When Topher meets Clive Ambrose, he greets him by saying, "Third richest man in the country; nominated for a Nobel Prize..." According to, "The names of the nominees cannot be revealed until 50 years later," so Topher cannot have known this, unless, of course, he himself nominated Ambrose. See more »


Topher Brink: [infected Topher is talking to Victor-as-NSA-Agent on the phone] Listen to me carefully. I've got a huge phalanx of machines that go "PING!" And this drug is carried by anyone exposed to it... through touch! It is mandated that you get any Rossum operatives off the grounds and send them back here.

27 March 2009 | by (Brooklyn, NY) – See all my reviews

As Eliza Dushku said in her interview with the Onion AV Club, "Dollhouse" doesn't really become a true "Joss Whedon show" until episode 6, after which it just keeps getting better and better. With this episode it's becoming clear that she wasn't just blowing smoke.

After last week's brilliant, bitter-sweet show, this week delivers the heady mix of hilarity combined with real menace that marks Whedon and his collaborators at their best. Wonderfully creepy moments sneak up on us throughout this episode, giving us a jolt, a shiver and a laugh (not always in that order), all the while advancing the mythos of the "Dollhouse" and the development of our main characters, showing depths and humanity beyond their personal facades and biochemical programming.

Tell your friends to start watching now. This just became the show to beat.
