral complicity in an increasingly downward spiral from moral grey areas to the realization that what the Dollhouse is doing is ultimately immoral and wrong. The Dollhouse's corporate sponsor is a drug research entity known as the Rossum Corporation, whose ultimate goal is revealed to be gaining control over national governments and later even innocent people with no association with the Dollhouse. .Attempting to stop the further spread of the mind-wiping technology, the L.A. Dollhouse vows to take down Rossum and it's mysterious founder whom only Echo's original personality Caroline has met.^ Dollhouse: we get to actually talk to Echo rather than just see that Echo has been wiped every week.

Despite their best efforts, the L.A. Dollhouse has been unsuccessful in stopping the mind-wiping technology from spreading out of control. Rossum executives use multiple bodies to live in decadence while the peoples of the world are enslaved. .A now insane Topher, architect of much of the technology, devises a way of ending the its spread, but at great sacrifice to himself and others.^ The part where he just reaches out and carves Victor's face was a great way to show how far off the deep end he is.

Production

.The series stars Eliza Dushku, who worked with Whedon on the cult television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel.^ DOLLHOUSE: Joss Whedon, creator of groundbreaking cult favorites “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Firefly,” returns to television and reunites with fellow “Buffy” alumna Eliza Dushku for a thrilling new drama, DOLLHOUSE. ECHO (Dushku) is an “Active,” a member of a highly illegal and underground group who have had their personalities wiped clean so they can be imprinted with any number of new personas.

Tim Minear and Buffy producer David Solomon also directed.[9] A viral marketing campaign promoting Dollhouse was started on May 26, 2008.[10]
.Dollhouse was produced by 20th Century Fox Television, Whedon's Mutant Enemy Productions,[11][12] Dushku's Boston Diva Productions, and was granted an initial thirteen-episode production commitment by Fox, with a reported license fee in the range of $1.5 to 2 million per episode.^ Joss Whedon shot a pilot, and then the pilot was scrapped in favor of a new pilot, but for contractual purposes, that unaired pilot counted as part of the 13-episode order — which means Fox only had 12 episodes to deal with.

.Dollhouse, as well as J. J. Abrams' Fringe, aired during its first season with half the commercials and promo spots of most current network dramas, adding about 6 minutes to the shows' run times, as part of a new Fox initiative called "Remote-Free TV".[19] Fox charged a premium price for this advertising space, but did not completely recoup the money that they were spending.^ Fox Programmers need to let go of this fantasy that just because 16 years ago the X-Files managed to build enough of a following that they MOVED it to a better timeslot and it became a hit show, doesn't mean this is the time of show that will perform best during this slot.

In July 2008, Whedon announced he was planning to shoot a separate webisode for every Dollhouse episode produced.[22] The webisodes did not materialize for the first season, however.
.On February 10, 2009, Dushku told reporters in a conference call that Whedon had a 5-year plan for the show, and decided how his characters would evolve through that point.^ My explanation of how the TV business works was straight forward and to the point, and intended to dispel the mis-information that many seem to have, RE what networks do and do not generally care about when deciding when to keep a show on the air, and when a show is and is not profitable.

Episodes

Season 1's 13th episode

On April 9, 2009, Whedon rebutted speculation that Fox was set to cancel the show. .Producer Tim Minear explained that the "missing" 13th episode (entitled "Epitaph One") would be on the DVD release of the season.^ Which is why I wish it hadn't gotten Season 2, because Epitaph One is truly one of the best goddamn series finales I've ever seen.

  • Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news. 1 February 2010 1:48 UTC www.aintitcool.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

.The reason Minear gave for that episode being dropped from the broadcast run was that the Fox network was counting the original first episode ("Echo"), which went unaired, as part of the original 13-episode order; in contrast, the Fox production company was required by contract to have a minimum of 13 completed episodes for international and DVD releases.^ The point of Leno is to run something almost as cheap as an informational but still maintain the dignity of not being forced to run infomercials on a "Big Three" network.

[31] .According to both Minear and Whedon, the producers felt that the original first episode, having been subsequently scrapped entirely and having had its footage reused for other episodes throughout the season, should not be counted as a completed episode as part of their own 13-episode orders for international and DVD distribution but rather as a DVD extra, and thus Whedon produced a new 13th episode on a lower budget to fulfill the contractual requirements for the international broadcasts.^ Like other shows, each season has a few poor episodes, but overall for DC/Superman fans, it has been very enjoyable.

[37] .Among other factors, fan response to the show was seen as a reason for the renewal; Fox's president of entertainment stated that "if we'd canceled Joss's show I'd probably have 110 million e-mails this morning from the fans".[36] As part of the deal, there was a cut in the show's budget,[38] though Whedon stated that this would not affect the second season.^ The show is a thorn in FOX's side, and a HUGE disappoinment, even with it's "low budget" of a million bucks an episode.

After airing the back-to-back episodes in December 2009, the final three episodes aired during January 2010. On January 15, 2010, in the wake of the earthquake tragedy in Haiti, all of the American television networks (ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and The CW) announced a joint telethon for Haiti shown on January 22, 2010. As a result, the series finale of Dollhouse was rescheduled and was shown on January 29, 2010.[50]

Cast and characters

Dollhouse cast. L to R: Paul Ballard, Victor, Echo, Sierra, Topher Brink, Adelle DeWitt, Boyd Langton
The Dollhouse cast consists mainly of Actives (or Dolls) and Dollhouse employees.[51] The Actives at the LA Dollhouse are named after the NATO phonetic alphabet (other Dollhouses are shown to use other naming systems).

Main cast

  • Echo (Eliza Dushku) is an Active and the main character of the series. She is the most popular Active in the Dollhouse, and has shown skills that transcend the limitations of her parameters during the course of her engagements. Prior to having her mind wiped, Echo was a college student and political activist named Caroline Farrell.E-7 Caroline is originally a student activist who accidentally uncovers the Rossum Corporation's illegal activities; her boyfriend is killed in an escape attempt, and Rossum attempts to have her recruited to Adelle DeWitt's Dollhouse.E-7 While on the run from Rossum, Caroline becomes a terrorist devoted to bringing the corporation down, until she is finally captured.E-24 Throughout the series, Echo becomes increasingly self-aware while in her blank state, and later even vows to discover and restore her original self.E-14 On achieving full self-awareness, Echo develops a romantic interest in Paul Ballard. Having learned more about Caroline's potentially murky past, she decides to be her own person.E-20 While condemned to the Attic, she discovers Rossum's weakness and emerges to ally with DeWitt and the LA Dollhouse against Rossum.E-23 While she is uncertain what having become her own person will mean for her, she agrees to be reunited with Caroline's personality to gain crucial information over Rossum.E-24

  • Boyd Langton (Harry J. Lennix) is introduced at the onset of the first season as a former cop and the Dollhouse handler assigned to Echo.^ Dollhouse had a pretty bad first season, but not as bad as those.

    He has doubts about the Dollhouse's ethics, but largely keeps quiet about them. Later in the season, he's promoted to head of security.E-9 His own "morally compromised" past is unrevealed, but it is known he has considerable skills and contacts in disposing of dead bodies.E-17 When Echo returns to the Dollhouse after a three-month absence, he allies himself with Paul and Topher in keeping her self-awareness a secret from the Rossum execs.E-21 When Echo regains Caroline's memories, she discovers that Boyd is one of the two founders of the Rossum Corporation and seemingly installed himself in the Dollhouse to become Echo's handler.E-24 After attacking Echo, Langton's mind is wiped after Topher finishes a remote wiping device. In a doll state, Langton is given a grenade and is commanded to blow up the Rossum building, which he does, killing himself in the process.E-25
  • Topher Brink (Fran Kranz) is the scientist who operates Dollhouse's technology and uses it to imprint new personalities on the Actives. Cynical, ego-driven and seemingly amoral, Topher's knowledge of human behavior allows him to specially craft the various personalities of the Actives for their various missions. .In the second season, Topher faces several moral dilemmas, the first when he is required by Rossum to revitalize a serial killer.^ Rumors said Dollhouse wasn't going to make it through its first season, "Epitaph One" was going to air on Fox, it wasn't going to get a second season...

    E-16 When required to permanently surrender the Active Sierra to her rapist, Nolan Kennard, he returns her as Priya, who then kills Kinnard. Topher and Boyd help Priya cover up the murder, and Priya agrees to return to the Dollhouse as Sierra.E-17 When the LA Dollhouse comes under the control of Matthew Harding, Topher becomes concerned about Rossum's ambitions concerning the Dollhouse technology. He informs Adelle that he has figured out Rossum's plan as well as the technique to imprint any human being remotely, but she betrays him and surrenders it to her superiors.E-20 Following this, Topher aligns with Boyd and Ballard's "conspiracy" when he learns of Echo's full self-awareness.E-21 Topher develops strong romantic feelings for Bennett Halverson, whose genius technological achievements he admired long before he met her in person. .Bennett appears to reciprocate Topher's feelings, but she is killed before they have the chance to develop a more serious relationship.^ I hope they develop more of the Clark & Lois a little bit.

    As the Dollhouse unravels and things spiral out of control, he develops an immense guilty conscience, blaming himself (as inventor of the technology) for the events that unfold. Ultimately he creates technology to reverse the process that has wiped the minds of the general population, but sacrifices his own life in order to deploy it.
  • Paul Ballard (Tahmoh Penikett) is an FBI special agent assigned to the Dollhouse case at the onset of the series; most in the Bureau view the case as a joke, but he makes discovering and rescuing Caroline/Echo an obsession. The Dollhouse assigns active November to spy on him by becoming his girlfriend, Mellie. After breaking into the Dollhouse, he works for them under the condition that November is released,E-12 and later takes the role of Echo's handler. The two of them vow to set the Actives free.E-14 When Echo is left out on the streets, Paul finds her and helps conceal her from the Dollhouse for three months while she develops a full self-awareness. She becomes romantically and sexually attracted to him, but he abstains from sex with her. The two re-enter the Dollhouse to continue their crusade.E-20 .They later form an alliance with Boyd and Topher, but Paul is wiped and left braindead by Alpha.^ Though it left open to interpretation, I got the impression the whirlwind(s) were supposed to be a form of life as they seemingly acted in an intelligent manner independent of Scott's presence/hallucinations.

  • Victor (Enver Gjokaj) is an Active who was originally introduced as Lubov, Paul Ballard's informant inside the Russian mob, before being revealed to be a Doll.E-3 The character is also regularly hired out by Adelle DeWitt herself to be her lover, whom she truly appears to love. In his mind-wiped state, Victor is inexplicably attracted to Sierra despite numerous attempts to wipe away his memories of and feelings for her. E-9 Before entering the Dollhouse, Victor was a War in Afghanistan veteran named Anthony Ceccoli suffering posttraumatic stress disorder (of which he is cured by the Dollhouse). He is restored to this personality in "Stop-Loss",E-22 and aligns with Priya, Echo, and the senior staff of the LA Dollhouse against Rossum. E-23 In the series finale set ten years in the future, Anthony and Priya share a tense relationship due to his reliance on imprinting technology which Priya considers a dangerous obsession. .Priya later realizes he compromises himself only to protect her and their child, and they reconcile near the end of the series.^ It's really a great compromise IF only everything was on it.

He then hires her out periodically for sexual encounters.E-8 During Season 1, she is also raped by her handler in her blank state, only adding to her trauma.E-6 When Sierra is sent to her original rapist and captor permanently, Topher sends Sierra as her original personality Priya, and she kills Kinnard in self-defence.

Marketing

Viral marketing campaign

Promotional posters featuring Eliza Dushku as Echo surrounded by blank mannequins were used to advertise Dollhouse by Fox prior the series' premiere.
On February 9, 2009, Fox launched Dollplay, a participation drama centered around Dollhouse. It involved using interactive webisodes and a user forum to drive a viral marketing campaign. .The campaign asked users on the Fox Dollhouse website to "Save Hazel!"^ Now, since Fox has its cartoon line-up on Sundays...that is not going to happen, save for a special exposition of Dollhouse, using "Family Guy" and "The Simpsons" as a lead-in.
  • Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news. 1 February 2010 1:48 UTC www.aintitcool.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

Hazel was a character trapped inside the Dollhouse in real-time. .The campaign was called "Dollplay" according to the official Fox press release and was created by the company P "a radical production outfit from Sweden".[54] Five videos released in a four-hour span showed Hazel entering a room, turning on the light, and messing with a computer.^ You had, and will have, four genre shows crammed into two hours.

On February 28, 2009, the Dollplay alternate-reality game ended with players saving the fictional Hazel. .After Hazel was saved, she told people that there are "Dollhouses" all over the world that imprint them and change them; these include schools, parents, religion and government.^ How come now all of a sudden all of these people are "going out?"

Music

Reception

Ratings

.The premiere episode of Dollhouse helped Fox double its audience levels among women versus Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and helped the network finish in second place among adults 18–34 and in first place across the key male demographic for the night.^ Hell, more people watched the third Supernatural episode on a tiny network, than the season premiere of a pedigree WHEDON! show on the mighty FOX. Serves them right, Dollhouse had lots of potential, but they make every single bad decision they can.

Critical response

.Season one of Dollhouse has had mixed reviews, with metacritic.com giving it a rating of 57 out of a possible 100.[60] Ellen Gray of Philadelphia Daily News is one of those who gave a positive review, remarking that "Dollhouse is less about the ninja kicks and witty banter than it is about instant transformations, and about making the audience care about a character who's likely to behave differently every time we see her.^ Dollhouse had a pretty bad first season, but not as bad as those.

That Dushku mostly pulls this off is a happy surprise, as is Dollhouse, which has survived Firefly-like trials of its own to get this far."[61] Salon.com reviewer Heather Havrilesky was also positive, commenting that the show's combination of mystery, sly dialogue, and steady flow of action results in a "provocative, bubbly new drama that looks as promising as anything to hit the small screen over the course of the past year."[62]
Alternately, Tom Shales of the Washington Post admitted the premise was intriguing, but described the series as a "pretentious and risible jumble" and that Echo did not "inspire much concern or interest in the audience." He commented that the actors seemed to struggle due to the decor being so "outlandish," stating that it "simply isn't worth the trouble."[63] Brian Lowry of Variety also wrote "Dushku's grasp of this vague, personality-changing character is a bit of a muddle. What's left, then, is a series with a hollow center that doesn't initially make you care about its mentally malleable protagonist."[64] Robert Bianco of USA Today had a more nonchalant view of the series, describing Dollhouse as not boring or ordinary, and that the end result is a show "that Joss Whedon's most devoted fans will debate and embrace, and a mass audience just won't get."[65]
.Many critics felt that the series' first season improved as it progressed.^ Many series I love have unwatchable first seasons.

IGN reviewer Eric Goldman believes that show became much stronger and more compelling with the episodes "Needs" and "A Spy in the House of Love". He opines of the later episodes that, "As a whole this show is definitely working better as we get away from Echo's missions of the week, and from focusing so much on just Echo and letting there be more of a true ensemble feel, with the time split amongst the Dolls."[66] Sarah Hughes of The Independent was unimpressed with the first five episodes but also found that the later episodes became "as involving and addictive as Whedon's best work".[67] Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune liked Dollhouse's "unsettling" tone and found the show to be "unexpectedly moving and complex" during the second half of the first season. She called the second season renewal "a good day for unconventional television".[68]
.In response to lagging ratings, Fox Television officially canceled the show midway through the second season but allowed the remaining Season 2 episodes to be filmed and broadcast.^ Even if this show was on the CW or cable a 1.0 rating would be very hard to justify a full season much less a third.

^ Like other shows, each season has a few poor episodes, but overall for DC/Superman fans, it has been very enjoyable.

Most of the show's plot elements are correspondingly resolved by the close of the Season 2.

Whedon and Dushku both worked together on the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its darker spin-off Angel. Tim Minear, who also worked with Buffy and Angel is also involved. The series is made by 20th Century Fox Television. Twelve episodes of Dollhouse aired on FOX. Two more episodes that were not shown on Television will be on the DVD collection of episodes.

The Story

In Dollhouse, Eliza Dushku plays a young woman named Echo. She is one of a group of men and women who can have "personality packages" put into their minds. These packages can include many things, for example, memory, skills, language and muscle memory. These people live in a futuristic dormitory/laboratory named the "Dollhouse". They are given special personas as part of the personality packages. These are used to do many different types of assignments. For example, the jobs could be romantic, adventurous, strange, or illegal. After the assignment, the information is removed from their minds and they are left in a child-like state with no memories. The series follows Echo as she begins to remember things even though her mind is constantly being erased and new memories implanted into it.[2]
