This morning I finished watching episode 12 of Joss Whedon’s latest TV show Dollhouse. I can’t begin to describe just how much win there is in the latter episodes of this series (starting from episode 6, ‘Man on the Street’).
All I can say to anyone out there who got disappointed and stopped watching the show early on is: start watching it again. It’s seriously worth at very many levels. (Though I have to admit that some of my love for Firefly has been transferred to this show as well. You’ll know what I mean when you see it.)
For more on how awesome Dollhouse is, read Charlie Jane Anders article on io9 called ‘Why Dollhouse Really is Joss Whedon’s Greatest Work’. The title might be a bit of an exaggeration but Anders makes a number of good points, some of which appeal particularly to serious fans of the science fiction genre (like me). The numerous comments at the end of the article are…er, varied and interesting, too.
Meanwhile, I fear I must wait patiently till the Season 1 DVD is released because the latest news is that the show’s 13th episode, which was filmed but not aired, will go straight to DVD. And we might get to see earlier versions of the re-done pilot in the DVD extras as well.
Fox had better not cancel the show.
