We finally enter the mysterious Attic - the secret vault where the Dollhouse keeps damaged actives and problematic employees unconscious and in a perpetual state of terror. Adelle has had Echo sent ...
Set after the events in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), Sarah Connor and her son, John, try to stay under-the-radar from the government, as they plot to destroy the computer network, Skynet, in hopes of preventing Armageddon.
Five hundred years in the future, a renegade crew aboard a small spacecraft tries to survive as they travel the unknown parts of the galaxy and evade warring factions as well as authority agents out to get them.
The show follows an organization that employs mind-wiped humans known as Dolls who are implanted with false memories and skills for various missions and tasks. When they are not 'at work' they are living in a real life Dollhouse which gives the show the name. One of those mind-wiped humans, a young woman named Echo, is slowly starting to become aware of herself and what's going on - all the while somebody on the outside is trying to bring the Dollhouse down while getting closer to Echo - possibly not aware that she is one of the Dolls he is after.

Season One is 13 episodes long, but only 12 were actually aired. The reason for this is that the original pilot was scrapped (the other episodes being altered accordingly), leaving 12 to air on TV. However, the series had already been sold to foreign markets as a full 13 episodes. To accommodate this, an extra episode was produced at half-budget: "Epitaph One" takes place in an After The End scenario, stars Felicia Day of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (2008) and The Guild (2007) fame. Epitaph One, as well as the original unaired pilot "Echo", have both been included on the Season One DVD. See more »
One of the BEST hours of TV I've Seen In A Long Time!
I've been waiting for this show for a long time, and I've been thrilled so far!
Granted, the synopsis of the show that I had read didn't sound like something I would be greatly interested in, I thought I'd give it a chance. And, I'm VERY happy that I did. The pilot left me looking forward to Friday all week long. And when the second episode did arrive, I'm not sure I took more than 5 breaths all hour. I was too busy taking in every little bit I could. And when it was over, I watched it again.
It does make me wonder why Fox would put it in a slot where it might get as many viewers as it could. But, I have no faith that if people just turn on their TV's they'll be hooked. I can't seem to turn it off.
My only complaint? It's not on 5 nights a week!
