Storyline

Echo is one of several "Actives" in the elite and illegal criminal organization known as the Dollhouse, which is run by the shady international entrepreneur Adelle DeWitt. Through different personality downloads, Echo plays the role of a love struck girl on a romantic weekend, and then a ruthlessly efficient kidnapping negotiator when a wealthy client hires Dollhouse to look for his missing daughter. With the help of her handler Boyd Langdon, and "programed" by tech specialist Topher Brink, Echo goes out to rescue the girl, but her memory imprints cause some complications. Meanwhile, FBI Agent Paul Ballard is struggling with his assignment to uncover information on the Dollhouse. The chase has destroyed his marriage and is wrecking his career when both his superiors and colleagues refuses to believe in it's existence. But it doesn't seem that he'll stop until he uncovers the truth. Written by matt-282

If this show will be canceled, it'll be the writers' fault.
13 February 2009 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

Quite honestly, I wasn't too excited for this show, but it still managed to let me down.

The concept(on paper) looks good, but in execution, it's horrendous. How can you relate to a character with no personality, and be interested in a plot that's only interesting in it's setup phase? Let me explain it. Each episode will deal with a small story of Dushku's character(and obviously, sometimes, others too) taking a "role". The scenes before that(Dollhouse scenes) are fairly good. But once she gets on the mission, it's just like any other crime show.

The supporting case COULD make up for the lead's dullness, but they don't. I mean Fringe -- Olivia Dunham is pretty dull, but the rest of the cast is strong. Not here.

I gave Dollhouse a fair chance - I sat through the pilot, and didn't look elsewhere. If I was watching this on TV, I probably would've turned it off halfway. Thank god for DVR.
